Cobalt Digital Intro Card-Based Dual-Channel Timecode Burn-in Inserter
Cobalt Digital (Booth N4624) is displaying a dual-channel timecode burn-in inserter. The card, part of Cobalt’s COMPASS line, is suited for control rooms, mobile-production trucks, postproduction applications, and any application that requires visibility of video-material timecode.
The 9392 dual-channel timecode burn-in inserter allows individual RS-485 LTC inputs to be burned onto two respective, independent SDI video streams. The card can burn timecode and up to 16 characters of static text onto program video. An independent, per-channel failover/manual-select function provides for a user-selectable flat-field to replace program video either as a manual selection or on loss of input video. The generated flat field can be timed to input video or to a frame reference signal. Timecode burn-in and text can be sized and positioned anywhere in the active video area using easy-to-use positioning controls.
A single-channel unit, the 9391 card, is also available.
