The all-new Cobalt® 9902-UDX 3G/HD/SD Up-Down-Cross Converter/Framesync/Audio Embed-De-Embed with Multi-Input Auto-Changeover provides a high-density card-based solution that offers unprecedented multi-input support, flexibility, and ease of use and integration. Multiple SDI input ports allow manual selection of input, or failover to alternate inputs (Auto-Changeover) on loss of input conditions. 

With option +ANC, the 9902-UDX offers full VANC/HANC ancillary data packet de-embedding and embedding for 3G/HD/SD-SDI streams. The easy to use interface allows direct access to DID and SDID locations to extract or insert user data such as camera PTZ, SCTE 104, closed-captioning read/insert, GPI/GPO via ANC, or other specialized user payloads. Data can be extracted and inserted within the card, bypassing the scaler (Bridge mode), or inserted and/or extracted to and from external interface via serial or IP interfaces.

Quality Check option +QC allows failover to alternate inputs based on user-configurable subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame or audio silence. Two discrete character burn strings can be inserted on output video, with each string inserted as static text and/or insert only upon LOS. Import of user trouble slate graphics is also supported in addition to standard test pattern insert as an input LOS marker. A moving-box insertion can be enabled to serve as a dynamic raster confidence check even when the input video image is static. Included standard is closed captioning absence/presence detection that allows CEA 608/708 and line 21 SD CC absence or presence to be detected, with event actions consisting of GPO, automated alert email actions, or go-to card user presets or other actions.

The up/down/cross convert scaler is specifically designed for broadcast video progressive and interlaced formats, with full ARC control suitable for conversions to or from 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. 3:2 pulldown optimization allows A-frame to use alignment correlated to received timecode or 6 Hz external input over GPI. Timecode can be received and prioritized among any standard SMPTE embedded or audio LTC timecode, and in turn outputted and burned-in on the output video. The 9902-UDX also provides analog CVBS video inputs and outputs, and AES/analog audio embedding and de-embedding.

Preset save/load allows saving custom card settings while allowing one-button revert to factory settings. Layered presets allow invoking changes related only to a specific area of concern (audio routing, for example) while not changing any other processing settings or aspects. Full user DashBoard™ or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Etherenet network. GPIO allows direct input routing control and status monitoring.


  • Multi-input, with manual selection or intelligent Auto-Changeover failover
  • Closed-captioning absence detection and flagging, with GPO, automated alert email, go-to user preset, or other actions
  • Auto-Changeover can be set to invoke failover for basic input loss. Quality Check option (+QC) provides failover on subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame. Threshold and hold-off are user configurable.
  • Moving-box/motion insertion enable serves as a dynamic raster confidence check even in cases where the input video image is static
  • Low-power/high-density design – less than 18 Watts per card
  • Up/Down/Cross Conversion and ARC specifically tailored for broadcast video
  • Dual independent burn-in text string insertion allows condition-based insertion (such as basic ID text for valid input and different text message for failover conditions)
  • Supports import of user trouble slate graphic file for LOS failover insertion
  • Timecode processing can prioritize, filter for, and convert between specific SMPTE embedded-video or audio LTC, with output/burn-in timecode using selected format
  • Framesync with full H/V offset and manual/LOS video pattern generator
  • Full audio crosspoint with delay control and 5.1-to-stereo downmix available for all audio outputs
  • CVBS analog video I/O and analog/AES embed / de-embed available
  • Option +ANC adds full user VANC/HANC packet insertion/extraction access to DID/SDID ancillary data such as camera PTZ, SCTE 104, closed captioning, and other specialized user payloads. Multi-mode setup includes Bridge mode (card internal path with scaler bypass bridging) or Insert/Extract modes for insert/extract to or from IP/serial external interfaces.
  • 3:2 pulldown optimization allows A-frame alignment correlated to received timecode or 6 Hz external input over GPI
  • Audio options include loudness processing, upmixing, and Dolby decode/encode
  • Video options include CGMS support, color correction, and keying
  • Remote control/monitoring via Dashboard™ software or OGCP-9000 remote control panels
  • Five year warranty

Note: Inputs/outputs are a function in some cases of rear I/O module used.
