The rack-mounted PCRM350HD Character Generator Workstation from Datavideo is a space-saving system that consumes only 1RU space. The complete system comes bundled with all the necessary software and hardware to add CG capabilities to your mobile production studio. In addition, the PCRM-350 workstation comes already-assembled, configured, and ready for use at the push of a button.
The installed CG-350 Software in the PCRM-350 includes basic text functions, plus some additional useful features like banner crawls and Snyper (corner graphics, station IDs, coming up next animations, etc.) that can appear separately from the main CG actions. Thus, you can set continuously-looping banner crawls and/or corner graphics while you independently control the timing of the other CG elements.
Create static and animated title pages using editable text, layers, graphic placements and shapes.
