Datavideo’s CG-200 and TC-200: an innovative HD CG system for mobile broadcasting, live conferences and dynamic video presentations. Using a standard laptop, it enables users to create and deliver attractive on-screen graphics and titles in real-time. It is easy to operate, designed to be intuitive and responsive under the pressure of a live event.

CG-200 and TC-200 works with standard Windows laptops with an HDMI interface and supports vision mixers with and without a DSK. Until now, real-time PC titling software has required an additional SDI adapter card to be fitted into a desktop PC. For live programming on location, a computer-based character generator can be problematic, in terms of the physical bulk of the PC, the need for an additional screen and the power requirement. CG-200 and TC-200 makes professional CG on the run a reality.
