Chyron Announces Technology Partnership With Octopus Newsroom System


Chyron Corporation (OTC BB: CYRO) today announced a technology partnership with OCTOPUS Newsroom System. This alliance further expands integration of Chyron’s CAMIO complete news graphics management solution with the addition of the OCTOPUS Newsroom System providing journalists unprecedented control over the look and delivery of newsroom graphics.

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 Active X®, 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 synchronized with the OCTOPUS Newsroom Computer System running order as it changes with floats and edits.

“Following a successful testing period we are very happy to announce this newsroom integration with Chyron. CAMIO is a sophisticated interface and the strong Chyron brand compliments the OCTOPUS philosophy of delivering news anytime, anywhere,” commented Jan Pulpan, CTO of OCTOPUS Newsroom.

“We are delighted to announce this latest extension to the CAMIO system. 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,” commented David Ward, VP and General Manager, Chyron EAME.
