At BroadcastAsia 2018, Cobalt Digital (Stand 6H3-01) will demonstrate the 9904-UDX-4K-12G UHD 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI up/down/cross-converter, which is now shipping. The 9904-UDX-4K is Cobalt’s latest generation of image and audio processors for the openGear platform. The base card provides quad 3G-SDI and 12G-SDI I/O with SDI muxing and demuxing and up/down/cross-conversion. Options include RGB colour correction and SDR-to-HDR up-mapping via Technicolor’s HDR Intelligent Tone Management (ITM) processing.
Also on display at BroadcastAsia 2018 will be Cobalt’s new 9971-MV18-4K series of openGear multiviewers. These multiviewers reportedly support the latest signal types with a high-density modular design that can be expanded as required. The MV18 is equipped with 18 4K 12G-SDI auto-detect inputs, which can be scaled as needed across a full 3840 x 2160 UHD raster output.
The new Cobalt Digital OG-PC is an x86 computer on an openGear card. The OG-PC takes advantage of the redundant power and cooling features of the openGear frame. Meanwhile, its modular form factor saves on rack space by replacing bulky 1-RU PCs. This new product will be on display at BroadcastAsia2018.
Cobalt’s 9902-UDX-DSP-CI Channel Integrator, a 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS up/down/cross-converter, provides the signal-conversion and processing tool set required to conform input analogue and digital audio and video signals and their associated metadata to meet content- and channel-delivery requirements. Enhanced video processing includes broadcast-quality up/down/cross-conversion with noise reduction and detail enhancement. Standards conversion between 50 hertz and 59.94/60 hertz-based video standards makes the 9902-UDX-DSP-CI perfect for rentals and international signal aggregators and distributors in the OTA, cable, DBS, and OTT markets. Channel Integrator audio features include analogue and AES audio embedding and de-embedding with multiple mixers and per-channel delay. Optional Linear Acoustic upmixing, Dolby decoding and encoding (E, AC-3, E-AC-3), and Dolby Real-Time Loudness Leveling (RTLL) make the Channel Integrator a single point of command and control for the toughest audio-processing jobs, the release stated.
At BroadcastAsia 2018, Cobalt will exhibit its new system that combines frame-accurate SCTE 104 trigger (FAST) insertion with enhanced HLS SCTE 35 streaming on a single platform. Built for the openGear terminal gear platform, the FAST-Stream system is a solution for providing baseband SDI signals and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) streams with frame-accurate boundary points, complete with the SCTE 35 metadata contained in the associated manifest file.
