Datavideo TC-200 HD / SD Character Generator Kit

Datavideo's CG-200 and TC-200: an innovative HD CG system for mobile broadcasting, live conferences and dynamic video presentations.

Using a standard laptop, it enables users to create and deliver attractive on-screen graphics and titles in real-time.

CG-200 and TC-200 works with standard Windows laptops with an HDMI interface and supports vision mixers with and without a DSK.
