IBC 2010: Cobalt Targets Loudness Control with New Range of Fusion3G Cards
At IBC 2010, Cobalt Digital (Stand 8.A94) will address Loudness Processing and Metering issues with the launch of their new range of 3G-capable Fusion3G cards for openGear for the first time in Europe. Remote control is quick and easy with the free DashBoard remote control software, the award-winning OGCP-9000 remote control panels, or optional SNMP agent software for openGear frames. HD/SD-SDI versions of the Fusion range are also available. The openGear format handles cards from multiple manufacturers in the same frame.
Fusion3G cards are multi-functional, multi-featured cards that offer solutions to all signal processing challenges like Loudness Processing, Audio Loudness Metering, Dolby Encode and Decode, Colour Correction, Fibre Transmit and Receive, and Up/Down/Cross Conversion with all the features of Cobalt’s popular 9000 Compass series. Inputs and outputs include analogue video and audio, HD/SD-SDI video & audio, and Fibre.
The 9985 Loudness Processor with Frame Sync helps to ensure broadcast compliance with regulatory standards (ATSC A/85 and ITU BS.1770).
Fusion3G 9985 Loudness Processing cards use Linear Acoustic AEROMAX technology, which provides a sophisticated multiband approach, specifically targeting frequency ranges and other characteristics within the program material to achieve multifaceted correction. The resulting audio remains free from abrupt loudness or image shifts while preserving more of the original content than ever previously possible.
The 9985 is 3-D TV compliant 1080p. Available base models provide 5.1, Stereo, or Dual Stereo Loudness Processing in various combinations as options.
The 9085, from the established 9000 Compass series, offers Loudness Processing capability and supports HD/SD-SDI. The 9085 maintains multiple processes, although only one process can be operated at a time.
The 9985/9085 Loudness Processing cards combined with Cobalt’s +LM Loudness Metering option and OGCP-9000 Remote Control Panel creates a comprehensive on-air loudness metering, assessment and processing (ATSC A/85 and ITU BS.1770 compliant) solution with LKFS measurement, peak level detection, error tracking and logging, and an intuitive touch screen control interface.
