Compix SchoolSmart(TM) Package Gives Students an Edge in Developing and Refining Graphics Creation Skills

IRVINE, Calif. — May 26, 2010 — Compix, a leading developer of professional character generators (CGs), today announced the availability of the new Compix SchoolSmart(TM) package, an affordable graphics add-on package that educational institutions can use to empower their students in gaining valuable experience and establishing skills in building high-quality broadcast graphics. Available for any Compix CG system, the package includes a 10-year unlimited offline GenCG software license for students, instructors, and faculty members, who now have the flexibility to create graphics anywhere and any time on their own computers.

“The Compix SchoolSmart package gives students the freedom to exercise and refine their creative skills without competing for computer time or working around graphics lab schedules,” said Veronica Kim, Compix president. “The package provides all the tools incorporated into our GenCG software, making them available online and offline and, in turn, contributing to a richer learning environment as students enter the professional broadcast realm.”

Tools and features of the SchoolSmart package include easy interfacing and connectivity with leading news automation and control systems such as EZ News or Comprompter; intuitive software tools for creation of high-impact titles and graphics; and a host of clip art images, fonts, professional templates, and stylish backgrounds. Animated graphics can be imported into the CG or used for other video and Web projects. Students and faculty can save and transfer their graphics via network or USB drive and bring them to the main Compix system in class or in the lab for easy retrieval and playback.

Compix’s GenCG software is equipped with an intuitive interface, logically set playback controls, and a sizeable array of features, such as rolls and crawls, more than 250 transitional effects, and user-definable clocks and timers, that help users to create brilliant graphics, online or offline, locally or remotely, and incorporate them into live production. Because GenCG uses Microsoft Windows(R) Language settings and fonts, it ensures multilingual support and allows graphics staff to take advantage of unlimited TrueType(R) font styles. GenCG’s Style Catalog offers easy access to frequently used graphics, colors, font attributes, and templates.
