ChyronHego’s Toolbox provides broadcasters with the flexibility to quickly capture content from a PC or the web and then convert it to air on live TV with just a few simple clicks. Toolbox allows broadcasters to utilize any desktop content, play back any codec, and use content from video communication tools such as Skype, Google Hangouts, and Viber in their productions. Key features of the Toolbox include a grabber, VLC plug-in, and generic return signal for video calls with a separate overlay for each function.
The grabber feature allows users to select and grab any PC or web content such as a YouTube clip, PowerPoint slide, or Google Earth location and put it on air. The VLC plug-in takes troubled video files with unknown codecs and allows the user to drop the files in the VLC player and easily play back video files in the broadcast. The generic return signal option allows users to include remote interviews over Google Hangouts, Skype, and Viber in a live broadcast.
