ChyronHego Launch PRIME Graphics 2.6

News Image
ChyronHego has released the latest version of its broadcast graphics platform, PRIME Graphics.

PRIME Graphics 2.6 is a 64-bit, all-software rendering engine that powers the PRIME graphics platform. The new version includes enhancements ranging from 16-bit color and full, 10-bit I/O to a new Scene Camera effect, additional codecs for recording inputs, and advanced touch-screen features.

The evolution of ChyronHego's Channel Box PRIME channel branding system, PRIME Graphics 2.6 is an advanced, 4K-ready, 3D graphics authoring and playout solution designed to meet the ongoing demands of broadcasters. The centrepiece of the solution is the PRIME Designer, a design tool that enables efficient graphics authoring.

In addition, PRIME Graphics 2.6 offers six key toolkits:

• PRIME Branding: For delivering up-to-the-minute branding elements such as headlines, sports scores, weather reports, financial data, snipes, social media commentary, and automated promos
• PRIME Clips: An integrated broadcast clip player offering user-defined clip transitions and the ability to support up to six independent channels of video from a single server
• PRIME News:: A unified newsroom graphics solution that offers full integration with ChyronHego's CAMIO MOS-based and NCRS-connected graphics asset management solution
• PRIME Studio Monitors: For feeding graphics to non-standard-aspect-ratio monitor walls, touchscreens, integrated anchor desk monitor displays, and more
• PRIME Interactive: A graphics-driven touch-screen solution that lets news and sports reporters tell a better story through compelling, interactive presentations
• PRIME Workflow: An integrated extension to ChyronHego's workflow content distribution and syncing solutions.

PRIME Designer is a creative tool that offers drag-and-drop design for quick and easy scene construction. The Advanced Data Object provides filtered data binding for scene elements, and integration with ChyronHego's NewsTicker enables access to back-end data streams. With PRIME Graphics 2.6, PRIME Designer includes support for 16-bit color on every channel and full, 10-bit I/O. A new Scene Camera effect enables users to add multiple cameras to a scene, and the latest version includes additional codecs for recording inputs. In addition, an all-new Inline Text effect enables users to add scene objects to text objects such as crawls.

Elsewhere, PRIME Graphics 2.6 adds advanced touch-screen features to PRIME Interactive, including an all-new tube object and embedded Lua and shader editors. PRIME Studio Monitors now includes subchannels for studio monitor solutions and stadium LED screens.

Sören Kjellin, Chief Technology Officer, ChyronHego, said: "Media professionals from around the world are embracing PRIME Graphics' single-platform, multiple-solutions model, a total offering with far more capabilities and a lower total cost of ownership than competing solutions. Whether used together or as stand-alone products, the PRIME Graphics toolkits are flexible and easy-to-use solutions for everyone from news and sports broadcasters to playout facilities and in-venue producers — delivering the creative freedom and reliability our customers have come to expect from the leader in graphics creation and playout software."
