NAB 2013: Miranda Technologiesâ€™ iTX Render Service To Make Show Debut
Miranda Technologies, a Belden Brand, a global provider of integrated solutions for production, playout, and delivery systems for television broadcasters and multi-system operators, has announced several new solutions it will demonstrate at NAB 2013. Additionally, the company announced that, for the first time, the Miranda stand will showcase cable and connectivity solutions from its parent company, Belden, as well as its full range of Telecast Fiber Systems solutions.
Making its first NAB appearance will be Mirandaâ€™s iTX Render Service for Adobe After EffectsCS6 software. The iTX Render service is a completely new approach to graphics creation that inserts the full creative power of After EffectsCS6 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 DensitÃ© modular range.
iTX Render Service
Instead of using a real-time character generator to play back graphics templates, Mirandaâ€™s iTX Render Service automates and manages rendering of Adobe After Effectsprojects into fully finished graphics, ready for playout from an iTX integrated playout platform or Mirandaâ€™s Vertigo graphics processors.
Benefits 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.
NVISION 8500 Series Frame Sync Input Card
As part of Mirandaâ€™s commitment to continuing higher-level integration that saves broadcasters space, power, and money, the NVISION 8500 Hybrid Router Series Frame Sync Input Card will be available for demonstrations at NAB. This new input card contains 8 input ports and allows easy synchronization of incoming wild feeds or signals moving between facilities. Traditional applications requiring eight frame synchronizers used eight processing cards. Now, the NVISION 8500 offers eight frame synchronizers on a single cardâ€”with 3Gbps, HD and SD all supported on the same module.
SME-1901 Streaming Media Module
The SME-1901 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.
4K Technology Demonstration
As broadcasters prepare themselves for the technological demands of 4K production and programming, so does Miranda. On the booth at NAB 2013, Miranda will demonstrate a series of solutions that are already suitable for 4K production, including routing and monitoring technologies that will play a key role in enabling broadcasters to reach this much anticipated â€œnext big thing.â€
