Compix LCGn Gives Sport View Technologies a Competitive Edge in Providing Live Broadcast Systems and Services

Integrated Into Turnkey Control Room Solution for Pari-Mutuel Broadcast Services, Compix CG Offers Winning Performance and Ease of Use

IRVINE, Calif. — Sept. 27, 2010 — Compix, a leading developer of professional character generators (CGs), announced today that Sport View Technologies is integrating Compix LCGn single-channel desktop units within its turnkey control-room solutions for pari-mutuel broadcast systems. The LCGn systems make it easy for staff at horse-race tracks to insert broadcast-quality graphics, titling, and ads into live video, which is uplinked from each track’s broadcast facilities for domestic and international distribution.

“The Compix LCGn was the right solution for our control room package for two basic reasons: compatibility and price,” said David Scott, director of broadcast engineering at Sport View Technologies. “The CG operates well with the broadcast equipment we already use, and its interface and control options are intuitive, so there was no need for additional training. The LCGn acts like a high-end CG, providing flawless performance, yet it’s a very affordable system. This combination is valuable in helping us to bid competitively and win more contracts. Proactive support from Compix staff after the purchase has been an added benefit.”

Sport View Technologies has more than 47 years of experience in the design, installation, maintenance, and operation of video production and distribution systems. For racetracks across the United States, the company integrates the Compix LCGn system, supplied by Duncan Video, into complete control room packages including cameras, switchers, DVRs, a router, and other infrastructure gear. The robust functionality of the Compix system enables Sport View Technologies to incorporate information such as welcome and goodnight pages, host’s picks, race predictions, and advertisements into video with broadcast-quality images.

The Compix LCGn features a composite SD single-channel input and output video and key, with internal video overlay. The unit boasts the same rich software applications found in Compix’s full-sized systems. The built-in GenCG software is a powerful template-based design, layout, and playback software package that is simply managed through a single user interface. With GenCG’s graphic creation tools, Sport View Technologies staff can set up an entire graphics presentation offline and, during race-day production, take those graphics immediately to air while editing the next on-air series. GenCG uses Windows(R) MLE multiple language settings and TrueType(R) fonts, allowing multilingual support and unlimited font styles.

“With its compelling combination of high performance and low cost, the LCGn is an excellent solution for turnkey live broadcast systems,” said Veronica Kim, Compix president. “We’re pleased to see that Sport View Technologies has very successfully deployed more than a half-dozen units so far, leveraging the strengths of the LCGn to help advance its pari-mutuel broadcast business.”

Like all Compix CG systems, the LCGn comes with the Freedom Support Plan, which provides free service and support for the lifetime of the product. More information about Compix Media Inc. and its product line is available at www.compix.tv.
