Polopoly delivers a best-of-breed web presentation solution combined with Chyron’s leading web-based graphic systems.

Chyron Chief Operating Officer Kevin Prince said, "Some of the highest-traffic web sites in Europe have their roots in the Atex Polopoly platform primarily because those sites have a mission-critical need for reliable business solutions.
