Datavideo CG-300 Character Generator Software for SD and HD
The CG-350 and CG-300 are Windows-based character generators designed for live production and post production. Different functions are assigned to different sub-programs and layers. Both sets will work with a Blackmagic Design Decklink HD Extreme 3D or AJA Kona card, as a downstream keyer or as key and fill sources (depending on the card). Please note: Key and fill is only available via SDI or HD-SDI.
The CG-300 is a smaller version of the CG-350, without the Banner Crawl (continuously scrolling text) and Snyper (corner graphics, station IDs, "coming up next" animations, etc.) functions, which run independently from the character generator software. Please note: The CG-300 is available for sale in the U.S. only.
