Miranda Technologies Announces IBC Preview

Miranda Technologies will be highlighting its strengthened production studio signal management and monitoring systems at IBC 2011 (8.D41), as well as its integrated IT-based playout solutions, which combine the iTX automation and playout with advanced graphics and monitoring systems.
To simplify monitoring and signal management in production studios and trucks, Miranda has enhanced the integration between its NVISION 8500 Hybrid routers with audio processing and its high quality Kaleido multi-viewers, as well as with third party production switchers.
By using advanced integration software, these combined multi-viewer and router system behave like a single solution to reduce studio complexity and also increase system flexibility, redundancy and scalability. This high level of router/multi-viewer integration also provides advanced source tracing from the router across multiple studios, with powerful tally capabilities.
The NVISION 8500 Hybrid 3Gbps/HD routers at the core of these studio systems provide built-in, embedded audio processing to save space and costs, while also streamlining source control and cabling. This audio processing also avoids the signal timing issues associated with the use of external de-embedders/embedders in studios.
For playout facilities, Miranda will be showing its enhanced IT-based content delivery solution, which tightly integrates the iTX automation and playout with its graphics workflow tools, and advanced facility monitoring. This system also incorporates multiple broadcast infrastructure elements, including intelligent switching and loudness management.
The high level of integration within this playout system delivers substantial cost and workflow efficiencies, and it allows facilities to improve their channel to operator ratios, while also increasing their overall quality of service.
The iTX automation and playout at the heart of this solution uses enterprise grade IT servers and software to unify and streamline ingest, media management, schedule management, asset management, automation, master control, graphics and multi-format playout. This architecture reduces the complexity of a facility and maintenance requirements. It also provides unprecedented resilience and scalability, along with exceptionally fast new channel deployment.
The playout system's advanced monitoring capabilities are provided by Kaleido family multi-viewers and iControl Playout Manager facility monitoring, which are tightly integrated with the iTX automated playout. For instance, the multi-viewers highlight the next event information from the automation, and the facility monitoring shows the health of the overall playout system, including the IT servers and IP network.
