Chyron, a provider of graphics as a service for on-air and digital video applications, introduces the HyperXLP, a dual-channel-capable broadcast graphics platform that sets a new standard for performance in a compact 1-RU configuration.

Designed for live news, sports and outside broadcasting productions, HyperXLP occupies a quarter of the space of a standard HyperX system and consumes half as much power, Chyron says. High-speed solid-state storage supports the dependable performance by the HyperXLP, as well as its low profile when rugged design and space conservation are a must, the company says.

“The HyperXLP is a triple threat: blazingly fast, environmentally friendly and ready for the demands of mobile production,” said Bill Hendler, Chyron’s chief technology officer. “With features including a high-speed multi-core processor, solid-state storage and native stereoscopic 3D graphics capability, the system offers performance worthy of even the most advanced live news and sports broadcasts,” Hendler said.

HyperXLP leverages Chyron’s award-winning Lyric PRO graphics creation and playback software to deliver unmatched performance for its compact size. When deployed with an optional second channel, HyperXLP can meet virtually any broadcast graphic demand.

The system’s powerful graphics engine—built on the latest Intel multi-core processor—simultaneously manipulates 3D graphics faster than ever before, Chyron says. The system also enables stereoscopic 3D graphics to be built easily from existing scenes without any modification, the company says. With those capabilities, operators can create, edit, and update eye-catching graphics with unmatched ease. In addition, HyperXLP offers quick manual updates, as well as a powerful set of update tools including ODBC connections, Adobe XMP metadata and the industry-standard Chyron Intelligent Interface, Chyron says.
