Kevin Prince, Chryon's senior vice president and chief operating officer, showed me the latest addition to the company's production graphics systems — the HyperX3. The 2-D/3-D character generator and graphics platform is driven by the Lyric PRO 7 3-D creation and playback application. The system includes an advanced feature set of software designed for the easy creation of 3-D pie charts, bar charts and financial charts. It allows two channels of real-time HD graphics to be played out together, including full frame Quicktime and avi files. Prince said the system is designed to simply workflow and simply creation, while increasing the complexity of the graphics.
