Chyron will be showcasing its latest products at the Australian Broadcast Exhibition (ABE) 2012. The products on display will include:
SHOUT Social Media Application
First introduced at the 2012 NAB Show, SHOUT is a stand-alone software application that enables broadcasters to bring social media commentary into their live broadcasts quickly and easily. SHOUT gives one or more users the ability to monitor, select, adjust, and route social media conversations to broadcast graphics systems, either for on-air playback or for storage as data files for later use. Multiple instances of SHOUT running across a facility can be used simultaneously by different staff members to view content and moderate the same playback list.
Users can add, remove, and authenticate multiple social media accounts from sources like Twitter, Facebook, RSS, and Mass Relevance, each of which has its own playback controller, playback-style settings, and filters, as well as an automated find-and-replace feature that defines words and phrases that will be automatically replaced with new text.
BlueNet Graphics Creation and Playout
At ABE 2012, Chyron will demonstrate BlueNet, a comprehensive solution that fully addresses broadcasters' requirements for streamlined end-to-end graphics workflows. BlueNet leverages Chyron's acclaimed suite of graphics tools for ordering and graphics asset management, collaborative graphics creation, and real-time playout. Integration with Axis World Graphics, Chyron's cutting-edge cloud-based services offering, extends the power of BlueNet workflows to speed even the most advanced graphics to air.
In fast-paced news or sports workflows that require many complex graphics, BlueNet minimizes the cycle time from creation to air. Order management tools allow producer-driven content to move smoothly into a rundown, and easily accessible templates enable instant and efficient collaboration in preparing graphics.
Axis World Graphics
On display at ABE 2012 will be Chyron's Axis World Graphics, the world's only cloud-based graphics creation system designed specifically for broadcasters. Axis World Graphics simplifies, streamlines, and facilitates the graphics creation process, enabling artists, reporters, production assistants, and news producers to create broadcast-quality graphics using their own graphics packages. The system combines award-winning technology and functionality, proven integration, and point-and-click customization. Several new features recently introduced to the system include fully integrated electronic order management, asset management, and integrations with Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro video editing, all of which are designed for ease of use and maximum workflow efficiency.
Channel Box2 (v.4.6) Branding and Promo System
Chyron will showcase its Channel Box2 (v.4.6), channel branding system that features 2D/3D design with a complete data acquisition toolset for all branding applications. Built on Chyron's Lyric technology, Channel Box2 allows users to access any data - RSS feeds, traffic, financial, weather, elections, tickers, promos, snipes, social media, and more - and publish it on the air anywhere, anytime.
Channel Box2 (v.4.6) software boasts an asset viewer that allows an operator to validate, package, and query assets, as well as data binding tools for improved panel control. Additional features include locking scenes and copy/paste/reverse functionality, all of which can be coupled with a scene list that allows groups of scenes to be created and stylized.
