Chyron Delivers High Speed Graphics For 2007 Nascar On TNT Summer Series


Chyron Corporation (OTC BB: CYRO) has today announced that Turner Sports, a division of Turner Broadcasting System and Time Warner, has upgraded 13 of its HyperX, high-performance graphics and playout systems to HD and Lyric PRO advanced creation software for its 2007 NASCAR on TNT Summer Series.

Eight of the systems are based in TNT’s Network Operations Group and five provide sophisticated graphics from Turner Studios. A sixth HyperX HD/SD switchable system for Studios was purchased in May. The HyperXs will provide sophisticated graphics for the six NASCAR Nextel Cup Series races on TNT, which are currently being broadcast in HD across the US.

The NASCAR on TNT races, which began on June 10th 2007 with the Pocono 500, will reach a climax on July 15th with the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series from Chicago. Graphics produced by the HyperX systems for each of these races will be an assortment of lower thirds and full screens including trivia questions, player and team comparisons, game summaries, historical stats, leader boards, scoreboards and promos.

“We chose Chyron because the company provides the best system to meet all of our requirements and we have a long and successful relationship. The HyperX maintains the fast editing functionality of a standard character generator with the added features of a full 3D rendering computer,” commented Tom Sahara, senior director of IT and Remote Services, Turner Sports.

Kevin Prince, Chyron’s Chief Operating Officer added, “We are delighted that TNT has upgraded the HyperX for this fast paced, adrenalin fuelled season of NASCAR. This further highlights the system’s strengths in meeting challenging requirements in demanding, live sports entertainments.”
