The Cobalt Digital -DA-SFP adds a daughter card to support two externally-accessible SFP cages to the 9915DA-2x16-XPT-12G card
The Cobalt 9915DA-2x16-XPT-12G 12G/6G/3G/HD/SD Dual-Channel Multi-Rate Reclocking DA with x4 Output Crosspoint supports two input channels which can be crosspoint-routed to up to 16 DA outputs.
As demand for 4K continues to rise, distribution of 12G-SDI signals within a rackspace becomes increasingly important. The 9915DA allows for copper runs of up to 45 meters, reaching most equipment within a rack room or truck. For longer runs, the optional optical inputs and outputs allow the 9915DA to connect distribution from zones of much greater distances.
The extremely flexible crosspoint (which is user-configurable via DashBoard GUI remote control) allows dual 1x8, single 1x16 and other routing possibilities. Any of the two input channels can be distributed or duplicated across four groups of 1x4 DAs. The dual-input capacity provides a one-card solution for distribution of 8K quad-link content over 12G-SDI interfaces. A failover function allows going to secondary backup inputs should the primary input lose lock.
Up to 10 of the 9915DA-2x16-XPT-12G cards can be installed in a frame to provide 20 channels of input, with distribution to up to 160 outputs. Full user DashBoardT or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network
Please Note: Cobalt Digital has designated 2 prefixes for this card. A "+" or a "-" . Our system will not allow us to add these prefixes so we tried to clearly and concisely list which ones are "Hardware based" and which ones are "Software Based" .
Options denoted as "+" are software-based options which are available on new product when 'ordered or can be customer field-installed as a software upload upgrade.
Options or ordering line items denoted as "-" are hardware-based options/items. These options are available as factory-installed only on new product, or product returned to Cobalt for 'factory installation.
Also Please Note: When option -DA-SFP is included, a second input (fiber OE) is in turn added to the card. As such, this exposes a full 2x16 crosspoint that allows both the coax and fiber inputs to be independently and simultaneously routed to various card outputs
