Visually Integrated Display Symbology (VIDS)
DigIt Signage Technologies has been directly involved in developing the VIDS EAS symbology proposed ATSC 3.0 alerting standard. VIDS is an implementation combining emergency warning graphics with alert & warning text to provide an improved way of displaying emergency information, both as alerts – immediate information and advisories – non-immediate information. Display devices such as character generators, media keyers, and similar equipment adopting the VIDS recommended practices will provide enhanced accessibility through improved message presentation. VIDS creates a set of display directives for integrating alert information with a specific iconography as part of the visual presentation. Each event is associated with a specific icon or symbol whose depiction graphically represents the current event and is presented with the alert text to build public awareness of these symbols and not rely wholly on reading or specific languages.
EAS (Emergency Alert System)
Digital Alert Systems and DigIt Signage Technologies have collaborated on VIDS (Visually Integrated Display Symbology) for EAS alert systems. DigIt Signage Technologies HD-EAS (PI Sheet link) character generator is currently shipping with the VIDS methodology of graphics and operation fully incorporated.

Our station needed to upgrade its aging EAS and on-air CG. For the CG part of the upgrade we went with CHYTV and haven’t regretted it for a second. The unit has functioned flawlessly since being installed. The only trouble we experienced with the unit was because we got into the software and misconfigured it, and with a quick phone call the CHYTV team had set it back straight for us. They gave us all the training we needed and have been great to work with. Quick to respond to any emails or questions, and ready to help in any way they can. When it comes to “mission critical” equipment, you want to work with a company that will work with you, and that’s why we are glad to be working with CHYTV.
I love ChyTV, not only are their products great, but their technical support is great too. The Sales Team for ChyTV is top notch. We purchased the ChyTV HD150 and needed help changing our scheduling to fit our needs. The team supporting the products have helped us by providing technical support and information that you would never get with any other company. Our old system has been up since 2012, and we still receive support for it. These guys are the best, and I recommend them to anyone and everyone that needs digital signage. Thank You ChyTV.
Vinny, Just wanted to let you know what is happening on my end as I continue to test out the HD-mini unit. It has been running for 3 weeks straight now looping videos. The unit does not even get hot to the touch. I also recently configured it for its final home in our server room. I setup the HD-mini with a fixed IP # and moved it into our server room across campus. I then tried accessing it with the ChyTV Tools software and it found it from my office with no problems. This is something the XXXXXX software could not do (find the unit across campus vlans). I like that I can control the playlist remotely as well. So far, I am very impressed! I promise to stop comparing the HD-mini with the XXXXXX unit. Your hardware and software seem vastly superior! Curtis
My name is Jason Parks, I'm the station manager for ACCESS16, the local government television station based in Salisbury, NC. We have been broadcasting government content for over 10 years. Recently, I installed ChyTV's HD BB server, and I'm very impressed with my purchase. When searching for a replacement for my previous TV server, price and the ability to output in high definition were at the top of my requirements. I'm excited to offer ACCESS16 in high definition. I am looking forward to implementing all the features that the ChyTV HD BB offers. The HD BB has capabilities that rival servers costing 2 to 3 times as much. SDI input / SDI output, multiple video formats supported and a very knowledgeable technical support staff. I am very happy with my purchase, and would recommend ChyTV's line of products to anyone looking for digital signage / TV broadcast solutions.
The Senate cable television alert system which incorporates both analog and HD-SDI ChyTV units has been very successful and was utilized to notify staff during a shooting incident last year on Capitol Hill. Efforts by DigIt Signage Technologies engineers have been an important factor and a key component of our success. Recent innovations include the development of a web interface, which provides us with a web based platform for activating alerts, and our system was expanded to include alert activations for the House of Representatives. Ongoing improvements, design changes, and upgrades performed by DigIt are also important as our system continues to evolve to meet our needs.
At Central Community College we have been using ChyTV products for close to 10 years now. We currently have four locations where we utilize ChyTV units. On our Columbus Campus we have a ChyTV Plus which we hope to upgrade to a ChyTV HD150 soon. On our Grand Island and Hastings campus locations we have just deployed two ChyTV HD150 units; previously they had been ChyTV Plus units. The upgrade process is still ongoing but so far we are really satisfied with the quality of images the HD150 displays. Our Lexington Learning Center features a ChyTV Plus unit that we remotely manage. With hundreds of miles between campus and learning center locations it’s nice to be able to make graphics at one central location and distribute them electronically over our network. This also saves time when making a common page that will be displayed at multiple locations. One of the biggest things we like about the ChyTV line is that the learning curve isn’t steep. If you already know how to run PowerPoint you have 95% of what you need to know to produce ChyTV Graphics. Using PowerPoint also allows people from different departments to format their own messages, which can speed up the process of adding new pages. The tech support has been super and is really cost effective since it’s free. Any time we’ve had questions or issues the team is quick to respond with the correct answer. Knowing they are a quick phone call away makes trouble shooting easy. When you compare the feature set with the price the ChyTV is hard to beat. We plan to be using a ChyTV product of some kind into the foreseeable future.
The problem was purchasing a reliable, affordable, broadcast quality, digital signage system from a vendor that was willing and able to develop and integrate custom applications to support our specific goals. The solution was ChyTV and the ChyTV team of experienced professionals…and the results were outstanding! As operations manager of Four Village Studio, a community television studio on Long Island, New York, many challenges confronted our recent analog to digital infrastructure conversion. The need to replace and upgrade the “4VS Community Billboard”, our scroll of local events and programming information, was paramount in the decision-making process. Though our requirements were few in number, finding a vendor willing to meet our requests was formidable. First, we needed a cost-effective system that would operate reliably, 24/7, without the need for standby personnel. Secondly, since we were already satisfied with our award-winning on-air look, we needed a system that had enough display flexibility for us to recreate and mimic our proven design. Thirdly, and most challenging, we needed a vendor willing to work with us and a third party (RainWise, Inc.) to develop an interface to display real-time weather telemetry from our rooftop weather station. Needless to say, Vinny Bionolillo, Jim Altemose and the team from ChyTV met all challenges. Our ChyTV digital signage system, along with the custom weather application, has worked flawlessly since installation in 2012. The ChyTV technical team’s willingness to understand, interpret and accommodate our specific goals was well reflected through their extreme professionalism, competence and customer care. Perhaps even more important, a relationship has been forged that gives our organization confidence that the ChyTV team will be there for us, down the road, should the need occur. Thank you ChyTV!
As the VAR who designed and installed the cable communications channel for the Town of Highland Park, Texas, when their aging existing system became unreliable, I was asked to upgrade the system used by various departments within the Town. This system fed audio/video to the Town’s dedicated cable channel and ran basic Bulletin Board type information 24/7. After comparing the existing system upgrades and the new ChyTV system from Chyron, my decision was relatively easy. I chose the ChyTV for a variety of reasons. First, in accordance with the Town’s fiscal responsibility, was price. To deliver the same level of performance, in this case, we saved over $2,000 by purchasing the ChyTV instead of the existing system upgrade. Second, as a long time broadcast television producer/engineer, Chyron was a company with which I was very familiar and had the utmost confidence in both hardware, software and support. I was so pleased with the easy installation and ease of use of the ChyTV system installed for the Town of Highland Park, I purchased a unit for my mobile unit, which we use for in-house feeds at sports venues where we do production, so we can brand the feed for all viewers in the stadium or field house. Due, in no small part I believe, to the design capabilities of Chyron, the output of the ChyTV unit and graphics (where Chyron really has no equal) matches the quality of the various graphics generators that I have installed in my production vehicle and I intend to utilize this ChyTV unit (and perhaps others) as stand-alone downstream keyers.

ChyTV can make your signage and broadcast graphics as professional looking as any seen on the television networks. Broadcast Television is our 25+ year history working for Chyron Corporation who is the Kleenex or Xerox for a television graphic.
With the exception of the LogoIt! product, all of the ChyTV products are stand-alone “appliances” in that there is no mouse, keyboard or monitor. They run Linux under the hood, and when turned on, they boot up and begin playing whatever the current schedule says to. ChyTV Tools is the “project” management interface and yes, it runs on a PC on the network. When content updates are required, you connect ChyTV Tools to the device via network and IP address. You do your updates, and if you’re playing according to a schedule, you can disconnect ChyTV Tools and walk away; it doesn’t require a persistent connection. Or, for Live operation, ChyTV Tools can be used to display particular pages, update text information, etc. We have a number of customers who have successfully run ChyTV Tools on Apple computers using one of the “Windows Emulation” applications such as “Parallels” or “CrossOver”.
Setting the IP is very simple. Out of the box default is DHCP, but by using an included “thumb” drive (i.e. USB), a static IP, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and Nameservers can all be configured by editing a simple text file.
ChyTV products can be used for both Live events or scheduled playout, depending on your needs.
Pages and graphics can be recalled either live manually or cycled through automatically according to a preset schedule.
