Cobalt Digital Takes on SMPTE 2110, HDR and RIST

At booth 5E2-06 in the ASME Pavilion, Cobalt Digital is presenting the first licence-based 12G-SDI Bridge to Dante Audio, the recently launched Indigo SMPTE ST 2110 input option for its 9904-UDX-4K and 9905-MPx processing cards, an SDR/HDR demo with Advanced HDR by Technicolor, and a Multi-Link RIST (Reliable Internet Stream Transport) demo in seamless Switching Mode using SMPTE ST 2022-7.

The new +UDX-DANTE-16×16 licence-based 12G-SDI Bridge to Dante Audio brings high-density, convenience and cost-effective support to Dante users. The licence supports embedding and de-embedding all the way to 12G with full audio routing capabilities between SDI, MADI, and Dante, both input and output, adding up to 32 channels to existing 9904-UDX-4K cards for a high-density solution without the need for any new hardware.

Cobalt’s all new Indigo 2110-DC-01 brings native SMPTE ST 2110 interface option for its 9904-UDX-4K and 9905-MPx openGear cards. The copany says it is a cost effective, easy to manage and fully integrated way to avoid the need for multiple and expensive devices in the data path.

The Reversible Inverse Tone Mapping (RITM) Demo on the Elevate Broadcast booth highlights uses the latest updates from Advanced HDR by Technicolor to the ITM processing algorithm and SL-HDRv1 running on Cobalt’s 9904-UDX-4K cards to provide perfect SDR matching between the original SDR and the output for the SL-HDRv1 processor. This gives operators flexibility in the SDR>HDR process to add enhancements over what one may do with static 3D LUTs while also achieving matching requirements for SDR and HDR productions. The demo will show that a single stream process can give HDR monitors a visually richer experience while also providing the original SDR to legacy displays.

Cobalt Digital will be demonstrating SMPTE ST 2022-7 Seamless Redundancy Switch coupled with RIST on its 9992-ENC encoder and 9992-DEC decoder compression line. If you want to use the Internet but require maximum reliability, get two independent links from different providers and add RIST on top. You will have glitch-free switching if one of them goes down, with the RIST packet recovery on top!
