Sky Sports News to Invest In Chyron Installation

Chyron Corporation has announced that Sky Sports News is investing in eight Chyron HyperX2 HD/SD switchable graphics platforms with Lyric PRO, and a CAMIO suite of Newsroom Graphics software for integration with Avid iNews for its daily, eighteen hour sport news channel.
This major installation makes Chyron, Sky Sports News’ single prime supplier for its live studio graphics. The systems will go on air later this month for the beginning of the 2007 Football Season. 

As well as providing the broadest spectrum of studio graphics for this fast paced, live programming network, the HyperX2 will enable the channel's trademark 'L' shape look that combines results, news stories, statistics, tables and breaking news, from a variety of Data sources.
The network will also use Chyron for the majority of its ‘Soccer Saturday’ programming. 

As part of the project, Chyron’s UK office provided extensive training and design resources to assist Sky in migrating to the new platforms, enabling the rapid introduction of new design features such as 3D, which were unavailable with the previous platforms. 

Launched at NAB2007, the HyperX2 is the new crown jewel in Chyron’s graphics system line, and combined with the Lyric PRO creation and playback software, the system provides Sky Sports News operators with access to the widest range of live broadcast graphics tools for tasks ranging from template creation and fulfillment through to advanced 3D animation.
This integrated solution and the system’s exceptional processing power will provide immediate improvement to the workflow of creation and playback, and potential for future expansion. Combined with CAMIO for MOS newsroom graphics and iSQ to simplify playlist operations, Sky News is adopting the most advanced Newsroom Graphics Solution available.

“After meeting with all of the major graphics suppliers, we selected Chyron as the best-of-breed solution to provide an integrated, streamlined workflow. The HyperX2 platform has come of age and is mature enough to be deployed in a front-line Sports news environment,” commented Mark Crawford, Head of Broadcast Computing, BSkyB.
Crawford added: “We hope to migrate the remaining Soccer Saturday systems to Chyron during the new season, giving us a complete Chyron solution.”
