Chyron Channel Box and CGS Newschief Combine to Simplify Delivery of Timely Data With Rich Broadcast Graphics

MELVILLE, N.Y. — Dec. 16, 2010 — Chyron today announced a new partnership through which the CGS Newschief system provides automated data feed services to the Chyron Channel Box. Integrated with the Channel Box channel branding and promo system, the CGS Newschief Data Feed system serves as a convenient central source for automated headlines, weather, sports scores and stats, stocks of local interest, and market indices. The Newschief system also makes it easy for Channel Box users to collect local data for automated on-air notification of school closings, weather alerts, election results, and high school sports scores.

“CGS is a leading provider of automated ticker systems and content feed services, and our partnership leverages the company’s data feed services along with the versatility and interoperability of the Channel Box to target our broadcast clients’ specific needs,” said Lou Garvin, product manager at Chyron. “The Channel Box is an easy-to-deploy, all-in-one solution for branding and tickers, and we’re pleased to be working with CGS to extend the ease with which Channel Box users can deliver timely localized news and information.”

The Chyron Channel Box is an HD/SD-switchable channel branding and automated promo system that features 2D/3D design and playout for branding applications including RSS feeds, weather information, traffic updates, financial data, tickers, crawls, snipes, “bag and tag,” promos, and end credits. The system’s real-time video, graphics effects, clips, and audio can be integrated with all variety of third-party automation systems, or it can be used as a stand-alone branding device. Interfacing smoothly with the CGS Newschief Data Feed, the Channel Box helps stations automate the labor-intensive task of collecting data from multiple sources and, in turn, merging that information with broadcast-quality graphics for on-air display.

“Broadcasters are looking for reliable, relevant news data, all from a single source,” said Bryan Mullins, partner at CGS. “Newschief delivers that content seamlessly to the Chyron Channel Box, providing stations with a complete HD/SD ticker and branding solution.”
