Rear I/O Module for the Cobalt Digital 9960-TG2-REF1.
The Cobalt 9960-TG2-REF1 3G/HD/SD-SDI Dual Test Signal Generator with Moving Box Active Signal Indication and Bi-Level/Tri-Level Sync Out offers an easy to use, economical solution to providing comprehensive test signal packages to ensure validity of downstream baseband SDI systems. The 9960-TG2-REF1 is an unprecedented first in the high-density openGearr based card form factor. Two independent generator blocks can be set to offer dual test packages which can be simultaneously outputted or selectively fed to a single downstream path via a 2x4 output crosspoint.
The SCTE 104 insertion function provides generation and insertion of SCTE 104 messages into baseband SDI. Message send can be triggered from automation GPI or other event action modes. The function can also execute card actions based on SCTE 104 messages received by the card, as well as send triggered SCTE 104 packets to other downstream systems.
The 9960-TG2-REF1 also provides AES and analog audio test tones (both using 24-bit data). A moving-box insertion can be enabled to serve as a dynamic raster confidence check. The 9960-TG2-REF1 can use either of two frame references to provide an output that's synchronous with house ref, or use its internal ref timing to generate its own ref. An analog video output offers SD black burst or HD tri-level reference output.
Preset save/load allows saving custom card settings while allowing one-button revert to factory settings. Layered presets allow invoking changes related only to a specific area of concern while not changing any other settings or aspects. Full user DashBoard or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network. GPIO allows direct input routing control and status monitoring.
