Release features Clips PRIME, a broadcast clip player with seamless links to dynamic graphics
ChyronHego has launched PRIME 2.0, a high-performance update of the company’s renowned Channel Box PRIME channel branding system. PRIME 2.0 is the 64-bit, all-software rendering engine that powers the PRIME Ecosystem, a universal graphics platform.
“Today’s broadcasters are grappling with an industry in transformation. They are having to evolve their facilities to support mixed resolutions, including HD and UHD, with SDI and IP operating side by side. They are also preparing to transition from bespoke video solutions to standardised and virtualised IT infrastructure. These factors demand the most efficient workflows possible with unprecedented ease of use and maximum flexibility in installation environments,” said Sören Kjellin, chief technology officer, ChyronHego.
PRIME 2.0 is a software-based solution that leverages GPU and CPU technologies for maximum power in rendering graphics and effects. With the ability to output graphics and clips through a single system that formerly required multiple solutions, users gain more functionality. PRIME 2.0 includes PRIME Designer, which offers quick and versatile drag-and-drop workflows for scene construction and data binding. PRIME 2.0 also includes powerful and easy-to-use capabilities for building customised transitions, including ChyronHego’s unique Warp Effects technology as well as auto-follow, mask, render to texture, and more. And, PRIME provides seamless integration with ChyronHego’s NewsTicker.
ChyronHego delivers the PRIME Ecosystem through a series of packages that can operate simultaneously together from a single PRIME 2.0 server or as stand-alone solutions. The Branding Package delivers all the experiences from the Channel Box line of products while meeting the specific needs of broadcast business branding, bringing extraordinary flexibility as well as delivering new efficiencies to operations, engineering, and management.
PRIME 2.0 introduces Clips PRIME, a highly flexible broadcast clip player with the ability to support up to six independent channels of video from a single server. Clips PRIME features a broad range of dynamic and pre-canned transitions including the Warp Effects technology, a unique special effects capability that integrates with industry-leading third-party modeling and rendering tools such as Adobe After Effects and 3ds Max from Autodesk.
