Closed Captioning Compliance

Cobalt offers numerous SDI and transport models that check for the presence of CEA708/608 closed-captioning, as well as the string content text. Alerts can be integrated into facility automation via GPO, serial, and automatically generated log files.

Easy to use and integrate, we offer several openGear® solutions for closed captioning presence/absence detect, with GPO and email notification. These solutions are available on several card models as base functions or as options along with other functions.

+QC Quality Check Option (with CC absence/presence check)

As option +QC, closed captioning presence or absence is detected on SDI streams, with the card or device generating an event action upon CC presence or absence. This event action writes to a log file and can be used for automation actions such as GPO. +QC option is available for the following models.
