U.K. Graphics Company MOOV Attends Royal Wedding, Brings Chyron’s HyperX3
Chyron announced that MOOV, the graphics company of choice for leading broadcasters including BBC, ESPN, RTÉ, ITV, Sky Italia, and Channel 4, has used 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 supplied both studio graphics and graphics for the wedding service on April 29.
“We rely on Chyron’s HyperX3 for many of the U.K.’s highest profile live sports and entertainment events, and the power and flexibility of the single-box system make it a good fit for our work on the royal wedding as well,” said Duncan Foot, co-founder of MOOV. “Incorporating premade graphics from the BBC into the HyperX3 and Lyric graphics software is quite simple, and the system’s template-based approach to live graphics playout will make it easy to enrich the broadcast with rich visuals and timely details.”
The 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 used 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.
