Fox Sports Australia kicks off the summer 2007 calenadr with Chyron

Chyron Corporation has announced that Sydney-based Premier Media Group,
operators of Fox Sports in Australia, has installed three LEX graphics
systems, two DynaCrawl independent, dual-ticker/time/temp/logo data
display channels and a CMix multi-layer digital video mixer for its major Sports Network. The
sale was carried out by Chyron’s Asian partner, Magna Systems &
Engineering.

Chyron’s systems are being used in Fox Sport’s three studios for

news, magazine shows and live production. Fox Sports News utilizes one

LEX for sophisticated graphics on its 24/7 channel and both DynaCrawl

systems for continuous ticker information displays. The network also

uses Lyric offline software to prepare Chyron graphics at the start of

a season or new show, allowing operators to arrange out of the studio,

but still at the desktop, without tying-up an LEX full time.

“As part of an intensive graphics system selection process, a number

of key system features were rated including non-linear integration,

system architecture, file exchange capabilities, local support,

international acceptance of the product, automation interfaces, user

interfaces, graphical design, replay features and price. Following

this period, the Chyron LEX was rated, by all involved, as the best

system for our requirements,” commented Michael Day, Chief Engineer,

Premier Media Group.

William Payne, Chyron’s Director of Sales, Asia Pacific added, “We

are delighted to announce this installation at Fox Sports. The LEX is

an extremely reliable graphics engine that provides live news networks

with a workhorse that features seamless creation to playout, real-time

2D/3D animation and a host of hardware and software features,

including 2D and 3D object import, movie objects, Advanced Text and

Image Effects, Intelligent Interface and DB Link update, and macro

creation/execution. The DynaCrawl systems are supremely flexible, with

the ability to provide automatically updating data from a wide variety

of sources. Data display is enhanced with user-set fonts, static

graphics and flipbooks.”
