9978-ANC-MON 3G/HD/SD-SDI Ancillary Data Monitoring Probe

9978-ANC-MON

3G/HD/SD-SDI Ancillary Data Monitoring Probe with Multiple-Protocol Data Payload SDI/HDMI Display and Fault Detection/Forwarding

The Cobalt® 9978-ANC-MON 3G/HD/SD-SDI Ancillary Data Monitoring Probe with Multiple-Protocol Data Payload SDI/HDMI Display and Fault Detection/Forwarding provides an easy to use, economical solution that offers comprehensive ancillary data monitoring/”probing” to validate and ensure expected presence and handling of ancillary data in SDI streams.

Unlike expensive and hard to use waveform monitors or typical test systems, the 9978-ANC-MON is an economical openGear®-based solution that monitors and shows status in “plain language” on-screen overlays. The 9978-ANC-MON user interface is designed from the ground up to be used by everyday operations personnel and not just engineers. The status burn-in overlay is available on the card SDI output as well as a convenience HDMI output that can be directly connected to a wall monitor. In addition to its user interface, the 9978-ANC-MON can integrate with automation systems via its IP and SNMP interfaces.

The 9978-ANC-MON is an unprecedented first in the high-density openGear® based card form factor that fits in your existing openGear environment without the need for expensive, delicate, bulky test gear. The 9978-ANC-MON supports and offers monitoring for many data packages such as closed captioning, SCTE 104, 608-XDS, AFD and others, providing not just presence/absence status but also interpreters that parse the payload and display it as a burn-in. Also included standard is a continuously running display of ATSC A/85 LKFS loudness. Full user DashBoard™ or Remote Control Panel remote control allows full status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network.
