Cobalt Digital Present New Line-up Of EO/OE 12G Mini-Convertor BBG Boxes At NAB

Cobalt Digital introduce a new series of BlueBox Group (BBG) EO/OE 12G mini-converters at NAB 2022. The line-up consists of five 12G versions that include single and dual coax-to-fiber, single and dual fiber-to-coax, and a coax/fiber transceiver.

Suzana Brady, Cobalt’s SVP of worldwide sales and marketing, noted that the boxes have been developed in response to customer requests for solutions that go further than 3G capabilities. Cobalt, designer and manufacturer of edge devices for live video production and master control, and a founding partner in the openGear initiative, showed the mini converters at NAB.

The BBG line of compact and rugged throw-down converter boxes turn Cobalt openGear cards into portable solutions, ideal for remote production applications. All the units support SMPTE ST2082, ST2081, 424M, 292M and 259M as well as ASI and MADI audio. Error-free pathological pattern operation is fully compatible with other professional fiber video interfaces, and SFP-based EO and OE converters provide state-of-the-art fiber performance, power consumption, and compactness. All BBG modules receive their operating power via a USB connection or by using an AC adapter connection. These power sources can be simultaneously used to provide redundant power sourcing.

In addition to the BBG boxes, Cobalt also highlighted numerous new solutions including +UDX-Dante-16x16 - the industry’s first license-based 12G-SDI bridge to Dante audio, the recently launched Indigo 2110-DC-01SMPTE ST-2110 solution, its line of compression products with a multi-link demo of RIST, and new Technicolor features for reversible inverse tone mapping SDR to HDR that are incorporated into Cobalt products.
