Miranda Densite 3DX-3901I almost want to tell you where the yearly Miranda Technologies press conference will be held, just because company CTO Michel Proulx is so entertaining and educating. I learn more about technology and solutions at his press conferences than all the others combined. By the time the press conference was over, I better understood a range of 3-D terms: over/under, side-by-side, anaglyph, and interaxial adjustments and about a half-dozen other common 3-D labels and technology, but I digress.

As if to emphasize his company's 3-D expertise, Proulx did a portion of his press conference using 3-D displays and 3-D Web screen captures from the Masters golf tournament. How's that for nifty?

To help broadcasters and content providers step into stereoscopic 3-D production, Miranda is releasing a number of new products. The Densite 3DX-3901 (PDF link) signal processor will convert multiple 3-D formats including dual 1.5Gb/s, single 1.5Gb/s, dual 3Gb/s, and single 3Gb/s with side-by-side encoding and Sensio side-by-side encoding. (See my brief on Sensio in a later blog.) Monitor functions include anaglyph, difference-disparity, and left- or right-eye displays. The 3DX-3901 processor card offers horizontal and vertical flip and interaxial adjustment.

(Watch BE TV's coverage of the 3DX-3901 here.)

Miranda is also showing a new 3-D option for the Imagestore 750 (PDF link) channel branding processor. It now provides four stereoscopic 3-D branding layers with single 1.5Gb/s signals and two stereoscopic branding layers with dual 1.5Gb/s signals using internally stored 3-D graphics or single/dual fill and key inputs.

The company's line of Kaleido multiviewers has been upgraded for 3-D applications. The Kaleido-X (96x8), Kaleido-X16 (PDF link) (16x2) and the Kaleido Modular (8x2) all can monitor stereoscopic 3-D signals with support for dual 1.5Gb/s and single 3Gb/s signals.

If you need to work in 3-D space, Miranda has solutions on display in booth N2515. Of course they also have a full range of other new products on display.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
