DataBridge from BTi Brings Live News and Information to Chyron DynaCrawl

FRANKLIN, Tenn., Feb. 6 -- Business Technology, Inc. (BTi), a leading provider of automated broadcast graphics applications, today announced the immediate availability of DataBridge(TM) for the Chyron DynaCrawl broadcast graphics systems. DataBridge for DynaCrawl provides broadcasters with an easy-to-use, web-based, point-and-click service that delivers a reliable stream of operator-selected real-time news and information formatted specifically for standard definition (SD), high definition (HD) and HD/SD switchable DynaCrawl system configurations.

Chyron's Chief Operating Officer Kevin Prince said, "DataBridge for DynaCrawl, from BTi, is an ideal complement to the DynaCrawl toolkit, providing broadcasters with a streamlined solution for adding news and information crawls to their channels. Its seamless interface between the content and the graphic makes Chyron DynaCrawl -- already the fastest way to create data displays for broadcast -- even easier."

The DataBridge for DynaCrawl uses the DataBridge service from BTi to give broadcasters access to a deep menu of information feeds from top data providers, including international, national and local news, sports, weather, entertainment news and more. A simple, secure web user interface, accessible from anywhere, makes adding or changing a data stream as easy as selecting it from the menu. Changes occur instantly, giving broadcasters the flexibility to meet any information delivery requirement. A flat subscription fee provides complete, continuous access to the entire menu of information sources.

The DataBridge from BTi is a fully managed data service that insulates broadcasters from typical data provider pitfalls such as changing news wire data codes by continuously updating itself in the background. BTi continuously monitors the entire service from its own data center to the broadcaster's local server, ensuring maximum "up-time." Built-in monitoring and robust redundancy strategy ensures seamless, uninterrupted data flow.

Once the broadcaster has selected feeds, DataBridge for DynaCrawl automatically creates capture files designed specifically for Chyron's DynaCrawl. The user simply drags and drops those files in the DynaCrawl interface to design the crawls and tickers for display.

Jay Wasack, president of BTi said, "The combination of Chyron DynaCrawl and DataBridge from BTi provides broadcasters in any sized market with the shortest path between their plans for enhancing their information graphics and actually delivering them on air. DataBridge for DynaCrawl is yet another opportunity for BTi to work with our customers to leverage their choice of CG technology."

DataBridge for DynaCrawl is available directly from BTi.
