By: Cobalt Digital
Champaign, IL – August 3, 2021 – Cobalt® Digital (http://www.cobaltdigital.com/)
"The 9904-UDX series, Cobalt's must-have problem solver, is found in the toolkit of organizations all around the world ranging from post-production and production facilities to sports broadcasters, houses of worship, educational institutions and corporate entities," said Suzana Brady, Cobalt Digital's SVP of Worldwide Sales and Marketing. "Now we've added even more features and support capabilities that place it in a class of its own – unique in its openGear® form factor and at a budget-pleasing price point."
The 9904-UDX series can now accept 3G Level B-DL in addition to 3G Level A, automatically detect the format and output either 3G Level A or 3G Level B-DL as configured by the operator. In addition, RGB 4:4:4 and YCbCr 4:4:4 formats are also accepted and supported by the built-in framesync as well as all audio de/embed and processing functions.
Prior to the enhancement, the 9904-UDX family already supported all popular formats: 480i, 576i, 720p, 1080i, 1080pSF, 1080p and provided full up/down conversion between HD/3G, ST 2082 12G-SDI single-wire, and SDM/2SI quad 3G-SDI based formats, with ST 2082 12G-SDI single-wire and quad 3G UHD available at both input and output.
This latest version of the 9904-UDX is already in use at The Foundation, a full-service post-production provider located in the heart of Burbank's Media District. Known for leveraging the latest equipment and technologies for a superior customer experience, The Foundation provides picture services and workflows in current and emerging formats, including HD, 2K, 4K, UHD, HDR10 and Dolby Vision. The Foundation is using the power of Cobalt's 9904-UDX card to capture a variety of film source material from a DaVinci Resolve as Level-B, process the audio by either delaying, embedding or de-embedding, and sending it back to the Resolve for composition.
