The all-new Cobalt® 9922-2FS 3G/HD/SD-SDI Dual Channel Framesync with Audio/Video Processing, AES/Analog Audio Embedding/De-Embedding and CVBS I/O offers two signal paths of framesync / audio embedding and de-embedding on a single open-Gear® card. Using the HPF-9000 20-slot frame, this provides up to 40 channels of processing in a single frame. 9922-2FS represents a whole new level of signal processing density in the industry. Powerful options like +COLOR RGB Color Correction make the 9922-2FS the densest channel per rack unit terminal gear module on the market across a wide range of product types.
Advanced framesync features include per-channel audio delay, audio/video offset, and output rate conversion to and from 23.98/29.97/29.94 to 24/30/60 frame rates. Frame sync can select from multiple reference inputs, with failover to alternate selected sources. Each path can independently use either of two frame references or internal reference.
Audio embed adaptive SRC allows asynchronous 48 kHz AES audio to automatically sync with program video 48 kHz timing for glitch-free embedding. Individual, per-pair SRC auto-detects and disables SRC when a Dolby pair is detected on an input pair. Bulk and per-channel audio delay controls easily address lip-sync issues.
A convenient input crosspoint with RP168 clean switching can select from up to four SDI inputs to be applied to either of the card’s two processing paths. The input crosspoint allows manual selection of input via remote control or GPIO, or failover to alternate inputs on loss of input conditions. For each path, two discrete character burn strings can be inserted on output video, with each string inserted as static text and/or insert only upon LOS. Moving-box insertion can be enabled to serve as a dynamic raster confidence check even when the input video image is static. Included standard is closed captioning absence/presence detection that allows CEA 608/708 and line 21 SD CC absence or presence to be detected.
With option +ANC, the 9902-UDX offers full VANC/HANC ancillary data packet de-embedding and embedding for 3G/HD/SD-SDI streams. The easy to use interface allows direct access to DID and SDID locations to extract or insert user data such as camera PTZ, SCTE 104, closed-captioning read/insert, GPI/GPO via ANC, or other specialized user payloads. Data can be extracted and inserted within the card, (Bridge mode), or inserted and/or extracted to and from external interface via serial or IP interfaces.
The space-saving design of the 9922-2FS provides for high density, allowing two cards to be collocated in adjacent slots and served by a single, standard width “split” rear module. This provides four video paths per each pair of slots, readily providing 20 channels of processing in only 10 slots. Two independent paths with fully independent user delays is perfect for setting up path delays for key/fill video.
Preset save/load allows saving custom card settings while allowing one-button revert to factory settings. Layered presets allow invoking changes related only to a specific area of concern (audio routing, for example) while not changing any other processing settings or aspects. Full user DashBoard™ or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network. GPIO allows direct input routing control and status monitoring.
Cobalt continually develops award-winning, unique solutions, maximizing capacity and packaging economy such as same-card Dolby® E/Dolby® D transcoding, quad-stream independent Dolby® D encoding, full-feature density (such as single-card scaler/framesync and loudness processing), and HDBNC and DIN 1.0/2.3 high-density connectorization. Quality is evident in both engineering design and advanced manufacturing. Unique engineering advances such as glitch-free audio resync are found in our principle frame sync products and event-based automated card setup. Robust manufacturing uses the latest in component advances and multi-layer PCB technology — all backed by our 5-year warranty.
