Enhanced video processing on the cards15 September 2017
The 9902-UDX-DSP-CI Channel Integrator, a 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS up/down/cross-converter from Cobalt Digital, is being showcased.
It provides the signal conversion and processing tool set required to conform analogue and digital audio and video input signals and their associated metadata to meet content and channel delivery requirements.
Enhanced video processing includes broadcast-quality up/down/cross-conversion with noise reduction and detail enhancement. Standards conversion between 50Hz and 59.94/60Hz-based video standards makes the device perfect for rentals and international signal aggregators and distributors in the OTA, cable, DBS and OTT markets, said the company.
Channel Integrator audio features include analogue and AES audio embedding and de-embedding with multiple mixers and per-channel delay. Optional Linear Acoustic upmixing, Dolby decoding and encoding (E, AC-3,E-AC-3), and Dolby
Real-Time Loudness Leveling make the Channel Integrator a single point of command and control for audio processing jobs.
Also on display at IBC2017 is Cobalt’s new 9971-MV-4K Series UHD multiviewers with 12G-SDI support. The 3840×2160 output is available via 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 concurrently, reportedly making them a cost-effective means of using professional and widely available consumer-grade 4K monitors.
For ‘maximum flexibility in system design’, two models are available. The 9971-MV6-4K accepts six 12G-SDI inputs, with an order-time option to add four HDMI 2.0 inputs to the mix. For larger system requirements, the 9971-MV18-4K supports up to 18 12G-SDI inputs and will drive two independent UHD display outputs.
