Chyron will launch its web-based GFX tool Axis in the UK in July.

The GFX firm said it was in discussions with networks in the UK, the Middle East and Africa.

Vice president for EMEA sales Paul Glasgow said: “Installing a cloud-based service decouples people - if there is a breaking news story in one area, a journalist can use the simplified, template-driven system to create a map or GFX and put it on air in minutes.”
