Chyron Announces Extension To BTI Technology Partner Ship For Channel Box


Chyron Corporation (OTC BB: CYRO) has today announced an addition to its technology partnership with Business Technology, Inc. (BTi), a leading provider of automated broadcast graphics applications.

The relationship, which already sees BTi bundle its DataBridge service with Chyron’s DynaCrawl dual-ticker, time, temp, weather and logo graphics display system, will now extend to Chyron’s Channel Box HD/SD-switchable branding and automated promo system. DataBridge for DynaCrawl and Channel Box provides broadcasters with an easy-to-use, web-based, point-and-click service that delivers a reliable stream of operator-selected real-time news and information formatted specifically for SD, HD and HD/SD-switchable system configurations.

DataBridge for the DynaCrawl and Channel Box systems uses the DataBridge service from BTi to give broadcasters access to a deep menu of information feeds from top data providers, including international, national and local news, sports, weather, entertainment news and more. A simple, secure web user interface, accessible from anywhere, makes adding or changing a data stream as easy as selecting it from the menu. Changes occur instantly, giving broadcasters the flexibility to meet any information delivery requirement. A flat annual subscription fee provides complete, continuous access to the entire menu of information sources. Playout licenses are offered on a per-device basis.

DataBridge from BTi is a fully managed data service that insulates broadcasters from typical data provider pitfalls, such as changing news wire data codes, by continuously updating itself in the background. BTi continuously monitors the entire service from its own data center to the broadcaster’s local server, ensuring maximum “up-time.” Built-in monitoring and robust redundancy strategy ensures seamless, uninterrupted data flow.

Jay Wasack, president of BTi said, “DataBridge from BTi is a great complement to Chyron’s powerful Channel Box branding system, providing an effortless workflow for automatically delivering information-rich tickers, crawls and promos to air. DataBridge is the perfect information pump for graphics operations, ensuring a constant stream of reliable, formatted, ready-for-air content. DataBridge for Channel Box is yet another example of how a customer can leverage their investment in the graphics system choice, turning two excellent products into one great solution.”

Michael Wellesley-Wesley, Chyron CEO added, “We are delighted to announce that this highly successful partnership has been extended to encapsulate Channel Box. The success of the DynaCrawl integration with BTi has led to this further development, which will provide aggregate data feeds for a number of broadcasts such as financial news, entertainment, horoscopes, sports, weather and stocks to name a few. This partnership further highlights Chyron’s commitment to developing markets.”
