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.

X2O Platform Turns SharePoint Content Into Real-Time TV Channels

MONTREAL — July 5, 2012 — X2O Media, a full-service provider of real-time enterprise visual communications solutions, today announced that the company will be demonstrating its SharePoint(R) TV platform at the 2012 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, taking place July 8-12 in Toronto.

SharePoint TV is a visual communication and collaboration platform that lets users create TV-like channels using content already stored in SharePoint. Users can easily build interactive channels that can be viewed from any desktop, tablet, display screen, or mobile device. With links to SharePoint content and data, any changes made in SharePoint are automatically reflected in the channels, giving viewers instant access to the most relevant enterprise information. In addition, users can fully leverage their investment in SharePoint by presenting the information using eye-catching visuals that viewers will enjoy watching, greatly improving internal and external communications.

With SharePoint TV, users can simply link to SharePoint information sources such as calendars, announcements, project tasks, and dashboard data to display information quickly on a variety of screens throughout an organization using stunning graphics and video. Sample channels include company and department news, employee training, executive dashboards, and much more. SharePoint TV is fully compatible with Windows(R) 8 and Windows Azure(TM).

For timely messages and alerts, information can be entered directly into SharePoint and rapidly sent throughout an organization or to specific staff or locations. For more creative collaboration and knowledge sharing, employees can also publish videos, images, and PowerPoint(R) slides that appear within the SharePoint interface. The result is a powerful communications tool with the look and feel of a broadcast TV channel, enabling enterprises, retailers, and other organizations of any size to spread their messages in an engaging way.

More information on X2O products is available at www.x2omedia.com.
