MELVILLE, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 03/27/14 -- Visit ChyronHego at NAB
Show 2014, Booth SL1110 -- ChyronHego (NASDAQ: CHYR) today announced
the launch of the Virtual 1st, an easy-to-operate 1st & 10 football
system for adding state-of-the-art virtual graphics to live football
broadcasts. The system employs video overlay and sensorless camera
technology to help broadcasters quickly analyze gameplay and provide
greater insight to fans. Requiring just a single rack-mounted server,
Virtual 1st is ideal for use in stadiums and mobile production units.
Virtual 1st enables a single operator to insert 1st down lines, lines
of scrimmage in the color of choice, and animated down and distance
arrows that can be customized to the unique style of the broadcaster.
The system features a user-friendly interface with a powerful chroma
key and functions using up to three camera feeds without the need for
camera sensors -- cutting costs and installation time.
"Virtual graphics are an integral part of sports broadcasts," said
Mark Bowden, product manager at ChyronHego. "Virtual 1st offers
simplicity on every level. The system requires minimal operator
training and broadcasters can go from setup to air in as quickly as
one hour. The end result is a graphically rich broadcast that can
boost ratings through the delivery of an engaging and easy-to-follow
story for viewers."
