Datavideo CG-300 Kit Character Generator for SD and HD

Manufacturer: Datavideo Corporation

Item #: DV-CG300KIT   •   MFG #: DV-CG300KIT







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. Both sets will work with a Blackmagic Design Decklink or AJA Xena card, as a downstream keyer or as key and fill sources (depending on the card).

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.

  • Features

    • The CG-350 features Banner Crawl for continuously-rolling text crawls and Snyper for corner graphics and animations (station IDs, "coming up next" animations, etc.) over your outgoing program, both running independent from the CG software
