ChyronHego has announced that French broadcaster Canal+ and Norwegian broadcaster Viasat have installed the ChyronHego GS2 Multi-Touch platform, marking the first implementation of ChyronHego's touchscreen solution in each respective geographic market.

The technology offers optimal graphics rendering performance and touchscreen responsiveness, allowing the staff of Canal+ and Viasat Norway to create compelling interactive productions.

The GS2 Multi-Touch platform is most dedicated to be used in sports and news broadcasting. It is compatible with all major touchscreen display technologies and integrates with many third-party video servers, advanced 3D telestration systems, data providers, social media outlets and 3D modelling renderers.

Canal+ France has employed ChyronHego's touchscreen technology during its pre- and post-match magazine shows for its Ligue 1 French National Football coverage.

This project ― through a partnership with live sports data company, Opta ― allows Canal+ to incorporate advanced interactive sports statistics into touchscreen broadcasts.

In a deal that spans two seasons, Viasat Norway is using ChyronHego's solution on its magazine show for its Champions League football coverage.

The touchscreen technology integrates with league data provided by Infostrada in addition to controlling Viasat Norway's EVS servers.
