Chyron Products at the 2013 NAB Show:
ChyronIP Graphics Streaming Over IP
Making its NAB debut in 2013 is the all-new ChyronIP, a real-time HD/SD 2D and 3D character and graphics generator specifically designed for the NewTek(R) TriCaster(TM) -- an all-in-one, integrated live production system that offers the power of a live network studio. ChyronIP is a compact, lightweight system that provides producers with up to two HD or SD full-motion channels of Chyron graphics that stream directly into the TriCaster over a network connection.
Ideal for sports, news, entertainment, and any other live production, ChyronIP allows TriCaster users to employ the same high-impact graphics typically seen in premier sports and entertainment broadcasts. Because graphics data is delivered via a network connection, broadcasters can take advantage of ChyronIP for TriCaster without tying up any of the needed camera inputs that are critical to live production. ChyronIP allows users to leverage Chyron's award-winning Lyric(R) PRO graphics application to create live, full-motion Chyron broadcast graphics, 3D animations, and transitions.
