The Cobalt® BBG-1070-QS 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS Standalone Expandable Multiviewer with Advanced On-Screen Graphics integrates five discrete 3G/HD/SD-SDI or CVBS inputs onto a single 3G/HD/SD-SDI quint-split output, with each input image being flexibly inserted into the output image area.
Any template layout or custom layout changes can be done “on-the-fly” in real time, without tedious setup compiler or layout programs like many other split/multiviewer products. While the BBG-1070-QS offers unprecedented flexibility, it also offers an unprecedented ease of use. Fully-flexible layouts using any of several one-button template presets or fully customizable layouts using easy to use sizing/positioning custom controls. Custom layouts can be saved to user presets.
Multiple BBG-1070-QS units can be cascaded to provide splits greater than the base quint-split. The PIP5 input can be used in a cascaded chain of BBG-1070-QS units that provides multiviewer layouts of up to 8×8 (64:1). The QuickSet grid definer precisely and easily sets up a multiviewer grid where columns and rows of each of the cards PIPs are arranged to work together in a cascaded aggregate arrangement. Low-latency processing allows multiple BBG-1070-QS units to be cascaded without significant accumulated delays within the chain.
Advanced graphics such as user identify text, PiP input video format, audio meter bars, tally/UMD, reticules, and timecode can be burned into any PiP with full user attributes control. CEA 608 Ch1 text strings can serve as user text overlays, allowing direct closed captioning presence/quality compliance checks for up to 5 simultaneous video streams per unit. User-configurable Quality Check allows subjective criteria such as black/frozen frame or audio silence events to propagate an on-screen alarm/alert to the output image (such as alert text burn-in or border alert highlighting). Asynchronous inputs can be directly accommodated – each PiP input is provided its own independent timing alignment controls with lock to reference. An HDMI output (with audio embedding) allows direct feed to a wall monitor. GPIO allows direct input routing control and status monitoring. DashBoard™ remote control allows easy centralized control and monitoring access.
The compact standalone form factor allows desktop usage, as well as the 1/3-rack size of the BBG-1070-QS allowing 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).
