Chyron partners with Broadcast Interactive Media
Chyron will integrate its WAPSTR Mobile Video Suite with Broadcast Interactive Media’s (BIM) YouNewsTV platform.
Madison, WI-based BIM provides locally focused Web solutions for television and radio broadcasters.
This technology partnership will enable the full range of YouNewsTV’s viewer-generated still and video content to be available to TV stations for instant, seamless on-air use, providing a high level of Web and TV broadcast integration. The integration of WAPSTR and the YouNewsTV platform will enter beta testing at client sites throughout the next few months.
Since its launch in May, YouNewsTV has gone live in more than 40 U.S. TV markets. Many stations air user-generated video daily via YouNewsTV, which requires manually moving material from Web site to playout. The combination of Chyron's WAPSTR and YouNewsTV will integrate YouNewsTV directly with the newsroom.
