German software developer Ventuz is known for its 3D real-time software, which is used in high-end presentations, interactive applications, and on-air graphics, while Chyron is most famous for its graphics as a service for on-air digital video applications.
Both companies will expand the range of live graphics solutions they can make available to customers as a result of this new partnership.
"This partnership combines the world's best technology for graphics presentation with the industry standard for broadcast graphics technology," said Joachim Sturmes, CEO at Ventuz Technology. "With these solutions, our customers can take interactive data-rich presentations to a level never before seen in the broadcast realm."
Ventuz software is said to create an easy-to-use authoring environment for high-end video, animation, and 2D/3D graphics playback and control in an interactive setting. The software suite is said to be the gold standard of the presentation market, and has been relied on to bring style, sophistication, and innovation to many of the world's prestigious brands.
The partnership between Chyron and Ventuz will build on the proven, scalable, and widely deployed Chyron broadcast infrastructure that is already well-established in the broadcast market, bringing broadcasters an added degree of versatility and creativity in dynamic real-time graphics for live events such as news, elections, sports, and entertainment programming.
"Ventuz is an impressively flexible tool for creating visually stunning interactive in-studio applications," said Michael Wellesley-Wesley, President and CEO at Chyron. "We're very pleased to be working with the company as its software opens up an exciting new range of possibilities for both new and existing Chyron customers around the globe."
