KMOV-TV Selects Chyron for HD News Transition

KMOV-TV in St. Louis (DMA no. 21) has installed two of Chyron’s HD/SD-switchable HyperX² graphics systems, as well as Channel Box, Chyron’s HD/SD-switchable channel branding and automated promo system. The broadcaster also is including in its digital infrastructure a Camio news graphic management package, and iSQ, Chyron’s remote monitoring and play-out application.

The two HyperX² graphics systems, which are installed in KMOV’s studio control room, are being used to generate all of the station’s HD graphics for its local news programs, including lower-thirds, full-screen, OTS, banners and tickers. The Channel Box will be used for downstream graphics on the station’s HD Channel. The system will provide channel branding, IDs, schools closings, severe weather information, and more local data.
