THE SYSTEM

Less Cost. More Creativity.

We believe everyone can produce broadcast quality content, but with less cost, in less time, and without the need for large crews. System integration issues should never get in the way of a great production. With Live Compositor, it’s all about rapid set-up times, single operator control and the freedom to try out new production ideas.

Remote Production

Remote Production is a new IP-based service that separates the user interface of Live Compositor, our multi camera production system, from the core engine. Now, a centralized control room connects to the on-site engine that provides the SDI inputs and outputs. This on-site engine, a standard computer workstation, connects to a private or public network.

An important feature of Remote Production is the real-time feedback of sources via the multi-viewers. Without this feedback, remote production would not be possible. How does this service do that? By streaming the multi-viewers from the location where the engine is, back to the control room, with a unique near-zero delay.

Playout Automation

Playout Automation lets you create, load and control a rundown. Users easily combine scenes into running orders and simply drag and drop the elements to compose a story. Playout Automation consists of an Engine, the Live Compositor user interface package and Live Assist. Live Assist integrates with newsroom computer systems, and it’s the perfect solution for any scripted show where last minute changes to the rundown are common.

Hotkey Panel

To automate a task that you perform repeatedly, you can store a series of commands, also known as a macro, using buttons. Live Compositor offers these buttons, but we also offer an app that lets you create a button-based Hotkey panel on any laptop or desktop. This Hotkey Panel gives you super-fast control of various ChyronHego products. It can be used, for example, to switch between cameras, change the live and preview sources, adjust audio settings, show new social media messages, and more.
