3G/HD/SD Up/Down/Cross Converter and Frame Sync
The Fusion3G™ 9901-UDX base model is a 3G/HD/SD-SDI up/down/cross converter with multiple inputs/outputs, frame sync, and full embedded audio and ancillary data support. Frame sync can select from multiple reference inputs, with failover to alternate selected sources. Full
embedded audio support includes per-channel audio delay. Remote control is quick and easy with the free DashBoard™ remote control software,
the Cobalt OGCP-9000 remote control panels, or optional SNMP agent software for openGear™ frames.
You can select from options to add fiber I/O, analog video I/O, AES and analog audio I/O embed/de-embed — all on the same card. This
level of integration reduces module count and simplifies the signal chain, as well as providing flexibility for ever-changing system requirements,
including 3-D TV compliant 1080p. Options also include functions beyond the base conversions and frame sync functions, allowing tailoring of
the 9901-UDX to meet your specific needs. Wings insertion, general purpose keying, color correction, Dolby® E/AC-3 encoding and decoding, ITU
BS.1770 loudness metering, and Linear Acoustic upmixing and loudness processing are all available individually or in combinations as options.
Where the full conversion capability is not required, the 9901 series is available as the following base model versions (if desired later, any of
these versions can be field upgraded to base 9901-UDX functionality using a firmware upgrade without removing the card from its frame).
Alternate Base Models:
9901-UC
SD to 3G/HD Upconverter with 3G/HD/SD Passthrough
9901-DC
3G/HD to SD Downconverter with 3G/HD/SD Passthrough
9901-XC
3G/HD to 3G/HD Cross Converter with 3G/HD/SD Passthrough
All base models are also available as
HD/SD only (for example, 9901-UDXHD). All other features and
specifications remain the same.

I/O Options
s 16 Channel Audio Embedding/De-Embedding (+AES)
Provides eight (total) AES pair BNC connections that can be software-configured as inputs or outputs. Independent SRC for all AES inputs,
with auto and manual bypass for non-PCM data.
s Fiber Inputs/Outputs (+FRx / +FTx / +FRxTx / +FRxRx / +FTxTx)*
Provides one or two fiber connections per card. Inputs can serve any function in the product, outputs can be assigned from any function
in the card. Connector type is dual LC with blind-mate connectors. Cards are fully swappable.
s Universal Analog Video Inputs/Outputs (+ANV)*
Provides an analog video input and output (CVBS, component, RGB (sync on green))
s Analog Audio Inputs/Outputs (+ANA)*
Provides up to eight channels (total) of balanced analog audio inputs and outputs
*Requires expansion Rear Module (for example, 9901-UDX+ANV requires RM20-9901-XB expansion Rear Module)
Video Options
s Wings Insertion (+WINGS)
Provides wings insertion using an independent SDI input provided for wings signal. Provides programmable insertion width.
s Keying (+KEYER)
Provides keying using independent SDI inputs for key and fill signals. Chroma key region can be defined using manual controls or an AutoDetect function. A separate preview SDI output is provided for observing key results before applying to program video output.
s Color Correction (+COLOR)
Provides independent RGB channel controls for luma, black, and gamma. Ultra-fast response time. The color correction feature is perfectly
suited for use with Cobalt OGCP-9000/CC Remote Control Panel.
Audio Options
s Linear Acoustic Software Loudness Processing (+LP5.1 / +2LP2.0 / +LP2.0)
Featuring Linear Acoustic AEROMAX™ technology and available in 5.1-channel (LP51), dual stereo (2LP20), and/or single stereo (LP20),
these loudness processors use inputs from any source received by the card, or any mixing setting produced by the card. AEROMAX™
algorithms use a sophisticated multi-band approach to loudness processing, and can apply multi-faceted loudness correction specifically
targeted to various frequency ranges and other characteristics within the program material, resulting in audio free from abrupt loudness or
image shifts while preserving more of the original content than previously possible.
s Software Loudness Meter (+LM )
Cobalt’s audio loudness metering option (in conjunction with a Cobalt OGCP-9000 Remote Control Panel) provides a flexible solution for
ingest or on-air loudness metering and assessment in compliance with ATSC A/85 and ITU BS.1770. With LKFS measurement, true peak level
detection, error tracking and logging, and intuitive interface with touch screen control, this feature provides easy to use and thorough audio
level and LKFS assessment information.
s Linear Acoustic Software Upmixer (+UM)
Featuring Linear Acoustic UPMAX™ technology, upmixing allows legacy stereo program content to be converted to full 5.1-channel audio.
UPMAX™ mode detects 2.0 content and automatically applies upmix mode (with configurable switchover fade-in/fade-out) depending on
absence or presence of 5.1 source audio.
s Dolby® E/AC-3 Decoding (+DEC)
Decodes AC-3 and Dolby® E signals from AES or embedded sources. Full metadata support; both SMPTE 2020 and serial.
s AC-3 (Dolby® Digital) Encoding (+ENCD )
Provides AC-3 encoding from any combination of audio sources supported by the card (including mixed and loudness controlled signals). Full
metadata support using internally generated or external metadata via SMPTE 2020 or serial. Metadata can be embedded and/or outputted
on a serial port.
s Dolby® E Encoding (+ENCE)
Provides Dolby® E encoding from any combination of audio sources supported by the card (including mixed and loudness controlled signals).
Full metadata support using internally generated or external metadata via SMPTE 2020 or serial. Metadata can be embedded and/or
outputted on a serial port.
