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.
