Here’s A New Broadcast Graphics Platform


ChyronHego has released the latest version of its PRIME Graphics platform.

Version 2.6 of PRIME Graphics, a 64-bit, all-software rendering engine, includes such enhancements as 16-bit color and full, 10-bit I/O, a new Scene Camera effect, additional codecs for recording inputs, and advanced touch-screen features.

The new platform is being called by ChyronHego as an “evolution” of its Channel Box PRIME channel branding system.

“The centerpiece of PRIME Graphics 2.6 is the PRIME Designer, a powerful design tool that enables the industry’s fastest and most efficient graphics authoring,” the Melville, N.Y., company boasts.

PRIME Graphics 2.6 offers six key tool kits:
• PRIME Branding, for up-to-the-minute branding elements such as headlines, sports scores, weather reports, financial data, snipes, social media commentary, and automated promos
• PRIME Clips, an integrated broadcast clip player offering user-defined clip transitions and the ability to support up to six independent channels of video from a single server
• PRIME News, a unified newsroom graphics solution that offers full integration with ChyronHego’s CAMIO MOS-based and NCRS-connected graphics asset management solution
• PRIME Studio Monitors, for feeding graphics to non-standard-aspect-ratio monitor walls, touchscreens, integrated anchor desk monitor displays, and more
• PRIME Interactive, a graphics-driven touch-screen solution that lets news and sports reporters tell a better story through visually compelling, interactive presentations
• PRIME Workflow, an integrated extension to ChyronHego’s workflow content distribution and syncing solutions

Sören Kjellin, Chief Technology Officer at ChyronHego, commented. “Whether used together or as stand-alone products, the PRIME Graphics toolkits are flexible and easy-to-use solutions for everyone from news and sports broadcasters to playout facilities and in-venue producers — delivering the creative freedom and reliability our customers have come to expect from the leader in graphics creation and playout software.”
