ChyronHego Unveils V 2.0 of LyricX Graphics Creation And Playout Solution

The latest version adds powerful usability enhancements and even greater performance to LyricX, which broke ground earlier this year as an all-new, 64-bit release of ChyronHego’s flagship Lyric PRO platform.

In addition to ChyronHego's LyricX 2.0’s all-new user interface and many usability enhancements, graphics designers and authors will notice a considerable performance boost for the system’s most popular and widely used features. LyricX 2.0 now enables users to execute macros and perform other tasks, such as load-and-play and clip handling, up to five times faster than the first-generation LyricX. For instance, the redesigned Timeline feature, now reduces preparation time drastically for creating all types of animated graphics.

While HD resolution using SDI is still the predominant broadcast format, many broadcasters are beginning to produce live, high-end programs in 4K, and distribute using IP. Through its seamless support of major broadcast IP transport protocols such as SMPTE2022-6 and ASPEN, LyricX 2.0 allows users to move effortlessly between SDI and IP, and 4K and HD video all within the same graphics platform. In addition, LyricX 2.0 is the first graphics solution to provide native support for the emerging NewTek NDI IP protocol.

LyricX 2.0 is a fundamental element in the ChyronHego CAMIO Universe, a comprehensive software-based ecosystem. This solution is driven by CAMIO 4.2, a graphic asset management server that features even greater integration with LyricX 2.0. The result is a family of products that emulates the powerful template-based tools and playout control of LyricX. 

ChyronHego is exhibiting at IBC2016 in stand 7.D11.
