CBC Covers Olympics With Chyron

The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)--producer of more than 300 hours of Olympic coverage--is using Chyron Duet Lex and Aprisa VCS to cover the summer games in Athens. CBC used the Melville, N.Y.-based company's graphics program for the Sydney games in 2000 and again for the 2002 games in Salt Lake City.

"It's a real honor to know that our equipment is being used to help broadcast the excitement and the emotion of the Athens Olympics Games to people all over the globe," said Phil Carmichael, director of creative services for Chyron.
