A new interface for news production and a “Dropbox style” file distribution tool have been added to the latest version of ChyronHego’s Camio graphic asset management server.


The HubDrive file distribution tool is a folder for synchronising and sharing content automatically with playout devices.

The news interface is called LUCI5. It is an HTML5 web browser that allows news producers to browse, create and order images and video assets from Camio without leaving the newsroom computer systems (NRCS).

ChyronHego chief technology officer Sören Kjellin said: “With LUCI5’s workflow connecting the newsroom to the art department and the control room, users can focus on writing the news and breaking it first. HubDrive makes it easier to manage and distribute graphics assets across a network of playout devices.”

LUCI5 is based on the Media Object Server (MOS) protocol and is compatible with most modern NRCSs, the company said. Legacy NCRSs are supported via an ActiveX container.

HubDrive works with various ChyronHego products including Prime, Hybrid, Live Compositor and the weather news system Metcast.
