(URBANA, IL) Cobalt Digital Inc., a leading designer and manufacturer of conversion products, was recently awarded a TV Technology STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) during the IBC 2008 show, in recognition of the new OGCP-9000 remote control panel. Designed to control and configure Cobalt’s 9000 series of cards for the openGear frame, the OGCP-9000 is a major enhancement to the extensive openGear line of terminal equipment.

"The OGCP-9000 is another example of the innovation and ability of Cobalt Digital's engineering group," said Chris Shaw, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "We are proud of the company’s hard core focus on engineering, and Cobalt is committed to designing solutions to meet the challenges of today's television broadcast industry."

A second remote control panel, the OGCP-9000/CC, was also launched at IBC. Both panels are designed for use with Cobalt’s full series of 9000 cards for openGear, but the OGCP-9000/CC provides special emphasis and features for Cobalt’s 9084 Color Corrector card. The 9084 is an RGB Corrector with YCbCr proc features and a frame synchronizer, and can process HD/SD-SDI signals in all formats.

The OGCP-9000 remote control panel is the eighth Cobalt product to win an industry award since the company’s founding in 1997.
