Introduction A frequent requirement of customers is to use dynamic elements inside on-screen graphics. At Cinegy, we use the Cinegy Titler engine to render real-time graphics elements for compositing into the output from the Cinegy Playout engine. This engine has a lot of powerful features - as well as being a real-time optimized graphics system, it also supports binding of elements within a graphics scene to imported variables.
Customers can update variables within the Cinegy Air or Cinegy CG operator panels, allowing injection and updating of elements on-the-fly - for example, to caption the name of a person appearing on-screen, or to provide some values for a weather forecast graphic.
