ChyronHego launches CAMIO 4.4 graphic server
ChyronHego has introduced CAMIO 4.4, the newest release of the company’s MOS gateway and graphic asset management server.
As the core of ChyronHego’s software-based CAMIO Universe for News Production, CAMIO 4.4 includes key features designed to make producer-driven news workflows more versatile, flexible, and cost-effective. CAMIO 4.4 enhancements include anew render engine architecture, the ability to publish content straight from the newsroom to social media, and LUCI5, a new HTML5 plugin for the LUCI graphics fulfillment interface.
The CAMIO Universe for News Production is ChyronHego’s all-software, end-to-end ecosystem that empowers producers and journalists to create compelling news stories and deliver them rapidly to air. With tools such as the LyricX graphics creation and playout solution and the PRIME Graphics all-in-one platform, the CAMIO Universe drives template-based, producer-driven news and weather workflows using the most advanced IT-based technologies.
“With the CAMIO Universe, we’re providing an intuitive and high-speed on-air graphics control center that addresses every aspect of news production and gives producers all they need to tell powerful and compelling stories,” said Boromy Ung, chief product officer, ChyronHego. “And now, with CAMIO 4.4, the CAMIO Universe offers even more versatility for everything from setting up and controlling robotic cameras and providing software-based video switching to enhancing a story with sophisticated weather graphics or generating replaceable graphics within a virtual or real studio.”
The CAMIO Render Engine combines ChyronHego’s legacy External Renderer and MediaMaker products into a single solution for rendering and previewing all graphical elements directly from a newsroom computer system (NCRS) or a nonlinear editing (NLE) solution. The CAMIO Render Engine provides an external renderer with which NCRS users can preview graphics created using LyricX and PRIME Graphics templates.
ChyronHego’s easy-to-use interface for integrating Lyric graphics into NLE and other file-based workflows is now available as the Media Renderer software option in the CAMIO Render Engine. Users can access the LUCI templated content creation interface to render animations for both Lyric and PRIME Graphics from within a wide range of third-party NLE applications, including Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, and Grass Valley EDIUS.
