Chyron has released the Prime Live Platform, a dynamic, scalable, full-featured production engine that bridges legacy workflows with the future of live content creation and distribution.


V4 of Chyron’s Prime platform introduces Prime Switcher

As Version 4 of Chyron’s Prime platform, the Prime Live Platform features the graphics, clips, and branding capabilities of earlier Prime releases, as well as Prime Switcher, a new software-based 2-M/E switcher with a multichannel audio mixer.

“With a comprehensive, specialised software suite that enhances production value and simplifies workflows, Chyron Prime has evolved into a uniquely robust and versatile platform,” said Ariel Garcia, CEO at Chyron. “The newest addition to the platform, Prime Switcher, is ideal for generating a professional-grade output for smaller broadcast productions, OTT delivery, direct streaming to social platforms, or disaster recovery while minimising cost, complexity and reliance on fixed physical resources.”

Designed to meet the needs of hybrid production environments, the Prime Live Platform is environment-agnostic and deployable on off-the-shelf or custom hardware, on a virtualised machine, or entirely in the cloud. Able to handle a wide variety of inputs and outputs (SDI, NDI, H264 streams) and formats (SD, HD, 4K, UHD, HDR), the switcher allows users to take virtually any source from anywhere and mix it into a live programme, with remote control and monitoring capabilities providing continuous visibility into those video sources.

The Prime Live Platform also features enhanced Prime CG design and playout capabilities, including robust Adobe After Effects import.
