According to the company, Cobalt will unveil the latest in converter technology with its new OBSIDIAN3G range of cards. It will also highlight enhanced colour correction features in its 9084 COMPASS HD/SD-SDI RGB Color Correction Card, feature the extended capabilities of its SPOTCHECK video/audio compliance monitoring and recorded data logging system, and show its new fibre units both in card form and in Cobalt’s Blue Box Group family of throw-down modules.

The expanding OBSIDIAN3G series debuts at IBC 2013 with a downconverter series that combines low power with a high-density design – plus the potential to pack up to 20 cards per frame in a dual-channel unit for a total of 40 conversions.
