CHAMPAIGN, ILL.—Cobalt Digital will use the IBC 2017 stage to display a number of its latest products that cover a range of production needs.


In the spotlight at the show will be Cobalt’s new FAST-Stream system that combines frame-accurate SCTE 104 trigger insertion with enhanced HLS SCTE 35 streaming on a single platform. Built for the openGear terminal gear platform, FAST-Stream provides baseband SDI signals and HTTP live streaming streams with frame-accurate boundary points, complete with SCTE 35 metadata contained in the associated manifest file.

Other new Cobalt products set to make an appearance at the show include the 9934-AUD-PRO 3G/HD/SD-SDI advanced audio processor, which supports multiple accelerated DSP features that can be added in the field and adds Dolby Real-Time Loudness Leveling to make the AUD-PRO a complete broadcast-audio processing system. There is also the 9902-UDX-DSP-CI channel integrator, a 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS up/down/cross-converter that provides signal conversion and processing tool set required to conform input analog and digital audio and video signals and associated metadata for content- and channel-delivery content.
