software, now available across the Chyron product line.

to the Chyron booth (SU6120) at NAB2007 will witness Chyron pushing the
creative boundaries with Lyric PRO 7’s dual renderers. These include a
continuous graphics renderer and a new advanced text renderer that enables the
display of virtually any font set, including Unicode and Complex Scripting. The
continuous renderer also allows the creation of multiple timelines, so that animations
can be taken on and off air at will, while maintaining multi-scene compositing
on output.

Interactive Messages can trigger events within themselves or other messages;
persistent objects can remain on-screen throughout multiple message reads; hierarchical
animations allow creation of complex animations-within-animations; and
real-time particle effects and shaders add a truly unique look.

Key features of Lyric PRO 7 include:

* FBX Importer delivers unprecedented levels of interoperability with
Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya for the Lyric PRO authoring environment, all while
maintaining original polygon meshes, geometry hierarchy, lights, cameras and
animations within the Lyric scene.

* Adobe XMP metadata integration provides sophisticated graphics
management and the ability to automatically extract data to populate text
fields in Lyric pages.

* Adaptable primitive geometry brings enhanced element creation tools into
Lyric for generating bar charts, pie graphs and other data-driven graphics,
essential for live election coverage, statistics display, etc.

* Pie FX applies real-time effects from industry-standard GenArts
Sapphire Plug-ins and others to Lyric PRO graphics.
