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.


With an ear tuned to professionals in the ever-changing global broadcast industry, Cobalt Digital, manufacturer of award-winning 3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion gear for broadcast environments, will be rolling out several important solutions at this year’s NAB Show in Booth N4624. The Company, that prides itself in listening to its customers, will answer the need for a quad split card for openGear®, expand its Blue Box Group™ with another converter and framesync, and present a card-based multi-rate distribution amplifier.
