Sinclair Chooses Miranda HD Upconversion for Affiliates
Sinclair Broadcast Group selected Miranda Technologies as a provider of upconversion and channel-branding equipment, as part of an upgrade that will enable most Sinclair-owned stations to accommodate pass-through HDTV. When Sinclair distributes the HD content to its affiliates, the local stations can use Miranda's Imaging Series QUC-801i upconverter modules to combine the feeds with their upconverted material, and add in their own local channel branding in HD using Oxtel Series Imagestore HDTV processors. The equipment is set to be in place at most stations owned or operated by Sinclair by the end of the year.

Imagestore HDTV is a modular channel-branding processor that can be used for applications such as logo insertion, multilevel image insertion and data-drive character generation. The processor can be controlled by a compact control panel, the Gallery soft panel or by the PresStation and Presmaster 2 master-control switching and channel-branding panels.

"This is a great solution for our many local stations because it's small and efficient and can be integrated easily by on-site personnel within their local environments. The equipment will serve as anchor equipment that stays with each station for future build-outs and studio retrofits," said Harvey Arnold, Sinclair Broadcast Group's director of corporate engineering.
