Chyron Lays Up Graphics, Clip Server for Trail Blazers
The Rose Garden arena in Portland, Ore., home to the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers, has installed Chyron’s flagship HD/SD-switchable HyperX² graphics system and XClyps multiformat production clip server. The systems were installed by Diversified Systems Inc.

Installed to commence with the start of the NBA basketball season in October this year, the Rose Garden is using the systems to provide HD graphics for the Blazers’ new in-house 1080i big-screen display during games.

The Chyron systems are linked to the NBA DTVI interface for sophisticated player stats, and the HyperX² graphics engine can simultaneously manipulate dozens of 3D layers of text, logos textures and movie objects, all in real-time. Chyron’s 3D graphics on the Rose Garden big screen range from happy birthday messages to sponsorship logos.

“The addition of these systems allows us to add an HD workflow to our existing standard definition productions,” said Mike Janes, director of engineering for Blazers Broadcasting. “We already use Chyron Lyric software in mobile trucks on the road for both SD and HD shows, having our own system in house has allowed us to pre-produce and test graphics in HD and SD.”
