Melville, NY, November 11, 2008: Chyron (NASDAQ: CHYR) has today announced that its “XClyps” multi-format production clip server, which features real-time clip playback in single- or dual-channel video and key, has added another level of third-party controllability with “AirBoss” by Florical Systems. The AirBoss system schedules functions that XClyps performs - such as graphic insertions - to occur at specific times rather than requiring manual control.


With XClyps, video and audio can be ingested in any format via QuickTime® files, Targa sequences, live video input, or rendering directly with the Video for Windows® codec. Video and key channels can be mixed and matched, with audio later added for maximum effect. The XClyps system is available in an HD/SD-switchable or SD-only configuration.

The ability to combine the power of XClyps with AirBoss automation significantly streamlines workflow requirements. In addition to XClyps’ ability to quickly import and play back video clips under AirBoss’ control, the seamless interface means that users can also automatically generate an “as-run” log that shows exactly when graphic insertions occurred and for how long, a significant bonus for traffic systems.
