ESPN Sticks With Chyron for Field Production

Chyron's Duet platform will continue to be used as the field play-out system for ESPN's graphics. Chyron said it plans to work with other mobile suppliers to help them migrate to Duet, and estimates more than 200 systems in live event trucks will need to be replaced over the next several months. The Duet configuration includes a 2-channel system with clips, additional hard-drive capacity and Chyron's keyboard and C-Mix time-line controlled layering mixer. Chyron's Lyric software will be used for content creation and real-time play-out, and will include features such as off-line content creation, extensive integration of data-based player information and iNFiNiT file compatibility and editing.
