GFX chooses Chyron Duet LEX for sports graphics production

GFX has chosen the Chyron Corp. Duet LEX graphics system with Lyric compositing tool as its graphics solution for worldwide sports coverage.

The Duet LEX was used during the May 2003 inaugural U.K. Darts Open Championship in Bolton. Since then, it's been used for the Desert Classic II in Las Vegas where Lyric's ability to convert graphics from PAL 16:9 to NTSC 4:3 enabled the operators to do the job in record time.

GFX also recently completed its first season covering Rugby Union's Zurich Premiership and boxing and darts coverage for Sky Sports in the U.K.

For boxing, the Duet LEX is used with the GFX Punch Statistics application and Intelligent Interface facility. By using 10Base-T networking, GFX is able to control the Duet LEX through standard 75ohm video cabling, which enables the Duet LEX to be permanently installed into the O.B. truck.

The Punch Statistics application runs on a ringside laptop where operators input statistics via handheld game-pad controllers. Templates in Lyric are then populated with the appropriate data and displayed on the director's cue.
