The Cobalt controller is designed to control all of ChyronHego’s robotic products. Cobalt accepts Genlock, guaranteeing proper synchronization with the virtual. By embedding a small Linux PC-based smart engine, easy setup is ensured.

Cobalt can be coupled with the Mercury control software with touch screen interface.

Our Precision Robotics

ChyronHego’s robotic product line is focused on one commitment: precision. In fact, the technology it relies on is so precise that camera moves may be predicted and anticipated to produce the exclusive unique feature known as Zero Delay. With this feature, neither video nor audio delay is required.

  • All robots are controlled by the Cobalt panel, but may also be driven by the Mercury software graphic and user-friendly control interface.
  • All robots are designed to provide perfect replicable motion, with variable adjustable speeds.
  • All robot data can be exported for further 3D use (post-production, repeatable motion, etc.)

Set-up is easy. Once the physical studio is measured and the cameras positioned, the calibration process is straightforward and can be accomplished in minutes.

Simply aim the camera on a few targets in the studio, save the positions, and the virtual set is registered. Data communication is based on the reliable vehicle CAN protocol, which guarantees the overall precision and strength.
