HeliPaint Takes ChyronHego’s Advanced Telestration and Tracking Technology to New Heights

HeliPaint Provides Helicopter-Borne Reporters With Customizable, Easy-to-Use Enhancement Tools For Aerial Neews Coverage

ChyronHego today announced the launch of HeliPaint, an in-the-air news telestration system designed to meet the specific needs of aerial coverage. HeliPaint brings ChyronHego’s acclaimed Paint teles­tration and tracking technology to the chopper in a rugged, compact 1RU chassis. The system equips helicopter-borne reporters with customizable, easy-to-use tools for enhancing news and breaking news coverage. Powered by ChyronHego’s real-time image-tracking engine, HeliPaint locks graphics in place even as the camera moves and telestration can be performed over a live stream or still freezes.

“HeliPaint packs a small footprint and is designed to withstand the many rigors of flight with ease,” said ChyronHego Product Manager, Mark Bowden. “In addition to its lightweight, rugged chassis, HeliPaint features a streamlined inter­face with large icons that make tool selection quick and simple, a high-visibility LCD touch screen that can be seen in the brightest sunlight, and mobile processing that allows the system to consume minimal power from a 12V source with no AC required.”

ChyronHego will showcase HeliPaint at NAB 2014 Show at booth SL1110, April 7-10.
