“LMNTS success at NAB 2012. Cobalt received awards both from Broadcast Engineering (Pick Hit) and TV Technology (Star Award) for newly launched LMNTS multi-channel loudness processing over IP/ASI"


NEP Broadcasting, the leading international provider of mobile tele-production services, has outfitted its latest launches with a full complement of Cobalt Digital gear to accomplish distribution, conversion and processing in and out of the trucks. 


Cobalt Digital has been recognized for innovation again. The manufacturer of 3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion gear received another STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) – its eighth - from the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at the 2011 IBC convention, this time for its 9257 1x9 MADI (AES10-2003) Audio Distribution Amplifier, developed for the openGear® platform.


Cobalt Digital has expanded remote control choices with the launch of its WinOGCP panel for desktop virtual control of all the Company’s Fusion3G® 9900 and COMPASS® 9000 series signal processing cards.


Cobalt Digital, manufacturer of award-winning 3G/HD/SD conversion gear, and Linear Acoustic®, the leader in television audio control, have partnered to deliver the world’s first non-destructive transport stream loudness measurement and management solution.

Demonstrations of the groundbreaking technology were conducted at the IBC show on the Cobalt stand (8.A94) and the Linear Acoustic stand (8.D29). This technology will provide the answer to cost-effective, multichannel loudness management within the openGear® frame and via stand-alone products.


Cobalt Digital has announced the launch of its 9257 1x9 MADI audio distribution amplifier. The new card-based solution provides a quick and easy way to transport audio between vehicles without the need for fiber. Up to 20 input channels of the scalable DA, developed for the openGear® open-architecture platform, can be installed in one frame, making it ideal for the limited space available in trucks.


Chris Shaw, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Cobalt Digital, has announced the addition of a cost-effective embedded loudness processor to the Company’s 9000 series of COMPASS® cards for openGear®. The 9086 Embedded Audio Loudness Processor, introduced at NAB 2011, enhances the manufacturer’s growing complement of award-winning 3G/HD/SD conversion gear by offering broadcasters a cost-effective solution for compliance with the CALM (Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation) act.


Cobalt Digital has taken the stress out of CALM act (Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation) compliance by offering logging/graphing capabilities on its Loudness Metering system.
