Hall Research Technologies' two new decoders, CC-101 and CC-101 Pro, capture closed-captioning text (CC1 through CC4) and overlay it on the video output for digital signage applications. The units can also display user-defined text anywhere on the screen, either played back from memory or received through a serial port in realtime. Both units provide composite and S-Video inputs and outputs; the CC-101 Pro version also provides PC (VGA) video as well as progressive component video (YPbPr) outputs.
