IRVINE, Calif. – Feb 10, 2009 – Compix Media, a leading developer of professional-quality character generators (CGs), today launched its new CYNERG HD, a broadcast-quality, dual-channel HD CG with unrivalled price to performance for the broadcast, sports, professional, educational, and government markets. Capable of simultaneously outputting graphics in either SD-SDI or HD-SDI, Compix Media’s new dual-channel CYNERG HD packs a powerful punch into a conveniently sized 4-RU chassis.
“Our goal in expanding our HD product line is to offer a range of world-class solutions that ease the cost and complexity of HD migration for our customers,” said Lan Merrill, director of technology at Compix Media. “This full-featured, broadcast-quality dual-channel HD CG is no exception, boosting workflow and offering substantial time and cost savings without sacrificing functionality.”
The CYNERG HD has the inherent advantage of branding multiple video streams with different overlay material from a single chassis and one easy-to-use interface. Rather than invest in two separate CG systems, users can apply the CYNERG HD to two different functions at once, saving both time and money. Additionally, because the data required to create and playback graphics can be used between CYNERG HD’s shared data storage, users need only maintain one set of graphics data.
Dedicated logo insertion, EAS message generation, and automated template-based sports-score generation are some of the optional features supported by the CYNERG HD. Logo generation is offered via Compix Media’s NewsScroll, an application that creates up to two independent crawls, manually updated or automatically updated from text files or RSS feeds. NewsScroll also incorporates static and animated logos, a real-time clock, and automatic weather updates.
CYNERG HD is compatible with all previous Compix Media CG systems and operates with other optional Compix Media applications including AutoCast.
The CYNERG HD is SMPTE 292M compliant with 720p/1080i support. The system passes all required closed-captioning, VBI, HANC, VANC, and embedded audio systems requirements.
CYNERG HD accepts static graphic/logo import of TGA, BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG, and TIF files. Compix Media’s easy-to-use GenCG HD software, featuring an elegant and user-friendly GUI, is integrated into CYNERG HD, and offers 4,000 TrueType® fonts and 300,000 premium quality images included at no extra cost.
