Miranda launches PresStation HD/SD multi-channel master control switcher panel

Miranda Technologies has announced the launch of PresStation, an ultra-compact, fully featured, and highly affordable multi-channel HD/SD master control switcher panel.
PresStation operates with Miranda's Oxtel Series Imagestore master control and channel branding processors to provide unmatched channel branding graphics capabilities, including clip playout, dual 3D-DVEs, automated character generation, and four layers of animation/clock insertion.
The new master control switcher panel will be unveiled for the first time at NAB 2004 on Miranda's booth (SU10129).
"PresStation shares many of the characteristics of the larger and highly successful Presmaster 2 panel. It provides full manual control of HD or SD video mixing with multi-group audio, as well as multi-level channel branding graphics," said Neil Sharpe, vice president of marketing at Miranda. "Despite all this sophistication, it's remarkably easy to use, and new operators will immediately feel comfortable with the panel."
PresStation features include a hard panel for transmission control and a separate soft screen for fast set-up and effective monitoring of transitions and channel-branding media. Each panel can access to up to 80 video sources fed from an external dedicated router or a large station router.
One or more operators can control up to 200 HD or SD transmission channels. Monitoring of multiple channels is simplified by PresStation's integration with Miranda's Kaleido-K2 multi-image display processor, which allows the video monitoring display to be changed with transmission channel selection.
PresStation can control of up t o six hours of video/audio clip playout per channel for moving backgrounds, branding interstitials, and emergency playout material. It can also control dual 3D-DVEs for dual picture-in-picture effects and sophisticated squeeze backs; up to four layers of animated image/clock insertion; automated voiceovers; and automated character generation with Emergency Alert System (EAS) support. With control of up to four groups of audio mixing, PresStation can be used for multi-lingual and 5.1 broadcasts.
