UK broadcast graphics specialist MOOV will use Chyron’s graphics software as the sole provider for all presentation graphics and design for BBC Sport during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
While based at the BBC’s Television Centre during the games, MOOV will use the creative power of Chyron’s Lyric PRO on the HyperX platforms to provide sophisticated, one-of-a-kind graphics in HD. MOOV will also have a designer onsite to help create programme openings, ‘coming ups’ and ‘headlines’ on the fly.
MOOV Managing Director, Duncan Foot, said: “During the Olympics there will be a huge number of hours of live and highlights programming on network television, online, and BBC Interactive via the Red Button. We will also be writing a custom interface to help manage results data and will be automating the creation of some graphics for use in edit suites at Television Centre.
“Those multiple requirements demanded the ultimate in graphic creation and deployment and for us, Chyron was the only choice when looking for a system to provide the quality, flexibility and reliability that we need to produce such a high-profile graphics package.”
Chyron COO, Kevin Prince, said: “MOOV is highly respected and has established itself as the broadcast design service of choice for some of the world’s leading broadcasters. This project is once again testament to the power of the superior offerings by Chyron.”
