Miranda Provides Total Control And Visibility At WNJU Telemundo 47

Miranda Technologies, a global provider of integrated solutions for production, playout and delivery systems for television broadcasters and multi-system operators, has announced the completion of a facility-wide upgrade at WNJU “Telemundo 47” New York.
The upgrade applies to a significant portion of the WNJU operation and includes Miranda infrastructure, routing, multiviewers and central monitoring and control solutions.
As the Telemundo Network’s flagship station, New Jersey-based WNJU wanted to provide the greater New York Hispanic community with full HD services as well as put in place technology that would enable it to more efficiently manage content for multiplatform delivery.
WNJU’s director of technology & operations Lenny Stote said: “This was a complete rebuild that included infrastructure, monitoring and a core router installation. When searching for a partner with the expertise to enable us to achieve our goals, we needed to be certain we had a solution that would meet our needs today and keep us ready for our continually changing landscape. Miranda’s traditions of delivering scalability, flexibility and cost-efficiency through technology development, service and support track precisely with our driving goals. Because of that, we knew we had a like-minded partner, both now and in the future.”
Miranda’s solution includes an NVISION 8280 router frame populated with input/output cards that feed the entire facility, including a wide array of Miranda’s Kaleido-X and Kaleido-X16 multiviewers.
Multiple Densité 3 frames, which provide true multi-format operation, house cascaded Kaleido modular cards that feed the main control room monitor. By cascading the modules, WNJU can increase the picture count per monitor if desired without affecting image quality or processing speed, both of which are significant advantages.
The eight-display monitor wall provides a single reference point for full operational visibility, all of which can be conveniently controlled with a Miranda RCP-200 control panel.
Miranda’s iControl provides comprehensive facility monitoring and control, including all Densité modular products installed throughout the facility. The iControl configuration is also customized to handle tally management, which provides the benefit of being able to see program and preview tallies from WNJU’s switcher in all displays throughout the facility.
Stote added: “This pain-free installation has resulted in a new broadcast system that works beautifully and is testament to Miranda’s robust technology, full understanding of our requirements and ongoing support in taking us where we want to be.”
