Cobalt Digital is now aiming for the ProAV market by exhibiting at InfoComm 2024 for the first time. The company aims to maximize its presence in the industry by increasing its visibility with a lineup at InfoComm that brings broadcast-quality, cost-effective, integrator-friendly and versatile technology to the ProAV community. Cobalt will be presenting solutions, many IPMX-compliant, at InfoComm in Booth C8483.

The COBALT SAPPHIRE Converter series accommodates a vast variety of applications with form factors ranging from the BBG series of palm-sized mini converters to rack-mounted openGear cards. The SAPPHIRE BBG mini converters are mounted directly behind the monitor, and Cobalt says they offer high-quality design, function and reliability in a small package that frees up rack space. The units display received Baseband or JPEG-XS content on HDMI monitors in a simple and cost-effective way, including content from WAN connections. Thet converters are ideal for trucks, educational institutions, corporate settings or houses of worship. BBG units are offered in single, dual and quad-channel models, are capable of a fully asynchronous operation and are IPMX-compliant.

The COBALT SAPPHIRE feature-rich openGear converter cards maximize space for greater installation integrity. The SAPPHIRE 9926 openGear HDMI-to-SDI converter cards provide either two or four independent paths of true 12G and HD conversions from HDMI to SMPTE 424M, 292M or 259M. Each channel is equipped with frame sync as well as full input and output audio crosspoints and optional per-path color correction and scaler. Cobalt also offers the SAPPHIRE 9927 dual-channel openGear SDI-To-HDMI converter and the COBALT SAPPHIRE BIDI-2H2S dual-channel bidirectional HDMI to SDI / SDI to HDMI converter.
