Chyron’s Duet HyperX features Featuring real-time HD and SD animation. It can also be upgraded to use two software-switchable HD/SD channels, either one of which may integrate a compressed HD/SD clip player. The system allows for seamless switching between HD and SD formats.

The Duet LEX system includes a Windows 2000 operating system, graphics creation tools, Lyric 2-D/3-D CG/animation with 500 true type fonts and CAL API for automated data-driven applications such as Chyron’s NewsCrawl.
