The Compix ConverG1 HD was installed by Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, as part of a recent expansion of the Rutgers University football stadium. Incorporated into the stadium's HD video infrastructure upgrade, the Compix CG feeds HD text and graphics to a new 38-foot-high and 112-foot-wide Daktronics video scoreboard that is among the largest at any NCAA football stadium.

The ConverG1 HD is designed for the video professional looking for a broadcast level of performance for graphics and effects. The system includes a 4-RU chassis, outputting graphics in either SD-SDI or HD-SDI, as required. An SD/HD-SDI built-in downstream keyer enables HD and digital overlays, and the unit's SD/HD-SDI output can easily be configured upstream of the switcher. Through the Compix GenCG software, the ConverG1 HD offers users a selection of standard rolls, crawls, and more than 260 transition effects, as well as a user-definable clock/timer. An integrated scheduler suite, direct import animation software, and stock fonts and libraries aid in smooth, speedy design.

The Compix system is installed in the native 1080i HD video control room newly integrated into the stadium press box along with an Echolab Overture HD switcher and Click Effects CrossFire and Flashback systems for graphics and instant replays. On game days, control room staff uses the Compix system to put full-page graphics and player information on the Daktronics video board along with updates from other NCAA football games.
