Chyron Delivers Web-Based Content Distribution Service

Chyron
Corporation, a provider of broadcast graphics software for the world’s
television broadcasters, announces the release of ChyTV.net web-based content
distribution services for Dynamic Digital Signage Networks. The new service
works exclusively with Chyron’s ChyTV Dynamic Digital Signage Player product
line.

According
to John Remmler, Chyron’s VP for ChyTV, this technology represents “A major
shift in paradigm for Digital Signage Networks,” in that “for the first time an
enterprise deployment of digital signage can be achieved with a minimum of
technical hurdles.”

Minuk
Choi, Principal Developer of the ChyTV.net service, points out that “Setup of a
player unit on the web-based service is automatic and takes less than 2
minutes. ChyTV Player Devices ‘pull’ content from the web-based server, thus
eliminating firewall issues and maximizing security.” He further explains that “Content
is sent to the web-based server from any computer on the Internet and ChyTV
players poll the server for changes to the content and remain synchronized. The
service can even back-haul as-played log data for verification purposes.”

This
simplified architecture requires no dedicated Network Operations Center (NOC)
to create a large enterprise signage deployment. In addition, ChyTV.net
integrates third-party data services offering access to news, sports, weather
and other on-line feeds. “Digital Signage Network Operators have been awaiting
a simple-to-use solution and this technology should have a major impact on the
number and quality of networks deployed,

Michael Wellesley-Wesley, Chyron President and CEO.
