Miranda Lands Deal with Beijing Television; Expands Leadership Team
Miranda Technologies, a provider of integrated solutions for production, playout, and delivery systems for television broadcasters and multi-system operators, has closed a deal with Beijing Television (BTV) to supply three of Miranda’s NVISION 8144 routers along with Kaleido-Modular multiviewers and Densité modular products.
Sophie Wang, president of Miranda Technologies Asia said, “We featured the NV8144 at the BIRTV 2012 show in Beijing earlier this year, which enabled us to demonstrate first-hand the significant advantages we offer in routing technology. The NV8144 is part of our NV8500 Enterprise Class router series that boasts video/audio hybrid routing, high signal density and superior performance in a range of matrix configurations and form factors.”
The NV8144 includes advanced features such as redundant power supplies, control cards and crosspoints within its rectangular 144 x 144 matrix within its ultra-compact 8RU frame. NV8144 offers seamless integration with Kaleido-Modular multiviewers, where multiple multiviewers can behave like a single virtual system from an operator’s perspective, with full layout flexibility.
Installation at BTV is expected in the first quarter of 2013.
Miranda Expands Leadership Team
Miranda is expanding its leadership team to support its growing solutions portfolio.
Marco Lopez, formerly the company’s senior vice president for Infrastructure, Routers and Monitoring, was promoted to president effective November 1, 2012. Lopez is responsible for all of the company’s operations worldwide and reports to Strath Goodship, Miranda’s chief executive officer. Scott Murray will assume Marco’s role as senior vice president for Infrastructure, Routers and Monitoring.
“Marco is an outstanding leader who has helped Miranda achieve tremendous success, especially while leading our team through several product acquisition integrations,” said CEO Strath Goodship. “His advancement to president comes during very exciting times for us as we finalize the integration into Belden and move forward with our strategic growth plans. Our customers, partners and employees will benefit from Marco’s vision and his demonstrated ability to adeptly leverage Miranda’s abundant resources to provide customers solutions in our rapidly evolving industry.”
To ensure that Miranda continues to be a leading innovator that anticipates market trends and customer requirements, Lopez is creating a Strategic Marketing Group. The Strategic Marketing Group will work to align Miranda’s product roadmaps to the target applications of Playout, Production and Delivery to the home and will help communicate the value of those solutions to our partners and customers. Boromy Ung, most recently the head of Miranda’s playout segment marketing, will assume leadership of the group effective December 1, 2012.
“Miranda is committed to providing customers the next level of innovation,” Lopez emphasized, “As our portfolio continues to grow we’re dedicating additional resources to develop the unique solutions that will empower our customers now and in the years to come. Michel Proulx, who announced he will retire on December 31, 2012 as Miranda’s Chief Technology Officer, has built a strong foundation of aligning Miranda’s priorities to customer opportunities that Boromy and his group will build upon.”
Proulx commented, “I’ll continue to be a keen Miranda supporter, knowing that the company is well positioned for enduring success as the broadcast space develops toward an exciting future.”
