Compix LCGn Series of Standard Definition CGs Brings Quality, Ease of Use to Every Level of Production

IRVINE, Calif. — July 21, 2009 — Compix, a leading developer of professional-quality character generators (CGs), announced today the release of the new LCGn series of sensibly priced, broadcast-quality analog video CG systems that are ideal for any kind of production. Designed to meet the needs of standard definition (SD) production in broadcast, cable, house of worship, government, and education market segments, the single- and dual-channel products in the LCGn series are stand-alone systems that feature intuitive drag-and-drop operation and a robust selection of effects and prebuilt templates, combined in a straightforward turnkey solution.

“Improving the quality of your broadcast output doesn’t have to involve excessive expense and complexity,” said Lan Merrill, vice president of engineering at Compix. “The LCGn series is based on SD video, but its performance and feature set are well beyond standard. Each LCGn CG features the same easy-to-use software applications found in our full-sized Compix systems, including our award winning dual-channel CynerG2 HD and HD-ready systems, giving operators the tools they need to create and take graphics to air quickly. When composite video is the right standard, the LCGn series is the right fit, at the right price.”

The LCGn CGs provide users with a simple WYSIWYG interface that has been refined by Compix to ensure ease of operation. Integrated GenCG software offers powerful design, layout, and playback capabilities, allowing the user to set up an entire graphics presentation offline and then take those graphics immediately to air while working on the next graphics series. In addition to professional templates, colorful backgrounds, and more than 260 rolls, crawls, reveals, and other effects, the Compix software incorporates Microsoft® Windows® MLE multiple language settings and thousands of TrueType® fonts, supporting unlimited font styles.

Three configurations are available for the series. The LCGn Single Studio is a single-channel system that supports analog composite (NTSC/PAL) inputs and outputs with video, key, and internal video overlay. The LCGn Dual Studio adds a second channel to these features. Both systems are packaged in a 4RU rack-mount chassis designed for the studio environment. The LCGn Single Desktop system shares the functionality of the LCGn Single Studio but is offered in a mini-desktop chassis. In addition to the standard composite inputs and outputs, component and Y/C I/O are also available. All LCGn models may be used with or without a video switcher.

Because each model in the LCGn line is preassembled, preconfigured, and pretested prior to delivery, and because each system features a very short learning curve, users can begin creating and taking graphics to air in no time.
