Cobalt Showcases New 9971 Series UHD Multiviewers

The multiviewers range from six To 18 asynchronous 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs and provide 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 outputs at up to full 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution.

Cobalt Digital will introduce the new 9971 series UHD multiviewers for openGear that provide a wide range of I/O configurations with respect to signal count, signal type, and signal interface options. The multiviewer base unit handles six asynchronous 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI signals at the input stage and provides simultaneous 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 outputs at up to full 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution. In addition to enabling flexible configuration, the units increase the pixel space available to source signals while maintaining as much original picture information as possible.

The 9971-MV18-4K supports up to 18 12G-SDI inputs and, like the aforementioned versions, can be cascaded with to create a larger system. The new 9971-MV6-4K-IP and 9971-MV18-4K-IP multiviewers both feature dual 10GigE SFP+ cages. By default, both versions support one 3G/HD-SDI input and output over SMPTE ST 2110 or ST 2022-6 IP standards. Additional de-encapsulator and encapsulator licenses are available. 

Company officials said that Cobalt plans to release the +DUAL license, which will enable a second fully independent output over 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0.
