"We are excited to be part of the premiere of 3D football," said Bonnie Barclay, Chyron's Chief Marketing Officer.  "Verizon FiOS is truly showing us what the next generation of television will look like."

Terry Denson, vice president of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon, said, "Tonight's 3D broadcast on FiOS TV will further enhance the game-day experience for our customers, from the comfort of their homes.  Chyron's Lyric PRO 8 paired with the expertise of their creative services team will help make this broadcast a success, and we look forward to working with them again to bring more 3D into our FiOS TV customers' homes."
