Provides eight (total) AES pair BNC connections that can be GUI-configured as inputs or outputs. Independent SRC for all AES inputs, with auto and manual bypass for non-PCM data.
Provides LTC input/output and bi-directional conversion between VBI and LTC on RS-485 or any audio I/O.
Provides one or two fiber connections per card. Inputs can serve any function in the product, outputs can be assigned from any function in the card. Connector type is dual LC with blind-mate connectors. Cards are fully swappable.
Provides an analog video input and output (CVBS, component, RGB (sync on green))
Provides up to eight channels (total) of balanced analog audio inputs and outputs
Provides wings insertion using an independent SDI input provided for wings signal. Provides programmable insertion width.
Provides keying using independent SDI inputs for key and fill signals. Chroma key region can be defined using manual controls or an Auto-Detect function. A separate preview SDI output is provided for observing key results before applying to program video output.
Provides independent RGB channel controls for luma, black, and gamma. Ultra-fast response time. The color correction feature is perfectly suited for use with Cobalt OGCP-9000/CC Remote Control Panel.
Featuring Linear Acoustic® AEROMAX™ technology and available in 5.1-channel (LP51) and stereo (LP20) configurations. These loudness processors use inputs from any source received by the card, or any mixing setting produced by the card. AEROMAX™ algorithms use a sophisticated multi-band approach to loudness processing, and can apply multi-faceted loudness correction specifically targeted to various frequency ranges and other characteristics within the program material, resulting in audio free from abrupt loudness or image shifts while preserving more of the original content than previously possible.
Cobalt’s +LM audio loudness metering option (in conjunction with a Cobalt OGCP-9000 Remote Control Panel with +LM-P option) provides a flexible solution for ingest or on-air loudness metering and assessment in compliance with ITU/ATSC/EBU standards. Easy to use, the +LM offers “true peak” level detection, error tracking and logging, and intuitive interface with touch screen control.
Featuring Linear Acoustic® UPMAX™ technology, upmixing allows legacy stereo program content to be converted to full 5.1-channel audio. UPMAX™ mode detects 2.0 content and automatically applies upmix mode (with configurable switchover fade-in/fade-out) depending on absence or presence of 5.1 source audio.
Up to two upmixers may be configured on the card, order as +UMA and +UMB.
Decodes Dolby encoded streams from AES or embedded sources. Full metadata support; both SMPTE 2020 and serial.
Provides full assortment of Dolby® Digital/Digital Plus encoding formats with multiple stream encoding – all on the same card. Uses any combination of audio sources supported by the card (including mixed, upmixed, and loudness processed signals). Encode using internal metadata selections with a full complement of encoding formats and bit rates, as well as from serial or VBI external metadata.Contact sales for information about multiple simultaneous encodes.
Provides Dolby® E encoding from any combination of audio sources supported by the card (including mixed and loudness controlled signals). Full metadata support using internally generated or external metadata via SMPTE 2020 or serial.
Cobalt Digital 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.
