Miranda Technologies will highlight integrated playout and on-demand solutions at the PBS Technology Conference (TechCon 12). The company will showcase its iTX integrated playout system in Booth 111 and will also present two papers that address file normalization and Video On Demand (VOD).
On April 11, John Wadle, senior sales engineer, will present “Normalizing File-Based Content for Playout.” He will review methods for normalizing files to a standard “distribution” format that will support both linear playout and parallel services, such as web streaming and VOD publishing.

The PBS Technology Conference is the premier annual gathering for broadcast engineers, information technology, and traffic professionals, as well as general managers and senior executives within public television.
