NBC Selects Chyron As Real-Time Graphics Authoring, Video Playout Provider For Tokyo Olympics

Chyron to enable NBC Olympics to employ sophisticated studio wall and on-air graphics during its coverage of the Tokyo Olympics.

Chryon is supporting NBC Olympics’ remote production workflow with Lyric X, a 4K-ready solution for graphics creation and playout. Lyric systems will be used at NBC Sports’ International Broadcast Center in Stamford, Conn., to enable an agile workflow for adapting graphics and getting them to air quickly. Additional Lyric systems will be deployed in a dedicated control room in Tokyo to support flexible graphics creation and playout for a select group of events.

Deployed in Tokyo for in-studio use, Chyron’s PRIME Video Walls solution will enable NBC Olympics to deliver striking visual presentations on various individual displays, or across a monitor wall. A single PRIME system will feed high resolution graphics and video content to various screens, regardless of size or aspect ratio. Powerful data-binding to scene elements will simplify data visualization.

“We are looking forward to continuing our partnership with Chyron for our coverage of the Tokyo Olympics,” said Darryl Jefferson, VP Post Production & Digital Workflow, NBC Sports & Olympics. “The tools that Chyron delivers for both real-time graphics presentation and the flexibility for video wall presentation allows our creative teams to really make our studio presentations and live coverage stand out. Our integrated data feeds also help our presentation tell the story and give context for the viewers at home.”
