Mobile Studios Launches Pro HD CG

Mobile Studios' CGenie Mobile Studios has announced the latest addition to its line of ultra-portable PortaCast flypack systems with the release of the CGenie Pro HD Character Generator.

CGenie, which the company says is priced “substantially less” than competitive models, integrates a processor, LCD monitor and pull-out keyboard in Mobile Studios’ PortaCast CG airline travel case with wheels and telescoping handle for easy transport. It is also available as a desktop model and a 1RU ultra compact rackmount model.

CGenie Pro HD delivers broadcast-quality graphics, scrolling text, crawls, animations, lower thirds, score-boards, timers, over-the-shoulder inserts and on-the-fly titles with preformatted templates. The system provides independent control of multiple graphic elements.

“CGenie Pro HD answers a long felt industry need for a powerful character generator for SD and HD production at a truly affordable price,” said Rich Rubin, president of Mobile Studios, Inc. in Boca Raton, Fla.

Targeting turnkey CG solutions for broadcasters, colleges and universities, houses of worship and corporate communications, CGenie Pro HD comes equipped with a high performance quad-core processor and supports true 10-bit HD or SD at 1080i, 720p, 525i and custom video resolutions. It can easily connect to any video switcher or can be used as a standalone downstream keyer with full controls including a fader and automatic page sequencer.

CGenie is now shipping.
