Germany’s MDR Adds to Chyron Portfolio
MDR, based in Leipzig, Germany has expanded its Chyron portfolio. The German broadcaster, a long-standing Chyron client, has recently added three HyperX³ graphics systems and iRB to its current infrastructure, 15 HyperX graphics systems featuring iSQ and CAMIO, and Chyron’s news graphics management solution. The systems, which provide graphics and branding for MDR’s news bulletins, are installed in the broadcaster’s graphics center.
Developed in conjunction with MDR, Chyron’s iRB is a browser-based tool, allowing anyone to create, share, and manage running orders via any LAN or WAN connection. Users can easily browse and fulfill Chyron graphics and clip templates and prepare a running order ready for immediate playout without interrupting the newsroom, while streamlining the production workflow.
iSQ, Chyron’s remote monitoring and playout application, features a thumbnail display of preview and air messages, giving MDR operators the ability to play out any message on any playlist, at any time. Using the HyperX systems, the MDR operators can control independent output channels across multiple devices of MOS-generated playlists via the iSQ interface. Chyron’s CAMIO manages the distribution of assets, ensuring that all assets are available for air with simplified playout via the iSQ interface.
The new HyperX³ graphics systems include Chyron’s creation and playout application Lyric PRO.
“Germany is a very important market for Chyron, and we are delighted to announce this latest sale to MDR,” says Kevin Prince, Chyron COO. “Chyron and MDR have a very strong relationship built on trust and understanding, and we are very happy to once again be a part of this latest development.”
