COBALT DIGITAL’S FUSION3G CONVERTERS DEBUT PERFORMANCE SCORES FOR NEP AT HISTORIC 3D BASEBALL BROADCASTS

NEW CONVERTERS INAUGURATED AT YANKEES / MARINER’S GAME AND HOME RUN DERBY

Urbana, IL • July 30, 2010 – Cobalt Digital’s new Fusion3G™ converters were on board NEP Productions’ two 3D production trucks as they provided coverage for MLB’s historic first 3D broadcasts.

The 9901-UDX 3Gig HD/SD-SDI up/down/cross converters were integrated into the mobile units as a universal tool to convert, frame sync and color correct incoming and outgoing feeds between formats, including up-converting to 1080p.

“We wanted a ‘one card does it all’ solution for 3gb applications in 1080 3D work, and the Cobalt Digital 9901-UDX models give us exactly what we need,? said George Hoover, Chief Technology Officer for NEP Broadcasting.

NEP used the 9901-UDX’s to frame sync incoming signals for the 3D production. Two copies of a 2D signal were created and an illusion of depth was generated by pixel shifting the right eye feed. The UDX then up-converted the left and right eye signals to 1080p for 3D monitoring.

The units were first used on NEP’s recently refurbished SS31 for the 3D production of two Yankees / Mariner’s games on July 10 & 11. The redesigned SS31 has been fully equipped with the latest 3D options. The converters were next utilized on NEP’s SS32, the company’s newest 3D production truck, as it debuted at the 2010 Major League Baseball Home Run Derby on July 12 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, CA, followed by coverage of the All Star Game.

Cobalt’s Fusion3G™ 9901-UDX is a 3G/HD/SD-SDI up/down/cross converter with multiple inputs/outputs, frame sync, and full-embedded audio and ancillary data support. Frame sync can select from multiple reference inputs, with failover to alternate selected sources.
