NAB 2017: ChyronHego To Show Latest CAMIO Universe Product Developments
Launched only a year ago, ChyronHego’s (SL1210) CAMIO Universe is transforming news operations as broadcasters continue to migrate to all-software environments and standard off-the-shelf IT technologies, including virtualized server environments.
At the NAB 2017, ChyronHego will showcase the latest product developments driving global adoption of the CAMIO Universe — including the newest version of LyricX, the world’s leading broadcast graphics creation and playout solution; the Prime Graphics Ecosystem; Metacast weather graphics; and the company’s solutions for augmented graphics and virtual sets — all under the control of playout automation.
Building on the acquisition of Click Effects in 2016, ChyronHego will also showcase the industry’s most powerful solutions for arena production and in-venue experience technology, all in a software-based, unified workflow running in a standard IT infrastructure.
“Many in our industry are focused on IP now, but we believe that 2017 is ‘the year of IT’ — meaning we’re seeing a shift toward the implementation of all-software-based workflows running on standard IT infrastructure instead of new investments in proprietary hardware,” says Johan Apel, President and CEO, ChyronHego. “With the CAMIO Universe, we’re helping our broadcast news customers make this transition smoothly and cost-effectively with solutions for maximizing workflow efficiencies. Other examples on display will be our end-to-end workflows for arena production and in-venue experience. At the 2017 NAB Show, we’re looking forward to demonstrating how these and other solutions can provide a future-proof foundation for the highly engaging broadcast graphics of today and tomorrow.”

ChyronHego’s CAMIO Universe is a comprehensive, software-based newsroom production ecosystem that enables a producer-driven approach to news content creation and playout. At NAB 2017, ChyronHego will introduce its newest innovations for the CAMIO Universe, including an improved template-creation workflow and the ability to run the solutions inside a virtualized IT server environment for dramatically lowered total cost of ownership and the ability to perform on-demand scaling. In addition, as part of its CAMIO Universe presentation, ChyronHego will highlight the release of the new web edition of the LUCI interface and new features for Axis World Graphics, the company’s hosted graphics-creation solution. Improvements to Axis World Graphics include a local order-delivery feature and the debut of a new Axis Maps user interface.
A Comprehensive Ecosystem for Scalable, Modular Graphics Production
ChyronHego will introduce PRIME 2.5, an all-new, high-performance update of the company’s renowned PRIME Graphics Ecosystem.
PRIME 2.5 is a resolution-agnostic, software-based solution that leverages advanced 64-bit GPU- and CPU-based technologies for maximum power in rendering graphics and effects. With the ability to output multiple channels of graphics and clips from a single system that formerly required multiple solutions, customers gain more functionality and features at a lower cost.
PRIME 2.5 news at the 2017 NAB Show includes multiple new design features and a brand-new Touch Graphics Module.
Robust and Effortless Ticker Branding
At NAB 2017, ChyronHego will unveil version 5 of NewsTicker, the broadcast industry’s most widely used ticker branding solution for effortless creation of ticker displays. NewsTicker is a robust web-based platform for managing all content (automated, manual, and viewer-generated) and broadcast automation. With version 5, NewsTicker has been completely re-engineered with an all-new user interface. Also, NewsTicker 5 is now optimized for all modern browsers and platforms, including mobile devices and tablets.
