St. John’s Integrates ChyronIP Graphics for Live HD Sports Telecasts
St. John’s University has built the all-new ChyronIP real-time HD/SD 2D and 3D character and graphics generator into its Tricaster-based mobile production unit to bring high-end graphics to its live HD sports telecasts.Leveraging Chyron’s award-winning Lyric PRO software, ChyronIP allows users to create live, full-motion broadcast graphics, 3D animations, and transitions — similar to that of premier sports broadcasts — and stream them directly through TriCaster systems. As a result, St. Johns has taken college sports productions to a whole new level.
“ChyronIP is a breakthrough for the college sports market. Our St. John’s Television Network (STJ-TV) operation produces remote sports productions for third-party outlets like ESPN3, CBS Sports Network and SNY, as well as RedStormSports.com, St. John’s official athletics site. The large volume of live sporting events we produce in part with the NewTek Tricaster are now able to include professional truck-style graphics,” said Mark Fratto, senior associate athletics director for communications at St. John’s University. “ChyronIP provides a cost-effective and efficient means of creating graphics for our telecasts. Equally important is the system’s versatility — essential for handling graphics templates from various third-party outlets for partner telecasts.”
“Like St. John’s, other colleges and universities can benefit from the affordable, flexible and easy-to-use IP-based graphics solution that Chyron IP for Tricaster provides,” said Bill Hendler, chief technology officer at Chyron. “Designed to meet the specific requirements of mobile production, ChyronIP for Tricaster allows users to bring high-quality Chyron graphics into college level sports productions at an unprecedented price point.”
The award-winning ChyronIP provides producers with up to two HD or SD full-motion channels of Chyron graphics that stream directly into the TriCaster system over a network connection without tying up any of the video inputs. In a compact lightweight chassis, ChyronIP is ideal for sports, news, entertainment, and any other live production.
Chyron will demonstrate ChyronIP at the upcoming NAB show at booth SL1010.
