Top gear for openGear11 September 2016
On display at IBC2016 is a new series of compact 3G/HD/SD-SDI multi-rate router cards for openGear. Designed to complement Cobalt’s range of terminal gear solutions, these modular router cards are available in 12×4, 12×12, and 24×24 configurations for
3G-SDI requirements. The 12×4 matrix is also available in a 12G-SDI version
Cobalt Digital is also presenting the 9415-SFP Series, a set of dual-path fibre transport video cards with an external SFP cage on the rear module. This arrangement, said the company, allows the user to pull an openGear card out from the front of the chassis while keeping the SFP and cabling in place.
The user can also hot-swap the SFP module from the rear for maintenance or to repurpose the card for different signal types. This flexible SFP design supports 3G/HD/SD-SDI single-channel, dual-channel and transceiver modes.
Additionally, on display at IBC is the new 9934-AUD-PRO. This card represents the next generation of Cobalt’s 3G/HD/SD-SDI AES/analogue audio embedder/de-embedder, offering advanced mixing, loudness processing and Dolby integration.
