Miranda Highlights Workflow Efficiency

"Television is changing," noted Miranda
CTO Michel Proulx in at the start of his
company's NAB press conference. "Broadcasters
are looking for new ways to provide
more of their content to more platforms with
He said that broadcasters around the
world have been telling Miranda the same
thing: "It has become a huge burden on operators
to deliver linear content that has just
aired via VOD (video on demand) and other
nonlinear delivery platforms."
In some cases, it takes more work to prepare
content for VOD than it takes to produce
the original content, he said.
With Miranda's acquisition of Omnibus,
the company now supplies solutions across
the entire playout workflow. Proulx said the
deep integration of Miranda's iTX IT-based
automation system with its new VOD Publishing
solution simplifies and automates the
process of preparing the original material for
catch-up TV viewing.
The company also announced it has expanded
its range of headend monitoring and
signal processing solutions with the Axino
multi-program IP transport stream loudness
control processor. And it has launched a
highly automated headend and edge monitoring
solution for pay TV operators that offers
end-to-end signal path and QoE monitoring.
