Here’s a quick review of what IBC2017 attendees have the opportunity to see up-close from Sept. 14-18:

News Production Solutions

  • Graphic Asset Management: CAMIO 4.3

At IBC2017, ChyronHego will showcase CAMIO 4.3, the latest update of ChyronHego’s graphic asset management server. With this version, CAMIO brings new editing, file distribution, and virtualization capabilities to 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.

CAMIO 4.3 also includes HubDrive, a Dropbox-like folder synchronization 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 virtualized environments such as ChyronHego’s VPX Virtual Production Server platform, as well as cloud-based services such as Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.

  • Virtual Production Server: VPX

The new VPX Virtual Production Server enables broadcast news operations to run entire content creation and playout workflows in a virtualized, IT-based environment, aiding 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.

  • Graphics Creation and Playout: LyricX 3.2
