Miranda Intros Ultra-Quiet X16 Multiviewer for Mobile Units
Miranda Technologies has launched an ultra-quiet, 1RU multi-viewer, called Kaleido-X16, with 16 video inputs, two multi-viewer outputs, and an integrated 16×2 router.
“Kaleido-X16 offers the same unmatched picture quality, extreme layout flexibility, and ease of use as the larger Kaleido-X processors. With the same core architecture and software tools, the Kaleido-X16 will look and feel to operators like any other multi-viewer within the Kaleido-X family. Any of the video inputs can be displayed, any number of times, at any size all the way up to full screen, and at different display resolutions and orientation, without bandwidth limitations”, says Marco Lopez, Senior Vice-President, Monitoring and Control at Miranda.
Kaleido-X16 can be used with 3Gbps/HD/SD and Analog video. It provides highly effective 3D Stereoscopic monitoring with signals that conform to SMPTE-372M or SMPTE-425M Level B.
With its ultra-quiet design, the multi-viewer can be installed next to the operators in small control rooms and mobile applications, although it can also be paired with routers to create the very largest combined multi-viewer and routing systems. Kaleido-X16 offers seamless integration with the NVISION router family, and third party routers, to allow expansion up to 1152 video inputs and 144 multi-viewer outputs.
Using Miranda’s ‘Cluster Concept’, multiple multi-viewers connected to a routing infrastructure can behave like a single multi-viewer system from an operator’s perspective, with full layout flexibility and a small failure block. The entire system can offer seamless control of the source assignments via On-screen Mouse operation or by a router control panel.
The Kaleido-X16 multi-viewer provides advanced internal signal probing capabilities, including the display of Closed Captioning, WST (subtitling), XDS and Dolby Metadata. It can also be integrated with Miranda’s XSupervise application for multi-channel, highly automated signal monitoring and alarm management.
The multi-viewer offers the ease of use which typifies the Kaleido-X family, with fast layout preparation using XEdit, intuitive On-screen Mouse control, and a choice of control panels.
