Cobalt Digital To Highlight Significant Advancements at NAB 2015

The Cobalt Digital is set to unveil new processing and convergence products.

At the 2015 NAB Show, Cobalt Digital plans to show 27 new developments in processing and convergence products across three product platforms; the openGear-compatible 2-RU high-capacity Modular Terminal Gear System, the Blue Box Group BBG-1000 line of 1-RU rack-mountable stand-alone systems, and the original Blue Box Group series of miniature standalone converters. In various combinations, these products can provide a wide variety of solutions broadcasters and content producers need every day.

Cobalt Digital products introduced at NAB 2015 contain innovations in ancillary data processing, insertion, extraction, and monitoring; advancements in audio and video processing; and enhancements to DTV/MPEG and fiber-optic offerings.

In the spotlight at the Cobalt Digital exhibit will be products that have evolved with the openGear standard. These include the openGear-Compatible Modular Terminal Gear System including the 9922-2FS dual-channel 3G/HD/SD-SDI framesyncm which supports up to 20 paths of signal synchronization in 2 RU.

The new 9960-TG2-REF1 is a dual-channel 3G/HD/SD-SDI test signal generator with "bouncing box" motion patterns, bi/tri-level sync output, and ancillary timecode generator. The 9980-CSC 3G/HD/SD-SDI color space converter supports real-time RGB color correction for 1080p60 signals. The 9940-4x1-CS is a clean and quiet bypass router providing glitch-free A/V switching with a relay-protected output and GPI/O for monitoring and control.

Cobalt Digital is also showing easy-to-use ancillary data tools with the 9950-EMDE-ANC data embedder/de-embedder and 9978-ANC-MON ancillary data monitor for end-to-end data transmission workflows.

Each of the new products being launched for the openGear-compliant platform will also be available in the popular BBG-1000 configuration. This is a line of stand-alone enclosures with front-panel controls and can be rack-mounted to provide up to three systems in 1 RU. Each device supports the openGear DashBoard control and monitoring application, as well as Web GUI control and monitoring via an integrated HTML5 Web server.
