HDTV Slates?

Does anyone found a simple, cost effective way to produce HDTV telecine
slates(white characters over black background), without having to purchase
a marginal $26K upconverter, or other expensive hardware? We have been
making film slates, but it is not really efficient.  We are hoping that
Evertz, Leitch, Yem, Astro Systems,(or?) will come up with something.  Any
ideas? It's not art, only simple, boring slates ;-) One step forward, two
steps back.....
