The Cobalt Indigo 2110-DC-01 is a factory add-on option to Cobalt 9904-UDX-4K and 9905-MPx models. This option adds native SMPTE ST-2110 support for these cards, with multiple 25G Ethernet interfaces.
The Indigo 2110-DC-01 circumvents the cumbersome, error-prone, and expensive prior solutions of multiple devices in the data path. Adding native ST-2110 interfaces to the audio/video processing elements, Cobalt is providing a cost-effective, easily manageable, integrated solution to this problem. Multiple boxes or processing elements are no longer needed in the data path, going back and forth between IP and SDI. By natively doing all the processing directly over IP, unnecessary complexity and cost is avoided.
With this option, all the advanced processing in these cards is now available with IP inputs and outputs, without the need for an external gateway. Indigo 2110-DC-01 includes support for ST-2022-7 seamless redundancy switching, as well as IS-04/IS-05 NMOS for automatic discovery and configuration. Mated with the host card, this creates a powerful and processing-dense product that is capable of natively processing HD, 3G and 4K IP streams with no quality compromises. No other solution currently in the market can achieve the density provided by the combination of functionality offered by the Indigo 2110-DC-01 and the 9904-UDX-4K/9905-MPx combination.
Note: Indigo 2110-DC-01 option is not compatible with the 9904-UDX-4K-DSP model.
