LyricX ­

LyricX adds powerful usability enhancements, a variety of new design features, and even greater performance than prior versions of the company’s world-leading graphics platform. LyricX allows users to move effortlessly between SDI and IP, and between 4K and HD video, all within the same graphics platform.

Live Compositor with Live Assist Panels
Live Compositor is a powerful and intuitive software solution for live multicamera production, allowing both new and experienced broadcasters to create compelling live video content without the need for technically trained personnel. The solution includes video switching and audio mixing, a powerful video effects engine, multichannel graphics, multiple clip players, and robotic camera control, all packaged in an easy-to-use, all-in-one solution. ChyronHego will demonstrate Live Compositor with the Live Assist Panels platform, an all-new user interface and control panel creation tool. The Live Assist Panels platform leverages the latest multiuser web technologies to enable creation of custom-designed user interfaces for control of any ChyronHego product, and it also supports a growing range of protocols used by ChyronHego and by other leading industry vendors.

Virtual Placement
ChyronHego will feature Virtual Placement, a powerful tool for turning the complex art of placing virtual graphics within live video into a quick and simple process. With no need to add any specialized camera encoders or lengthy calibration processes, users can place virtual graphics into a scene within minutes of setup, ready for use in a multitude of applications. Virtual Placement can be used in almost any live broadcast scenario, from augmenting physical studio sets with virtual objects or live broadcast graphics and video feeds, to much larger scenes such as sports arenas, racetracks, or landscapes. With version 7.0 of Virtual Placement, ChyronHego has added optical scene tracking — giving the system the ability to gather metrics without using pitch lines or sensors. In this manner, Virtual Placement makes virtual elements look physically real and in harmony with the live scene they are placed into, and brings the potential benefit of additional revenues from advertising placement.

ChyronHego will showcase its industry-leading Paint analysis and telestration tool. Designed to meet the specific requirements of sports broadcasters, Paint enables “Illustrated Replay” — a powerful combination of replay, graphics, and analysis that brings game play to life. With Paint, sports broadcasters have the ability to telestrate on clips created from live footage or files stored elsewhere. These can be used for near-live replays or post-match analysis.

Virtual Sets
ChyronHego’s Plutonium virtual set tracking solution provides real-time, precise camera motion within 2D or 3D computer-generated backgrounds. From hand-held camera movements to pan-tilt-zoom-focus, Plutonium employs an open and scalable solution for tracking virtual reality, whether using precise motion-tracking robotic camera support with no video/audio delays, or interfacing with third-party tracking systems. ChyronHego will also spotlight its Neon trackless virtual set solution, a compact, cost-effective, turnkey single-box offering. Neon and Plutonium are an important component in ChyronHego’s 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.

ChyronHego will feature the newest version of Metacast, the company’s professional weather data analysis and live-to-air weather graphics presentation solution. One of the highlights of Metacast at the show will be its seamless integration into the CAMIO Universe, allowing anyone in the newsroom to utilize meteorologists’ expertise in creating everything from weather-based news illustrations to a full weather graphics rundown
