Chyron Corporation, is pleased to introduce ChyTV, a dynamic television information display system that allows the addition of video graphics and text to an external video feed without disrupting the program, whether from broadcast TV, cable, satellite, CCTV, VCR or DVD. Cost effective yet powerful and flexible, ChyTV is well suited for a variety of applications, including use as a video messaging and emergency alert system for television networks in government buildings and military facilities. ChyTV will be formally introduced at the Government Video Technology Expo, to be held at the Washington D.C. Convention Center in Washington, D.C., from October 6-7.

With over 30 years of expertise in high-end broadcast television graphics, Chyron has developed a new product area to address the booming digital signage and security alert markets. Chyron CEO Michael Wellesly-Wesley said, ?The ChyTV system is easily integrated into the existing video infrastructure of any government facility. Its core function is to facilitate the insertion of security alert information and relevant instructions into broadcast video streams in real time. The information displayed coupled with programmable audio alerts may be displayed on a single TV screen or broadcast throughout the facility. ChyTV is easy to install, intuitive in its operation, and extremely cost effective. We believe it to be an important component in the communication of timely information and the safeguarding of employees in government installations.

With ChyTV, a video region can be resized and positioned from page to page with smooth dynamic transitions while graphic and text regions can be assigned to surround or overlay the video window. These graphic regions include crawls, active data updates such as time and temperature or full page slides from HL sources. In addition, audio WAV files may be integrated for sound clips and audio alerts. All graphic pages can be scheduled using the play list or overridden using the network interface.

Creating graphic content is easy as ChyTV uses the output from common authoring programs such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe Photoshop, or the supplied templates. Then, using a simple, intuitive scheduling interface, pages can be added to a Playlist for either looping or date/time playout. Pages and the Playlist are then loaded into the ChyTV via standard Compact Flash interface, USB, or Ethernet connection, and ChyTV begins playing. This self-contained operation requires no external computer connection and ensures superior reliability and ease of use. ChyTV is also scalable to accommodate individual stand-alone applications as well as large worldwide networks.
