    BBG-1080-CSC-3G - Overview

    With Integrated Test Signal Generator and OGCP-9000/CC Control Panel Support

    The Cobalt BBG-1080-CSC-3G 3G/HD/SD-SDI Standalone RGB Color Space Corrector / Frame Sync with Integrated Test Signal Generator and OGCP-9000/CC Control Panel Support provides a high-density standalone solution that includes an advanced frame sync/pattern generator in addition to a full-featured SD/HD/3G color corrector. The BBG-1080-CSC-3G offers RGB-space color correction with YCbCr proc features with RGB processing controls providing full offset, gain and gamma adjustments. The YCbCr proc controls provide lift, gain, saturation, phase, white clip (hard and soft), black clip, and color saturation clip.

    The built-in pattern generator preceding the color correction block allows patterns (such as 75% or 100% bars) to be pre-emphasized or de-emphasized by the color corrector to match on-set camera colorimetry, with the custom settings saved to a preset, resulting in one-button recall of monitor/camera calibration settings. Any custom settings can be saved to user presets for instant recall via DashBoard or our intuitive OGCP-9000/CC Color Correction Remote Control Panel.

    Preset save/load allows saving custom settings while allowing one-button revert to factory settings. Layered presets allow invoking changes related only to a specific area of concern (audio routing, for example) while not changing any other processing settings or aspects. The BBG-1080-CSC-3G can be remote-controlled using DashBoardT. GPIO allows direct input routing control and status monitoring.

    The compact standalone form factor allows desktop usage, as well as the 1/3-rack size of the BBG-1080-CSC allowing 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).

    • Features:

      • Full RGB color corrector (offset, gain, gamma).
      • Frame Sync with full H/V offset and manual/LOS video pattern generator. Pattern generator in front of color corrector provides custom offset calibrations for on-set monitor/camera characteristics calibrated settings.
      • Passes entire YCbCr gamut in unity gain configuration.
      • 10-bit gamma LUT.
      • Extended YCbCr proc controls with white hard clip, white soft clip, black hard clip, and saturation clip.
      • Phase preserved when applying saturation clip.
      • One-button bypass of color correction for comparison purposes.
      • Low-power/high-density design - less than 18 Watts.
      • Compact footprint - up to 3 units in a 1RU space. Optional tray provides secure captive-fastener mounting of 3 units in a 1RU tray.
      • Uses DashBoard remote control (device appears as single-card frame).
      • Five year warranty.
