Chyron Unveils Channel Box With VDS Promotor Integration For Auto Promo/Snipe Generation


Chyron Corporation (OTC BB: CYRO) has today announced the integration of its HD/SD-switchable, turnkey branding system, Channel Box with Video Design Software’s (VDS) Promotor Auto-Promo Generation suite of applications. At NAB, visitors to the Chyron booth (SU6120) can see a full demonstration of the VDS Promotor integration with Harris automation driving Channel Box to automatically generate and manage branding and promos.

Channel Box’s real-time video, graphics effects, clips and audio can be integrated with automation systems, or can be used as a standalone branding device. Combined with VDS’ Promoter software suite, Channel Box and Promotor provide an end-to-end solution solving “business rules” management, and connection issues with support for complex animation sequences triggered by automation entries, without tying up automation secondary events, in a well managed package for significant return on investment.

-End-to-end auto promo generation and playout
-Powerful real-time 2D/3D video, DVE, graphics, effects and audio processing
-“Business rules” management, distributed administration
-Automation and traffic interface providing significant return on investment
The Channel Box system also features improved functionality including:
-Database feeds
-Current weather and forecast feeds
-AP® News feeds (subscription based)
-RSS feeds
“The Chyron name is synonymous with delivering strong products to the creative market. The integration of VDS Promoter with Channel Box will significantly streamline the process of generating promos enabling the broadcaster to reduce costs of operation and reallocate personnel and resources from graphics, promotions and engineering departments,” commented Larry Mincer, President of VDS.

Michael Wellesley-Wesley, Chyron CEO commented, “Channel Box broadens Chyron’s market offering by providing an end-to-end, real-time, animation control solution for entertainment facilities in a single box. The web based GUI provides configuration, schedule and most importantly near to air changes from any connected computer. ”
