Cobalt's Fusion3G™ Series Recognized at IBC with TV Technology STAR Award
Posted on Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Cobalt's new Fusion3G™ 9900 series for openGear™ is the recipient of a 2010 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award given by the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at the 2010 IBC convention.

The STAR Award is designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. TV Technology Europe's editor reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 25 winners.

Cobalt’s 3 Gigabit-capable Fusion3G™ series are multi-functional, multi-featured cards that offer solutions to today’s signal processing challenges, including loudness processing, audio loudness metering, Dolby® encode and decode, color correction, fiber transmit and receive, and up/down/cross conversion. The range was developed for openGear™, a platform that takes application flexibility to new levels with its ability to handle 3G/HD/SD video processing cards, plus audio processing cards, from multiple manufacturers in the same frame. “STAR awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way,” said Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe. “The products selected help advance the industry--some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products.”
