Innovation in New Release of Widely Deployed LEX3.1 System Gives Broadcasters a Graphics Solution That Enhances Workflow and Meets Future Needs Today
Chyron today announced that LEX3.1, the newest release of the company’s powerful and popular on-air graphics system, has been refined to provide free support for stereoscopic 3D. Through continuous R&D in response to changing industry demands, Chyron brings added technological innovation to this acclaimed workhorse and offers customers a future-facing solution capable of addressing their current and evolving graphics needs.
“The LEX3.1 is designed to meet the current performance requirements of users ranging from smaller sports broadcasters to national broadcast groups, as well as to give them the future opportunity to launch stereoscopic 3D broadcasting both simply and cost-effectively,” said Peter Morrone, senior vice president of engineering at Chyron. “Support for stereoscopic 3D is yet another benefit afforded by the increasing processing power of our on-air graphics systems and by the ongoing technical gains achieved in the Chyron lab. We’re pleased to be bringing this added capability to Chyron customers.”
A mainstay in sports trucks and news operations, the LEX3.1 system boasts a seamless workflow from graphic creation to playout; real-time 2D/3D animation; and a host of hardware and software features including 2D and 3D object import, advanced text and image effects, clip playout, and Chyron’s Intelligent Interface® and DB Link update. In fast-paced live coverage, the LEX3.1 system’s template-based text and graphics enable instant updates from data feeds and databases.
In addition to delivering quality graphics at a very attractive price point, the LEX3.1 offers broadcasters and other media companies a future-proof solution that will equip them to meet demand for 3D content. Chyron’s LEX3.1 Double Advantage software bundle contains stereoscopic 3D capabilities in addition to Chyron’s advanced Lyric® PRO graphics creation, and is available on all two-channel LEX3.1 systems — allowing broadcasters to enhance their on-air presence. Through Lyric PRO, LEX3.1 users gain access to the basic toolsets required to position stereoscopic 3D graphics optimally for left- and right-eye viewing.
Chyron will be demonstrating its LEX3.1 graphics system throughout IBC2011 at stand 7.D11.
