The all-new Cobalt BBG-1040-ACO Multi-Input Modular Framesync with Auto-Changeover and Character Burn provides a high-density standalone modular unit that offers unprecedented multi-input support, flexibility, and ease of use and integration. Multiple SDI input ports allow manual selection of input, or failover to alternate inputs (Auto-Changeover) on loss of input conditions as well as user-configurable subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame or audio silence. Quality Check allows failover to alternate inputs based on user-configurable subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame or audio silence. Two discrete character burn strings can be inserted on output video, with each string inserted as static text and/or insert only upon LOS. Import of user trouble slate graphics is also supported in addition to standard test pattern insert as an input LOS marker. A moving-box insertion can be enabled to serve as a dynamic raster confidence check even when the input video image is static.

Timecode can be received and prioritized among any standard SMPTE embedded or audio LTC timecode, and in turn outputted and burned-in on the output video.

The BBG-1040-ACO uses a built-in web server that allows control/monitor over computers or smart devices from anywhere accessible over the web; no special apps or plug-ins are required for remote control. The compact 1/3-rack size of the BBG-1040-ACO allows 3 units to be installed in a 1RU space (an optional mounting tray is available that provides secure mounting of the units to a standard 19" frame). GPIO allows direct input routing control and status monitoring.
