ChyronHego Presents Virtualised NAB Production

11/04/2018

USA: At NAB, ChyronHego presented the first-ever fully software-based studio production to be broadcast live from a trade show floor.

Showcasing the company's range of live production software products, the ChyronHego Live Studio Show ran in a completely virtualised environment and will be broadcast in two parallel production workflows: as a traditional ground-based SDI production and running in a private datacentre powered by Cisco.

"Nothing speaks 'proof of concept' louder than a real-world, working production, and that's why we're so excited about our Live Studio Show," said Jesper Gawell, Chief Marketing Officer, ChyronHego. "Not only are we showcasing everything producers need for an end-to-end, all-software production, but we've put together a truly compelling lineup of editorial content that will be of great value to NAB attendees."

The ChyronHego Live Studio Show offers a dynamic, real-world example of the CAMIO Universe for News Production - the company's all-software ecosystem that drives template-based, producer-driven workflows using IT-based technologies. ChyronHego's Live Compositor platform, a scalable and intuitive software solution for multicamera productions, will serve up real-time graphics and clips from the LyricX 3.2 graphics creation and playout solution and PRIME 3.0 graphics platform. In addition, the production will showcased next-generation virtual sets based on ChyronHego's augmented reality graphics and robotics systems, driven by the fully integrated Unreal Engine from Epic Games.

"With the CAMIO Universe, we've reinvented news production by placing the industry's most powerful software tools at news producers' fingertips - giving them everything they need to tell stories in highly compelling ways, as cost-effectively as possible," Gawell commented. "Tools such as Live Compositor make these end-to-end, producer-driven workflows even more versatile, flexible, and cost-effective."

The three-camera Live Studio Show will be broadcast throughout the 2018 NAB Show and features a carefully curated lineup of interviews, panel discussions, and special presentations by ChyronHego staff, partners, and customers. Scheduled presenters include Major League Baseball Advanced Media, Miami's WTLV, Nikon, Lawo, and many more - all of whom will describe their experiences and integrations with the ChyronHego solutions. All segments will be streamed to the ChyronHego's Facebook page, and recorded versions will be made available for later viewing.

Gawell added: "Our message to our customers is that fully virtualized production is not just the wave of the future, it's a technical reality now. But even if you're not ready to make that move yet, we can support you with a ground-based solution today - and we'll be on the journey with you once you begin the migration to an all-virtualised infrastructure. And with features like software-based control panels, we democratise production by making it easy for anyone to create compelling live video content."

Viewers will be able to watch the entire show via Facebook Live at www.facebook.com/ChyronHego and see it in person at the 2018 NAB Show.
