The CG-100 is the first CG and titling software that uses the Blackmagic Design Decklink Card series as a video output card. The CG-100 can be used as an accessory for the Datavideo SE-900 vision mixer or as an individual unit. It is also the first Live CG software that has SDI interface at an affordable price. You will be amazed by what you can do with this advanced piece of technology.
SDI overlay offers the best broadcast quality CG solution in the industry today. However, it has always been beyond the budget of small studios and production houses - The Datavideo CG-100 has changed that!
The CG-100 combines with a Blackmagic Design DeckLink Card to bring you live SDI CG overlay at an affordable price. It supports NTSC and PAL video standards and is able to generate graphics for 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios. Pages can be composed and combined with animation effects, to run as a sequence, or they can be displayed and edited live. The CG-100 combines perfectly with the SE-900 to give superb quality graphics / text / logo overlay on live production mixes.CG-100 can be used in any SDI or YUV input switchers (with DeckLink SP, DeckLink Pro or DeckLink Extreme). It can also be used with the Datavideo SE-900 via the SDI text overlay interfaces.
Conferences, huddle rooms and presentations are fast paced environments where time is money and the audience does not like to wait. This is where an AV converter like the DAC-75T just thrives. Your speaker wants to connect their laptop and see it displayed or projected straight away. They may have VGA, DVI, HDMI, Display Port or even SDI. So not getting the picture and fiddling with tiny dip switches, in a dark room, is what they want to avoid. Especially when there is no tech guy around.
To coincide with the launch of Datavideo's CG-500, Holdan has released its quick guide to CG and titling software for live production.
