Melville, NY, November 4, 2008: Chyron (NASDAQ: CHYR) has today announced that NEP, an international provider of outsourced teleproduction services critical to the delivery of live sports and entertainment events, has installed 11 Chyron HD/SD-switchable HyperX2 systems for use in the delivery of sports production and entertainment shows.


The HyperX2 systems with Lyric PRO advanced creation and playout will enable many of NEP’s remote television broadcast facilities to simultaneously manipulate dozens of 3D layers of text, logos textures and movie objects, all in real-time.

George Hoover, chief technology officer, NEP Broadcasting, said, “HyperX2’s ability to provide multiple 3D layers is what our clients are demanding, and from an ownership perspective the ability to switch between SD and HD is a strong plus. HyperX2 fits the bill perfectly in both regards and gives us a standard platform across multiple clients.

“NEP has a large number of Chyron graphic systems that have served us well. Because so many of the world’s broadcast networks and production companies rely on us to provide advanced facilities, we wanted a cost-effective, future-proof upgrade path and, again, HyperX2 is just the ticket.”

Kevin Prince, Chyron’s chief operating officer added, “HyperX2 continues to prove itself as the world’s premier HD/SD graphics creation and playout engine. NEP is renowned for its dedication to supporting its clients’ telecasts of major events and programs with the latest technology and HyperX2 is a key part of that commitment.”
