Application Summary

The Challenge: Panavision needed to upgrade its video-processing system to handle today’s advanced digital production workflows. The system had to be able to pass embedded data and audio and process elements such as metadata and 3G video signals. It needed an expandable multiviewer to replace a quad-split setup. It all had to fit into the space constraints of a multicam sitcom production. And it had to be flexible enough to expand upon it well into the future.



URBANA, Ill. — April 7, 2015 — Cobalt Digital today announced that global audio and video equipment rental company Video Equipment Rentals (VER) has incorporated Cobalt converters and distribution amplifiers into a new flypack it is building for sports- and entertainment-related projects.
