Chryron’s Lyric PRO Version 7.1 broadcast graphics package is now shipping with enhanced international language support in the form of a robust, 3D-rich text renderer, the company said.
The advanced text renderer enables vector display of virtually any font set, including Unicode, complex scripting, external IME and right-to-left input mode specially developed for Arabic languages. Advanced features also include instant data binding to an intelligent interface and associated database link.
Additional Lyric PRO features include a continuous graphics renderer, the ability to work with multiple timelines and animations while maintaining multi-scene compositing on output, plus 3D rolls and crawls with border and edge effects.
“Lyric PRO and its predecessors have been the benchmark of broadcast graphics sophistication for many years, but these enhanced capabilities, particularly for international languages, now make Lyric PRO a truly universal application of direct benefit to broadcasters worldwide,” said Chyron Chief Operating Officer Kevin Prince.
Chyron will demonstrate the enhancements at IBC 2009, Sept. 10-15 in Amsterdam.
