LONDON, July 12, 2011
Chyron today announced that seven Chyron HyperX³ on-air graphics systems were used for live coverage of the Barclays Scottish Open, July 7-10, at the Castle Stuart Golf Links in Inverness, Scotland. Throughout the golf tournament, MOOV Limited, provider of data-driven graphics for live sports and entertainment broadcasts, used two HyperX³ systems to provide presentation graphics for the BBC’s domestic feed. MST SYSTEMS Ltd, a specialist in graphics and scoring for golf tournaments, used another five HyperX³ systems for live scoring graphics and playout of custom graphics packages for the world feed and Sky Sports’ feed.
“Golf coverage is extraordinarily demanding in that the number and variety of graphics is enormous, as is the volume of live data driving those graphics,” said Duncan Foot, managing director at MOOV Limited. “Chyron’s HyperX³ systems provide the power required for visually striking 3D graphics, as well as the flexibility to interface with the software systems providing real-time data from around the course.” MOOV Limited has become the graphics company of choice for leading broadcasters including BBC, ESPN, AI Jazeera, RTE, ITV, Sky Italia, and Channel 4. MST SYSTEMS has provided graphics and scoring facilities at six Ryder Cups, 11 Open Championships, and more than 1,000 other golf tournaments for the European Tour, the Asian Tour, One Asia tour, China Tour, and the LPGA. In delivering data-rich graphics for complex live sports, both MOOV Limited and MST SYSTEMS have come to rely on Chyron’s HyperX³ on-air graphics system.
For the Scottish Open, MOOV Limited created the BBC graphics package and MST SYSTEMS turned those graphics into templates that could be populated with data ranging from scores, statistics, and standings and then taken to air with Chyron systems. MOOV Limited also used the Chyron HyperX³ systems to air headline sequences in which live video from a critical drive, putt, or other stroke were shown with a full-screen graphic in real time without requiring rendering.
“Real-time 3D graphics have become a significant element of our service offering, and Chyron systems provide a stable, well-supported playout platform for these graphics,” said Stuart Paterson-Browne, software development manager at MST SYSTEMS. “Because Chyron systems are so well known across the industry, the HyperX³ and its Lyric software give us the flexibility to use experienced freelance operators and designers to create graphics, thereby freeing up internal developers to concentrate on expanding the services we offer our clients.”
“Our HyperX³ on-air graphics systems give innovative companies such as MOOV and MST SYSTEMS the combination of power and interoperability they need to bring exceptionally rich graphics, populated with dynamic live data, to golf broadcasts,” said Chyron’s Vice President of EMEA Sales, Paul Glasgow. “Telecasts from the Scottish Open this year demonstrated very clearly how MOOV and MST SYSTEMS’s work with leading networks is raising the bar for live event coverage, and it’s exciting that Chyron systems are central to this effort.”
