Canada’s T l -Qu bec upgrades its monitoring capabilities with Miranda’s Kaleido-X expandable, multi-image display system
Technologies today announced that T l -Qu bec, operated by the provincial
government of Quebec, Canada, has installed a Kaleido-X expandable, multi-image
display system in one of its production control rooms as part of a significant
upgrade to its Montreal facilities.
The Kaleido-X replaces T l -Qu bec’s previous monitor wall, which comprised 30
separate CRT screens. The new multi-image display system allows any of the
room’s signals to be displayed across four LCD screens.
‘With the Kaledio-X, no matter how large or small each source window is, or how
many times it’s repeated, the image quality is always brilliant’, explains
Michel S guin, Technical Director at T l -Qu bec.
‘It’s been a pleasure working with Miranda – the company’s reliable reputation
and vast experience in the industry was evident immediately with any issues
being resolved in a logical, quick and effective manner. We’re looking forward
to working with them on the next phase of the project.’
T l -Qu bec is upgrading its entire facility in stages to achieve Digital, HD
and 5.1 audio capabilities. Miranda has already delivered signal conversion
products from its Densit and Imaging ranges in preparation for the station’s
master control room refurbishment, along with another Kaleido-X system. This
next stage of upgrading is due for completion in December 2007, ready for
launch of T l -Qu bec’s programming in HD. A third KX has also been received
for a further production studio.
The Kaleido-X is a highly expandable, multi-image display system designed for
large scale, multi-room environments. Each Kaleido-X processor frame features
up to 96 auto-sensing HD/SD/Analog inputs, and up to eight multi-image outputs.
Multiple Kaleido-X processors can be linked together to create systems which
fully address the very largest monitoring requirements.
Kaleido-X multi-image outputs can be grouped to create large, highly integrated
monitoring systems. Alternatively, each output can be controlled completely
independently for multi-room environments, using one or more remote control
The system offers unmatched multi-image display quality for the most critical
applications, using patent pending scaling technology which allows the image quality
to be maintained over the full range of image sizes.
