Sports leagues, particularly professional soccer leagues throughout Europe and elsewhere, have taken advantage of ChyronHego’s player tracking and analysis technology in an effort to “up their game”.
Post Storm Analysis
As the Northern Atlantic and Pacific Tropical Storm season was peaking, the North Western Atlantic was experiencing fully what fury the tropical weather can bring. Just a week after Harvey made Hurricane History in Houston, Hurricane Irma was barreling down on the Caribbean, bringing destruction and devastation on the small nations of the Lesser Antilles, Barbuda, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti.
Back in 2013, Chyron Corporation and Hego Group had just finalized their merger and I think the industry as a whole was looking on and wondering...what does all of this mean? As head of the engineering team at Chyron, to be quite honest...I was wondering the same thing. Usually a merger in our industry leads to some kind of dissection or even death of various aspects of one or both entities and I think that is what many were expecting.
Over the last couple of years, we’ve all witnessed how studio set designers are taking advantage of the larger canvas – and every pixel – offered by modern monitor display technology. And it’s easy to see why. When implemented in a way that actually helps the producer tell a better story, broadcasters of all sizes can create spectacular in-studio productions while at the same time heighten audience engagement and viewership.
NOAA – the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration – has recently added a new star to the team of geo-synchronous weather satellites, GOES-R (GOES-16). GOES-16 is not just another satellite or just another version of the now so well known GOES series of weather satellites; it represents an entirely new paradigm of weather satellites. Probably the best analogy would be the new paradigm that the Tesla Motors cars represent vs. the line of self-propelled vehicles, starting with the Model T Ford, or what your iPhone camera represents vs. the once popular Polaroid cameras. The image below, courtesy of NOAA and NASA, shows the difference in image quality between the new GOES-16 and the until now used GOES-13.
It's about clarity, accuracy, resolution. It also provides new ability for closeups and fly-over, like is seen using ChyronHego's Metacast (below)
