3G/HD/SD Channel Branding Processor

The Densité LGK-3901 is a low cost, modular channel branding processor, capable of inserting up to five layers of graphics into 3G/HD/SD. Three of the keying layers can be fed by internally stored still/animated graphics, and two layers are fed by external graphics devices. It also offers character generation, clock insertion, EAS support and audio clip/voiceover playout. The LGK-3901 is ideal for pre-rendered graphics.
