LyricX 2.0 unwrapped9 September 2016
Version 2.0 of ChyronHego’s LyricX graphics creation and playout system is at IBC. “With LyricX 2.0, we’ve broadened the platform and amped its performance to drive the full gamut of today’s broadcast requirements, from HD to 4K and any type of graphics application, into the future,” said CTO Sören Kjellin.
In addition to new UI and usability enhancements, graphics designers and authors can expect a performance boost, the company said. LyricX 2.0 now enables users to execute macros and perform other tasks, such as load-and-play and clip handling, up to five times faster than the first-generation LyricX, according to ChyronHego.
Through its support of broadcast IP transport protocols such as SMPTE 2022-6 and Aspen, LyricX 2.0 allows users to move between SDI and IP, and 4K and HD video all in the same graphics platform. LyricX 2.0 also provides native support for the NewTek NDI IP protocol.
