ESPN Steps Up Chyron Duet Usage

(January 20, 2004) Melville, NY--Chyron's Duet platform will continue to be used as the field playout system for ESPN’s graphics look. Chyron will now work with mobile suppliers to help them migrate to the Duet platform.
Chyron estimates more than 200 systems in live event trucks will need to be replaced over the next several months. According to Rich Hajdu, Chyron’s vice president of sales and marketing, "We have put together a package for remote providers, which offers the Duet sports configuration at a price point that will enable them to recoup their investment much sooner than has been the case in the past."
The Duet configuration includes a two-channel system with clips, Chyron keyboard, additional hard drive capacity and Chyron’s new C-Mix timeline-controlled layering mixer. Chyron’s Lyric software will be used for content creation and realtime playout and will include features such as off-line content creation, extensive integration of data-based player information, as well as iNFiNiT file compatibility and editing.
