WPTV chooses Chyron for HD graphics

WPTV, the NBC-affiliate on the Gold and Treasure Coasts of Florida, has installed two HD/SD-switchable HyperX2 on-air graphics systems as part of its move to HD.

The station, which brands itself on air as NewsChannel 5 HD, has launched one of the first HD newscasts in South Florida. The station selected Chyron’s HyperX2 system with Lyric PRO creation and playout software to provide continuous graphics rendering as key elements of its two main control rooms. The first HyperX2, installed in Control Room A, provides WPTV with two independent HD/SD channels; the second system, in Control Room B, delivers a single channel.

The systems allow WPTV to deliver lower-third, over-the-shoulder and full-screen HD graphics for local news and weather. The HyperX2 graphics engine can simultaneously manipulate multiple 3-D layers of text, logos, textures and movie objects, in real time.
