Housed in a rugged, Industrial chassis – the Cobalt C10-I is designed for demanding environments, in an ultra -compact form that is designed to be mounted in various ways.
The Cobalt C10-I Transmitter has the same, superior audio quality and sound clarity of all other Cobalt Transmitters, which is a result of its Direct to Channel Digital technology. The Cobalt C10-I does away with the Screen and front panel controls, and is setup and controlled via its web-remote, on either WiFi or LAN.
Running on a fully customised LINUX OS system, the Cobalt C10-I has a low distortion modulator. Inputs and outputs include Analog, AES/EBU, Digital MPX (AES192), Ethernet, USB, GPIO, GPS Sync with built in SFN capabilities.
The amazing market beating sound will let you stand out with it’s built-in 4 band Audio Processor with includes Bass enhancement, Pilot protection, Wide AGC and a whole bunch of expertly designed modern presets, so you sound great right from the start.
The advanced communication package with Intuitive web interface and remote control via Ethernet (https) lets you make changes or monitor the COBALT C10-I Transmitter. Full SNMP Version 3 management and the ability to send emails, alerts and monitor audio remotely gives you added confidence knowing you have full control from anywhere in the world on any device with a Web browser.
Easy access to all components and software controlled variable fan speed, will guarantee you low cost of maintenance .
The highest AC efficiency, a compact design and reduced weight mean low cost of transportation and far the lowest total cost of ownership in it‘s class.
