Miranda To Highlight New Products at SATIS 2004New Imagestore options, extended Densité Series and more (October 14, 2004)
At the upcoming SATIS 2004 show, November 3 - 5, Miranda Technologies will showcase a number of new products and product enhancements at the Miranda Stand D-55.
Imagestore Intuition Channel Branding Graphics Generator Option
Miranda will be highlighting its new Imagestore Intuition channel branding graphics generator option for the Imagestore 2/2u branding processor, which allows the playout of dazzling graphics effects with multiple layers of crawls, rolls, and dynamic text, and a virtually unlimited number of animations. The graphics can be fully controlled by automation and by the much-enhanced Miranda PresStation master control switching and branding panel.
Imagestore Intuition provides instantaneous, multi-level animation and still playout, with timeline control for complex effects including single-shot, in-loop-out, and multi-loop animations. Vast animation storage is offered by multiple high-capacity SCSI hard drives, while rapid media loading is provided by Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.
The advanced character generator option for Imagestore Intuition is designed for highly automated, data-driven applications. It provides full creative freedom with respect to text styles, backgrounds, and the dynamic qualities of individual layers. Graphics template design is achieved easily with Miranda's versatile software suite.
Extended Densité Series Interfaces
Miranda's range of space-efficient, multi-format Densité Series interfaces has been further extended and now offers all the essential functions, including video/audio signal processing, frame synchronization, SD-analog conversion, HD downconversion, embedding/de-embedding, signal-measurement probes, fiber optic interfacing, and DAs. The modules feature advanced control over IP, with many cards providing streaming of video plus waveform/vector scopes over a standard network using the iControl desktop monitoring and control system. The new MSB internal monitoring router option for the Densité frame simplifies infrastructure monitoring by allowing the input video/audio to any module, in one or more Densité frames, to be monitored with a conventional scope and monitor.
Imaging Series XVP-801i Universal Video and Audio Processor
The new award-winning Imaging Series XVP-801i Universal Video and Audio Processor simplifies incoming feed processing with multiple SD and HD formats. This single module offers high-quality up-, down-, and cross-format conversion, as well as HD/SD signal processing, frame synchronization, and 16-channel audio processing.
HD/SD PresStation Master Control Switcher Panel
The new PresStation HD/SD Master Control Switcher Panel for Miranda's Oxtel Series HD and SD channel branding processors combines an ultra-compact hard panel for transition control with a separate, soft control screen for parameter adjustment and system monitoring. PresStation provides easy control of multiple transmission channels and can be used to control all the mixing, DVE, and graphics playout features of the branding processors.
New Features for Kaleido-K2 Multi-Image Display Processor
Miranda's Kaleido-K2 32-input, multi-image display processor for mission critical applications has also been improved with multiple new features, including the display of subtitling text, AFD detection, encoder automation support, and enhanced K-Edit display configuration software.
MDC-900/920 Downconverter and SER-900 HD Serializer Extend Camera Monitoring Interfaces
The DVC series of workflow-enhancing monitoring interfaces for Sony and Panasonic HD cameras also has been extended with the new MDC-900/920 downconverter and the SER-900 HD serializer. These two new interfaces are lower-cost, reduced-functionality versions of Miranda's successful DVC-800 downconversion and DV encoding interface for HD cameras.
