Chyron turns to Sports Media for athletics digital signage
Chyron recently appointed Sports Media its preferred partner digital video signage network operator for professional sports organizations, stadiums and arenas. As a preferred partner, Sports Media will provide end-to-end digital video signage network services including installation, infrastructure management, content creation and distribution, field service, content management, advertising sales, and traffic and billing services to sports venues nationwide.
Sports Media will deploy networks based on Chyron's ChyTV line of dynamic digital video signage network appliances. These appliances allow the video displays in sports venues to squeeze back the video of the sporting event, thus creating space for local advertising text, graphics, animation and sound.
ChyTV's graphic and text information coupled with programmable audio clips may be displayed on a single TV screen or broadcast throughout an entire sports facility. Easy and intuitive content creation, scheduling, distribution and display of graphic content to flat-panel and TV monitors is possible with the system's dynamic display controller. Users can opt to show either full-screen images or video graphics and text combined with an external video feed. Video regions can be resized and positioned from page to page with smooth dynamic transitions, while dynamic graphic and text regions can be assigned to surround or overlay the video window. Audio WAV files can also be integrated seamlessly for sound clips and audio alerts.
