OB Firm High End TV Equips With Cobalt 4K HDR

High End TV has bought Cobalt Digital’s card-based platform for 4K HDR Multiviewer and HDR conversion solutions for install in its newest truck.

Symphony – the truck - will be rolling out with Cobalt’s 4K in and 4K out 9971-MV6-4K Multiviewer and 9904-UDX-4K HDR processor on board.

“People want 4K and they want HDR,” said Adam Mills, High End TV’s president. “Cobalt’s 4K HDR Multiviewer solution also has TSL protocol and HDMI built-in on the same card making it the perfect product to drive what I'd say is the best monitor wall in existence. This truck is built to be future-proof first and foremost, and capable of shoots with full 4K throughput. Cobalt makes that possible.”

Mills also noted that the 9971-MV6-4K allows users to view the monitor wall in full-resolution even if the production isn’t being shot in 4K, a feature he particularly likes.

“You can have a 4K consumer monitor coming out of the HDMI with 1080p inputs and a quarter of that screen shows you all 1080p lines. Once you see it, everything else just looks blurry,” he explained.
