Cobalt® Digital’s new openGear compatible products help Broadcasters transition to IP, 4K, HDR, Cloud, and beyond.
9942-RTR Series – Exclusive openGear® card-based scalable routers
Cobalt’s 9942-RTR 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI/ASI/MADI routers provide a high-density card-based openGear® solution that increases flexibility. Designed specifically for 12G support fitting into a 2RU frame, the range offers agility, ease-of-use and seamless integration making it a platform exclusive.
Adding to openGear DashBoard™ support is built-in Ethernet ports for IP-based protocols such as Cobalt’s ReFLEX, SW-P-08 and offers serial and GPIO interfaces.
Available: 24×24 and 12×12.
BBG-1300-FR – Mini openGear frame for small spaces
Cobalt’s mini-frame fits when space is an issue, functionality can’t be compromised, and remote operation is desired. The BBG-1300-FR 1/3 rack width 1RU openGear compatible frame is capable of housing two cards. A built-in network card allows control and monitoring in DashBoard™. This miniaturized openGear 3.0 chassis features looping reference, redundant power supplies, and support for high-power delivery (60W usable).
Three BBG-1300-FR units fit into 1 RU — perfect for high-density installations when 2RU frame isn’t feasible. The BBG-1300 can be employed remotely as a standalone when a 2RU openGear frame isn’t required. Integrated LCD buttons and control knobs makes status monitoring and network setup easy.
Distribution Amplifiers — 4K Distribution beyond limits
Cobalt’s DAs distribute 12G-SDI signals within an openGear frame to answer demand for 4K. The 9915DA-1×16-12G 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD-SDI 1×16 Reclocking DA supports an input channel distributed to 16 DA outputs and offers optional SFP support for fiber input and DA outputs.
Cobalt’s 9915DA-2×16-XPT-12G 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD Quad-Channel Multi-Rate Reclocking DA with x4 Output Crosspoint supports two input channels which can be crosspoint-routed to 16 DA outputs.
Cobalt’s 9915DA-4×16-XPT-12G 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD Quad-Channel Multi-Rate Reclocking DA features x4 Output Crosspoint supporting four input channels which can be crosspoint-routed to 16 DA outputs.
Both include optional SFP support for reach beyond coaxial limitations.
