ChyronHego Advances Software-Driven Workflows with VPX Virtual Production Server
April 21, 2017 by Chuck Baker
ChyronHego has announced they will preview the all-new VPX Virtual Production Server at the 2017 NAB Show. VPX is a virtual server platform for hosting end-to-end live production workflows. By enabling broadcast news operations to run critical content creation and playout software in a virtualized, IT-based environment, VPX powers highly efficient, cost-effective, and easy-to-manage production operations for news, sports, and other programs.
“Today’s broadcasters have a critical need for efficient technology solutions, and, of course, total cost of ownership is a tremendous factor. That’s why we’re seeing the industry conversation shift towards IT, as operations adopt all-software-based workflows running on standard IT infrastructure instead of making new investments in proprietary hardware,” said Jesper Gawell, chief marketing officer, ChyronHego.
A key component of running live production workflows in a virtualized server environment is the ability to share and distribute video over IP within the virtualized server environment. The ChyronHego product family today supports NewTek‘s NDI® (Network Device Interface) bi-directional IP technology, which enables seamless and effortless video sharing. NDI and other protocols enable all ChyronHego solutions to communicate, share, deliver, and receive broadcast-quality video between the applications running on the VPX platform.
