openGear, the industry standard platform of choice
openGear is an open-architecture, modular frame system designed by Ross Video and supported by a diverse range of terminal equipment manufacturers. The platform offers the freedom to choose technology from a wide range of products to meet the needs of a broadcast, production, or distribution facility while maintaining a compatible openGear frame infrastructure.
The OG3 openGear frame offers remote control & monitoring with the combination of the MFC-8322-N network interface card, and DashBoard application. This offering allows users to remotely monitor and control parameters on openGear modules that…Read more
The all-new, multi-award winning Cobalt® 9970-QS 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS Quint-Split Multi-Image Expandable Display Processor integrates five discrete 3G/HD/SD-SDI or CVBS inputs onto a single 3G/HD/SD-SDI quint-split output, with each input image being flexibly inserted into the output image area.
While the 9970-QS offers unprecedented flexibility, it also offers an unprecedented ease of use. Fully-flexible layouts using any of several one-button template presets or fully customizable layouts using easy to use sizing/positioning custom controls. Custom layouts can be saved to user presets. Any template layout or custom layout changes can be done “on-the-fly” in real time, without tedious setup compiler or layout programs like many other split/multiviewer products.
Multiple 9970-QS cards can be cascaded to provide splits greater than the base quint-split. The 9970-QS PIP5 input can be used in a cascaded chain of 9970-QS cards that provides multiviewer layouts of up to 8×8 (64:1). The QuickSet grid definer precisely and easily sets up a multiviewer grid where columns and rows of each of the cards PIPs are arranged to work together in a cascaded aggregate arrangement. Low-latency processing allows multiple 9970-QS cards to be cascaded without significant accumulated delays within the chain.
Advanced graphics such as user identify text, PiP input video format, audio meter bars, tally/UMD, reticules, and timecode can be burned into any PiP with full user attributes control. CEA 608 Ch1 text strings can serve as user text overlays, allowing direct closed captioning presence/quality compliance checks for up to 5 simultaneous video streams per card. User-configurable Quality Check allows subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame or audio silence events to propagate an on-screen alarm/alert to the output image (such as alert text burn-in or border alert highlighting).
A master output up-down-cross convert scaler provides scale-to HD or 3G SDI formats for the combined multiviewer output, which also includes an HDMI output (with audio embedding) to directly feed a wall monitor.
The openGear® card-based form factor of the 9970-QS provides scalable, easily integrated multi-image functions for the 20-slot frame form factor with easy to use DashBoard™ remote control. Each PiP input is provided its own independent timing alignment controls with lock to reference, allowing asynchronous inputs to be directly accommodated.
Full user DashBoard™ or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network. Tally can be communicated by GPI, Ethernet, or serial interfaces.

The all-new Cobalt® 9960-TG2-REF1 3G/HD/SD-SDI Dual Test Signal Generator with Bouncing Box Active Signal Indication, Bi-Level Sync Out, and Embedded ANC Data Signal Generator offers an easy to use, economical solution to providing comprehensive test signal packages to ensure validity of downstream baseband SDI systems. The 9960-TG2-REF1 is an unprecedented first in the high-density openGear® based card form factor. Two independent generator blocks can be set to offer dual test packages which can be simultaneously outputted or selectively fed to a single downstream path via a 2×4 output crosspoint.
Input 4K Ultra-HD HEVC, AVC or MPEG 2 and transcode to AVC or MPEG 2. Container support includes MPEG 2 Transport Streams, ISO 14496 base media file format (BMFF) and raw Elementary streams on both the inputs and outputs. Resolution, bit rate, CODEC and container adaptation are supported. Contact T-21 with your transcode, transrate or container adaptation requirements.
Push media directly to your network with the T9261-OG3. Ideal for serving other T9261-OG3 or software decoder applications.
Decode and output real 4K (4096 x 2160) or Ultra-HD (UHD at 3840 x 2160) to broadcast or consumer displays.
Decode, downscale or upscale to 1080P, 1080i, 720P, NTSC or PAL via industry standard 3GSDI interface. The T9261-OG3 includes one rear panel high density (HD) BNC connector.
(3GSDI is disabled when 4K or Ultra-HD screen formats are configured)
Serious IT Interfaces
Standard ethernet interfaces include two (2) Gigabit interfaces with hardware acceleration. The T-21 platforms dual interfaces facilitate bridging public and private networks and isolating stream and management traffic. One Ethernet interface is connected to the openGEAR controller board using its built in with and the second Gigabit Ethernet port is rear panel accessible.
Optional miniPCIe Wireless LAN and Cellular cards expand the IT IO to support untethered streaming, command and control.
One front side USB 2.0 interface is available for external media or firmware updates.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is standard in the information technology (IT) industry. Not only is SNMP standard and available for external SNMP client management, T-21 develops its own HTML 5.0 based UI accessing the same SNMP MIBS. This approach ensures the SNMP MIBS are tested, robust and reliable.
The T9261-OG3 requires only one-slot in the 20-slot openGEAR chassis. It boasts a very low power footprint using less than 12 watts.
