Australian network ABC is set to upgrade its graphics systems in seven cities across the country with Chyron products. Chyronâ€™s Asia-Pacific partner, Magna Systems and Engineering, will carry out the installation. ABC has ordered nine HyperX2 and 17 LEX2 graphics systems, all featuring Chyronâ€™s Lyric PRO advanced creation and playout software. The order also includes Chyronâ€™s complete news graphics management solution, CAMIO and four licenses for iSQ, the companyâ€™s remote monitoring and playout application. The systems, which will be used for the first time in June 2008 in Sydney and Melbourne, will also be installed in ABCâ€™s facilities in Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Darwin and Hobart.
The HD/SD-switchable HyperX2s and LEX2s will initially be used in SD. Sophisticated graphics produced by ABC for its news broadcasts will include over-the-shoulders, lower-thirds and full-frame backgrounds with real-time 2-D/3-D animation. CAMIO with iSQ will enable ABC to streamline its graphics workflow and allow operators to control independent output channels across multiple devices of MOS-generated playlists.
