Chyron announces HD/SD switchable graphics video server

Chyron introduced its MicroClyps graphics video server. It can be configured as either HD or SD, each with perfectly synchronized audio, video and key outputs and a built-in keyer for compositing clips on program video. Advanced wavelet compression technology and selectable compression ratios provide a balance between high-capacity storage and high-quality playout of channel branding, promos, snypes and bumpers. Video and audio can be automatically ingested using the Folder Watch capability, which supports a variety of sources — including QuickTime files with alpha and audio, still images and graphic file sequences.

In addition, stills and image sequences can be manually ingested, or live video can be recorded directly on the channel. A Video for Windows codec is available, and more than five hours of HD and 15 hours of SD online compressed video/key content can be stored on the system.

All clips and audio used on the MicroClyps systems are fully interoperable with the XClyps compressed HD/SD clip server. Using the remote monitor and control and asset management features, broadcasters can remotely control and transfer assets between MicroClyps and XClyps systems.
