Chyron Introduces Cloud-Based Live Production Platform LIVE 1.2 Update
MELVILLE, NY—Chyron has unveiled a major update to its cloud-native live production platform Chyron LIVE that provides broadcast-quality production switching, motion graphics, replay, telestration and audio mixing from a web interface.
Chyron LIVE 1.2 introduces a set of easily customizable graphic templates into the LIVE web interface to create broadcast-quality sports productions with unique branding. The update also streamlines the user experience with simple asset import, advanced live production controls and simplified audio commentary, the company said.
“With Chyron LIVE, we are integrating the CG motion graphics of a leading sports network into an on-demand cloud environment accessible to virtually any organization producing live sports,” said Mathieu Yerle, senior vice president of Chyron strategy.
“This is an opportunity for content creators in this space to exponentially increase their production values, but we also realize that CG design will likely be a completely new skill set for smaller scale operators. this new graphics package, which covers dashboards, clocks, lower thirds, over shoulders, replay transitions and more, it is extremely easy for a user to start a production environment, customize their package with the colors, data and images of their choice and deliver a professional look to their audience in minutes.”
Beyond the new templates, the latest release makes it easier for existing PRIME CG users to upload their own graphic scenes into a Chyron LIVE environment, Chyron said.
A new direct upload module in PRIME Designer can send multiple scenes to one or more Chyron LIVE environments, providing real-time progress notifications in both systems. To get the right replaceable images and video clips for a show in Chyron LIVE, users can drag and drop from their computer’s local file explorer to their web browser’s LIVE tab, he said.
LIVE 1.2 also introduces an all-new Commentary module that provides an interface for remote commentators to connect their audio to the production and monitor the game’s preview/program streams. Audio commentaries are received via SRT streams and exposed as mixable source in LIVE’s audio mixer. Commentary users benefit from LIVE’s audio mixing features, so they can listen to program audio without hearing their own voice playback, he said.
Chyron LIVE 1.2 update delivers new broadcast control features to handle fast-paced sports productions. A comprehensive list of hotkeys for switching between cameras, capturing graphics, playing clips and controlling replays greatly speed up operation in a single-user scenario. All hotkeys in Chyron LIVE are compatible with convenient external control devices, such as XKeys and Stream Deck, he said.
A new Instant Replay feature is now available from Chyron LIVE’s Replay and Telestration toolset, which enables a five-second replay clip to be played automatically from the stream programs at the touch of a button. A new Chyron LIVE replay effect transition is available as part of the new graphics templates, the company said.
