ChyronHego Offers New Tools For Prime Graphics Platform

ChyronHego is now shipping the latest software for its Prime Graphics platform that includes a series of tools to incorporate sophisticated and creative graphics into production workflows. The new enhancements allow Prime Graphics users to deliver rich and engaging visual experiences for viewers of all types of video projects.

Among the new features in version 3.5 is the ability to import Adobe Photoshop projects with editable layers and text, enhanced keyboard support for quick graphics recall during authoring and playout, and advanced keyframe capabilities to ease control. These are all accessible from within the same Prime Designer user interface.

The Prime Graphics platform can be configured as a branding solution, an integrated clip player, a unified newsroom graphics system, a graphics-driven video wall solution, or an integrated touch-screen solution. Workflow options such as Live Mode editing and Base Scene streamline authoring and playout with instant authoring feedback on render outputs and one-stop graphics-package adjustments that can save hours of work.

Version 3.5 of ChyronHego's Prime Graphics platform introduces the following features and capabilities:

  • Adobe Photoshop Layer Import: Designers now can import .PSD files and their associated layers, including editable text, into Prime Graphics. This capability gives users a more direct way to ensure the art director's vision is reflected in on-air graphics.
  • Advanced Keyboard Support: Prime Graphics users can now take advantage of quick recalls for scene authoring, as well as easy manual playout — a particularly valuable capability in live sports and entertainment environments. With deep-end integration of scene parameters, graphics, and other assets triggering, operators can apply changes rapidly at the scene level using flexible keys.
  • Keyframe Ease Editor: Making it easy to adjust the speed between keyframes, the new Keyframe Ease Editor allows designers working with Prime Graphics to create more sophisticated 3D animations and transitions.
  • Multiple-Style Effect: Designers working in Prime Graphics now can apply multiple effects to a single text object for faster and easier graphics creation. This enhancement to the Prime Graphics platform streamlines design workflows by allowing for multiple text styles in the same text box without forcing designers to account for spacing.
