ChyronHego Corporation Key Developments

ChyronHego Corporation Introduces Studio MediaMaker

ChyronHego Corporation has introduced Studio MediaMaker, a new solution for streamlining broadcast production. Designed especially for smaller or non-traditional organizations, Studio MediaMaker automates the end-to-end processes of broadcasting from planning to production to file-based publishing of news content, and then through seamless links to ChyronHego graphics workflow solutions and other production resources. Studio MediaMaker works as a stand-alone system and also provides tight integration to any MOS-compatible newsroom computer system if required, with templated file-based delivery of content to internal MAMs, transmission servers, and websites. For streamlined graphics production, users of ChyronHego's CAMIO suite of newsroom graphics tools can easily leverage existing graphics assets within Studio MediaMaker. For instance, networks producing local editions of news and weather can keep their links to the CAMIO assets and creation tools they use for the main shows and leverage them in Studio MediaMaker without rework.

ChyronHego Corporation Launches New Broadcast Graphics Solution

ChyronHego Corporation announced the launch of VistaCam, a new broadcast graphics solution for panoramic in-studio video displays. The broadcaster sought to provide a three-projector, panoramic backdrop behind the presenters' desks featuring graphics and live video from football venues. However, signals obtained from wide-angle HD cameras located at the football pitch were appearing pixelated and out-of-focus when projected on the large video wall in the studio. Aware of ChyronHego's innovations in panoramic video and image-based tracking systems, including its patented CogEye technology for stitching HD sources together, the broadcaster approached ChyronHego to provide a solution. ChyronHego based the VistaCam solution on the Super-HD camera units used in the company's acclaimed TRACAB optical player tracking systems. With TRACAB's patented image processing technology, the compact HD cameras use stereo technology to ensure that the entire playing surface is constantly filmed from several angles. Using this technology, ChyronHego custom-designed and built a small, portable camera unit for VistaCam including four of the HD cameras. With the camera unit installed in the arena and transmitting the four HD video streams over a Gigabit Ethernet connection, the VistaCam presentation engine is able to stitch together the feeds to create a very high-resolution, near-180-degree video panorama. The VistaCam software includes an intuitive GUI for real-time color correction in the studio, and can be easily integrated with ChyronHego's resolution-independent Lyric64 graphics creation and playout platform. This enables the system to deliver high-resolution video in virtually any size and dimension, an important capability for video walls that are often deployed in unusual widths and heights.

ChyronHego Announces Appointment of Carl Blandino as New Chief Financial Officer

ChyronHego announced the appointment of Carl Blandino as the company's new chief financial officer (CFO). Reporting directly to ChyronHego President and CEO Johan Apel, Blandino oversees the company's finance and business operations as ChyronHego continues to grow and dominate the global broadcast graphics market. Just prior to joining ChyronHego, Blandino served as CFO of Diligent Board Member Services. He also served previously as senior vice president and CFO at CashEdge Inc.
