Notable new features include Adobe Photoshop import with editable layers and text, keyboard support for quick graphics recall during authoring and playout, and keyframe capabilities to control ease.
ChyronHego has shipped version 3.5 of its advanced 4K- and HDR-ready PRIME Graphics platform with a series of enhancements to incorporate sophisticated and creative graphics into news and sports broadcasts, in-stadium productions, and government/corporate events.
Version 3.5 of ChyronHego’s PRIME Graphics platform introduces the following features and capabilities like Adobe Photoshop layer import which will allow designers now can import .PSD files and their associated layers, including editable text, into PRIME Graphics.
The platform also comes with an advanced keyboard support which gives users quick recalls for scene authoring, as well as easy manual playout — a particularly valuable capability in live sports and entertainment environments. With deep-end integration of scene parameters, graphics, and other assets triggering, operators can apply changes rapidly at the scene level using flexible keys.
The PRIME Graphics platform also features the keyframe ease editor which makes it easy to adjust the speed between keyframes. It allows designers working with PRIME Graphics to create more sophisticated 3D animations and transitions.
The product also comes with a multiple-style effect which allows users to apply multiple effects to a single text object for faster and easier graphics creation. This enhancement streamlines design workflows, allowing for multiple text styles in the same text box without forcing designers to account for spacing.
PRIME Graphics can be configured as a branding solution, an integrated clip player, a unified newsroom graphics system, a graphics-driven video wall solution, or an integrated touch-screen solution. Workflow options such as Live Mode editing and Base Scene promises to streamline authoring and playout with instant authoring feedback on render outputs and one-stop graphics-package adjustments.
Commenting on the product, Teus Groenewoud, vice president of product and technology at ChyronHego, said: “Driven by the industry’s most powerful rendering engine and equipped with a full set of authoring and playout applications, PRIME Graphics gives users the flexibility they need to deliver rich and engaging visual experiences. We’re excited to be augmenting PRIME Graphics’ already remarkable features with capabilities that allow for even greater efficiency in building and delivering creative state-of-the-art graphics.”
