Cobalt Digital unveils dual-channel timecode burn-in inserter
Cobalt Digital has revealed plans to debut its 3G/HD/SD-SDI Dual-Channel Timecode Burn-In Inserter. Chris Shaw, Cobalt’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, announced from company headquarters in Urbana, IL, that the 9392 single-card solution will be at IBC 2012 alongside new technologies.
The 3G/HD/SD-SDI compatible 9392 allows individual RS-485 LTC inputs to be burned onto two independent SDI video streams, and up to 16 characters of static text onto program video. Setup and operation are easily achieved via software control GUI and Cobalt’s OGCP-9000 remote control panel. Program video can be selected and replaced either manually per-channel, or via an independent failover flat-field function upon loss of input. The generated flat field can be timed to match input format, or be set to provide any of several outputs. Timecode burn-in and text can be sized and positioned anywhere in the active video area using positioning controls.
In addition, the 9392 includes a 3×4 SDI output crosspoint, with SDI out A (channel A), SDI out B (channel B), or reclocked SDI in A routable to up to 4 SDI outputs. A 9391 single channel unit is also available.
Chris Shaw, EVP of sales & marketing stated, “Cobalt’s product line is comprised of practical and economical solutions developed in response to market demand, and more specifically, our customers’ requirements. They tell us what they need – and want – to get the job done, and we deliver reliable products that address their challenges efficiently at a reasonable price point.
“The 9392 is yet another example. We’ve had numerous requests for a card-based dual channel timecode inserter from OB companies, studios, and post-production facilities and are happy to launch a module to suit their exact requirements,” concluded Shaw.
At IBC, Cobalt will also present a complement of products including LMNTS, for comprehensive transport-based loudness processing; SpotCheck, a transport stream compliance monitor; the new Blue Box Group series of throw-down conversion modules, a new range of MADI cards including Embedder/De-embedder (with 192 x 192 crosspoint switch) and MADI DA, and both physical (OGCP-9000 and OGCP-9000/CC optimized for color correction) and virtual remote control panels.
Cobalt Digital’s entire range of conversion products will be demonstrated at IBC Stand 10.B27.
