OG-PC Computer Card
The new Cobalt Digital OG-PC is an x86 computer on an openGear card. Representing a unique approach to terminal gear system design, the OG-PC takes full advantage of the redundant power and cooling features of the openGear frame. Meanwhile, its modular form factor saves on rack space by replacing bulky 1-RU PCs. This innovative new product will be on display at IBC2018.
