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 9223 Dual-Channel 3G/HD/SD MPEG-4 Encoder provides a card-based solution for distribution of MPEG-4 encoding. Utilizing the openGear® open-architecture platform, the 9223 offers scalable incorporation and the easy-to-use DashBoard™ setup and control operator interface. Up to 10 of the 9223 cards can be installed in a 20-slot frame, offering distribution delivery of up to 20 individual or simulcast channels in a single frame, using less than 150W total, for reduced operating expenses. In addition to SD/HD-SDI inputs, the 9223 provides the flexibility of supporting SD analog composite video and an analog audio stereo pair per input channel (using MPEG-1 Layer II audio encoding as standard).
The 9223 offers the latest advances in video compression that delivers excellent video quality at very low bit rates. Unique encoding designs allow delivery of multiple HD and SD video services simultaneously. In addition to two ASI outputs, the 9223 provides two Ethernet outputs, supporting full-duplex 100 Mb/s and 1 Gb/s operation. Input video auto-detect mode allows encoding to automatically configure an output that correspond to the input, with resolution and frame rate same as input, and scaling set to same as input or other applicable choices.
When using the Ethernet output, the 9223 supports the traditional UDP/RTP/SPMTE 2022 FEC protocols, as well as the HTTP Live Streaming protocol for transmitting live video over the Internet. Using HTTP Live Streaming, the 9223 can transmit broadcast-quality video to mobile phones (Apple and Android 4.0 supported), tablets, and a variety of consumer set-top boxes (such as the Amino A140 and the Roku Player).
Full user remote monitor/control allows full card status and control access across a standard Ethernet network. Status monitoring is also available at card edge.

The all-new Cobalt® 9415DA-SFP 3G/HD/SD-SDI / ASI / MADI Reconfigurable Video SFP Transceiver/Distribution Amplifier with Full-Flexibility Crosspoint and Externally-Accessible SFP Module provides a card-based solution for high-density conversions between coax SDI/ASI, fiber, HDMI, and MADI. With an externally-accessible SFP cage on the card rear module, SFP modules can be easily hot-swapped for maintenance or card repurposing. Because all connections are direct to the card rear module and external SFPs, all cabling remains undisturbed for card removal/installation.
A crosspoint (which is user-configurable via DashBoard™ remote control) allows the card to apply any of the card inputs to various coax DA outputs as well as up to 2 Rx and Tx paths through the external SFP. Up to 10 coaxial DA outputs are available per each card. Using a high-density split rear module, up to 20 cards can be installed in a frame, providing 40 channels of conversion.
The card accepts non-MSA video SFP modules, with single and dual-channel Tx and Rx modules available, supporting an extensive range of electrical/coax and fiber conversions. Excellent receive performance allows coaxial receive EQ for up to 110m 3G, 180m HD, and 360m SD cable length (1694A). Full user DashBoard™ or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network.

The 9941-RTR series offer built-in Ethernet ports, as well as multiple serial and GPIO control interfaces. Also supported are easy-to-use JSON-based ReFLEX, SNMP, and third-party router protocols that allow for easy integration with A/V control and automation systems. GUI choices include an integrated HTML-5 Web server and support for the DashBoard™ control system, allowing users to design custom control panels that provide the most intuitive remote control and monitoring interfaces possible. DashBoard user matrix provides easy to use manual routing setup.
The 9941-RTR integrates perfectly with other advanced Cobalt products such as our 9970-QS Expandable Multiviewer with Advanced On-Screen Graphics cards. This synergy provides a dynamically reconfigurable, nonblocking 20 x 4 multiviewer, with configurations of four independent 5 x 1 multiviewers all the way up to a 17-window system – or any number of intermediate cascade combinations.
Full user DashBoard™ and Remote Control Panel remote control allows full setup, status, and local control across a standard Ethernet network.
