Cobalt To Showcase Latest Fusion3G Products at CCW 2010
Cobalt Digital will show its loudness processing, loudness metering, audio up-mixing, Dolby Encode and Decode, Color Correction, Fiber Transmit and Receive, and Up/Down/Cross Conversion solutions from its 3GB-capable Fusion3G range and 9000 Compass series on Booth 919 at CCW 2010. Both Fusion3G and the Compass line support openGear, the versatile format that handles cards from multiple manufacturers in the same frame.
Cobalt’s 9985 Loudness Processor with Frame Sync ensures broadcast compliance with loudness processing regulatory standards (ATSC A/85 and ITU BS.1770). The 9985 card uses the Linear Acoustic AEROMAX technology that provides a multiband approach, specifically targeting frequency ranges and other characteristics within the program material to achieve multifaceted correction. The resulting audio remains free from abrupt loudness or image shifts while preserving more of the original content. The 9985 is 3D TV compliant 1080p. Available base models provide 5.1, stereo, or dual stereo loudness processing in various combinations as options.
Cobalt is also showing its 9085 Loudness Processer from the 9000 COMPASS series that supports HD/SD-SDI. The 9085 also uses the Linear Acoustic AEROMAX technology and offers the same benefits as the 9985. The card applies loudness control on up to six channels of audio from any embedded, AES, or analog input.
Cobalt’s +LM Audio Loudness Meter software program was developed for use with both the new Fusion3G and 9000 Compass series cards for openGear. It provides a flexible, solution for ingest or on-air loudness metering and assessment. Combine the 9985/9085 Loudness Processing cards with Cobalt’s +LM Loudness Metering option and OGCP-9000 Remote Control Panel for a comprehensive on-air loudness metering, assessment, and processing (ATSC A/85 and ITU BS.1770 compliant) solution with LKFS measurement, true peak level detection, error tracking and logging, and an intuitive touch screen control interface.
The Fusion3G 9901-UDX is a 3GB HD/SD-SDI up/down/cross converter with multiple inputs and outputs, frame synchronization, plus full-embedded audio and ancillary data support with per-channel audio delay. Separate versions are available solely to perform up conversion (9901-UC), down conversion (9901-DC) and 3G/HD to 3G/HD cross conversion (9901-XC); all include 3G/HD/SD pass-through.
The Fusion3G 9931-EMDE base model is a 3G/HD/SD-SDI Embedder / De-Embedder with full embedded audio and ancillary data support. Users may choose among options to add Fiber I/O, analog video I/O, AES and analog I/O embed/de-embed – all on the same module.
The Fusion3G 9921-FS Frame Sync and 9922-DFS Dual Frame Sync are 3G/HD/SD-SDI capable with full embedded audio and ancillary data support. These devices offer accuracy in audio-video delay (lip sync) management, glitch-free per-channel audio delay adjustment, and redundant reference inputs with failover to alternate selected sources.
