What's New?

  • PRIME 4.7 

    • Introduced a powerful data table resource that makes it easier for sports networks and leagues to leverage large data sets to tell the story of a sporting event, significantly reducing the time needed to create league tables, team rosters, or dynamic player highlight templates.

    • New additions to PRIME’s control panel creation toolbox enable users to make simplified playout interfaces, in turn revving up operations in the production truck or control room.

    • New appearance and layout properties provide simple formatting of button size, position, and visuals, while a new base scene control resource enhances a designer’s experience for customizing control when working with parent scene graphics.

    • New shortcut keys for common sports operations, such as transferring or clearing all graphics from program to preview, add further efficiency to playout.


  • PRIME 4.8

    • With its brand-new JavaScript Effect & Resource tool, PRIME 4.8 gives users an intuitive interface with which to import and edit scripts entirely within the platform — and effortlessly apply them as parameters at the object, scene, project, and application level. Accompanying the new JavaScript tools is a host of new settings for scripting sandboxing security.

    • PRIME’s new auto-follow features help designers to create complex graphics that adapt to varying stats, and a new virtual group effect binds separate scene object positions together for a one-time design of table graphics with changing rows and columns.

    • For automated productions driven by external updates or by Chyron’s Intelligent Interface (II) protocol, new message ranges in PRIME save hours of time by eliminating the need to design hundreds of graphics variations. Instead, designers create a single playout recall range that references a parent scene template.

    • For playout operators, the Replaceable Panel provides rapid edit access to text, images, and style values — and control over external updates and data-bindings. Support for multiple graphic subfolders makes it easy for broadcasters to drive a variety of sports productions from a single project, using identical numeric recalls for playout on every show.


  • PRIME 4.9 (Beta at IBC 2023)
    • Focus on optimized performance and continued commitment to fast, efficient data management at every point in the graphics workflow. 

    • Auto-bypass in the case of a hardware crash may be implemented now directly from the user interface. Memory Preview options offer a choice to drop frames in preview to conserve memory resources. The GPU Texture Memory Preview offers improved texture caching to accommodate more and larger clip files. 

    • Adding to the already impressive array of PRIME data-centric features, PRIME now offers a workflow for SMT (SportsMEDIA Technology) data. Additionally, any type of data managed by PRIME may now be tied to PRIME base scenes. A base scene can serve as a reference for design elements of multiple scenes, thus allowing the design of a complete package or group of scenes to be modified simply by changing the base scene. That same efficiency may now be achieved for changing the data or data set referenced by a group of scenes.


  • PAINT 9.6 (Beta at IBC 2023)
    • Advanced Cut Out Tool features that can be used within a live preview of the video. It is also possible now to add keyframing, placing the cut out player in more than one position over time.

    • Host of Cursor Tools that include the Cursor Ball Tool, which can create balls (or in the case of hockey, a puck) for any of eight different sports. There is also the XO tool, which can create an X or an O, helpful for showing positions or formations, and a Zoom Circle tool, which creates a zoom on the ball. In addition to these various object and positional indicators, PAINT now allows the analyst to highlight an entire region on the pitch, field or other playing surface.

    • Users may now edit a property of a tool across multiple instances of the tool all at once. For example, if a user creates a circle around each of three players, they can bulk select those circles to simultaneously change the diameter, the color or any other property of those circles all at once, saving time and ensuring a consistent look. 

    • Working with keyframes, users can speed their process by utilizing a new keyboard shortcut that allows them to jump to the next or previous keyframe. Another time saver is the ability to bulk import clips, automatically checking if they are each in the correct format.
    • New notification features help eliminate confusion or time-wasting errors. Because use of the 3D tool requires 3D Pitch Calibration, a notification appears for users who try to use the 3D tool without the proper calibration, for clarification. Additional new notification features are associated with the clip menu to alert users if they are about to overwrite existing paths or calibrations. 

    • Multi-Angle telestration allows the presenter may telestrate the video from one camera, but with this new feature, the telestration can appear automatically on video from other cameras showing the same event. Broadening capabilities for how PAINT content is presented to audiences, users can now easily select a pre-configured “skin” from a dropdown menu. The skin determines what aspects of the user interface are visible to the viewer and how they are arranged. There is also a Presentation Window that allows users two options: one with the user interface and one with only the telestrated video without the UI tools. 

Cloud-Native All-In-One
(Chyron LIVE)

Chyron LIVE®

    • Chyron LIVE® is a cloud native, all-in-one live production application that includes broadcast-grade animated graphics, multi-camera vision mixing, clip playback, illustrated sports replay, and audio control, all from a single user interface. Chyron LIVE is hosted on the AWS cloud and has been developed according to AWS best practices. Users may log in from anywhere with internet access via a web browser, working solo or in distributed teams.


Key Advantages of Chyron LIVE

  • Web-based Complete Live Production Platform

  • Extremely Cost Effective Live Production
  • Flexible Input & Output Capabilities

  • Built for the Cloud

What's New?

  • Launch to Now 

    • Chyron LIVE launched in April of 2022 and shortly afterwards, won the NAB Best In Show awards.

    • Since then, numerous Proof of Concept trials have been implemented with a variety of organizations, from large scale live production services organizations to small university athletic programs. These POCs have garnered kudos from users and have provided invaluable feedback, driving the development of Chyron LIVE to achieve the vision of a unique, comprehensive production tool, available at a low cost barrier to entry, enabling any organization to produce and monetize broadcast grade live content.

  • LIVE 1.3 

    • Introduced a Matchpad module that empowers virtually any user to manage dynamic motion graphics for live sports production by providing an easy, intuitive sport-specific user interface with all of the tools needed to cover the particular sport. This first implementation of Matchpad in LIVE 1.3 focuses on football (soccer), but the technology provides a foundation for simplified graphics control interfaces for a variety of sports in future LIVE releases.

    • Prior to a game, users enter team and player information and branding elements into a simple configuration spreadsheet. During the game, this spreadsheet automatically populates the event’s graphic design template. As a play unfolds, a visually intuitive control panel provides straightforward controls for highlighting important game elements — goals, yellow/red flags, lineups, substitutions, and more — and push-button commands for bringing in sponsor graphics during key game moments.

    • Enhanced streaming capabilities, improved configuration settings, and increased user control. The new SRT Caller Output allows users to send the live production output to a specific device for playout, ensuring it smoothly traverses the IT firewall network through a trusted IP and port address. A new input/output configuration provides more information about essential settings for different streaming connections, as well as advanced settings to optimize redundancy, bitrate, and CIDR parameters.


  • LIVE 1.4
    • New AI-based instant replay tool that empowers production crews — especially those in single-operator scenarios — by automatically detecting and clipping major plays so they can be quickly and easily inserted into the live program. While currently available only for soccer, this tool provides a technological foundation for various sports in future LIVE releases. When the algorithm watches the camera inputs and recognizes an interesting play, such as a player taking a shot on net or a goal being scored, an icon indicates that a point of interest is occurring and the operator simply clicks the icon to generate the replay clip around the play.  For greater control and flexibility, users can manually adjust the start point of the AI-generated clip.

    • The Replay Transition effect effectively serves as a built-in macro, triggering several actions that are commonly involved in a replay: queue up a transition wipe, play the graphic, start the clip, and animate the clip off with another transition, saving the operator the time of executing each action individually and bringing enterprise switcher efficiency to Chyron LIVE
    • Management of telestration effects made much more intuitive, allowing operators to adjust the pathing keyframes and effect duration, and to delete specific effects from a saved clip without needing to start over.


  • LIVE 1.5 (Beta at IBC 2023)
    • Improved security features, including encryption for SRT streams and SRT audio, encrypted Web RTC commentary, RTMPS encryption, and alerts for input or assets that are not encrypted. Specifically, these features position Chyron LIVE for the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR). The FTR enables partners, such as Chyron LIVE to identify and remediate risks, promoting AWS Well-Architected.

    • Improving the SaaS and remote workflow experience, Chyron LIVE now offers self service user activation of a Chyron LIVE production environment. Further, the user interface now offers responsive design, allowing users to work from a desktop, laptop or tablet, regardless of monitor size, and be able to see the entire user interface.

    • Clips, both those imported to LIVE as well as the replay clips created in LIVE play an important role in the Chyron LIVE production workflow. Based on user feedback, the LIVE 1.5 release features auto-play for clips in the output channel, eliminating a mouse click when speed is crucial. Auto-clear of an Instant Replay now means that the operator does not need to manually clear a channel upon completion of the replay.

  • CAMIO Integrates with the NLE of Your Choice

    • CAMIO can not only send your PRIME graphics to the NRCS rundown for live playout, but can also send them to leading NLE (non-linear editors) bringing PRIME graphics into the post-production video editing suite so that your edited pieces such as pre-recorded interviews or mini-documentaries have the same graphics look as your live graphics, without additional design work.
    • CAMIO integrates PRIME graphics with Grass Valley Edius, and more!

  • Chyron Weather

    • Weather is a key element of many newscasts. Chyron Weather offers a comprehensive toolset that brings together design and data, serving the needs of the meteorologist presenter as well as offering content suitable for broadcast without a meteorologist.


What's New?

  • CAMIO 5.3 

    • New User Access Control Panel allows administrators to create dynamic user permission groups across distributed teams.. Thus, local stations enjoy edit access over localized graphics projects without overwriting master packages that should only be edited by the designated art department. With either a centralized hub-and-spoke model or a more distributed stem-and-leaf model, the right people have the right permissions to access and edit content.

    • New API connecting PRIME and CAMIO that enables XMP metadata to auto-fill replaceable text fields of PRIME graphics within CAMIO, saving time and eliminating typos. Additionally, a new timecode OUT for graphics allows journalists and producers working with CAMIO’s NRCS plugin, LUCI, to specify a precise time when the graphic playout ends, overriding any duration set in the template’s animations.
    • Provides an easy pathway to bring PRIME graphics from a CAMIO template library into an Edius editing project. The CAMIO NLE Plugin has long been a feature of CAMIO, and ongoing updates to accommodate leading NLE applications help users ensure a consistent look across live and post-produced content, often through efficient, centralized creation of all graphics for live and post.

    • CAMIO 5.3 now integrates with SNews Arion, an NRCS that is gaining traction in the news industry with its easy-to-use interface and tools. This furthers Chyron’s commitment to ensure that CAMIO works in all newsroom environments, regardless of the NRCS vendor. Chyron also has upgraded existing NRCS integrations with support for the latest versions of ENPS, OpenMedia, iNews, and Inception News.

    • Offers integration with Seven Mountains DiNA, a fully cloud-based NRCS with an on premises gateway
    • Includes new asset management efficiency and quality features: watch folder ingest logic, exportable folder content lists, a file size meter displayed prior to file transfers, user defined asset deletion preferences across a hub and spoke ecosystem and user defined preferences for asset purge filters.

  • PRIME 4.7 
    • Link any object in the scene tree for auto follow, enabling creation of endlessly-adaptable scenes. Users can further customize their auto follow parameters with settings for position, scale, and minimum padding – to nail a specific look.

    • New Scene Tree Search Highlight function displays search results for scene elements while maintaining the scene hierarchy.
    • Generate assets for pre-production and post-production at optimal file sizes entirely within PRIME, rather than cropping assets in a third-party application. The Canvas Region of Interest makes it easy to crop scenes for thumbnails and export as image or movie files – perfect for removing unneeded alpha space that bloats file size.

    • New Shadow and Feather properties ensure shadows will look elegant when used alongside clip plane effects, ensuring they don’t render as hard edges in your scene.

    • Auto-fill the descriptions of replaceables in a scene with the ID name to ensure that templates uploaded to CAMIO LUCI module always have the essential replaceable name value.

    • XMP databinding will carry through to CAMIO’s LUCI module, ensuring producers can leverage the same simplified workflow within their NRCS.

    • New Playout Condition Hotkeys make it possible to tab into a control panel object and press a hotkey to run a condition, such as changing the color or font weight of a selected object on command.

    • Apply changes at the scene-group level with a new Parent Keyword syntax command that can be applied to Condition Hotkeys. Additional syntax commands provide greater control and visibility over expansive, multichannel playout environments – without the need to resort to complex C# scripting. These commands can control channels, display available playout resources, start/stop specific objects in channels, and much more – all of which are bindable to Condition Hotkeys.

    • Provides warning prompts when it detects conflicts within your parameters, providing details of conflicts and missing children objects for troubleshooting purposes.

    • Displays input status signals for RTP, RTSP, RTMP, and RTMPS streams within the user interface. Previously, these input status signals were limited to traditional SDI, NDI, and IP signals.

    • The PRIME user interface will now clearly display PRIME software and engine versions, along with warning pop-ups when running incompatible software + hardware configurations.


  • PRIME 4.8 
    • New Message Range feature for automated productions driven by external updates or Chyron’s Intelligent Interface protocol. Message Ranges save hours of operator time by eliminating the design requirement for hundreds of graphics variations. Rather than creating every graphic file on disk, designers can create a single playout recall range that will reference a parent scene template.

    • New Table Resource as a replaceable element within a scene, making this data available and editable in the NRCS via Chyron’s CAMIO workflow or updatable via automated production controls.

    • New color-grading tools across all PRIME input and output channels enable users to import and assign the same LUT (Look Up Table) file presets in-use on their video feeds to PRIME graphics — resulting in the perfect HDR output without the need for downstream conversion hardware.

    • Render clips directly from the playout interface in any of PRIME’s supported codecs, with support for region-of-interest export to optimize file sizes. 


  • PRIME 4.9 (Beta at IBC 2023)
