ITV News to Refit All 10 U.K. Regional News Sites With ChyronHego's BlueNet(TM) 
Graphics Workflow 
ChyronHego's Workflow Will Leverage Both Cloud and Ground to Enable
Dramatic Improvements in Collaborative and Creative Capabilities,
Efficiency, and Time to Air 
LONDON -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/13 --  ChyronHego (NASDAQ: CHYR)
today announced that ITV plc, the U.K.'s largest commercial
television network, will replace the complete graphics infrastructure
across its 10 ITV News regions with ChyronHego's BlueNet(TM). The
BlueNet end-to-end graphics workflow solution, an innovative mix of
cloud services with ground applications and hardware, will enable ITV
News to establish a highly efficient model of collaborative graphics
creation that in turn supports each U.K. ITV News site in taking more
high-quality graphics to air in the shortest cycle time.  
"The ChyronHego solution for ITV's regional news graphics production
has enabled us to transform the way we produce quality on-screen
graphics live-to-air," said Paul Stevenson, director of technology
and technical operations at ITV News. "We have centralised our
creative graphics hub, allowing our small team of skilled designers
to collaborate and serve our dispersed regional news studio
operations. Journalists in the regions will have a powerful set of
templates giving them the capability to produce their own
high-quality graphics with a fast turnaround to serve their local
news programmes." 
BlueNet leverages ChyronHego's award-winning suite of graphics tools
to streamline ordering and graphics asset management, graphics
creation, and real-time playout in a complete graphics workflow, from
creation through to production. ITV selected BlueNet following an
extensive evaluation process, and the resulting installation will
include ChyronHego's CAMIO Cluster, located at the ITV News
Birmingham hub, for asset management, content replication, and
business continuity. Each regional site will be equipped with a CAMIO
server that will manage local assets; a pair of LEX3-1 graphics
playout devices; MicroX graphics playout systems; and ChyronHego's
MediaMaker, seamlessly creating graphics for editing applications
such as Avid Media Composer, NewsCutter, and others. The ChyronHego
Desktop Multi-viewer will enable remote monitoring, maintenance, and
control of any devices. 
ITV News will employ ChyronHego's full line of Axis World Graphics
cloud-based solutions. Major modules from the platform will include
Axis maps and news for content creation; Axis order for workflow
management, job tasking, monitoring, and control; and Axis
Statistical Reporting for productivity management.  
"ChyronHego is all about workflow, ease of use, and how fast graphics
can be designed, updated and pushed to air," said Michael
Wellesley-Wesley, CEO at ChyronHego. "As ITV News discovered in
testing BlueNet, the benefits of implementing our hybrid graphics
workflow within the multisite news production model are stunning.
Cloud-based centralisation of graphics creation yields better access
to shared assets, enhances collaboration among staff, improves
interoperability with third-party systems, and enables a dramatic
reduction in production time. We have been fine-tuning the news
workflow for many years now, and with its launch of BlueNet, ITV News
will experience first-hand the enormous power of ChyronHego
At the time of this release, ITV Granada and ITV Central are both
fully commissioned and operational. The remaining regional rollout
will continue until summer 2013.
