NewsTicker Closings 2018-02-19T16:49:10+00:00


School closings are very competitive since they are an extension of your station’s weather brand that commands a large audience during the critical early morning news time. There is a drive to be first and most complete.

Even in a world of social media, industry research continues to show that people prefer to get their school closing notifications from watching television.

Any system can take in automated information and display it in a loop. You see that on every station in a market. But, you can’t claim to be the fastest if your system doesn’t get it on air first.

NewsTicker Closings is the fastest way to get an organization from the point of closure to your air, potentially within seconds. Win more viewers with our innovative market-proven display solutions.

ChyronHego’s Display Matrix option, available on LyricX and the HX and MX platforms, expands your station’s branding and storytelling to an all-new level.

With LyricX’s Display Matrix option feeding your on-set visual environment, your motion graphics will fill ever-larger atypical aspect ratio video walls and interactive touch screens, while video displays integrated within your anchor desk create visually focused architectural set pieces.

The Display Matrix option makes this possible with the same LyricX system you already have in place, with the same familiar design and playout workflow you currently use, and with no additional expertise required.
