Chyron And Signum Bildtechnik Announce Technology Integration For Newsroom Archive


Reading, UK - July 30, 2008: Chyron (AMEX:CGS) has today announced a third-party integration project with Signum Bildtechnik GmbH, a leading manufacturer of still store, clip, video and archiving solutions for broadcasters. Based in Munich, Germany, Signum is integrating its product portfolio with Chyron’s CAMIO Newsroom Asset Management solution, to streamline the delivery of newsroom graphics.

The Chyron and Signum integration gives journalists who use Chyron’s CAMIO interface as part of a newsroom client (for example, iNews, Dalet or ENPS) access to an archive of graphics material for inclusion in the programme’s rundown. Items selected from the archive are automatically transferred into the CAMIO system and moved to the designated playout device, without further manual intervention. In addition, operators can use tools within the Signum system to modify the graphic image before inserting it into the story.

This integration extends the already powerful features of CAMIO and provides a useful archive capability for customers.

“Signum and Chyron have a strong synergy that has allowed us to develop a sophisticated archive for the newsroom environment,” commented Martin Hainfellner, President of Signum Bildtechnik. “We are delighted that we can offer a comprehensive workflow that expands the skill set of journalists whilst maximising creativity.”

David Ward, VP and General Manager, Chyron EAME added, “We are pleased to announce this partnership with Signum. CAMIO has become synonymous with sophisticated newsroom technology and this announcement further highlights Chyron’s commitment to streamlining the broadcast graphics chain.”
