Chyron, Ventuz join forces in Amsterdam
Chyron and graphics-specialist Ventuz, who entered into a strategic partnership in February, will use IBC 2012 in Amsterdam to showcase their first joint development success.
“We are now ready to announce our integration of Ventuz within the CAMIO broadcast environment,” said Erik Beaumont, product manager of Ventuz. “This allows us to seamlessly and transparently operate Ventuz graphics systems within the existing Chyron BlueNet workflow.”
The implementation allows Ventuz to be controlled by the CAMIO and LUCI systems, thus functioning as part of an automated newsroom environment. Asset management, MOS integration, playout control using Chyron’s ISQ, and distribution functionalities are all covered by the Chyron framework, while Ventuz offers flexibility and capability as a real-time graphics system.
“This also gives Ventuz users access to Chyron’s hosted cloud-based graphics using the Axis World Graphics system for news and map images,” said Bill Hendler, CTO of Chyron.
“Through this integration, we are leveraging the best of both companies,” said Beaumont. “Ventuz adds advanced data visualization and interactive touch screen capabilities to the Chyron family of graphics solutions which is utilized by thousands of editors, operators, artists, and producers all over the world.”
