Chyron Ships HyperX HD Graphics System
Posted Oct 12, 2004

Chyron Corporation has started shipping the Duet HyperX HD graphics system to customers including Turner Studios in Atlanta, WJW-TV in Cleveland, and KAKM-TV in Anchorage, AK.

The Duet HyperX is a CG system that can be configured as HD only, SD only, or a combination HD/SD, offering a flexible and scalable migration path. Duet HyperX runs Lyric, Chyron's content creation and playout software, and offers multi-channel operation and full-motion compressed clips with key and RAID 5 storage. The system is MOS-ready and includes Chyron's proprietary Intelligent Interface.

3D playout is achieved with the Duet HyperX. 3D scenes and objects may be imported from a wide variety of sources, viewed, and edited in 3D space within Lyric, then incorporated within Lyric messages. All operations, including 3D, clips, and animations, are real-time with no rendering, according to Chyron.

Other options available for the HyperX include Lyricstore by Proximity, a graphics management system that enables users to search and deploy graphics content from a variety of devices for repurposing in Lyric. Chyron MOS is available for either Avid iNews or AP ENPS systems, and includes a simplified UI that enables fast updates to the producer's rundown and easy image replacement for pre-built templates.
