Cobalt Digital’s Fusion3D Cards Now Feature Dolby Digital Plus Processing
Cobalt Digital has added Dolby Digital Plus processing to the new Fusion3G range of cards for openGear. Dolby Digital Plus allows access to more content and delivers the superior surround sound audio quality associated with Blu-ray Disc, HD broadcast, and streamed and downloaded media.
The addition of Dolby Digital Plus positions Cobalt’s Fusion3G 9900 card as a fully-featured audio processor offering Dolby E and AC-3 encoding and decoding, loudness processing via AeroMax technology, and up-mixing (UpMax technology) using Linear Acoustic audio processing. The new Fusion3G range provides the complete audio solution to end-users with its universal I/O capability to support analog audio, AES, embedded / de-embedded HD/SDI and this new range of cards. Fusion3G cards also offer Cobalt’s audio loudness metering and monitoring, audio shuffling and audio channel mixing.
“This new Fusion3G card provides the answers to today’s TV Broadcasting audio environment,” says Chris Shaw, Cobalt Digital VP of Sales. “Audio has become more complex and it is our plan to provide a single card that addresses all of its current challenges as well as those that arise as technology evolves. Because there is no requirement to purchase all options up front the Fusion3G card offers economic future proofing to any end-user.”
