IBC 2018: Cobalt Digital to show new cross-converter and multiviewer
IBC 2018 will see Cobalt Digital highlighting a number of new and recent additions to its product portfolio, including 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 advanced 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 color correction and SDR-to-HDR up-mapping via Technicolor’s HDR Intelligent Tone Management (ITM) processing.
Also on display at IBC2018 will be Cobalt’s new 9971-MV18-4K series of openGear multiviewers. These multiviewers 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 3840×2160 UHD raster output.
Cobalt will also spotlight its new 9992-ENC-4K-HEVC H.265 Streaming Encoder for openGear. The platform supports Quad 3G-SDI and 12G-SDI inputs and is also configurable as a multichannel encoder (up to four channels) for 1080p60 signals and below using MPEG-2, H.264, or HEVC with all channels using the same compression standard.
Meanwhile, the new Cobalt Digital OG-PC is an x86 computer on an openGear card. Representing a unique approach to terminal gear system design, the OG-PC takes full advantage of the redundant power and cooling features of the openGear frame. Its modular form factor saves on rack space by replacing bulky 1-RU PCs.
Finally, Cobalt will introduce the new 9914DA-4Q-12G distribution amplifier designed for SMPTE ST-2082 single wire UHD signal replication and transmission. Similar in design to the popular 9910DA-4Q-3G products, the unit is highly configurable and supports quad 1×4, dual 1×8, or full 1×16 modes of operation.
Cobalt Digital will exhibit at IBC on 10.B44.
