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.

The CG-100 is sold as a Software + Hardware combo, which comes with the character generator program and a Decklink PCI card, both compatible with Windows PC computers. You have a choice of using the Decklink SDI Card with the CG system, which will allow SDI connections between the computer and your switcher, or you can purchase your CG-100 with the Decklink Studio Card, which allows SDI connection AND other Analog connections, including Composite Video, Component Video, and S-Video. The CG-100 can also be purchased as software only, which will require a separately-bought Decklink card, or as a fully-assembled ready-to-use workstation, the PCR-100.
