End-User’s Benefits
(1) Standard Control
Card Edge
First feature I fell in love with:
• Card Mounted Finger
Joystick/switch
– “Heads up” feature
• Available on various
cards
• such as the crossconverter SFS-8221
Permits card level
adjustments with on
screen display of menu.
Head’s Up Display
• Head’s Up Display
– To make configuration easier, the UDC-8225A Format Converter
offers a unique Heads-Up Display on a separate NTSC / PAL
monitoring output.
– When activated, card status and parameters can be viewed and
adjusted using the card-mounted finger joystick and an easy to
use menu system.
I’m not the only one who finds this feature
cool… -Card Mounted Finger Joystick
•
We particularly like the Cobalt feature that
provides control of the cards via onboard switch
settings or through Cobalt’s DashBoard software.
– We use DashBoard to control all parameters of the
various Cobalt products we use in our larger
systems.
• The DashBoard software is easy to operate as it’s
very intuitive.
– Since many of the parameter adjustments are also
available on edge-mounted controls, we also use
cards in local mode for some of our smaller
systems.

End-User Testimonials
•
"One of the more recent challenges we faced was a fasttrack program for upgrading two studios to high-definition
operations in connection with the production of the Colbert
Report and the Daily Show. Both shows had to stay in
production in SD during the HD upgrade.
– [...] We have a large plant and there's always a lot of frame
syncing, color correcting, embedding and de-embedding being
accomplished in connection with the dozens of signals moving
throughout the operation. By using openGear™ products with
the DashBoard™ control and monitoring software, along with
the Cobalt OGCP-9000 remote control panels, we have
achieved one of the holy grails of system design--all video and
audio processing under a common control scheme."
George Hoover,

Loudness control
•
Allowing broadcasters to manage loudness,
– providing their viewers with the highest level of audio quality, and
avoiding the annoying extremes of loudness currently experienced.
– The combination of Cobalt’s 9000 series cards for openGear™ and the
Linear Acoustic AeroMAX™ technology provides a high quality, price
competitive solution in rack frame format.
– Options available are processing on six to eight channels comprising
5.1, two channels comprising a stereo sound field, and a ‘Special’ quad
2.0 version providing four stereo or mono programs.

complete audio solution offers both 5.1-channel and stereo
loudness processors using inputs from any source received by
the card, or any mixing setting produced by the card.
• Loudness Metering
– Cobalt's Audio Loudness Meter software provides a flexible,
comprehensive solution for ingest or on-air loudness metering
and assessment.

Additional Frame Accessories
Rear frame support bracket
• To help reduce mechanical stress due to
cable weight,
– a rear frame support bracket (FSB-8310) is
available for the DFR-8310 series frames.
– The rear support bracket (FSB-8320) is for
the DFR-8321 series frames.
Card Retaining Bracket
Additional Frame Accessories
• For mobile installations,
the CRB-8310 Card
Retaining Bracket can be
added.
– This bracket holds all
modules firmly in place,
eliminating module slippage
during frame transport.
OGCP-9000 remote control panel
• Communication with the openGear™
frame occurs
– over an optimized high-speed openGear™
Ethernet control protocol,
• allowing lightning-fast access.
– The OGCP-9000 offers instantaneous, real-time
adjustments,
• so operators can manipulate on-air signals with
confidence and precision.
Just type in the value
you want, and press enter.
OGCP-9000 remote control panel
The OGCP-9000 has a simple keypad layout on its front left side, along with USB connectivity,
and eight active displays (on two screens) with eight scroll/action knobs associated with each
LCD screen located on the mid-right section of the front panel.
Open Minds brings great complicity
• The 9305 card is an embedded audio delay processor,
and includes an optional audio up-mixer.
– Features include HD/SD-SDI input deembedding of all audio
data,
– independent delay of each channel, and
– re-embedding of processed audio data.
– The optional upmixer software features Linear Acoustic
technology to provide a stereo signal that’s representative of the
5.1 surround signal.
Audio Upmixer Software
OPT-SW-UM
•
The 5.1 upmixer can always generate a 5.1 feed from a stereo pair, or be
set to look at signal levels on designated channels. Where valid 5.1 audio is
present, the 5.1 upmixer allows the channels to pass unaffected. Where 5.1
audio is not present, the 5.1 upmixer then automatically generates and
routes the 5.1 audio on the designated channels.
OPT-SW-LM Audio Loudness
Meter Software
• The Audio Loudness Meter software (OPT-SW-LM)
provides a flexible, comprehensive solution for ingest or
on-air loudness metering and assessment.
– With true peak level detection, error tracking and logging, and
intuitive interface with touch screen control, Cobalt's Audio
Loudness Meter ensures thorough audio level and LKFS
assessment information.
– The option is ATSC A/85 and ITU BS.1770 compliant.

Color corrector
& Dedicated Panel
• The 9084 card is an HD/SD-SDI RGB color corrector
with YCbCr video proc and frame sync controls.
– The RGB processing provides full offset, gain and gamma
adjustments, and the YCbCr proc controls provide lift, gain,
saturation, phase, white clip (hard and soft), black clip and color
saturation clip. A full-featured frame sync provides compatible
reference matching with only three lines of delay, and it can be
bypassed for operation in synchronous environments.
Rotary controls allow direct access to gain, gamma and black for each
of the RGB channels, in addition to YCbCr proc controls.
AG-3801
8-VSB/ASI to ASI/SDI Receiver/Decoder Card
•
Receive ATSC broadcast signals and output those signals via
ASI and SD/HD-SDI.
– Switchable SD/HD-SDI Outputs
• Transition from SD to HD sources without changing hardware.
– Manual or AFD Triggered Downconversion
• Fix the output format to the preferred center-cut, letterbox, or anamorphic modes. Or,
switch formats on the fly with support for the Active Format Descriptor (AFD).
– Extensive Ancillary Data Support
• Supports pass through for extensive ancillary data including: 608/708 closed caption,
XDS/V-CHIP, AMOL, and Gemstar.
– ASI Output
• Simultaneous ASI output to facilitate transport stream analysis or as an input directly to
a multiplexer.
