Cobalt Digital Presents FAST-Stream OTT Streaming Encoder at IBC 2017

​Making its debut at IBC2017 is a new Cobalt system that combines frame-accurate SCTE 104 trigger (FAST) insertion with enhanced HLS SCTE 35 streaming on a single platform. Also at IBC Cobalt’s Advanced Audio Processor, 9934-AUD-PRO 3G/HD/SD-SDI, and their 9902-UDX-DSP-CI Channel Integrator and Distribution Amplifier.

FAST-Stream OTT

Built for the openGear terminal gear platform, the FAST-Stream system is a comprehensive solution for providing baseband SDI signals and HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) streams with frame-accurate boundary points, complete with the SCTE 35 metadata contained in the associated manifest file. Applications range from URL address insertion for targeted ad replacement to embedded DRM for distributing protected content. The FAST-STREAM OTT system interfaces with automation and uses timestamps to insert metadata frame-accurately into baseband SDI before encoding the stream in high-quality H.264 for meeting sophisticated digital program insertion (DPI) delivery requirements in real time.

9934-AUD-PRO 3G/HD/SD-SDI Advanced Audio Processor

Cobalt's latest broadcast-audio processor will be on display at IBC2017. The AUD-PRO represents the ultimate in integrated audio processing and encoding and is built on Cobalt's award-winning and widely deployed 3G/HD/SD-SDI Analog and AES Audio Embedder/De-embedder. The hardware supports multiple accelerated DSP features that can be added in the field, including Linear Acoustic UPMAX upmixing and Dolby E, AC-3, and E-AC-3 decoding and encoding. Adding Dolby Real-Time Loudness Leveling (RTLL) makes the AUD-PRO a complete broadcast-audio processing solution.

9902-UDX-DSP-CI Channel Integrator

Cobalt's 9902-UDX-DSP-CI Channel Integrator, a 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS up/down/cross-converter provides the signal conversion and processing tool set required to conform input analog and digital audio and video signals and their associated metadata to meet sophisticated content- and channel-delivery requirements.

9902-UDX-DSP-CI Channel Integrator

9902-UDX-DSP-CI Channel Integrator

Enhanced video processing includes broadcast-quality up/down/cross-conversion with noise reduction and detail enhancement. Standards conversion between 50 hertz and 59.94/60 hertz-based video standards makes the 9902-UDX-DSP-CI perfect for rentals and international signal aggregators and distributors in the OTA, cable, DBS, and OTT markets. Channel Integrator audio features include analog and AES audio embedding and de-embedding with multiple mixers and per-channel delay. Optional Linear Acoustic upmixing, Dolby decoding and encoding (E, AC-3, E-AC-3), and Dolby Real-Time Loudness Leveling (RTLL) make the Channel Integrator a single point of command and control for the toughest audio-processing jobs.

BBG-DA-12G-1X6 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI/ASI/MADI UHD Throwdown Distribution Amplifier

Cobalt will introduce the new BBG-DA-12G-1X6 brick form-factor UHD distribution amplifier to the European market at IBC2017. With its superb cable-length performance of 100 meters over Belden 1694 cable at 12G-SDI, the unit is a problem-solving tool. The 12G-SDI reclocking capability makes this distribution amplifier unit a great inline repeater for problematic cable runs or third-party equipment, and it can be powered via the included power supply or USB. When connected to the included BBGConfig USB monitoring and control software, the unit will display an eye-pattern view that can assist with basic troubleshooting.
