NBC Olympics Using ChyronHego for Graphics at 2018 Olympic Winter Games

ChyronHego’s Lyric Graphics, Live Compositor, and PRIME Clips tools are being use to create graphics for NBC’s coverage of 2018 Olympic games.

NBC Olympics will use 30 Lyric systems to cover the Winter Games, with about half deployed at its headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut, and the remaining used at NBC Olympics' production facility at the International Broadcast Center in PyeongChang. In addition, multiple ChyronHego Live Compositor systems will be used for producing additional programming and digital content. "We are looking forward to using the ChyronHego Mosaic XL2, the ChyronHego Mosaic Duo with Lyric PRO, and the ChyronHego PRIME Clips units in PyeongChang this coming February," said Philip Paully, Director Graphics Engineering & Operations, NBC Olympics. "With improved software, video output cards and an overall improvement in operating system and storage, we look forward to increased speed and reliability."
