Baseball’s Giants use Chyron at AT&T Park

Visitors to AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants, are now being treated to a wide variety of graphics displayed on the large video screens inside the ballpark courtesy of Chyron systems.

Chyron’s HyperX was used during every home baseball game, as well as the 2007 MLB All-Star Game and for special events, to drive sophisticated lower-thirds for both 16 x 9 and 29 x 9, full-page and side graphics for the stadium’s large-format HD video screen. The HyperX system is installed in the scoreboard control room. Chyron’s partner Diversified Systems installed the system.

Acoustic Dimensions of Addison, TX, served as consultants on the project.
