Chyron’s ENGAGE Receives 2012 STAR Award

ENGAGE, Chyron’s second screen platform, is the recipient of the 2012 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award presented by the editorial staff of TV Technology magazine at the 2012 NAB Show.

Chyron’s ENGAGE platform is designed for integrating second screen, social media, and social TV data into live TV broadcasts. Making these popular technologies available through existing Chyron graphics system interfaces, ENGAGE eliminates the need for custom integration and gives broadcasters a low-cost, low-risk way to incorporate a range of engaging and dynamic new elements into their live news and sports programming.

The ENGAGE platform offers easy-to-use producer tools with which users can create interactions in just minutes. Rich call-to-action graphics, info-graphics, and tickers can be generated automatically using social and poll data. Because ENGAGE fits seamlessly into Chyron’s BlueNet graphics workflows, broadcasters can take advantage of social TV and second screen technologies while remaining within their routine production workflows.

Chyron’s charter partners for the ENGAGE platform include ConnecTV, with its companion app polling technology; never.no, providing an end-to-end social TV platform for social TV, synchronized companion apps, and participation TV; Vibes, with its text, Twitter, and Web voting technology; and Mass Relevance, with its curation platform licensed to resyndicate Twitter content and data.
