Compix Media introduces CYNERG HD character generator
Compix Media launched the CYNERG HD, an HD character generator that simultaneously outputs graphics in either SD-SDI or HD-SDI.
The CG brands multiple video streams with different overlay material from a single chassis and one easy-to-use interface. Rather than invest in two separate CG systems, users can apply the CYNERG HD to two different functions at once. In addition, because the data required to create and playback graphics can be used between the CG’s shared data storage, users need to maintain only one set of graphics data.
Optional features that CG supports include dedicated logo insertion, EAS message generation and automated template-based sports-score generation. Logo generation is offered via Compix Media’s NewsScroll, an application that creates up to two independent crawls, manually updated or automatically updated from text files or RSS feeds.
