Belgium’s Télé Bruxelles Builds New Look on Chyron’s Channel Box² Channel Branding System

Chyron System Debuted for Elections Coverage and Soon Will Support Launch of Dynamic New Graphics Package for Daily Newscasts

LONDON — Jan. 15, 2013 — Chyron today announced that Belgium’s Télé Bruxelles is using the Channel Box² channel branding system to bring rich branding and graphical elements into live productions. The Brussels-based broadcaster initially deployed the Channel Box² to enhance its October 2012 coverage of municipal elections. As it completes a new graphics package for daily newscasts, Télé Bruxelles will leverage the Chyron system to incorporate dynamic presentations into its live news productions.

“Chyron’s Channel Box² is enabling us to revitalize our newscasts with fresh, dynamic graphic elements,” said Fabian Schewebach, project manager and audiovisual technician at Télé Bruxelles. “Using it to integrate RSS feeds, touch screen and iPad control, and social media feeds into our live newscasts, we will be able to offer our viewers a far more engaging and sophisticated news product. Despite the many different ways in which it allows graphics to interact, the system itself is easy to operate.”

The Chyron system allows users to generate stunning 3D animations and play them to air in real time. All animations created in Lyric(R) PRO, including rotating 3D objects with live data, are instantly available in Channel Box², giving productions a high-quality graphical look without requiring any pre-rendering. With Channel Box², Télé Bruxelles staff will be able to automate credit squeezes, produce promos live to air, and dynamically update text, images, and movie files.

Built on Chyron’s Lyric technology, Channel Box² allows users to access any data — RSS feeds, traffic, financial, weather, elections, tickers, promos, snipes, social media, and more — and publish it to air anywhere and anytime. Channel Box² software also features SHOUT(TM), Chyron’s social media editor, a software-based solution that allows the operator to monitor and pull incoming tweets or Facebook posts from any feed and quickly display them on air.

“Channel Box² gives broadcasters a straightforward yet powerful solution for incorporating engaging and informative graphic elements into special event coverage as well as daily newscasts,” said Lou Garvin, product manager at Chyron. “By putting the best of today’s social media tools and popular control surfaces into the hands of producers and on-air talent, Channel Box² also can add greater sophistication and interest to live news programs.”

More information about Chyron and the company’s products is available at www.chyron.com.

When You Leave Home, MemClickTM Leaves With You

Marietta GA, January 15, 2013 – ExackTM LLC has launch its new high quality digital mini voice recorder, MemClickTM. At $29.95, it fills the niche between expensive voice recorders and toys. On a key ring or attached to a pocketbook, it’s always available. Simple to use, with one finger, it can make a voice recording or playback high quality sound, at controllable levels anywhere. No need to plug it into a computer to play back.

MemClick records up to 8 minutes and you can instantly locate notes from three folders (red, yellow and green) with lighted buttons and play them back. It can record up to 60 memos on a single battery charge that will last for weeks. The MemClick, manufactured in the USA, connects to any USB port for recharging (rechargeable battery and USB cable are included).

There are basically two types of portable voice recorders, cassette and digital. Digital voice recorders are much easier to use than cassettes, because there‘s no need to rewind them endlessly to find a particular recorded section to play back and there’s no tape to jam or wear out as with other cassette audio recorders. And MemClick records or plays without having to look at it while driving. But what good is any audio recorder, if you don’t have it with you when you need it?

The uses for MemClick are endless.
● Memory help for Alzheimer’s support, short term memory loss or stroke victims
● Make lists; shopping list, honey-do list, measurements and many more.
● On car key rings, Record driving directions; have detailed instructions all the way; On-the-go memos to yourself; Contact information.
● Never spend time in the rain again hunting for a car in a crowded parking lot. Record the row location.
● Hang it on a refrigerator as a family member locator. Each family member can leave an intended destination and return time.
● In bed, no need to hunt paper and pen, place it on a night-stand for bed-side notes, phone numbers, and ideas.
● Keep it with the TV remote to note TV ad info such as advertised product phone number and web site address.
● The MemClick makes a perfect trade show promotional give-away or gift and is also for people who have everything, but can’t remember where they left it.

To make MemClick more accessible, one accessory available is an extension/retraction cord. The cord holder clips easily with a spring-loaded clip to anything. The key ring nylon cord extends out 24″. It has a latch with an easy spring release. A split key ring is attached. It is manufactured from metal and plastic. The dimensions are (approx): 1-3/8″ wide, 2-1/4″ long and 1/2″ thick.

Electrosonic Turns Heads at the Hollywood Wax Museum

When the Hollywood Wax Museum refurbished its on-the-street lobby to attract the attention of passers-by, Electrosonic was called upon to design and install a number of HD video displays to capture the interest of strollers on Hollywood Boulevard.

The monitor displays show a montage of newly-made clips that pay homage to all genres of Hollywood movies, ranging from classic westerns and Sci-Fi spectaculars to musical extravaganzas, war films and mysteries. All of the displays can show the same images simultaneously or rotate the content.

Electrosonic provided a 2×1 grouping of 55-inch Samsung monitors and another configuration of 3×1 55-inch Samsung monitors, both in portrait mode, to the lobby. Custom enclosures were provided for three Innovox speakers mounted to the exterior.

Electrosonic also placed two pairs of 46-inch Samsung monitors in portrait mode on two columns over the cashier’s desk in the lobby, and created the lobby’s back wall from two 3×3 video displays, comprised of 46-inch Samsung monitors in landscape mode.

The company selected Samsung HD video monitors for their reasonable price point and super-thin mullions, which deliver almost seamless imagery. rpVisuals furnished custom monitor brackets for all the monitors, and Elliott Metal Fabrication consulted on the custom mounting and seismic-rated installation.

Electrosonic project manager Dan Laspa says the job posed the usual challenges for “an old Hollywood building,” including obtaining seismic certification for the monitor mounts. “We worked only at night when the museum was closed,” he adds, “so we wouldn’t impede business in any way.”

Electrosonic provided an Alcorn McBride Video Binloop player for the monitor displays, plus an Alcorn McBride InterActivator interactive video disc controller, which Laspa says was “perfect for this installation.” The system, programmed by Electrosonic, is easy for museum employees to operate; they can start the content loop in the morning and stop it at night, as well as alter the pause time between loops if crowds demand more frequent playback. All of the equipment is housed in a single small rack in a closet behind the main lobby.

About Electrosonic
Electrosonic is an international audio-visual company that creates tailored, state-of-the-art solutions for a wide range of markets including theme parks, museums, control rooms, and corporate meeting rooms. Since its founding in 1964, Electrosonic has built a strong reputation for working on complex projects, both large and small, and has developed lasting partnerships with customers and suppliers. Beyond complete integrated systems, Electrosonic provides a comprehensive scope of services including technical design, projector lamp sales, maintenance and operational support.
