Lyric Pro adds POWER to Sony MVS Producton Switchers Character and graphics solution now available for Sony switchers

In today's demanding live production applications it is critical for every production switcher to have a powerful character generator as well as connection to a clip server in order to provide a comprehensive production solution. Sony is pleased to announce we have collaborated with ChyronHego® and Abekas® in order to provide enhanced functionalities for the MVS-3000A and MVS-6530 Video Production Switchers.

ChyronHego has earned a reputation for successfully integrating with complimentary live production solutions that provide customers ease-of-use, enhanced production value and a great return on investment. Lyric Pro™ for MVS, a HD/SD 2D and 3D character and graphics generator, combines the strong industry reputation of Sony and ChyronHego to provide a truly powerful solution for today's demanding live production applications.

The Abekas® Tria™ Digital Video Clip Server is specifically designed to be a switcher's companion and is among the most advanced, feature-rich clip server functionality on the market today. This server hits the market sweet spot with its unique "three-channel" playback architecture, which features a dedicated "VKA" (video+key+audio) output channel, with two additional video+audio output channels. For those customers with the need for only one VKA channel and/or on a very limited budget, Tria also comes in a "one-channel" model for about half the price of the "three-channel" Tria model. And beyond other clip servers on the market, both Tria models provide a digital video input for ingesting base-band video content, as well as a built-in Media File Import tool which supports a much wider array of file codecs and wrappers. For example, Tria can import any QuickTime® media file created with any published codec; if the file can be opened in QuickTime player on your laptop, Tria will import it.

With these options, Sony MVS-3000A and MVS-6530 Video Production Switchers are ideal for any production need.
