About the size of a smartphone, CG-Portable features four SDI ports for easy integration with production switchers and HD displays, as well as an Ethernet port for network connectivity. Two independent, multi-lingual text overlays support horizontal crawls and vertical rolls, while a timer overlay provides up/down count. Plus, CG-Portable supports more than 70 frames of graphic playback buffer, so users can insert animated as well as static logos over programming. Also, 70 frames can be used for frame memory.
With CG software developed by Brainstorm, CG-Portable provides a simple solution for fill and key mixing over live video or graphics for PEG (public, educational, government) channels. Broadcasters can also use it for downstream logo insertion for multicast channels. Plus, CG-Portable offers its own CG mixing capability over a background input. For digital signage applications in corporate and worship environments, CG-Portable can quickly provide customized updates about room schedules, daily menu specials, weather advisories, and other notifications.
