NAB 2012: Miranda Streamlines Production Workflows
Miranda Technologies will highlight multiple new solutions at Booth N2512 that reduce operating costs by streamlining content production and delivery workflows.
“We’re presenting many new systems to address key challenges facing broadcasters, including the need for improved facility connectivity, more effective loudness compliance, and smarter signal management,” says Marco Lopez, senior vice president at Miranda. “We’ll also introduce systems which automate VOD mastering, better integrate playout, and simplify social media graphics.”
For broadcast infrastructures, Miranda will launch a significantly expanded fiber range that offers simpler connectivity within and between facilities, including a new, ultra-high density fiber to-and-from electrical converter system. It will also highlight its new, end-to-end loudness monitoring, logging and correction solutions, which offer more effective CALM Act compliance, using audio processing that’s adapted to best suit in-house and ‘wild’ feed content.
For production studios and trucks, Miranda will showcase its signal processing, routing, and monitoring systems that integrate tightly with production switchers and audio mixers to deliver more flexible and more responsive operator workflows.
Enhanced, integrated playout solutions for broadcasters and playout facilities will incorporate automated VOD mastering, advanced graphics with social media capabilities, and end-to-end local/edge monitoring. Based on the iTX automation and playout platform, these solutions reduce operating costs and simplify facility scaling for new channels and platforms. New capabilities include advanced centralized operation for highly efficient management across hub and spoke facilities.
For cable/satellite/IPTV operators, Miranda will also be showing its market-leading headend/edge monitoring and control solutions, which allow service providers to reduce their monitoring costs while increasing the effectiveness of their monitoring activities, all the way to the set-top box. These systems encourage a faster and more precise response to any faults, reducing the mean time to repair and greatly improving the quality of experience of the viewer at home.
