Melville, NY, December 11, 2008: Chyron (NASDAQ: CHYR) has today announced that TVA, the French-language broadcaster in Montréal, has installed an additional three of Chyron’s HD/SD-switchable HyperX² graphics systems to complement an existing trio that are used to generate leading-edge HD graphics for TVA’s range of entertainment, information and public affairs programming, plus commercial production and home shopping operations that reach millions of Canadian viewers.


TVA Director of Engineering Richard Baril said, “Our longstanding relationship with Chyron is based on functionality and reliability, but most of all the high quality graphics for which the company is so highly regarded. HyperX² is a solid investment in delivering the best possible levels of innovation and quality to our viewers.”

HyperX² is Chyron’s top-of-the-line on-air graphics system that combines the award-winning Lyric® PRO 2D/3D content creation software with a video graphics processor that delivers more than twice the performance of its predecessor.

In addition, Chyron CAMIO cluster - a fully redundant pair of CAMIO servers which removes the single points of failure from mission-critical news graphics operations – now provides an easy-to-use interface to create, preview and publish highly sophisticated graphics without fear of loss or degradation. Coupled with Chyron’s iSQ, a centralized remote monitoring and playout application, TVA can control independent output channels across multiple devices of MOS-generated playlists.

Kevin Prince, Chyron’s Chief Operating Officer added, “TVA operates the largest French language broadcast network in North America, and their enthusiasm for HyperX² is further evidence of the power of this new technology and the benefits it offers to a wide range of programming for broadcasters worldwide.”
