This week at BroadcastAsia2017, Cobalt is introducing a system that combines frame-accurate SCTE 104 trigger (FAST) insertion with enhanced HLS SCTE 35 streaming on a single platform.
Built for both openGear frames and Cobalt BBG-1100 Series stand-alone units, the FAST-Stream system is a comprehensive solution for providing HLS streams with frame-accurate boundary points complete with the SCTE 35 metadata contained in the associated manifest file.
Being displayed at booth 6H3-01, the visitors will see how the FAST-STREAM OTT system interfaces with automation and uses timestamps to insert metadata frame-accurately into baseband SDI. The system also performs high-quality H.264 encoding designed to meet sophisticated streaming delivery requirements in real time.
Another new product on the show is the 9902-UDX-DSP-CI channel integrator and 3G/HD/SD-SDI/CVBS up/down/cross-converter. Cobalt said this converter provides the “densest signal conversion and processing tool set available” for conforming incoming analogue and digital audio and video signals and their associated metadata to meet sophisticated content- and channel-delivery requirements
