Cobalt Fusion 3G 9901-UDX Delivers for Conversion Needs

Cobalt Digital is rolling out the Cobalt Fusion3G 9901-UDX converter at NAB, providing an unprecedented “everything in – everything out” level of universal support —with 3G/HD/SD-SDI, fiber, analog video, as well as embedded, AES and analog audio proc and embed/de-embed — all on the same device. This level of integration correspondingly reduces rack module count and simplifies the signal chain. Cobalt Fusion3G series cards can be ordered with base model and option packages tailoring the card to the video/audio processing and signal types you require.
