Virtual Production Server


ChyronHego’s VPX platform, an Advanced Proof-of-Concept nominated as a 2017 IABM Game-Changer Award Finalist, represents the next phase in IT-based broadcast operations by enabling broadcast news operations to run critical content creation and playout software in a virtualized, IT-based environment. 

The VPX platform enables broadcasters to create highly efficient, cost-effective, and easy-to-manage production workflows for news, sports, and other programs, all from virtual instances of LyricX, CAMIO, PRIME, Live Compositor, Paint, Virtual Placement, and other ChyronHego solutions running on a single server.

VPX supports standard IP protocols such as NDI, which enables live-production video workflows over standard Ethernet networks. These protocols enable all ChyronHego solutions to communicate, share, deliver, and receive broadcast-quality video between the applications running on the VPX Platform.

VPX is a game-changer because it means that running live production workflows in a virtualized server environment is no longer a vision for the future. ChyronHego is working to make VPX available to broadcasters here and now.

Key Features
  • Scalability On Demand

    Spin up a complete production workflow running at a moment’s notice to support a new channel or program, and then scale down just as quickly. There’s no need to invest in additional hardware to cover peak hours that will simply sit idle during slower times.

  • Reduce Your Total Cost of Ownership

    Since there’s no longer any need for a separate hardware system to support each function, hardware dependencies are drastically reduced or even completely removed — yielding significant cost savings. 

  • Redundancy

    Depending on your needs, your broadcast operation can run all of its applications on a single VPX server or, for maximum redundancy, spin up another server running the same applications. If the first server fails, the second takes over without interrupting service —offering critical redundancy in your mission-critical live broadcast environment.

  • Pick the Right Apps for the Job

    Select from the ChyronHego product portfolio to create a mix of VPX applications that match the specific requirements of your production workflow. Or, pick from two packaged VPX solutions: VPX News, which virtualizes the news production solutions from the CAMIO Universe, or VPX Sports, virtualizing ChyronHego’s award-winning sports-specific solutions such as the Paint telestration tool or Virtual Placement virtual graphics system. 

  • Decrease Your Footprint & Increase Your ROI

    By running broadcast-specific applications in a virtual server stack, VPX delivers to media operations all of the virtualization, space-saving, and energy conservation benefits that corporate and enterprise IT departments have been enjoying for years.
