    Comments about Datavideo CG-350 Character Generator for SD & HD:

    The unit works well and has a lot of features for an HD character generator. Simply plug your HDMI output from your laptop into the unit and it will spit out fill an key signal into your switcher. Software allows you to import graphics, fonts and even symbols. Save individual pages and call them up by double clicking the file. Best part is its integration with a CSV or text file. Import data for scores, tickers and more. Great little unit with lots of potential: Bug box, news ticker, social media ticker, station ID and much more. Cant find an HD unit that comes close to features at this price.
