Miranda Technologies—Technology Showcase @ CABSAT 2014 (Of SatBroadcasting™ Interest—Event)

[SatNews] Miranda Technologies, a Belden Brand, will feature high-end production and integrated playout solutions at CABSAT 2014.
For production and playout applications, Miranda will highlight its NVISION 8500 Hybrid router, an enterprise-class routing solution that combines exceptional performance with demonstrable savings in cost, space and power. The 8500 range is available in five frame sizes, all of which include superior audio processing capabilities and simplified cable management systems. Also featured will be Kaleido-MX and Kaleido-Modular-X, class-leading multiviewers that combine performance with weight, space and power efficiency. Both multiviewers provide video scaling quality that delivers “any source, anywhere” processing with the flexibility to place any signal on any display at any size. Designed to exploit the advantages of lightweight, easy to install fibre, Miranda’s Telecast brand Fibre Solutions will demonstrate its CopperHead 3400 system, which includes a camera-mountable transceiver, base station and remote camera control panel that enables a range of high-end cameras to be connected and controlled via SMPTE 311M fiber.

A 4K UHDTV-ready CopperHead 3404K camera-mountable transceiver will also be on display. The 3404K needs only two strands of fibre optic cable to carry all bi-directional signals, including four 3Gb/s HD/SDI paths, for 4K productions from camera to truck or control room. Miranda’s world-class, highly integrated iTX playout platform for linear and on-demand television will also feature at CABSAT, with emphasis on iTX Master Control, which integrates playout with master control capabilities. The highly advanced “playlist aware” iControl signal and facility monitoring system that works with iTX proactively alerts and directs users to faults from one end of a signal chain to the other, no matter how extensive that chain may be. Optional iTXG dynamic rendering via Miranda’s acclaimed Vertigo XG graphics processor, which provides real-time CG, DVE and graphics capability directly into the iTX output server will also be demonstrated.
Miranda’s Softel brand will be represented by Swift Create V8, a caption and subtitle creation workstation that includes more than 20 new functions that vastly simplify the processes required to create, repurpose and manage subtitle files for multiplatform use. Captions and subtitles for content delivered to devices such as smartphones and tablets can now match the quality of their traditional broadcast channel equivalents.
Miranda’s solutions can be explored and discussed in Hall 5, Stand B5-10. More info regarding Miranda Technologies may be accessed at: http://www.miranda.com/
