LONDON--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2013) - ChyronHego (
"The ChyronHego solution for ITV's regional news graphics production has enabled us to transform the way we produce quality on-screen graphics live-to-air," said Paul Stevenson, director of technology and technical operations at ITV News. "We have centralised our creative graphics hub, allowing our small team of skilled designers to collaborate and serve our dispersed regional news studio operations. Journalists in the regions will have a powerful set of templates giving them the capability to produce their own high-quality graphics with a fast turnaround to serve their local news programmes."
BlueNet leverages ChyronHego's award-winning suite of graphics tools to streamline ordering and graphics asset management, graphics creation, and real-time playout in a complete graphics workflow, from creation through to production. ITV selected BlueNet following an extensive evaluation process, and the resulting installation will include ChyronHego's CAMIO Cluster, located at the ITV News Birmingham hub, for asset management, content replication, and business continuity. Each regional site will be equipped with a CAMIO server that will manage local assets; a pair of LEX3˙1 graphics playout devices; MicroX graphics playout systems; and ChyronHego's MediaMaker, seamlessly creating graphics for editing applications such as Avid Media Composer, NewsCutter, and others. The ChyronHego Desktop Multi-viewer will enable remote monitoring, maintenance, and control of any devices.
ITV News will employ ChyronHego's full line of Axis World Graphics cloud-based solutions. Major modules from the platform will include Axis maps and news for content creation; Axis order for workflow management, job tasking, monitoring, and control; and Axis Statistical Reporting for productivity management.
"ChyronHego is all about workflow, ease of use, and how fast graphics can be designed, updated and pushed to air," said Michael Wellesley-Wesley, CEO at ChyronHego. "As ITV News discovered in testing BlueNet, the benefits of implementing our hybrid graphics workflow within the multisite news production model are stunning. Cloud-based centralisation of graphics creation yields better access to shared assets, enhances collaboration among staff, improves interoperability with third-party systems, and enables a dramatic reduction in production time. We have been fine-tuning the news workflow for many years now, and with its launch of BlueNet, ITV News will experience first-hand the enormous power of ChyronHego solutions."
At the time of this release, ITV Granada and ITV Central are both fully commissioned and operational. The remaining regional rollout will continue until summer 2013.
