The stations group will integrate the online content creation service with other Chyron products and use it to produce graphics across many of its stations, the vendor said in announcing the deal.
The Fox Television Stations have entered into a multi-year agreement to use Chyron’s AXIS online content creation services at many of its stations, the vendor announced today.
According to Chryon, the Fox O&Os are already using such Chyron products as the graphic asset management server CAMIO, the multi-channel clip and still store system XClyps and the HyperX graphics systems.
Integration with AXIS empowers Fox to maintain total control of their on-air graphics ‘look’ by producing graphics within the AXIS-hosted environment, the vendor said.
“We are delighted to welcome Fox…as the latest user of AXIS services,” said Chyron President Michael Wellesley-Wesley in a prepared statement. “Our companies have had a long collaborative history and we are pleased to help with this project.
“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,” he said.
AXIS facilitates the rapid creation of daily breaking news graphics. Because it integrates directly with multiple content providers, cycle time from creation to air is drastically reduced, according to Chryon.
