NAB NY 2018: Cobalt Headlines Line of UHD, SD Converters
9904-UDX-4K-12G UHD 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI Up/Down/Cross-Converter
At the 2018 NAB Show New York, Cobalt 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-12G 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 mixing and demixing 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 the 2018 NAB Show New York 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.
9992-ENC-4K-HEVC H.265 UHD Streaming Encoder
The 2018 NAB Show New York will be the stage for Cobalt’s 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.
OG-PC Computer Card
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. Meanwhile, the card’s modular form factor saves on rack space by replacing bulky 1RU PCs. This new product will be on display at the 2018 NAB Show New York.
9914DA-4Q-12G Distribution Amplifier
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.
