Miranda Introduces Advanced Router Controller

News Image
Miranda Technologies Inc, a global provider of integrated solutions for production, playout and delivery systems for television broadcasters and multi-system operators, announces key improvements to its NVISION 9000 router control system.
These system improvements enable new customer options for router system upgrades thanks to uncompromising, bi-directional communications with all NVISION routing systems and many legacy, third-party router systems. This provides total confidence once a connection is established, and takes can be requested via established tie-lines from any control system within the facility.
Marco Lopez, Miranda’s vice president of Infrastructure and Routing, said, “Broadcasters are often faced with ageing infrastructures and the prospect of cripplingly expensive upgrade paths — especially with routing systems. The next-generation NVISION 9000 controller, and its associated transition program, eliminates many of those obstacles by providing centralized, integral command and control and a straight-line route to total modernization — at a fraction of the cost of alternative options. No other manufacturer has invested the engineering resources required to deliver this level of control and integration with legacy technologies.”
With the new NVISION 9000 (more info at, existing routing infrastructures can be completely modernized in a painless, three-step progression. SD systems can migrate to 3Gbps/HD without scrapping an existing routing and control system. Miranda’s seamless bridging to legacy routers with the NVISION 9000 enables the user to minimize disruptions as the transition takes place, but at a modest cost when compared to a complete overhaul.
Lopez added: “A routing system is a significant long-term investment. Ensuring ongoing interoperability between new devices and old equipment typically requires a long and expensive transition period that can put a painful strain on CAPEX budgets. Fortunately for broadcasters actively considering such a migration, the introduction of the new NVISION 9000 control system has made it far easier operationally, and at a price point that won’t frighten the finance director.”
Miranda’s complete routing system transition plan includes three easy steps.
Step one includes adding a hybrid NVISION router with 3Gbps/HD capabilities under a supported legacy, third party controller. The NVISION router’s transparency preserves the investment in the existing control system and requires no operational changes.
Step two involves expanding the new routing system with added capacity and the advanced NVISION 9000 controller and control panels, which can also operate many third-party controllers. The new control system enables the facility to integrate tie-line control and use virtual sources and destinations. This dual-control approach still preserves the original investment because both control systems are bi-directional, meaning that all panels can see all routers in the system.
Step three provides the highest level of control and flexibility with a full switchover to the new NVISION 9000 controller and panel system that includes drivers for the legacy routing infrastructure via its native control protocol. This allows the use of advanced panels throughout the system, for multi-hop tie-lines, plus virtual source and destination status indicators.
Lopez concluded: “One of the significant advantages of the NVISION 9000 approach is its highly advanced tie-line control for connectivity across a mix of multiple old and new routers. With advanced tie-line control, the NVISION 9000 controller calculates the most efficient path from router to router and instantly makes the connection. All the user has to do is select a source and destination without worrying about the background complexity.”
