iRB 1.1 Installation Instructions
Section 1. Introduction
1.1. What is Chyron iRB?
iRB is Chyron’s Intelligent Rundown Builder. iRB is an option for Chyron’s CAMIO server and provides
the same type of drag-and-drop workflow as is found exclusively in MOS (Media Object Server) -based
Newsroom Computer Systems such as Avid iNews or AP’s ENPS. iRB brings the same MOS workflow to
anyone with a PC and Internet Explorer on your facility’s LAN.
1.2. What is required to use iRB?
In order to use iRB, the following components must be installed:
On the CAMIO server:
On the User PC Workstation:
 LUCI ActiveX Client (or higher)
 CAMIO (or higher) software
 Internet Explorer 7.0 (or higher)
 iRB Software Option
 Microsoft Silverlight 3.0 (or higher)
 Lyric Templates for LUCI
 .NET Framework 3.5
 Microsoft SQL Server
 Internet Information Services (IIS)
1.3. What is not required to use iRB?
Since iRB does not work through the newsroom system, no iNews MOS gateway is required for iRB to
function. Even though the CAMIO workflow may be utilized in the newsroom, iRB functions as its own
MOS Gateway, even when CAMIO is supporting both Newsroom and iRB workflows simultaneously. The
iNews MOS Gateway is required only for Rundowns created inside of iNews Newsroom systems.
1.4. Is the iRB option licensed per Seat or User?
Chyron does not charge per Seat or User to install or use the LUCI ActiveX client. The license agreement
allows installation of the LUCI ActiveX client on every computer in your facility. iRB requires the
Silverlight plugin, which is distributed free of charge by Microsoft.
1.5. Can CAMIO support a Newsroom System and iRB at the same facility?
iRB supports both types of workflow running simultaneously. Television stations and production
facilities are busy sites, constantly engaged in a wide range of production tasks. Chyron recognizes that
some facilities do not already have a Newsroom Computer System in place. The goal of iRB is to bring
the drag-and-drop workflow benefits of MOS to all areas of your facility, providing a streamlined,
efficient workflow experience similar to that of a Newsroom Computer System.\

Section 2. iRB Option Installation
You may wish to refer to Section 3 for more information on iRB’s requirement of ASP.NET and IIS. The
configuration settings in Section 3 are not visible until the software is installed.
2.1. Software Package Contents
iRB is packaged in a single self-extracting executable comprised of the following files:
2.2. Software Installation Instructions
1. Locate the iRB installer and double-click it to start the iRB installation. This opens the dialog for
extracting the installer package files to a local destination. Once a destination file has been
selected, click on the Install button. In addition to extracting the setup.exe and iRB.msi files, it
will launch the setup.exe and next begin the installation wizard.

2. The welcome page appears. Click Next to proceed.
3. The second page of the installation wizard requests configuration of iRB for IIS, which will host
the iRB Silverlight application and web services. Select the IIS website and specify the virtual
directory to which iRB should be installed. The web site and virtual directory selected will dictate
the address of the hosted iRB application. For example, if the default IIS web site is hosted on
port ‘80’ in the virtual directory ‘Irb’, then iRB will be reachable at http://localhost:80/Irb. Click
Next to continue.

4. The third page of the installation wizard requests configuration of the endpoint address of the
iRB Web Service, allowing iRB’s Silverlight client to communicate with the iRB server. You must
specify an address (either IP or hostname) that is accessible to remote clients in order for the
iRB client to work properly on machines other than the one on which iRB has been installed.
Click Next to continue.
5. The installation wizard next requests configuration of the iRB database properties which the iRB
server will use to store and fetch persistent Rundown data. In most deployments, the iRB server
and database will reside on the same machine. In such cases, the default value of the Database
Host field can remain ‘localhost’. The Database Name field is, by default, ‘Irb’. Unless your
facility has a conflicting database bearing this name, this value need not be changed. Click the
‘Next to continue.

6. The installation wizard next requests host information for the CAMIO server which will be used
by iRB for thumbnail retrieval and publication of rundowns. In most deployments, iRB will reside
on a CAMIO server, so this value can remain ‘localhost’. If this isn’t the case, specify the IP
address or hostname of the remote CAMIO server. Click ‘Next to continue.
7. The next page of the installation wizard is the last before installation takes place. To begin
installation, click ‘Next.

2.3. Updating from a prior version of iRB to the current version
Use the Windows Add/Remove Programs Control Panel to remove the existing version of iRB.
Follow the install instructions shown in Section 2.2 to install the new version of iRB. During installation
of the new version of iRB, the installation wizard will detect a database name conflict; the installation
wizard will prompt the user to Use Existing Database or Overwrite Database. Choosing to Use Existing
Database will upgrade the database to its most recent revision. Overwriting the database will destroy all
existing data and build a new database from scratch.

Section 3. Additional Installation Notes
3.1. .NET Framework 3.5
The .NET Framework 3.5 and IIS are required for iRB running on the CAMIO server. Launching iRB’s
setup.exe file will prompt for installation of both these programs if they are not already present on your
machine. Once these requirements are satisfied, the installation of iRB will commence. See Chyron
document 2A02326 for information on IIS and CAMIO.
ASP.NET is also required by iRB. ASP.NET is automatically registered with IIS upon installation of iRB.
As directed in Microsoft’s TechNet knowledge base, ASP.NET must be enabled, following installation of
IIS. To enable ASP.NET by using IIS Manager
1. In IIS Manager, expand the local computer, and then click Web Service Extensions.
2. In the details pane, click ASP.NET, and then click Allow.
If your applications require ISAPI, CGI, ASP, WebDAV, or other extensions to operate, you will need to
enable those extensions as well.
These instructions and more information on ASP.NET are available in Microsoft’s TechNet knowledge
base, at .
3.3. MSDE and Mixed-Mode Authentication
To change MSDE to mixed mode authentication after iRB installation requires editing the registry. For
more information on MSDE security and authentication, see the Microsoft Help and Support page at
Chyron Document 2A12331 Revision 0
CAMIO iRB Option User Guide
3.3.1. Default Login Mode
By default, the value of the LoginMode Windows registry subkey is set to 1 for Windows Authentication.
To turn on Mixed Mode authentication after you install MSDE, you must change this value to 2. The
location of the LoginMode subkey depends on whether you installed MSDE as the default MSDE
instance or as a named instance.
If you installed MSDE as the default instance, the LoginMode subkey is located in the following
registry subkey:
If you installed MSDE as a named instance, the LoginMode subkey is located in the following registry
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance Name \MSSQLServer\LoginMode
3.3.2. Modifying the Default Login Mode
As with any changes to your system’s Registry, this process must be carried out cautiously. Follow these
steps exactly. To change the value of LoginMode to 2, follow these steps:
In Control Panel, open Services.
Stop MSSQLSERVER and all other related services (such as SQLSERVERAgent).
On the Start menu, click Run, type regedt32, and click OK to start Registry Editor.
Locate either of the following subkeys. Use the first if you have installed MSDE as the
default MSDE instance. Use the second if you have installed MSDE as a named instance.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Instance
In the right pane, double-click the LoginMode subkey.
In the DWORD Editor dialog box, set the value of this subkey to 2, verify that the Hex option
is selected, and then click OK.
Restart the MSSQLSERVER service and the SQLSERVERAgent service for this change to take

Section 4. Licensing your iRB Software
Following the iRB installation seen in the preceding sections, the software must be licensed for use. In
most situations, this will involve reprogramming the dongle security device that is physically present
inside your CAMIO server. The process is similar to licensing new Lyric options.
Log into the CAMIO SERVER.
Locate the SafeNet folder in the directory where your CAMIO server’s current version of
Lyric is installed. (For example, “C:\Program Files\Chyron\Lyric 7.1\SafeNet”.)

button or the Save Locking Code to a File
save your Locking Code text in an e-mailable form.
Copy to Clipboard allows the locking code text string to be pasted into Windows
Notepad or directly into an email.
Save locking code to a file creates a *.loc file, which the user will name, retaining the
.loc extension. This file may be emailed as an attachment when needed. (Note that .loc
files may be opened in word processing applications if need be. Also take note that the
Locking Code should be saved locally. Saving the .loc file to a network location may
cause the Field Activation Utility to freeze.)
Contact Chyron Customer Service by phone at (631) 845-2132. You will be asked to e-mail
your locking code to your Customer Service representative.
Your Customer Service representative will supply you with a new license code by e-mail or
phone. If by e-mail, the license code you receive will be in the form of a License Code File
with the extension .lic. Save the e-mailed file to a convenient location.
Use the Load License code from a file
