Chyron Addresses Cloud-based Technologies at CCW
As part of Content & Communications World, Chyron will be hosting a session in the Presentation Theater on Thursday, Oct. 13, from 2-2:30 p.m. The presentation, titled “Cloud 2.0,” will address the rise of cloud-based technologies within the broadcast and content creation communities. Specifically, the session will examine the benefits to implementing a cloud-based graphics creation platform and look at how today’s leading editing and publishing software can be integrated effectively within a cloud-based workflow. The presentation will be led by Chyron CTO William Hendler.
“With the increasing industry demand for high-quality, cost-effective graphics on demand, Chyron is looking forward to showcasing Axis World Graphics at HD World 2011,” said Bonnie Barclay, vice president and chief marketing officer at Chyron. “Broadcasters deploying our cloud-based graphics creation platform save both time and money, dramatically enhancing production workflow and efficiency while providing their viewers with state-of-the-art, visually appealing 2D and 3D graphics.”
Axis World Graphics is 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 package.
Combining award-winning technology and functionality, proven integration, and point-and-click customization, Axis World Graphics allows users to create templates in Chyron’s award-winning Lyric PRO 8 software, further streamlining integration within the broadcaster’s existing workflow or within Chyron’s BlueNet workflow.
Several new features have recently been introduced to the system, including fully integrated electronic order management, asset management, and integration with Final Cut Pro video editing, all of which are designed for ease of use and maximum workflow efficiency. Axis World Graphics empowers broadcast production staff to access prebuilt templates that they can leverage for quick creation of graphics for multiple outlets, including websites, mobile devices, and print publications.
Graphics creation that once took hours now takes minutes, saving time and money and enabling artists to concentrate on high-end design. The result is a fast return on investment, followed by substantial savings in operations.
