Australia’s ABC network upgrades graphics with Chyron

Australian network ABC is set to upgrade its graphics systems in seven cities across the country with Chyron products. Chyron’s Asia-Pacific partner, Magna Systems and Engineering, will carry out the installation. ABC has ordered nine HyperX2 and 17 LEX2 graphics systems, all featuring Chyron’s Lyric PRO advanced creation and playout software. The order also includes Chyron’s complete news graphics management solution, CAMIO and four licenses for iSQ, the company’s remote monitoring and playout application. The systems, which will be used for the first time in June 2008 in Sydney and Melbourne, will also be installed in ABC’s facilities in Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Hobart.

The HD/SD-switchable HyperX2s and LEX2s will initially be used in SD. Sophisticated graphics produced by ABC for its news broadcasts will include over-the-shoulders, lower-thirds and full-frame backgrounds with real-time 2-D/3-D animation. CAMIO with iSQ will enable ABC to streamline its graphics workflow and allow operators to control independent output channels across multiple devices of MOS-generated playlists.
