Moov snaps up 23 ChyronHego Prime graphics systems for UHD and HDR work
Live broadcast graphics company Moov has bought 23 ChyronHego Prime graphics systems that will be used to support its sports TV customers, including BT Sport, as they continue to expand their UHD and HDR workflows.
Discussing the purchase, Laurie Beaumont, head of graphics at Moov, said the deal will help the London-based company to “stay ahead of the game and the technology curve” with “tools that can help us deliver highly complex graphics with a fast turnaround.”
He added: “We’ve enjoyed a close partnership with ChyronHego for well over a decade, so we knew Prime would give us the flexibility, power, and ease of deployment we need to support our clients as they continue to expand their UHD and HDR workflows.”
Moov has been working with BT Sport since 2013. The broadcaster’s UHD service uses ChyronHego’s LyricX for graphics creation and playout.
In August of this year, BT Sport announced BT Sport Ultimate, offering pictures in UHD, HDR and sound in Dolby Atmos
ChyronHego’s Prime platform can be used for character generation, production clip playing, or touchscreen and video wall graphics. It maintains an end-to-end HDR workflow from canvas design to output, according to the company, and includes built-in SDR and HDR cross-conversion.
Matt Bryan, territory sales director at ChyronHego, added: “Our shared passion for graphics excellence has enabled Moov to continue deploying stunning graphics to viewers around the world in UHD, 3D, and HDR, and this significant new investment in Prime demonstrates Moov’s commitment to delivering the rich, high-resolution HDR images that give productions a competitive edge.”
