Miranda and NVISION collaborate on routing system
Technologies and NVISION have launched one of the largest high-quality
multi-image/routing systems. The routing systems results from a tight
integration between Miranda’s Kaleido-X multi-viewer and NVISION’s new NV8576
Large-Matrix Digital Multi-Format Router and router product line with native
3Gig capability. The system can be expanded to provide up to 1152 HD/SD video
inputs and 128 multi-image display outputs.
“This combined system enables the very largest broadcasting facilities to
benefit from Kaleido-X’s unmatched image quality and extreme layout
flexibility’, says Marco Lopez, Senior Vice-President, Monitoring and Control
The rich multi-viewer/router user interface integrates joint functionality such
as source text tracking and on-screen mouse router control. Along with simpler
and tighter integration and reduced cabling costs, the combined Miranda/NVISION
system offers the ultimate level of resiliency, with no single point of failure
and true cross-point redundancy.
“A key strength of this cost-effective system is the flexibility to choose
between router outputs and multi-image outputs, which is easily done by
adjusting the quantity of router output modules and multi-viewer interconnect
modules fitted to the router’, said Chuck Meyer, President and CEO of NVISION.
‘This offers the ability to scale the system to suit individual users, while
also providing an easy growth path for the future.’
In the largest configuration, two NV8576-Plus router frames are fed by 1152
HD/SD video inputs, connected to 16 Kaleido-X multi-viewer frames, to provide
128 multi-image display outputs.
The system offers tight integration between the devices, with control over IP.
An operator can dynamically assign sources that are connected to the router, and
source assignments can be saved on the layout presets. By recalling a layout,
the router is instantly reconfigured.
Source names are dynamically updated in the UMDs by extracting source data from
the NVISION source database. This interface is available with any NVISION
router through NVISION’s NV9000 Router Control System.
