Cobalt Digital Releases a Next-Gen Scaler and Frame Sync

The scaler and frame synchronizer uses advanced HD/UHD processing and Technicolor HDR Intelligent Tone Management (ITM) to greatly simplify the ongoing use of existing content libraries.

“The 9904 series is based on the latest system-on-chip technology — exactly what HDR ITM was designed to run on — so the partnership of Technicolor and Cobalt Digital is a perfect match from the start,” said Bob McAlpine, CEO of Cobalt Digital. The 9904-UDX-4K-IP is being deployed in a wide range of applications and can process HD and UHD signals, converting between the two formats.

The 9904-UDX-4K-IP upconverts 6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI to either UHD1 3840 x 2160 Square Division (SDQS) or Two Sample Interleave (2SI) quad 3G-SDI-based formats. The card can output SMPTE ST 2082 12G-SDI signals for single-wire 4K transport. In the downconverter mode, using its 12G-SDI and quad 3G-SDI inputs, the unit can also perform the reverse processes.

Four bidirectional AES ports support embedding and de-embedding. The 9904-UDX-4K-IP features dual 10GigE Ethernet ports that support emerging uncompressed video/audio/data over IP standards including AES67, SMPTE ST 2022-6, and SMPTE ST 2110. The 9904-UDX-4K-IP also features optional 3D-LUT conversion and supports third-party Wowow and Pomfort color-grading software GUIs.
