Company’s Industry-Leading Channel Branding System Completely Re-engineered as 64-Bit Solution, With All-New Tools for Unlimited Creativity

ChyronHego today introduced Channel Box Prime, a significant new release of the company’s popular Channel Box channel branding system that has been re-engineered for the 64-bit environment.

Featuring an all-new dedicated rendering engine and scene designer, Channel Box Prime is completely geared to broadcasters’ specific requirements for channel branding and playout.

Broadcasters all around the world have embraced Channel Box’s unequalled power, interoperability, and stunning return on investment. It’s the industry’s fastest and easiest solution for delivering bold branding elements such as up-to-the-minute headlines, sports scores, financial data, weather reports, snipes, social media commentary, and automated promos,” said Johan Apel, president and CEO, ChyronHego. With Channel Box Prime, we’ve taken everything that’s great about Channel Box and retooled it from the ground up. The result is a high-performance foundation for future-proof channel branding and playout that drives unlimited creativity.

Channel Box Prime is a native 64-bit Unicode application that is localized in 13 languages. With an all-new rendering engine based on ChyronHego’s exclusive GS2 technology, Channel Box Prime includes powerful enhancements for creative freedom and performance. One example is Warp Effects, a never-before-seen special effect that integrates with industry-leading third-party modeling and rendering tools such as Adobe After Effects and 3ds Max from Autodesk. With Warp Effects, users are able to create effects in After Effects or 3ds Max and then bring them into Channel Box Prime, where they can map live, replaceable data onto the graphics. For seamless data streaming, Channel Box Prime offers a full complement of automation interfaces including PBUS, VDPC, Intelligent Interface, and UDP clients.

Channel Box Prime will be demonstrated at IBC2015 and will ship in the first quarter of 2016. More information about Channel Box Prime and the full ChyronHego product family is available at www.chyronhego.com.
