Chyron... A MOOV'ing Experience (SatBroadcasting™)

[SatNews] Chyron's HyperX3 will be used in producing on-air graphics for the Royal Weddling...

Chyron announced that MOOV will be using two Chyron HyperX3 on-air graphics systems to provide graphics for the BBC's live coverage of the royal wedding of Prince William of Wales and Catherine "Kate" Middleton. MOOV installed one HyperX3 system in a studio at the media village outside Buckingham Palace and a second at a temporary studio adjacent to Westminster Abbey, and together the Chyron systems will supply both studio graphics and graphics for the wedding service on April 29th. Ideal for live sports channels, news stations, and outside broadcasts, the extremely fast, powerful, and easy-to-use HyperX3 system features seamless creation-to-playout capability, real-time 2D/3D animation, built-in stereoscopic-ready 3D, and a host of hardware and software features. The turnkey on-air graphics system from Chyron is scalable to two independent channels and incorporates the award-winning Lyric® PRO 8 graphics creation and playback software. With the product's "scriptless" conditional intelligent transitions, Lyric PRO 8 improves the on-air look with ease and accuracy. During the royal wedding, MOOV will use the Chyron systems to enhance live video with specially branded graphics providing details about people and places and to provide ongoing updates through informational tickers and crawls. In addition, MOOV will be showing animated maps to illustrate the route Kate will take on her way to Westminster Abbey and will broadcast messages, photos, and videos from viewer emails, texts, and Twitter posts.
