Engage CG is an innovative master control graphics platform on macOS, developed by BTi for broadcasters in the US, and when combined with the Bluefish444 Epoch | Neutron, becomes a powerful way for news brands to captivate and delight their viewers with beautiful real-time information tickers, no matter the platform it is viewed on.
