Miranda to show new render service at NAB
Making its first NAB appearance will be Miranda’s iTX Render Service for Adobe After Effects CS6 software. The iTX Render service is a new approach to graphics creation designed to insert the full creative power of After Effects CS6 into the playout workflow. Other NAB firsts will include a new frame sync input card for the NVISION 8500 series of hybrid routers and a new, high-density streaming media encoder, the SME-1901, which will be added to its acclaimed Densité modular range.
Instead of using a real-time character generator to play back graphics templates, Miranda’s iTX Render Service automates and manages rendering of Adobe After Effects projects into fully finished graphics, ready for playout from an iTX integrated playout platform or Miranda’s Vertigo graphics processors. Benefits are said to include the removal of creative limitations within an Adobe After Effects authoring tool and the ability to publish those complex, rich graphics on multiple channels from a single source.
The NVISION 8500 Hybrid Router Series Frame Sync Input Card will also be available for demonstration at NAB. This new input card contains eight input ports and allows easy synchronization of incoming wild feeds or signals moving between facilities. The NVISION 8500 offers eight frame synchronizers on a single card, with 3Gbps, HD and SD all supported on the same module.
Also on display, the SME-1901 streaming media module is suitable for a wide range of IP monitoring applications (CATV or core router monitoring/audio/video production capabilities/remote over IP), combining high density with high quality to perform H.264 video and AAC audio encoding for up to 20 streams per frame. Multiple sources, in-plant and remote, are available over in-house IPTV to anyone who typically requires access. It supports all common streaming protocols and has six-port 3G/HD/SD distribution amplifier with support for fiber I/O via SFP cartridge.
