    The all-new Cobalt 9970-QS 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS Quint-Split Multi-Image Display Processor integrates five discrete 3G/HD/SD-SDI or CVBS inputs onto a single 3G/HD/SD-SDI quint-split output, with each input image being flexibly inserted into the output image area.

    Fully-flexible layouts using one-button templates or custom layouts using easy to use sizing/positioning custom controls. Custom layouts can be saved to user presets. A master output up-down-cross convert scaler provides scale-to HD or 3G SDI formats for the combined multiviewer output. Advanced graphics such as user identify text, PiP input video format, audio meter bars, tally/UMD, reticules, and timecode can be burned into any PiP with full user attributes control. User-configurable Quality Check allows subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame or audio silence events to propagate an on-screen alarm/alert to the output image (such as alert text burn-in or border alert highlighting).

    The openGearr card-based form factor of the 9970-QS provides scalable, easily integrated multi-image functions for the 20-slot frame form factor with easy to use DashBoard remote control. Each PiP input is provided its own independent timing alignment controls with lock to reference, allowing aysnchronous inputs to be directly accommodated. An HDMI output (with audio embedding) allows direct feed to a monitor.

    Full user DashBoard or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network. Tally can be communicated by GPI, Ethernet, or serial interfaces.

    • Features

      • Scalable PiP solution. Single card provides up to 5:1 split, with up to ten 5:1 splits per frame
      • openGear card-based form factor provides easy and economical integration
      • Easy to configure PiP sizing and borders. Advanced graphics include audio meters, character burn, and reticules. PiP sizing/splits using one-button templates or easy-to-use, intuitive DashBoard controls. Custom settings can be saved to user presets.
      • Fully flexible input compatibility - mixed formats on inputs can be automatically sized and outputted in a combined output scaled to desired broadcast SD/HD/3G output format. Each input automatically detects and sets up for SDI or CVBS input. Per-PiP independent SD and HD ARC settings and controls.
