The Phoenix Suns & the Golden State Warriors have completed another NBA season using Graphics Outfitters Dueo 2TM portable systems. Bob Adlhoch, Broadcast Producer/Director for the Suns commented on Graphics Outfitters' service and support:
“I have rented a portable Duet from Graphics Outfitters for the past 4 seasons and couldn’t be happier. Besides the machines being lightning fast and very reasonably priced, we save at least an hour each day in production time by not having to make a disk copy to the truck Duet. We plug it in and it’s ready to go. Not having to make a “copy list” during the day of pages or image files that need to be copied back at the end of the night saves time and ensures that if you had it one night, you’ll have it the next.
The customer service provided by Graphics Outfitters is second to none. On the rare occasions we have needed technical support, GO staff was always available and able to talk our operators through the solutions. As producers, we go to such great lengths to ensure the consistent quality of our broadcasts. Traveling my own Duet from Graphics Outfitters has become a necessity for me and the Phoenix Suns.”
The Suns finished the second half of the season strong, scoring over 100 points per game in 18 out of 34. Along with national broadcasts and NBA TV, the Suns can be seen in their markets on Fox Sports Arizona.
The Golden State Warriors finished their second season under new ownership. Comcast SportNet Bay Area HD coverage included over 33 Warriors games and Comcast Digital Cable ON DEMAND.

New Orleans, LA:
Graphics Outfitters introduced it's latest product development at the Alliance Productions annual meeting in New Orleans with the addition of SketchHDTM. SketchHD is a multi-format HD/SD switchable Telestration system with a simplified operator interface similar to the industry standard Codi Sketchpad™.
SketchHD is a touchscreen menu driven application providing rapid operator familiarization and workflow integration with a simplified user interface familiar to operators of legacy analog systems. SketchHD supports most common broadcast formats and frame rates in both 4:3 and 16:9. SketchHD has both fill and key outputs, with preview w/overlay to the remote touchscreen/operator location.
SketchHD is based on "open profiles" Video I/O and industry standard hardware profiles. This provides the ability to run alternate applications as the remote production workflow requires by simply transferring software enabling devices for applications such as Chyron Lyric™ and Ventuz™ based FoxBox as a backup for on-site dedicated system hardware failures. Thus providing piece of mind to Network Operators, Remote Production Companies, and crew that on-site mission critical graphics systems can employ the SketchHD system for emergency backup situations.
Graphics Outfitters National Sales Manager Rich Foley commented "We are pleased with the performance and simplified user interface provided by SkechHD. We want to thank those companies and individuals who collaborated with Graphics Outfitters on this endeavor to this unique multi-use platform".
