Chyron LIVE Update Boosts Productivity For Sports Productions In The Cloud

Chyron has announced the first major update to its cloud-native live production platform – Chyron LIVE – which provides broadcaster-grade production switching, motion graphics, replay, telestration, and audio mixing within a web-based interface.

Chyron LIVE 1.2 introduces a comprehensive set of graphics templates that are easily customizable within LIVE’s web interface to create broadcaster-grade sports productions with unique branding. In addition, the 1.2 update of Chyron LIVE streamlines the user experience with straightforward asset import, advanced live production controls, and simplified audio commentary.

It's easier than ever for existing PRIME CG users to upload their own graphics scenes to a Chyron LIVE environment. A new direct upload module in PRIME Designer can send multiple scenes to one or multiple LIVE environments, providing real-time progress notifications within both systems. To get the right replaceable images and video clips for a show, users can drag and drop from their computer's local file explorer onto the LIVE tab in their web browser.

LIVE 1.2 introduces a brand new "Commentary" module that provides an interface for remote commentators to connect their audio to the production and monitor preview/program feeds of the game. Commentary audio is received via SRT streams and exposed as a mixable source in LIVE's audio mixer console. Plus, commentary users benefit from LIVE's audio mix-minus features, so they can listen to program audio without hearing the playback of their own voice.

When it's time to go to air, this update brings new playout control features to handle fast-paced sports productions. A comprehensive list of shortcut keys for switching between cameras, keying in graphics, playing clips, controlling replays, and more greatly accelerates operation in a single-user scenario. All shortcut keys are compatible with handy external control devices such as XKeys, Stream Deck, and more.

Lastly, a new "Instant Replay" functionality has been added to Chyron LIVE's leading replay and telestration toolset, making it possible to automatically put a five-second replay clip on the air from the program feed with a single button push. Users can quickly take it on and off-air with the new replay effect transition as part of the brand-new graphics templates.
