Please help identify this Chyron font

Hey folks! I know this is a pretty common one from the 80s/90s. It’s a font from a Chyron generator. From what I’m aware, it could be from a Chyron 4100EXB, SuperScribe, or Infinit!. I’d love to know what the actual font name is though. Thanks in advance!


Hi @orangefuzzz,

maybe it’s Gill Sans, Medium or Bold Italic, but the capital V and W in PREVIEW are too pointy for these font faces. Possibly the Light Italic font face was used and the Chyron program manually boldened it or something…

Cheers :wink:


Thank you so much, Hondo! There are elements of ITC Johnston, Gill Sans and seemingly Arial (the lower case “a”, “t”, etc. incorporated into this font. I really wish there was a typeface list for Chyron’s old equipment. Thank you again!

“LIVE AT” looks like Crillee with a stroke and drop shadow or extrusion:
