ChyronHego’s LyricX Next-Generation Graphics Solution Wins NewBay Media’s ‘Best of Show’ Award


ChyronHego today announced that LyricX, an all-new release of the company’s flagship Lyric graphics creation and playout solution, received a NewBay Media Best of Show Award at the 2016 NAB Show. Based on ChyronHego’s industry-leading Lyric PRO platform, LyricX harnesses the power of 64-bit architecture to offer unprecedented performance in graphics creation and playout.

Presented by TV Technology magazine, the Best of Show Award is one of the industry’s most prestigious technology honors. Award entries are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency, and performance in serving the broadcast industry. Winners received an award for display and will be featured in an upcoming issue of TV Technology.

“Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications,” said Eric Trabb, vice president and group publisher, NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group.

LyricX is a fundamental element in the CAMIO Universe, a comprehensive software-based newsroom production ecosystem that empowers producers and journalists to create compelling news stories and deliver them rapidly to air. The CAMIO Universe is driven by CAMIO 4.2, a significant milestone for ChyronHego’s award-winning CAMIO graphic asset management server, slated for release in Q3 of 2016. With version 4.2, CAMIO continues its industry-leading and widely used integration with Lyric, and newsrooms will be able to leverage the speed improvements of LyricX to bring more news to their audiences faster.

“The NewBay Best of Show Award is a tremendous honor, and solid validation of LyricX and our CAMIO Universe strategy. LyricX offers a robust new framework with which to develop next-generation capabilities to meet our customers’ increasing performance demands,” said Johan Apel, president and CEO, ChyronHego. “With the ability to drive the memory-intensive capabilities that are beginning to shape the broadcast operations of the future, such as high dynamic range and 4K resolution, LyricX gives our users more power and versatility than ever before.”
