"One of the reasons we were so attracted to Cobalt's cards is that they incorporate the award-wining Linear Acoustic Aeromax algorithm in a space-saving modular card that integrates with our terminal gear. The cards offer the same functionality that traditionally required gear occupying up to five RUs."


Cobalt Digital was awarded “Best of Show” at IBC 2014 for the 9970-QS Quint Split openGear® card. The 9970-QS is a five screen video processor/multi-viewer, with UMD, Tally, Source ID, Timecode, Scaling and up to 16 channels of audio metering. At IBC, Cobalt displayed the ability to cascade several cards therefore providing multiple PiP muxing. Possible to install up to twenty cards in a single HPF-9000 openGear® frame.

The French Open winds down this weekend and with it Cobalt Digital’s role as a key provider of 3Gbps-capable openGear digital processing and distribution equipment for VER (Video Equipment Rentals), the provider of production facilities for the U.S. broadcasters on site at Rolland Garros in Paris.


Cobalt Digital a manufacturer of award-winning 3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion gear, has promoted Jesse Foster to Product Manager in addition to his current responsibilities as Western Area Sales Manager.  Bob McAlpine, svp of North America sales, announced Foster’s appointment today from headquarters in Urbana, IL.

Jesse Foster talks with the Broadcast Show at NAB 2014 about Cobalt Digital's exciting products.

Cobalt Digital’s booth at NAB 2014 was headlined by a unique quad-split card for OpenGear in sports trucks and control rooms, which allows users to move frames around the display at will — rather than the traditional four-quadrant split.


On speaking with end-users and current customers, Cobalt Digital determined a vital need for a multi-featured 3G/HD/SD-SDI Quad Split Video Processor (Multi-viewer). The new Cobalt® 9970-QS integrates four discrete 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs onto a single 3G/HD/SD-SDI quad-split output, with each input image being correspondingly assigned to a quadrant of the output image area. Each PIP input is provided its independent framesync, allowing asynchronous inputs to be accommodated without external framesync being required.
