NAB 2018: ChyronHego To Present First Virtual Trade Show Production

At NAB 2018, ChyronHego will present the first-ever fully software-based studio production to be broadcast live from a trade show floor. Showcasing the company’s range of live production software products, the ChyronHego Live Studio Show will run in a completely virtualized environment and will be broadcast in two parallel production workflows: as a traditional ground-based SDI production and running in a private data center powered by Cisco.

“Nothing speaks ‘proof of concept’ louder than a real-world, working production, and that’s why we’re so excited about our Live Studio Show,” says Jesper Gawell, chief marketing officer, ChyronHego. “Not only are we showcasing everything producers need for an end-to-end, all-software production, but we’ve put together a truly compelling lineup of editorial content that will be of great value to NAB attendees.”

The ChyronHego Live Studio Show will offer a real-world example of the CAMIO Universe for News Production, the company’s all-software ecosystem that drives template-based, producer-driven workflows using IT-based technologies. ChyronHego’s Live Compositor platform, a scalable and intuitive software solution for multi-camera productions, will serve up real-time graphics and clips from the LyricX 3.2 graphics creation and playout solution and PRIME 3.0 graphics platform. In addition, the production will showcase next-generation virtual sets based on ChyronHego’s augmented reality graphics and robotics systems, driven by the fully integrated Unreal Engine from Epic Games.

“With the CAMIO Universe, we’ve reinvented news production by placing the industry’s most powerful software tools at news producers’ fingertips — giving them everything they need to tell stories in highly compelling ways, as cost-effectively as possible,” Gawell says. “Tools such as Live Compositor make these end-to-end, producer-driven workflows even more versatile, flexible, and cost-effective.”

The three-camera Live Studio Show will be broadcast throughout NAB 2018 at booth SL1208 and feature a carefully curated lineup of interviews, panel discussions, and special presentations by ChyronHego staff, partners, and customers. Scheduled presenters include Major League Baseball Advanced Media, Miami’s WTLV, Nikon, Lawo, and many more — all of whom will describe their experiences and integrations with the ChyronHego solutions. All segments will be streamed to the ChyronHego’s Facebook page, and recorded versions will be made available for later viewing.

“Our message to our customers is that fully virtualized production is not just the wave of the future, it’s a technical reality now,” Gawell says. “But even if you’re not ready to make that move yet, we can support you with a ground-based solution today — and we’ll be on the journey with you once you begin the migration to an all-virtualized infrastructure. And with features like software-based control panels, we democratize production by making it easy for anyone to create compelling live video content.”
