Yup, Chyron is/was a big name in broadcast TV CGs.  A CG is a "character 
generator", responsible for all the crawls, graphic pages, titling, 
journalists' names at the bottom of the screen... you name it.  We had a 
Chyron Max or Maxine (can't remember which) at Georgia Tech before 
upgrading..  it's been so long, I can't remember what we upgraded to.  
Definately a later edition Chyron.

Too bad, I think that would've been kinda cool to have.
