Another “STAR” Follows Cobalt Digital Home From IBC

AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands – Cobalt Digital has added another award to its growing collection of honours. The manufacturer of 3G/HD/SD-SDI conversion gear took home its tenth STAR award (Superior Technology Award Recipient) from the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at IBC 2012; this time for its HPF-9000 High-Power 20-Slot Frame.

The STAR Award is designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry. Mark Hallinger, TV Technology Europe’s editor, reviewed a variety of products, examined the technical applications and their overall contribution to the industry, and then chose 27 winners.

“STAR awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way,” said Hallinger. “The products selected help advance the industry–some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products.”

Cobalt’s HPF-9000 fits all the criteria! The 2RU high-density modular frame offers a significant 360-Watts of net (user) available power in a high-capacity 20-slot format. The HPF-9000 can accommodate two front loaded hot swappable PSU-9000 power supply modules with separate power cords for power redundancy to ensure 24/7 operation, features independent cooling fans and status LEDs, and provides an easily accessible front–mounted power switch. Rear modules offer a broad selection of interfaces such as BNC, twisted pair audio, and fiber for maximum flexibility. The unit features remote control and monitoring via Ethernet.

“We are delighted to add another STAR award to our Trophy Room,” exclaimed Chris Shaw, Cobalt’s executive vice president of sales and marketing. “The HPF-9000 is a fabulous tool, providing compatibility with both the Cobalt 9900 series Fusion3g cards as well as the 9000 series COMPASS cards. It features the same rear modules as the 8321 frame allowing a seamless transition from one to the other, and provides numerous input/output combinations to suit any requirements including mixed interfaces such as BNC, and balanced analog audio.”
