Chyron Creative Services and Phase 3 Production Score With Winning On-Air Graphics Design

Companies Collaborate to Raise the Profile of Jamaica’s Red Stripe Premier League Broadcasts

MELVILLE, N.Y. — May 23, 2012 — Chyron today announced that its Creative Services division has teamed up with Phase 3 Productions — a TV, film, and multimedia production company based in Kingston, Jamaica — in overhauling TV broadcasts for the country’s Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL). Chyron Creative Services helped Phase 3 to identify the graphics, data, and functionality needed to give its coverage the high production value typical of the world’s most prominent soccer leagues and teams. Additionally, the team designed and built the requisite graphics and optimized its integration with the database that supports information-rich graphics playout via Phase 3′s LEX² graphics system.

“Because many football fans in Jamaica watch broadcasts from high-profile leagues such as the Barclay’s Premier League, they have come to expect a very high standard of production,” said Delano Forbes, director at Phase 3 Productions. “One of the most important elements of sports coverage is the presentation of numbers, and graphics and statistics are the main way in which that information is presented. Through our work with the Chyron Creative Services team, we’ve dramatically improved this element within our RSPL broadcasts. In addition, Red Stripe, a subsidiary of global giant Diageo, felt that the Chyron partnership brought added value to the televised productions.”

With Red Stripe’s sponsorship, Phase 3 is able to introduce regular Monday night football matches enhanced with the addition of new camera angles, replay capability, theme music, and audio effects; a much greater depth of stats and information; and the full branding and graphics package designed in conjunction with Chyron’s Creative Services team.

As an existing Chyron customer, Phase 3 already works within the Lyric graphics creation environment. With the aid of Chyron Creative Services, the company was able to design the graphics workflow to take full advantage of the Lyric software and the LEX² on-air graphics playout system.

“With its work on RSPL coverage, Phase 3 is raising the bar for how sports in Jamaica are covered,” said Bonnie Barclay, chief marketing officer at Chyron. “Never before have viewers seen local sports televised on this scale or with such a dynamic, professional look and feel. It’s a really remarkable advance that gives viewers a better experience while improving the visibility and popularity of the league’s sponsors, teams, and players.”

The first full RSPL season with the new look and feel will begin in September.

RTI’s RTiPanel App Now Available for Android(TM) Devices and Third-Generation Apple(R) iPad(R)

Customizable to Any Screen Size, App Provides Complete Control Over RTI’s XP Series Processors and Connected Devices With Full Two-Way Feedback

SHAKOPEE, Minn. — May 16, 2012 — Remote Technologies Incorporated (RTI) today announced that the company’s award-winning RTiPanel app is now available for Android(TM) devices and the new Apple(R) iPad(R). Compatible with Android smartphones and tablets of any screen size, the app boasts unique features such as two-way feedback, a customizable user interface, and highly optimized connection speeds to provide complete control over any RTI control system with an XP series control processor.

Raising the bar for control apps, the RTiPanel stands out from the pack with unique features such as full two-way feedback including cover art, weather graphics, dynamic image lists, and much more for an unprecedented control experience. The app supports connection locally via Wi-Fi and offers remote access via auto-switching Wi-Fi and 3G/4G wireless — allowing for control and monitoring from virtually anywhere in the world.

Programmed through RTI’s award-winning Integration Designer(R) software, the RTiPanel app can easily match the resolution of any screen size, even the new iPad Retina(TM) display. New high-resolution graphics and a completely customizable graphical user interface allow integrators to provide consumers with a consistent user experience across all RTI controllers in their systems. This also allows integrators the ability to create a unique interface designed to set their devices apart. All graphics are conveniently stored on the XP series processor and automatically download to the tablet or smartphone device when updates are made.

Redefining ease of use, the app displays in both portrait and landscape views by simply rotating the device. The programming process for supporting both orientations has been carefully designed to minimize the extra effort required.

“Our RTiPanel app has been a huge hit since its release for Apple devices, and was named a CEDIA Best New Product in 2011. We are very excited to bring this advanced functionality to Android users, in addition to providing compatibility with the latest iPad,” said Pete Baker, vice president of sales and marketing for RTI. “By allowing control and monitoring both at home and away, the app provides a perfect complement to our control systems; one which our dealers can now offer to all of their customers.”

The RTiPanel app is available now for download from Google Play (formerly Android Market), the Apple App Store(SM), and coming soon to the Amazon App Store. Installers can purchase licenses online from the RTI website or from an RTI distribution partner to enable communication with their RTI control system.
