Turner Studio trucks add Cobalt Digital terminal gear
Turner Studios has added a complement of Cobalt Digital terminal gear to its latest mobile units.
The two trucks received identical equipment packages slated for video processing, signal conversion and distribution. The equipment included 11 frames, including Cobalt’s new HPF-9000 high-power, high-density frames.
The units are populated with nearly 200 cards including the Cobalt’s 3G/HD/SD-SDI Fusion3G 9901-UDX up/down/cross format converter, numerous DAs and color correctors. Cobalt also supplied multiple OGCP-9000 control panels, and numerous Mini-DIN rears ensure maximum density. Fabrication was accomplished by Beck Associates, a systems integrator located in Pflugerville, TX.
