Cobalt's 9901-UDX Wins Broadcast Engineering Pick Hit Honors at IBC
Posted on Tuesday, September 21, 2010
Cobalt Digital's new Fusion3G™ 9901-UDX 3G/HD/SD-SDI Up/Down/Cross Converter with Frame Sync was recognized for innovation at IBC 2010 with Broadcast Engineering’s Pick Hit award. The multi-purpose 9901-UDX was honored for its ability to answer signal processing challenges, including loudness processing, audio loudness metering, Dolby® encode and decode, color correction, fiber transmit and receive, and up/down/cross conversion - all on the same module. The 9901-UDX also offers a wide range of options to add fiber I/O, analog video I/O, AES and analog audio I/O embed/de-embed. This level of integration reduces module count, simplifies the signal chain, and provides ultimate flexibility for changing system requirements, including 3-D TV compliant 1080p. Cobalt developed the Fusion3G range 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. Broadcast Engineering’s prestigious Pick Hit Awards are selected by a panel of independent judges who tour the convention floor looking for innovative products and technology. The judges confer based on several criteria, including the technical and financial improvements the product can bring to a facility’s operation.
