The all-new Cobalt® BBG-1002-UDX Modular 3G/HD/SD-SDI Up-Down-Cross Converter/Framesync/Audio Embed-De-Embed with Multi-Input Auto-Changeover provides a high-density standalone modular unit 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 BBG-1002-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. 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 BBG-1002-UDX-AV-EMDE model additionally provides analog video (CVBS) inputs and outputs, with AES and analog audio 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.

The BBG-1002-UDX uses a built-in web server that allows control/monitor over computers or smart devices from anywhere accessible over the web; no special apps or plug-ins are required for remote control. The compact 1/3-rack size of the BBG-1002-UDX allows 3 units to be installed in a 1RU space (an optional mounting tray is available that provides secure mounting of the units to a standard 19” frame). 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.
  • 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. Framesync can also convert raster format between 29.97/59.94 and 30/60 formats. Rear-panel looping reference connectors.
  • Full audio crosspoint with delay control and 5.1-to-stereo downmix available for all audio outputs
  • Audio options provide loudness processing, upmixing, and Dolby decode/encode
  • Video options provide CGMS support, color correction, and keying
  • Web-based user interface/remote control as well as front-panel pushbutton menu-based local control with LCD status/net ID
  • Redundant power supply option
  • Compact footprint – up to 3 units in a 1RU space. Optional tray provides secure captive-fastener mounting of 3 units in a 1RU tray.
  • Five year warranty

Note: Inputs/outputs are a function in some cases of model. See rear panel illustrations for I/O complements offered.
