Ventuz is known for 3D real-time software, which is used predominantly for high-end presentations, interactive applications, and on-air graphics.

The partnership between Chyron and Ventuz will build on the proven, scalable, and widely deployed Chyron broadcast infrastructure that already is 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.
