Compix CynerG2 Broadcast Graphics System Earns Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit Award at 2009 NAB Show

IRVINE, Calif. — May 21, 2009 — Compix, a leading developer of broadcast-quality character generators (CGs) for the broadcast and related markets, today announced that the company’s CynerG2 dual-channel HD/SD stand-alone graphics system earned a Pick Hit award from Broadcast Engineering magazine at the 2009 NAB Show. With support for analog, SD-SDI, and HD-SDI operation in 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio environments, the Compix CynerG2 is a premium broadcast-quality solution for stunning real-time graphics output catering to current and future CG users needs.

“Our CynerG2 system offers versatile support for all common formats and flexible, future-proof options that provide our customers with an elegant upgrade path to HD operations,” said Lan Merrill, director of technology at Compix. “We designed the CynerG2 to offer an affordable combination of power, ease of use, and long-term utility, and we’re pleased that the significance of these capabilities has been recognized and honored with the esteemed Pick Hit award from Broadcast Engineering.”

Available in analog, SD-SDI, and HD-SDI models, the HD-ready dual-channel CynerG2 provides the power of two systems in a single chassis — for 40 percent less than the cost of operating two separate CG units. CynerG2 operators can leverage the functionality of both channels to create multiple overlays with the system’s built-in downstream keyers, or they can add to the visual interest of their graphics output by drawing from more than 260 built-in page-to-page transitions including dissolves, credit rolls, crawls, and reveals.

Two completely different streams with separate graphic looks can run from each channel, with lower-thirds and full screens on the first channel and, with the integrated NewsScroll application, the addition of ticker crawls, a logo, and time and weather information on the second channel. Integrated into the CynerG2, Compix GenCG graphics creation and playback software is compatible with all resolutions, offering endless possibilities with 4,000 preloaded TrueType fonts, as well as bundled backgrounds, elements, and templates.

Compix makes upward migration of CynerG2 systems easy, with the move from analog to SD-SDI requiring only a simple firmware upgrade and the easy, straightforward move to HD-SDI, thanks to the HD-ready construction of all SD-SDI models.

With a 25-year history, Pick Hit awards are the most prestigious technical awards given at NAB. During the 2009 show, a panel of independent judges toured the show floor for three days, looking for innovative products and technology. The judges based their selections on several criteria, including the technical and financial improvements the product can bring to a facility’s operation.
