Making its IBC debut is Metacast, ChyronHego’s weather graphics system that combines data input and editing, visualisation and on-air play out.
Metacast is continuously updated with radar, satellite, model forecast, pinpoint city/location forecasts, and remote weather station data. The platform can be used to create local, regional and global weather content for TV, tablet, mobile or web.
Technologies featured on ChyronHego’s stand also include the TRACAB image tracking system that uses Super-HD cameras and image processing technology to identify the position of all moving objects in a sports arena. ChyronHego’s software analyses every image to extract X, Y and Z positions for each object, enabling three-dimensional tracking in real-time. TRACAB data can be streamed to various visualisation platforms such as broadcast graphics and second screens, and can be used to prepare performance statistics. An enhanced TRACAB product portfolio includes newly acquired ZXY transponder-based player tracking technology.
Also on the stand is the Virtual Placement virtual graphics system; Virtual Football, a virtual graphics system for use with live football production; Paint, a sports telestration system; and GS2 Multi-Touch, a studio touch screen system.
