Miranda Launches Next-Generation Kaleido-MX Multiviewer
Miranda Technologies has launched Kaleido-MX and Kaleido-Modular-X class-leading multiviewers series engineered to combine performance with weight, space and power efficiency. The introduction of Kaleido-MX and Kaleido-Modular-X extends that leadership with no-compromise video scaling quality that delivers true “any source, anywhere” processing that enables the flexibility to place any signal on any display at any size without blocking or bandwidth limitations. Sources can repeat on up to four different displays without the need for an additional multiviewer.Available in an extensive range of standalone configurations from 8×1 to 48×4, and up to 64×4 in modular form, Kaleido-MX is equally at home in large studios and outside broadcast trucks. The possible configurations, which are delivered in either a 1RU or 3RU form factor, are specifically designed to be easy to understand, select, configure and install.
Kaleido-MX features outstanding picture quality for critical monitoring applications, seamless control — even across multiple rooms — and rich integration with any router or production switcher. The lightweight, easily cooled and ultra-quiet Kaleido-MX also boasts a compact design that requires significantly less power to run and its hot-swappable modules and power supplies ensure fast meantime to repair, even in the harshest environments.
The Kaleido-Modular-X will also debut, a modular series that enables monitoring systems to be created with a combination of versatile input/output cards, used as building blocks to simplify system design within a 3RU, air-cooled Miranda Densité 3 frame. The Kaleido-Modular-X modules use a powerful CPU to drive advanced features and provide excellent video and graphics quality with the ability, if required, to split processing between frames.
Handling sizes up to 64×4, Kaleido-Modular-X uses Miranda’s unique FlexBridge technology to reduce cabling requirements and remove the risk associated with HDMI extenders. FlexBridge is a coax cable interconnect that enables input and output modules to be connected within a frame or across multiple frames. This additional layer of flexibility enables input modules to be installed in a frame adjacent to the router while the output modules can be installed in a separate frame adjacent to the display.
