ABC’s “Monday Night Football” will once again use the Chyron Duet HyperX to generate 3-D graphics and enhanced animated effects for this season’s coverage which begins Monday.

With the help of Chyron’s Duet HyperX and Lyric graphics software, the network’s “Monday Night Football” graphics team no longer has to contend with static player headshots and statistical information.

By using the Duet HyperX, all player messages, including the headshots are going to be animated. The ABC crew wanted the ability to have animations on both channels and the HyperX makes that possible. The crew will be able to have something animating on one channel and switch to the other channel and call up another graphic without interrupting the first animation.

Dual-channel animations also provide the ability to playback much more animation, including 3-D objects with multiple texture maps. Similar to ESPN and FOX Sports, graphics generated by the Duet HyperX for ABC’s “Monday Night Football” are upconverted to HD as the game airs live.
