Chyron Corporation has announced a technology partnership with OCTOPUS Newsroom System. This alliance expands integration of Chyron's CAMIO complete news graphics management solution with the addition of the OCTOPUS Newsroom System providing journalists with more control over the look and delivery of newsroom graphics.
"Following a successful testing period, we are happy to announce this newsroom integration with Chyron," commented Jan Pulpan, CTO of OCTOPUS Newsroom. "CAMIO is a sophisticated interface and the strong Chyron brand complements the OCTOPUS philosophy of delivering news anytime, anywhere."
The CAMIO graphic management architecture enables a broadcaster's Graphics Department to build and upload assets once, and be immediately available to all output devices as well as newsroom clients. LUCI, CAMIO's Newsroom Client ActiveX, enables journalists to remotely browse templates, edit text and replaceable images and movie files, preview their graphics and insert them into stories directly from within the OCTOPUS newsroom.
CAMIO manages the distribution of assets ensuring that all assets are available for air. Playout is simplified with Chyron's Lyric playlist control, or using iSQ, Chyron's Intelligent Sequencer software. The order of graphics for playout is always synchronised with the OCTOPUS Newsroom Computer System running order as it changes with floats and edits.
"We are delighted to announce this latest extension to the CAMIO system," commented David Ward, VP and general manager, Chyron EAME. "The OCTOPUS Newsroom System is a popular choice across Europe and with this integration, we look forward to bringing the creative flexibility and speed to air that CAMIO provides to the OCTOPUS user base."
