Cobra 2 Video Windows

Successor to the popular and flexible Cobra VME video windowing card, Cobra 2 is a high-performance, multi-input, video windows processor that can accept up to 12 videos per card and select up to 4 for display as windows on a high-resolution, digital flat panel or analog display. Video inputs can be TV, RS-170, RS-343, STANAG or high-resolution computer video up to 1600 x 1200 and 1920 x 1080, with considerable flexibility in the formats and video timings. In addition to video, an overlay or background high-resolution graphics signal may be input to the card as separate DVI or analog RGB video. The card supports a wide variety of display configurations including quad-video, picture-in-picture, full-screen zoom and alpha blending and cross mixing of video sources.

Cobra 2 requires only power from the VME bus and may be completely controlled over the Ethernet or RS-232 interfaces. Multiple video sources may be input and selected under software control for display in multiple windows. The output video may be displayed on a monitor using either the analog RGB output or the digital DVI-D output.

In addition to the multiple channels of video and RGB that are normally displayed as windows, Cobra 2 has a separate input for graphics overlay or background. This may be driven from any industry-standard graphics card providing an RGB or DVI graphics video from resolutions of VGA up to UXGA (1600 x 1200) or full HD (1920 x 1080). Chroma keying techniques are used to allow the graphics signal to overlay the video windows.
