Compix Gives Clemson Tigers a Flexible, Affordable CG Solution for Enhancing Live Video and Webcasts

IRVINE, Calif. — May 26, 2009 — Compix, a leading developer of professional-quality character generators (CGs), today announced that Clemson University is using the company’s CynerG2 HD dual-channel character generator to incorporate live statistics, lower-thirds, and other graphics into their big-screen video wall and Webcasts for Tigers basketball games at Littlejohn Coliseum. The CGs are also being used for Webcasts of home baseball games from Doug Kingsmore Stadium and for football games at Memorial Stadium.
“The Compix CynerG2 has allowed us to provide both video and stats for basketball games without increasing our display footprint or adding a second board, and it is valuable across baseball and football, too, as a tool for enhancing our Webcasts,” said Rick Bagby, director of the Clemson University Athletic Video Services Department. “We’re already excited about the next basketball season because the more we play with the Compix CynerG2 system, the better we are at providing compelling graphical information to fans.”

The Video Services team, with the support of Compix, has customized the CynerG2 HD to accept live statistics from the sports information department. Reading an XML page with sports information, the Compix CynerG2 system provides current statistics for players and games. The CG has been integrated into a mobile production system that can be moved from venue to venue as the sports season changes.

In Littlejohn Coliseum, the university has upgraded from a traditional scoreboard to a video screen, and the Compix CynerG2 has given Video Services the tools they need to incorporate scoring and statistical information into the new video display. Clemson currently uses the system at Doug Kingsmore Stadium, where it allows the student staff to add graphics and stats to baseball Webcasts, giving them the look, feel, and data characteristics of a network television broadcast. When baseball ends and the football season begins, the mobile system will be moved and installed at the Memorial Stadium to enhance the experience for fans, whether they’re watching from the stands or over the Internet. With the ability to provide both SD and HD graphics, the Compix system also provides a flexible platform for the Video Services’ transition to HD.

The CynerG2 HD dual-channel CG is a 4-RU system that supports all digital SD-SDI and 1080i and 720p (60/59.94/50) formats. Integrated GenCG software is easy to use and provides a sizeable array of features such as rolls, crawls, and more than 250 transitional effects, as well as user-definable clocks and timers. The mobile system incorporating the CynerG2 HD was integrated by the Clemson Video Services Department in conjunction with Tommy Cario of The WH PLATTS Company in South Carolina and Adam Daniul of Emerald Communications® in North Carolina.

“Working with Compix has been great,” added Bagby. “We approached the company with our needs, and they delivered a product that met both our needs and budget. The functionality provided by the Compix CynerG2 solution and its attractive price point makes the product a very interesting and practical solution for university and professional sports teams.”
