NAB To Highlight Miranda Switching

Miranda Technologies is launching two low cost, high performance master control switching and channel branding systems at NAB.
These are called Imagestore-Modular+ and Imagestore-Modular.
Imagestore-Modular+ offers the full breadth of channel branding capabilities, including clip/animation playout for advanced graphics effects.
This HD/SD processor can provide up to 80 minutes of clip playout for partial or full frame branding and promo graphics. It uses a space and energy efficient, dual card design, with up to four channels housed in a single 3RU Densite frame.
The processor is designed for pre-rendered graphics, and can provide up to five layers of keying.
Three layers can be fed by internally stored stills/ animations, one layer is for clips, and one layer is for external graphics devices with fill/key outputs.
Graphics capabilities include automated character generation and EAS insertion, as well as clock and temperature insertion. Other features include AB video mixing with 16 channel audio mixing, and 8 channel voice-overs with audio clip playback.
The Imagestore-Modular+ package includes Miranda's Vertigo After Effects plug-in and Vertigo Xplorer graphics automation tools, which offer easy to use, and highly productive graphics generation, asset management and publishing.
By using Adobe After Effects for graphics creation, the system offers a familiar workflow, and the ability to create world class graphics. It also provides highly streamlined batch rendering and easy quality control.
The Imagestore-Modular variant is similar but it does not include the integrated clip playout. It's a single card, 3Gbps/HD/SD processor, which offers up to 10 channels of master control switching and channel branding in a 3RU Densité frame.
Master control features include AB video/audio mixing (16 channels) plus voice-overs. Designed for pre-rendered graphics, it can provide five layers of keying (using three internal stores), character generation and EAS, as well as clock and temperature insertion.
Imagestore-Modular can be controlled via automation using the widely adopted Oxtel protocol, and by manual control using the PresStation master control panel or the compact Branding Panel.
