Video interfaces At Content and Communications World (CCW), Cobalt Digital will showcase its Blue Box Group line of stand-alone interface converter boxes, and introduce a dual- channel frame sync card for the openGear platform. The latter is the Cobalt 9922- 2FS, a 3G/HD/SD-SDI card that provides audio and video processing, AES/analogue audio embedding and de-embedding, and CVBS I/O with two signal paths of frame sync. Channel density can be as high as 33 channels in 2 RU when the card is deployed in the OG3-FR openGear frame, or up to 40 channels of advanced processing when housed in Cobalt’s HPF- 9000 20-slot high-power openGear frame. Key features include the ability to add RGB colour correction, set auto-changeover to invoke failover for basic input loss, and “moving-box” insertion over input video or internally generated test patterns for active picture verifi cation. www.cobaltdigital.com Batteries IDX has released the AT-E2CMKII, a V-Mount battery adaptor plate that allows its ENDURA V-Mount batteries to power the Canon C300 Mark II. The plate is equipped with a Lemo connector for a direct connection to the camera and offers D-Tap outputs, capable of handling 50W each, for powering ancillary gear such as monitors, lights or recorders. The V-Plate design has three industry standard screw-hole patterns to adapt to a cheese plate or camera support rod mounting accessory. Tomo Nishikawa, general manager, IDX System Technology said: “We understand that the C300 Mark II comes with an on-board battery, which is perfect for run and gun/handheld shoots; however, when it comes to shooting composed shots that include many accessories, a larger battery is necessary to power everything. This is where we see our new product help maximize production effi ciency.” www.idxtek.com BROADCAST FIBRE OPTIC SOLUTIONS OB and Field Deployable Applications Caddie-LB 4K BlueLite BC364 Wavelength Mapping ShaxX Power Insertion BN366 4K Fibre Links Infrastructure BC365 12G-SDI BC860/862 Gigabit links A complete range of modular field proven interfaces.
