HD / SD Character Generator Kit

Photoshop and After Effects can create beautiful CG but don't deliver the speed and playout control that live producers require. Realtime graphics is what makes CG-500 stand out: multi-layer titles can be created and modified on the fly, making every production immediate and highly responsive. Multiple playlists can be created and played out manually or to a schedule. Results can be sent to live TV or saved to a file for use in post production.

This is a broadcast-standard titling programme, with high class templates, external data support, sophisticated play out options and GPU-rendered effects. It's suitable for everything from webstreaming and IPTV to AV presentations and live TV.
