Portable 1RU Single Channel HD/SD Broadcast Graphics System

Packs Full Sized Punch In a Small Package

Designed for mobile broadcast and OB vans, fly pack systems, portable multi-venue use, and other locations with limited space. The CompactCG is purpose-built with the power of our industry-leading CGs. All the specifications and features you have come to expect in a full size system are in an easy-to-install, 1RU chassis.

Nothing Left Out But the Size

Don't let the small size fool you. The CompactCG has been designed from the ground up to have all the performance capabilities of our 4RU character generator systems. Special attention has been paid to cooling, building with industrial quality hardware, and creating a rugged chassis for every CompactCG. This ensures longevity and a trouble-free performance with no down time. The optional active input video relay bypass guarantees video pass-thru in case of a power loss. While we were able to squeeze all of these features into one rack unit, we have continued to provide the broadcast quality output Compix customers have come to expect.

Full-Sized Specs and Performance

The CompactCG system is built to meet the same tough HD-SDI and SD-SDI specifications including SMPTE 292M and SMPTE 259M with embedded audio pass-thru and EIA-608b closed captioning compatibility. Having full access of GenCG means calling up lower thirds and full page graphics are incredibly easy, especially with an array of high quality templates at your disposal.
