NBC Olympics will use 30 Lyric systems to cover the Winter Games, with about half deployed at its headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut, and the remaining used at NBC Olympics’ production facility at the International Broadcast Center in PyeongChang. In addition, multiple ChyronHego Live Compositor systems will be used for producing additional programming and digital content.

“We are looking forward to using the ChyronHego Mosaic XL2, the ChyronHego Mosaic Duo with Lyric PRO, and the ChyronHego PRIME Clips units in PyeongChang this coming February,” said Paully. “With improved software, video output cards and an overall improvement in operating system and storage, we look forward to increased speed and reliability.”

“Once again, ChyronHego has the great honour of providing state-of-the-art technology for NBC Olympics’ production of the 2018 Winter Games,” said Lopez. “We share NBC Olympics’ passion for innovation and creative presentations that draw viewers into the action during high-profile live sports telecasts. NBC Olympics has come to trust Lyric’s proven performance and reliability in live production environments, with powerful and yet easy-to-use tools that support engaging storytelling and a memorable presentation of popular sports.”
