Fast fibre cards make debut

Visitors to IBC2016 are the first to see Cobalt Digital’s new 9991-SDI-to-IP-10GE and 9991-IP-to-SDI-10GE Series cards for the openGear platform. These 3G/HD/SD-SDI SMPTE 2022-6 encapsulators and de-encapsulators offer AES/analogue audio embedding and de-embedding, and they interface to 10GigE equipment over fibre.

Also new are the 9433-EMDE Series openGear fibre-optic audio embedder and de-embedder products, which will be available in a single-channel, unidirectional EO/OE configuration and a dual-channel, bidirectional EOOE transport solution.

The latter version will provide bidirectional extension of two 3G/HD/SD-SDI video signals and multiple analogue and AES audio signals over two fibres. When paired with the +DT licensing option, the card set will also provide bidirectional serial data and GPIO connectivity, which
can be used for remote PTZ camera control and signal backhaul.

Also on show is the new 9410DA Series of 3G/HD/SD-SDI single-channel, dual-channel and transceiver fibre cards, which provide up to 40 channels of 3G/HD/SD-SDI extension in two rack units. Even with such high signal density, the 9410 card modules include several distribution amplifier outputs on both the transmit and receive sides of the link, said the company.

New tools to assist in monetising content are also on show, including the new +SCTE104-FAST option that adds frame-accurate DPI trigger insertion to openGear and BBG-1000 series of audio, video and data signal processors.
