Miranda To Launch Multiple Master Control and Branding Products At NAB
Miranda Technologies will launch multiple new master control switching and channel branding products at NAB, including the new Densité LGK-3901 single card 3Gbps/HD/SD branding processor. Miranda will also show the NV5100MC fully featured, multi-channel master control switching and channel branding system, which can be integrated with the Intuition XG co-processor for advanced graphics.
The Densité LGK-3901 is the first modular 3Gbps/HD/SD branding processor, and is capable of inserting up to five independent layers of graphics. Three of the keying layers can be fed by internally stored still/animated graphics, and two layers are fed by external graphics devices. It also offers automated character generation, clock insertion, EAS support, and eight channel audio clip/voice-over playout.
Up to 10 of the LGK-3901 modules can be fitted in a single Densite 3 frame (3RU) to provide a high level of space efficiency. The LGK-3901 modules can also be combined with a wide array of other interfacing modules from the comprehensive Densite interfacing range.
The LGK-3901 is ideal for pre-rendered graphics, and integrates tightly with Miranda’s Xmedia Suite graphics preparation, asset management, and data interfacing workflow tools.
The new Branding Panel features an advanced ‘Button on LCD’ interface, and is designed for Miranda’s Densite LGK-3901, Imagestore 750 and Vertigo XG branding processors. This highly graphical, touch screen panel provides informative and easy to use control. It can operate of all the graphics and audio functionality across multiple channels, with a channel ganging capability. Channel branding media can be browsed easily from the panel using a thumbnail display.
The NV5100MC multi-channel, master control switching and branding system (HD/SD) will be shown for the first time by Miranda, following its recent acquisition of NVISION. The system offers cost-effective modular design, a wide choice of richly featured control panels, and tight router integration. It also provides versatile multi-channel audio control with Dolby E decoding, and a full preview. This combination of features makes it ideal for national and regional broadcasters, who require effective manual intervention during playout.
The NV5100MC processor modules are housed in an 8RU frame, which can provide built-in routing for up to 64 inputs, and master control switching for up to eight playout channels. The resilient design incorporates redundant power supplies, fans and control cards.
The NV5100MC can operate with the Intuition XG graphics co-processor and the Xmedia Suite graphics automation to provide the richest channel branding graphics, with streamlined workflows.
