Famous Parisian stadium selects Chyron for upgrade of sports production facility

The Palais Omnisports de Paris Bercy (POPB), a famous covered sports and entertainment stadium in Paris, has installed a Chyron Duet LEX as part of a major upgrade to its master control room.
Based on the eastern side of the city, POPB is a local landmark that plays host to a number of concerts and different sports 110 days of the year. Chyron's Duet LEX will provide the stadium's production company, TV Bercy, with outstanding graphics and real-time animation for its live and recorded footage of boxing, ice-skating, super-cross and shortly, basketball.
Jean-Louis Machu of TV Bercy said: "As part of this upgrade to our sports facility, Chyron's Duet LEX allows us to provide the highest quality of material for our clients."
