Gannett centralizes graphics production with Chyron’s AXIS

Looking to consolidate operations and change the way its 23 stations create, manage, share and broadcast news graphics, Gannett Broadcasting has made a multi-year commitment to Chyron’s AXIS Web-based content creation services.

The server-based AXIS approach allows Gannett to create more graphics at a higher median quality and at a lower cost, according to David Lougee, president of Gannett Broadcasting Group.

While the AXIS platform will facilitate the easy creation of daily breaking news graphics, maps and charts, more complex customized work will be handled by the newly formed Gannett Graphics Group, or G3, which will provide assistance to local TV stations. It will offer a range of design options to enhance the real-time data provided within the AXIS creation process.

By using image databases inside the AXIS system, the time from creation to putting a graphic on-air is drastically reduced and productivity greatly enhanced. AXIS tools can be used by anyone from production assistants to news directors, making graphics output far more efficient and with the added benefit of journalists and news directors retaining direct control of content.
