Climate Change Conference Use Miranda

A leading manufacturer of high-performance hardware and software for the television broadcast industry, has announced that the broadcast of the United Nations Change Conference (COP15) in Copenhagen, was performed using Miranda Technologies routing and signal processing equipment.
Attendees this year included US President Obama as well as Head of States, Senior Politicians and Officials from 192 countries. Representatives from many worldwide NGO organisations where also in attendance.
As expected, COP15 received extensive press and media coverage. To provide the COP15 TV/radio media infrastructure and management, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs awarded the Host Broadcaster Contract to a three-way partnership group, consisting of TV 2|DANMARK, Danmon Systems Group and East Productions.
The Miranda equipment at the Bella Centre was installed by Danmon Systems Group, and was used in the infrastructure of an International Broadcasting Centre (IBC) for journalists and media staff of the television and radio broadcasters.
A media city with 160 workspaces for broadcasters was built, each of which had the facilities needed to receive live video and audio from the two plenary rooms and from five press-conference rooms.
Also available was - infrastructure handles connectivity to a TV-studio, many stand-up positions, wireless cameras, radio cabins, editing facilities and satellite uplinks/downlinks webcasting, SNG trucks and international feeds.
Primary routing during the event was performed with an NVISION 8280 3Gbps/HD/SD Enterprise Class Router together with a VSM router control system. This router can be configured to offer a matrix of up to 288 x 576 signals, and provides flexible control with a high level of resilience.
The router system feeds a large Densite HD/SD signal processing infrastructure, which involved nearly 100 frames and several hundred interfacing cards. This system includes Miranda’s latest interfacing products, like the XVP-3901-FS 3Gbps/HD/SD frame synchronizer/ARC and audio processor, along with a large number of fiber conversion and video/audio distribution cards.
Danmon Systems Group’s Project Manager, Peter Thomsen commented: "The installation in the Bella Center includes an extensive fiber backbone and an estimated 180 kilometers of video/audio cable, feeding approximate 4,400 individual outputs."
