The Cobalt® 9902-UDX 3G/HD/SD Up-Down-Cross Converter/Frame Sync/Audio Embed-De-Embed with Multi-Input Auto-Changeover provides a high-density card-based solution that offers unprecedented multi-input support and flexibility.
Multi-input, with manual selection or intelligent Auto-Changeover failover
Closed-captioning absence detection and flagging, with GPO, automated alert email, go-to user preset, or other actions
Auto-Changeover can be set to invoke failover for basic input loss. Quality Check option (+QC) provides failover on subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame. Threshold and hold-off are user configurable.
Moving-box/motion insertion enable serves as a dynamic raster confidence check even in cases where the input video image is static
Low-power/high-density design – less than 18 Watts per card
Up/Down/Cross Conversion with user and AFD, VI, and WSS ARC specifically tailored for broadcast video
Supports import of user trouble slate graphic file for LOS failover insertion
Frame Sync with full H/V offset and manual/LOS video pattern generator
Dual independent burn-in text string insertion allows condition-based insertion (such as basic ID text for valid input and different text message for failover conditions)
Option +ANC adds full user VANC/HANC packet insertion/extraction access to DID/SDID ancillary data such as camera PTZ, SCTE 104, closed captioning, and other specialized user payloads.
Option +TTS provides Text-To-Speech synthesis, directly converting EAS text to high-quality digital audio speech with no baseband signal breakouts or add-on units
Full audio crosspoint with delay control and 5.1-to-stereo downmix available for all audio outputs
Timecode processing can prioritize, filter for, and convert between specific SMPTE embedded-video or audio LTC, with output/burn-in timecode using selected format
CVBS analog video I/O and analog/AES embed / de-embed available
3:2 pulldown optimization allows A-frame alignment correlated to received timecode or 6 Hz external input over GPI
Audio options include loudness processing, upmixing, and Dolby decode/encode
Video options include CGMS support, color correction, and keying
Remote control/monitoring via Dashboard™ software or OGCP-9000 remote control panels
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.
