IBC 2017: All-software workflows for news and sports from ChyronHego
At IBC2017, ChyronHego will showcase its latest product innovations enabling end to end, all-software workflows for both news and sports production. ChyronHego will continue to discuss all-software production workflows running in a standard IT infrastructure, such as the VPX Virtual Production Server introduced at the 2017 NAB Show. ChyronHego will also highlight its latest developments in cooperation with Cisco that showcase end to end live production running in virtualised environments on stand 7.D11.
ChyronHego will showcase CAMIO 4.3, the latest update of ChyronHego’s graphic asset management server. With this version, CAMIO brings powerful new editing, file distribution, and virtualisation capabilities to the CAMIO Universe, ChyronHego’s comprehensive software-based newsroom production ecosystem. CAMIO 4.3 includes new graphic scheduling capabilities for LUCI5, the company’s HTML5-based, modular user interface for newsroom producers. With LUCI5, producers are now able to browse, create, and order images and video assets from CAMIO and then schedule graphic playback for their automation systems, making their news workflows smoother and more flexible.
CAMIO 4.3 also includes HubDrive, a Dropbox-like folder synchronisation and file distribution system that empowers art departments to distribute CAMIO content automatically to a network of playout devices. In addition, CAMIO is now able to run in virtualised environments such as ChyronHego’s VPX Virtual Production Server platform, as well as cloud-based services such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
For the first time in Europe, ChyronHego will showcase its new VPX Virtual Production Server, a virtual server platform for hosting end to end live production workflows. By enabling broadcast news operations to run entire content creation and playout workflows in a virtualised, IT-based environment, VPX powers highly efficient, cost effective, and easy to manage production operations for news, sports, and other programs. At IBC2017, ChyronHego will introduce new capabilities for VPX including an optional multi-channel SDI bridge for integration with traditional, hybrid, and IT-based infrastructures.
ChyronHego will also unveil LyricX 3.2, the latest version of its LyricX 64-bit graphics creation and playout platform. With the new release, LyricX features even tighter integration with the CAMIO graphic asset management server to drive the industry’s most powerful template-based newsroom graphics workflows, and support for the SMPTE ST 2110 IP protocol. LyricX 3.2 also includes an enhanced display matrix that gives users the ability to work with multiple video inputs, as well as new 3D modeling features and enhancements to Live Assist Panels, the user interface and control panel creation tool in ChyronHego’s Live Assist playout automation system family.
