Chyron LEX gets stereoscopic 3D treatment
Chyron’s LEX 3.1 graphics system has been refined to provide free support for stereoscopic 3D.
“The LEX 3.1 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,” says 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 LEX 3.1 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 LEX 3.1 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 LEX 3.1 offers broadcasters and other media companies a future-proof solution that will equip them to meet demand for 3D content. Chyron’s LEX 3.1 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 LEX 3.1 systems — allowing broadcasters to enhance their on-air presence. Through Lyric PRO, LEX 3.1 users gain access to the basic toolsets required to position stereoscopic 3D graphics optimally for left- and right-eye viewing.
Chyron will demonstrate its LEX 3.1 graphics system throughout IBC2011 at stand 7.D11.
