Datavideo CG-300 is an HD/SD Character Generator Software extremely powerful titling program designed especially for the live broadcast and video post-production environment. The CG-300 comes with a Title Compose program for creating high-quality title pages. A display list can be created ahead of time to make on-air usage a simple, one keystroke operation, or you can randomly select the title pages while on air. Once the title pages have been composed, they can be displayed automatically or completely under Manual Control. It can be used to display standard format graphic. Title pages and graphic images can be freely intermixed with one another in any order.
The title pages can contain Text, background colour boxes, geometric shapes, full-colour graphics images such as logos and background graphic. The text is created using TrueType typefaces and can be sized, kerned, rotated, and italicized. Each of the characters can have up to two edges and three shadows. Moreover, the character's edges and shadows can be colorized with a solid colour, a vertical colour spread, a colour gradient (4pt, 5pt, or linear), or textures.
The Media Catalogue is divided into three groups based upon the type of images that the software can display. These are titles and graphic images. These images can be quickly added to the Display List Editor to create a display list.
