Las Vegas station employs Chyron AXIS SaaS

Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS-TV has adopted Chyron’s AXIS online content creation system.

KLAS needed to find a way to sustain newscast quality while reassigning the resources typically required solely for creating news graphics. AXIS is a Software as a Service (SaaS) package that operates over the Internet to provide high-quality graphics for broadcast and Web-based video outlets. Requiring no hardware or software, AXIS enables anyone with an Internet connection to fulfill instantly the need for broadcast-quality news graphics, still or animated maps, bar and pie charts, financial stock quotes, and weather graphics.

According to KLAS creative director Lee Minard, the primary use of AXIS is for news, but it also supports some of the station’s weather requirements.
