New Lip-Sync Probe Strengthens Miranda's Electronic Monitoring Solutions

Miranda Technologies has launched a new lip-sync probe module, called the Densité HLP-1801, which performs automated detection of video and audio synchronisation errors.
Marco Lopez, Senior Vice-President of Monitoring and Control at Miranda, said: "Traditionally, it's been difficult to monitor lip-sync errors in multi-channel playout facilities, but this can now be done automatically. Our HLP-1801 can instantly compare two points along the air chain, like the main out and off-air, satellite or cable returns and generate alarms whenever there's a lip-sync error."
The lip-sync probe integrates tightly with Miranda's Kaleido multi-viewers and iControl facility monitoring to create highly effective, low operating cost monitoring systems. These systems combine sophisticated electronic monitoring with Monitoring by Exception to enable a single operator to monitor many more channels simultanously simultanously.
The Densité HLP-1801 module features two HD/SD inputs for the reference and probed signals and is accurate to +/-1 ms. It support 16 channels of embedded audio on each input signal. In addition to lip-sync detection, it also performs video and audio presence detection.
As with other Densité products, an easy to use software utility allows each video and audio channel to be fine tuned with the correct alarm parameters to match the requirements of the given air chain.
The HLP-1801 is compatible with both Densité-2 and Densité-3 frames and up to 20 modules can be fitted within the Densité-3 frame. The probes can be houses alongside any other interface in the comprehensive Densité range, which includes more than 70 modules across all essential interfacing tasks, and all important signal formats.
