Cobalt finds place in NEP’s WWE HD truck

NEP Supershooters has selected Cobalt equipment for the new WWE
(World Wrestling Entertainment) mobile production vehicle. Products
chosen include the 9062 up/down/cross converter, the award-winning
9035 analog-to-digital audio embedder with frame sync and A/V
processing controls, and the award-winning 8090 HD/SD 12-bit standalone analog-to-digital converter.

“We have found Cobalt Digital to be extremely responsive to meeting our
needs for innovative products. The Down Converting DAs, Embedders and
De-Embedders have been designed to meet our requirements for format
agnostic equipment with a web enable user interface. The Down
Converting DAs offer broadcast quality outputs with field lock when
converting progressive frames to interlaced,” says George Hoover, NEP
Senior VP of Engineering.
Hoover says “NEP has a long relationship with Cobalt Digital,
leading back to when Cobalt was founded.” In 1997, Cobalt started out
by building digital-to-analog converters for the sports remote trucks
of NEP.
“We are pleased to add
the WWE vehicle to the growing number of mobile production trucks who
are now using the 9000 COMPASS series products,” says
Chris Shaw, Cobalt director of sales. ”
Cobalt engineering has
proven more than capable in responding in a timely manner to provide
specific solutions to customers’ challenges—a vital asset in today’s TV
broadcast industry.”
