NAB 2011: Chyron Highlights Axis, Lyric Pro Graphics

At the 2011 NAB Show, Chyron will highlight the power of its AXIS Graphics platform, a unique cloud-based service is designed specifically for broadcasters as well as the latest generation of Lyric Pro graphics software.

Chyron says AXIS simplifies, streamlines, and facilitates the graphics creation workload across many users in a broadcast operation, from reporters to production assistants to news producers.

AXIS provides broadcast production staff with pre-built templates that they can leverage for quick creation of graphics for multiple outlets, including websites, mobile devices, and print publications.

Also look for Chyron’s Lyric PRO 8 graphics creation software continues to put the broadcaster in control of the graphics. With new scriptless conditional intelligent transitions and delivery of superior-quality real-time 3D animations, Lyric PRO 8 enables users to improve the look of on-air graphics with ease and accuracy.

And cloud-based content-creation tools have been extended to Lyric PRO 8 with the introduction of Web-enabled control over Lyric messages and playout. With native support for stereoscopic 3D, scriptless transitions, and touch screen-enabled graphics, Lyric PRO 8 is a worldwide leader for sports and news applications.

Chyron’s Channel Box², the next-generation channel branding system that features 2D/3D design with a complete data acquisition toolset for all branding applications, will also be highlighted at NAB. Built on Chyron’s Lyric technology, Channel Box² users can access any data — RSS feeds, traffic, financial, weather, elections, closing tickets, promos, snipes, and more — and publish it on-air anywhere, anytime.

Lastly, Chyron will also demo its award-winning Quintette newsroom graphics production and playback platform. The platform has gained acclaim for its straightforward graphic asset management, the ease with which its users can control four channels of animated graphics, and its built-in electronic order management feature.

Using Quintette, producers and journalists can create, order, and add graphics to their stories within or outside of the news environment. Maintaining complete control over content, news directors and production personnel can very quickly take graphics-rich stories to air.
