News-Press & Gazette Company to Extend ChyronHego’s BlueNet Graphics Workflow Across Nine Broadcast Locations
News-Press & Gazette Company (NPG) will extend its ChyronHego BlueNet graphics creation and playout workflow across nine of its news-producing stations. NPG will refit seven stations with ChyronHego’s industry-leading asset management, graphics creation and playout technology, in addition to undergoing system and software upgrades at two of its existing ChyronHego-powered stations.
“NPG’s decision to roll out BlueNet demonstrates the scalability of the solution which meets both the operational needs and budgets of small to medium-size TV markets, as well as larger markets,” said Kathy Power, senior vice president of worldwide sales at ChyronHego. “ BlueNet is a powerful solution that will enable NPG to speed up its workflow and achieve a high-end graphical presentation.”
“Efficiency, quality, support and cost were key factors when considering the right workflow solution for NPG,” said Jim DeChant, director of technical operations at News-Press & Gazette Broadcasting. “As an existing ChyronHego customer, we are already familiar with the reliability of the company’s support and technology. The new systems integrate into our MOS environment, allowing for the quick creation and delivery of great-looking graphics to air.”
NPG’s Lyric PRO-powered BlueNet workflow includes ChyronIP, a character generator specifically designed for the NewTek® TriCaster™; Mosaic™, ChyronHego’s flagship graphics creation and playout system; Graffiti, a portable backpack-ready character generator; CAMIO, a flexible asset management server; and ISQ, ChyronHego’s centralized play out control device.
