EAS/CG Question.

Post by terryallen44 » Fri Sep 15, 2017 4:59 pm

This is going to be a long shot, but I'm hoping to find people that have worked in a cable headend that may know or remember a little bit about the emergency alert system, but about an older style of CG.

Basically I was wondering if anybody may remember this CG brand that was used. This isn't for a headend, but more of a personal home project. In the video is the screen I'm inquiring about.

That looks like the Winmaster CG, which was part of an EAS package you could purchase with the TFT back in the 90s. The Winmaster would drive a Chyron Codi, as the actual CG generator.
