Miranda awarded audio latency patent
Miranda Technologies has been awarded US Patent 8359417 for a process invented by its NVISION routers team to ‘dramatically’ reduce audio latency in its NVISION 8500 Hybrid Router series. Miranda’s NVISION hybrid routers are designed to significantly streamline television infrastructures and eliminate audio-to-video delay issues by incorporating highly advanced, integrated audio processing.
The method patented by the NVISION team reduces the delay inherent in most audio disembeders and re-embedders. With their patented design, NVISION routers are able to reduce the delay of the disembedder (typically 20 lines or 24 audio samples), the TDM (memory based time switch) audio crosspoint (typically one or two audio samples), and the embedder (typically 20 lines or 24 audio samples), down to as short as one line of delay when the video formats are the same, and up to three lines worst case with mixed video formats (like 625i/50 and 720p/59.94).
Scott Murray, Miranda’s senior vice president for Core Products, comments: “We have redoubled our commitment to disciplined innovation throughout our product range, evidenced most recently by the return of Chuck Meyer as chief technical officer for Core Products. Chuck’s previous tenure at the helm of NVISION means that he returns to us with a wealth of invaluable experience that we’ll leverage to the benefit of Miranda customers.”
