DeckLink-Compatible Character Generator Software
The CG-100 is a PC-based character generator that uses the DeckLink SDI™ or DeckLink Studio™ video cards to produces lower thirds, text rolls, text crawls and more. It can import .TGA animations, text files, still images and even display the PC’s time. Any font installed on the system can be used by our character generators, as well as languages (i.e. if using Arabic, Hebrew, etc., text appears right to left – the program itself is in English only). You can create and save as much text as your hard drive allows, and they can be recalled in sequence. Using the Live Operation Mode, the CG-100 can also be used as a live on-screen typewriter.
