Based on a Decklink card in a PC, the Datavideo CG-100 Character Generator Software is an affordable CG with exquisite SDI quality. The Decklink card connects to the SDI Overlay/Graphics input on the SE-800 or any video switcher that accepts SDI keyed graphics input.
The CG-100 can hold many pages, limited only by the computer's processor speed and RAM speed and size. If you have 150-200 pages you will need a faster computer with more storage than if you have 50 pages.

Simple shapes (bars, ellipses and rectangles) are menu items and may be added to the page
