Melville, NY – May 11, 2009: Chyron (NASDAQ:CHYR) today announced that Fox Television Stations, Inc entered into a multi-year agreement to utilize Chyron's AXIS online content creation services at many of their stations.
AXIS facilitates the rapid creation of daily breaking news graphics. Because AXIS integrates directly with multiple content providers, cycle time from creation to air is drastically reduced and productivity greatly enhanced. AXIS tools, designed to be intuitive, can be used by everyone from reporters to production assistants to news producers, making graphics production far more efficient, with the added benefit of journalists and news producers retaining direct control of content and the ability to enhance any graphic look.
Adoption of AXIS services represents the first enterprise-class graphics workflow solution for Fox Television Stations, which are already using numerous Chyron products such as Chyron’s graphic asset management server CAMIO, the multi- channel clip and still store system XClyps and established HyperX graphics systems. Integration with AXIS empowers Fox Television Stations to maintain total control of their On-Air graphics ‘look’ by self fulfilling graphics at the local level within the AXIS hosted environment.
Chyron President Michael Wellesley-Wesley said, “The simplicity of the AXIS approach redefines the creation workflows and distribution of broadcast graphics in a multi-screen world.”
“It is clear that our AXIS online services will play an important role in the future of graphics production - on-air and online – for newspapers, radio, pure play internet and, of course, television broadcasters.”
