The PCR-100SDI Character Generator Rackmount Computer System from Datavideo is a complete mobile solution that includes the CG-100 software package and a Blackmagic Decklink SDI Card preinstalled in a 3U rackmount computer. This turnkey solution allows you to place the computer in your equipment rack to facilitate your live- and post-production work. It is compatible with Datavideo's SE-800DV or SE-800AV switchers or any system that accepts an SD-SDI DSK.
The system's key component is a PC-based software package capable of producing lower thirds, text rolls, text crawls and many other character generation effects. The software supports any installed font and your choice of languages, although the interface menu remains fixed in English. The amount of text you can save with this system is only limited by the size of your hard drive. When used in "Live Operation Mode," this solution can also be used as a live, on-screen typewriter.
