New Cobalt 9905-MPx Card Provides Quad Path 3G HD SD, to Offer Unprecedented Multi-Input Support and Flexibility

Cobalt® Digital, an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of award-winning edge devices for live video production and master control, and a founding partner in the openGear® initiative has announced the launch of its 9905-MPx 3G/HD/SD Quad-Path Up/Down/Cross Converter/Frame Sync, a next-generation advanced scaler/frame synchronizer for the openGear platform. The new card was developed in direct response to customer requests for one module that supports four independent signal paths.

“Cobalt has been building products since 1997 based not only on current industry demand, but also by anticipating requirements driven by emerging technologies,” stated Chris Shaw, Cobalt’s Senior Vice President of sales and marketing. “This time the customers asked for increased density, unprecedented multi-input support, and enhanced flexibility, and we happily complied with the 9905-MPx.”

Based on the architecture of Cobalt’s 9904-UDX, the 9905-MPx incorporates many of the award-winning card’s capabilities - such as support for all popular formats: 480i, 576i, 720p, 1080i, 1080pSF, 1080p - but features functionality that sets it apart from any other Up/Down/Cross Converter/Frame Sync/Embed/De-Embed Audio Processor on the market. The 9905-MPx provides four independent signal paths of UDX / frame sync / audio embedding and de-embedding on a single openGear card. This multi-path design offers four channels per card with flexible AES and MADI embed/de-embed for each path. When used with Cobalt’s HPF-9000 20-slot chassis, this provides up to 24 channels (6 cards) of processing in a single frame, representing a new level of openGear packaging density and resulting in unprecedented multi-input support and flexibility.

Each independent path has 3D-LUT, ANC bridge (insert/extract Timecode Proc, CC Proc) UDX Up/Down/Cross Conversion, Frame Sync, Trouble Slate/Logo import/insert as standard – All economically priced.

The unit’s independent up/down/cross convert scalers are specifically designed for broadcast video formats, with full ARC control suitable for conversions to or from 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. Discrete AES and MADI audio embedding/routing/mixing/de-embedding to any of four processing paths is supported. Color correction and 3D LUT functions provide accommodation of SDR and HDR processing for downstream HDR systems.

Card control/monitoring is available via a DashBoard user interface or Cobalt’s RESTful-based Reflex protocol. The 9905-MPx can be software-converted to a 4K Quad-Link Input SDM/2SI 4K UDX/Frame Sync card with an optional software license.

Like many Cobalt cards, the 9905-MPx offers peace-of-mind via the Company’s five-year warranty.

Alpha Sound Selects DPA for Famed Cathedral AV Overhaul Posted: 21/04/2021
Alpha Sound Selects DPA for Famed Cathedral AV Overhaul

St. Mary’s Cathedral is one of the most popular and beautiful Catholic churches in the Portland area. It serves as its parish’s diocese, hosting weekly masses, services and sometimes daily visits for a large, devoted congregation. The church needed to ensure its audio-visual equipment could convey its important messages in a smooth, intelligible manner—something that was previously lacking due its domed cathedral and marble walls. When it came time for an AV upgrade, St. Mary’s turned to Alpha Sound, a leading AV installer in the Pacific Northwest. With 40 years’ experience, the Alpha Sound team was ready to tackle the live acoustical issues at the cathedral while also choosing equipment that would not impede the church’s elegant décor. To accomplish this, the installer selected more than 20 mics from DPA Microphones, the largest DPA install to-date in the area.

Mo-Sys takes virtual production to a truer focus Posted: 20/04/2021
Mo-Sys takes virtual production to a truer focus

Mo-Sys Engineering, world leader in precision camera tracking solutions for virtual production, has solved a major creative limitation when using an LED volume for virtual production. Cinematographers who needed to pull focus between real foreground objects – such as actors – and virtual objects displayed on an LED wall – such as a car - have been unable to do this as the lens focal plane stops at the LED wall, meaning the car always remains out of focus.
