When you intend to use only printed information on a graphic, you should
use a character generator (CG) to generate the text. A CG saves time and
removes the tedium of laying out mass quantities of text.
A character generator is a computer graphics system used widely in closed
circuit and broadcast television. It creates text (letters and numbers) in a
variety of sizes and fonts. A CG has a keyboard similar to a microcomputer
and can store text on a floppy or hard disc drive system. A CG requires no
special skill to operate and allows the user to make flawless letters.
Figure 3-6 is a character generator (CG).
