Chyron Launches New Server

Chyron Corp. recently introduced its new Aprisa Video Clip Server, a flexible general-purpose video server that can handle ingest, edit and playout of broadcast-quality video and audio from any place on a broadcast network.

The Aprisa VCS' component architecture is designed for modern LAN, SAN, and WAN environments. Operators can remotely control and reconfigure a VCS on the fly. Each system can be configured for eight discrete video channels, four channels with key or four channels with in-channel transitions. User network-client interfaces are designed for multichannel playout and offline editing and browsing. The VCS also supports a mixed database of DVCPRO/DVCAM and multi-bitrate MPEG-2 clips. It can be integrated into broadcast facilities' production, master control and transmission using automation interfaces.

The Aprisa Video Clip Server also features:

* Embedded digital audio option in and out;
* Pro-Bel, Louth VDCP, Odetics and Sony BVW automation protocols;
* Dissolves, fades and wipe transitions between clips;
* Remote media web browsing, proxy editing and asset management.
