European Debut of New Technologies from Miranda

Miranda Technologies Inc. announced several key solutions will make their European debut at IBC 2012. Key advancements include Intelligent Audio Loudness Correction (ALC) end-to-end loudness monitoring, logging and correction; the new NVISION 8140 compact, enterprise-class router; Kaleido IP X100 IP multiviewer; and LUMO, Miranda’s new high-density fibre converter series.

Intelligent Automatic Loudness Correction (ALC)

Miranda’s end-to-end loudness solution includes monitoring, logging and correction using real-time processing during the playout workflow. Intelligent ALC uses information fed from a broadcaster’s traffic system to identify whether content has been corrected already — and dynamically avoids the unnecessary processing of content that has already been through loudness correction.

The end-to-end solution utilizes segment-aware loudness monitoring and logging, which has been added to Miranda’s Kaleido series multiviewers and is used in conjunction with Miranda’s iControl system, can accurately log the average loudness per segment, enabling easy creation of detailed reports at a later date to meet compliance and reporting regulations.

NVISION 8140 (NV8140) 8RU Enterprise Class Router

The NVISION 8140 provides all of the advanced features of an enterprise class router in a 144 x 288 matrix contained in just 8RU, and is ideal for mobile production suites and smaller studios. Part of the NVISION 8500 Enterprise Class router series, the compact NV8140 includes robust features typically found in larger routers —  redundant power supplies, control cards and crosspoints — but provides them in a form factor that’s perfect for space- and power-constrained environments.

LUMO High-Density Fibre Converter

Miranda’s LUMO, the highest density electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical converter available on the market today, will also be seen at IBC. LUMO packs 36 I/Os into a 1RU frame and its modular design enables each converter to be serviced while the unit remains in operation. The unit also includes dual redundant power supplies and frame controller with dual redundant IP-connections for comprehensive system monitoring and frame health alarming. LUMO uses the same SMPTE-compliant fibre SFP modules that are found on all 3Gbps products in Miranda’s portfolio. The platform’s unique cable management approach addresses connectivity concerns by providing fibre connectivity on one side of the unit with coax on the other, providing for easy separation of heavy copper cable from lightweight fibre.

Kaleido IP X100 IP Multiviewer

An extension of Miranda’s Kaleido-IP advanced IP-based multiviewer platform, Kaleido-IP X100 is specifically engineered as a cost-effective solution for smaller applications. Conveniently housed in a 1RU chassis, this multiviewer can handle monitoring of up to 24 SD or 8 HD video programs. For subscriber delivery applications, Kaleido-IP, when combined with Miranda’s iControl Headend monitoring solution, provides remote signal visualization and probing capabilities that dramatically reduce mean time to repair.

For broadcast playout applications, the Kaleido-IP platform solves the problem of monitoring a growing number of compressed sources by providing highly precise content probing and visualization capabilities that are fully integrated with alarm logging and workflow management systems. In combination with Kaleido-X and iControl Playout Manager, Kaleido-IP effortlessly examines multiple, compressed encoder and multiplexer output sources while also providing downlink monitoring capabilities.
