ChyronHego Selects Matrox DSX Developer Products as Heart of Mosaic Broadcast Graphics System

AMSTERDAM – Sept. 12, 2013 — Matrox® Video today announced that ChyronHego®, the leader in broadcast graphics creation, playout and real-time data visualization, has chosen the Matrox DSX™ Developer Products as the multi-channel I/O hardware engine for its Mosaic™ graphics creation and playout system for live and automated workflows.

Mosaic is a tightly integrated family of turnkey platforms which scale to meet the graphics production needs, technical requirements and budgets of newsrooms, studios, sports broadcasting facilities and corporate video environments.

The Matrox DSX Developer Products are designed to offer broadcast equipment manufacturers optimal performance, flexibility and scalability. Their memory centric, asynchronous architecture provides high-speed transfers of video, audio and graphics data between I/O peripherals, co-processors, the CPU and host memory.

“Mosaic is used 24/7 in some of the world’s most demanding broadcast operations so Matrox’s reputation for stability and reliability was paramount in our choice of I/O hardware for the system,” said Peter Morrone, SVP of Product Engineering at ChyronHego. “In addition, we found the advanced features and flexibility that our customers are looking for such as 3G connectivity, 1080p60 support, a variety of field-upgradeable codecs and low latency using NVIDIA GPUDirect™ technology.”

“As a company, Matrox Video is completely focused on designing and building hardware for the broadcast industry,” said Francesco Scartozzi, director of sales for the Americas at Matrox. “ChyronHego’s innovative use of our latest enabling technologies provides smooth, responsive and cost-effective workflow solutions to their customers.”
