Chyron, Proximity Partner on Graphics Management

Chyron has announced that it will integrate Proximity's Xenostore software with Chyron's Duet CD systems that use Lyric content creation and playout software. The product, which will be called Lyricstore by Proximity, will be available directly from Chyron and Chyron resellers worldwide.

The combined product will allow users of Lyric software to search, transfer, convert and manage graphical assets, as well as integrate Lyric software into graphics operations with legacy equipment from Adobe, Avid, Chyron, Discreet, Grass Valley, Leitch, Omneon, Pinnacle, Quantel, Sundance and others.

In addition, Proximity's newsroom plug-ins and order management system will be integrated with Lyric's MOS implementation to allow Lyric users to "drag and drop" Proximity graphical assets into Lyric templates in the newsroom, as well as linking graphic orders in the other management system with Lyric playout devices.

Lyricstore by Proximity will be available at NAB and will be demonstrated in both the Proximity booth (SU9600) and Chyron booth (C4742).
