Scientific Atlanta HD MPEG-2 encoders have been selected by the EBU to deliver HD programming of sports events to a variety of service providers and broadcasters across Europe.
Continuing its commitment to the HD transition, AMP France selected Chyron's flagship graphics system, the Duet HyperX, to provide high-quality graphics for a number of events including sports and opera. The Duet HyperX features up to two software-switchable HD/SD channels, either one of which may integrate a compressed HD/SD clip player.
Gilles Sall_, CEO, AMP France, commented: "At AMP France we wanted a graphics product that is as flexible and powerful as our HD/SD OB truck, we found both those qualities in the Chyron Duet HyperX. Chyron was our first choice because its products are highly adaptable for the sports arena, live shows, music concerts and opera."
David Ward, VP and general manager, Chyron EAME added: "2006 is a key year for European broadcasters who are making the jump to HD transmission. AMP France has been instrumental in moving the HD transition forward."
This announcement further strengthens Chyron's dedication to the French market following the opening of the company's French office in Paris. Chyron will soon be announcing key personnel at Chyron France as well as further major sales in the region.
