HAWTHORNE, N.Y. — July 18, 2012 — BTX Technologies, a value-added distributor and manufacturer of interface, integration, and system products, today introduced its MediaMessenger(TM) Digital Signage Kit, which includes everything needed to set up a digital signage system quickly in one cost-effective package.

The BTX MediaMessenger Digital Signage Kit is powered by PADS4 digital signage software. With PADS4, users can easily integrate real-time data from sources including Microsoft(R) Exchange, Microsoft Dynamics(R), SAP, content management systems, room reservation systems, queue management, and social media. Interactivity can also be incorporated into signage systems using touchscreens, RFID, barcodes, QR codes, and face recognition.

Ideal for media-intensive presentations, content is driven to the Kit’s display by the BTX MediaMessenger Media Player. Developed in collaboration with the most sophisticated hardware engineers in the country, the MediaMessenger player is optimized for PowerPoint(R) content, Flash(R), 1080p video, rotating pictures, scrolling text, and more.

The Gold, Silver, and Bronze Suites are all available with 32-inch, 42-inch, or 55-inch displays, with the Silver and Gold Suites also offering 42-inch touchscreen displays. The Bronze Suite supports basic content including text and images. For more sophisticated presentations, the Silver Suite adds support for video and sound, web, interactivity, Flash, and more. For the ultimate in multimedia, the Gold Suite is bolstered with support for presentation-in-presentation, television, charts, tables, PDFs, and RS-232. To ensure proper set-up, the Silver and Gold Suites both include one hour of integrator training. An additional two hours of technical support from BTX’s expert staff is included with the Gold Suite.

“Our cost-effective MediaMessenger Digital Signage Kit includes everything needed to get a digital signage system up and running in a matter of hours instead of days,” said Greg Schwartz, president of BTX. “Once set up, the PADS4 software saves network operators the time and expense of duplicating content by integrating with existing databases and more, while our MediaMessenger Media Player delivers exceptional performance for media-intensive content. With three different versions to choose from, we offer the right solution for any installation.”

French Broadcast Leader TF1 Chooses Chyron for Branding of LCI News Channel

LONDON — July 11, 2012 — France’s number one broadcaster, TF1, has installed Chyron’s Ticker Tool — a solution driven by Chyron’s Channel Box² graphics branding and promo technology — to provide channel branding for LCI, the network’s popular 24-hour news channel. At LCI, the newly developed Ticker Tool drives creation of all channel brand elements including clock, logos, and tickers for weather, stocks, and news headlines.

“We needed a significant upgrade to our graphics presentations in order to stay competitive in our market,” said Olivier Tremon, head of internal production at TF1. “The Chyron solution has proven to be an excellent choice at LCI, providing state-of-the-art channel branding and animation capabilities as well as up-to-the-minute ticker information that our operators can easily manage and modify.”

The Chyron Ticker Tool offers a user-friendly interface for LCI to generate tickers and populate them with rolling content from third-party data sources for weather, stock prices, sports results, and other current and rapidly changing information. For stories automatically built and updated from external data sources, such as stock market data, the Ticker Tool provides spellchecking, cut-and-paste from third-party applications, and the ability to edit stories and modify layouts in a word-processing environment. Bin-and-sequence windows enable operators to build and reorder sequences simply by dragging and dropping them from the bin, a time-saving capability especially useful when inserting breaking news information.

“TF1 is a household name in France and one of the most influential broadcasters in Europe, so we were honored when the network chose Chyron to provide channel branding for the popular LCI news channel,” said Paul Glasgow, vice president of EMEA sales at Chyron.

Chyron dealer MagicHour provided support for the implementation of the Ticker Tool and Channel Box² solution installed in the main TF1 broadcasting facility in Paris.
