ChyronHego Corporation Introduces the CAMIO Universe

ChyronHego Corporation has introduced the CAMIO Universe, a comprehensive software-based newsroom production ecosystem. CAMIO Universe empowers producers and journalists to create compelling news stories and deliver them rapidly to air. The CAMIO Universe is driven by CAMIO 4.3, a significant new release of ChyronHego's CAMIO graphic management server. With release 4.3, CAMIO not only controls ChyronHego's Lyric graphics creation environment but also offers powerful template-based tools within a significantly expanded production ecosystem, including the company's Hybrid virtual graphics solution, the Metacast weather graphics solution, the PowerClips multiformat production clip server, and GS2 Multi-Touch touchscreen-generation platform, as well as the VidiGo Live Compositor video switching solution. CAMIO's LUCI user interface gives producers, journalists, and video editors instant desktop access to all of these tools. Users can generate news and weather graphics for live playout or editing using nonlinear editors (NLEs), control compelling and visually stunning broadcast touchscreens, set up camera shots and control robotic cameras, and even generate replaceable virtual graphics to accompany the station's virtual studio design. The entire ecosystem is automated by the VidiGo automation and multicamera TV production solution.

Casadonte Productions Selects ChyronHego's Lyric Pro Broadcast Graphics Platform

Casadonte Productions announced that it has selected ChyronHego's Lyric PRO broadcast graphics production and playout platform to enhance its live productions for the NXL National Paintball League. Most recently, Casadonte Productions used Lyric PRO, working in tandem with the company’s Graffiti graphics platform, to deliver a complete package of broadcast graphics for the live webcast of the NXL Paintball World Cup (World Cup), held in October in Kissimmee, Florida. Casadonte Productions has partnered with Go Sports, the production arm of the NXL Paintball League, to provide year-round video coverage of NXL matches. Casadonte Productions first deployed Lyric PRO and Graffiti at the Great Lakes Open, the inaugural event of this year's paintball season, held in Cleveland, Ohio, last June.
