    9905-MPX - Overview

    The Cobalt Digital Multi-Path 9905-MPx 3G/HD/SD Quad-Path Up/Down/Cross Converter/Frame Sync/Embed/De-Embed Audio Processor is a Cobaltr next-generation advanced scaler/frame synchronizer for the openGearr platform. The 9905-MPx provides four independent signal paths of UDX / frame sync / audio embedding and de-embedding on a single open-Gearr card. Using our HPF-9000 20-slot frame, this provides up to 24 channels (6 cards) of processing in a single frame. The 9905-MPx represents a new level of openGear packaging density!

    The 9905-MPx provides high-density that offers unprecedented multi-input support and flexibility. Independent up/down/cross convert scalers are specifically designed for broadcast video formats, with full ARC control suitable for conversions to or from 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. Discrete AES and MADI audio audio embedding/routing/mixing/de-embedding to any of four processing paths is supported. Standard 3D LUT feature and available color correction provide accommodation of SDR and HDR processing for downstream HDR systems.

    Card control/monitoring is available via DashBoard user interface or Cobalt's RESTful-based Reflex protocol. The 9905-MPx can be software-converted to a 4K Quad-Link Input SDM/2SI 4K UDX/Frame Sync card with an option software license.

    • Features:

      • Multi-Path design offers four independent UDX / frame sync paths (channels) per card
      • Flexible AES and MADI embed/de-embed for each path
      • Multi-input RP168 clean switch, with manual selection or GPI controlled input selection. Path inputs can also be sourced from alternate path outputs with no external patching.
      • Up/Down/Cross Conversion with user ARC control. 3D-LUT is standard feature for all paths.
      • Supports all popular formats: 480i, 576i, 720p, 1080i, 1080pSF, 1080p
      • Independent four-path ANC bridging, including timecode and closed-captioning processing
      • Noise Reduction and Detail Enhancement provide image quality optimization
      • Remote control/monitoring via DashboardT software, OGCP-9000 remote control panels or Cobalt's RESTful-based Reflex protocol
