Miranda launches channel branding processors
Miranda Technologies will launch new master control switching and channel branding products at NAB, including the new Densité LGK-3901 single card 3Gbps/HD/SD branding processor and the NV5100MC multichannel master control switching and channel branding system.
The Densité LGK-3901 is the company’s first modular 3Gbps/HD/SD branding processor and is capable of inserting up to five independent layers of graphics. Three of the keying layers can be fed by internally stored still/animated graphics, and two layers are fed by external graphics devices. It also offers automated character generation, clock insertion, EAS support and eight-channel audio clip/voice-over playout.
Up to 10 of the LGK-3901 modules can be fitted in a single Densite 3RU to provide a high level of space efficiency. The LGK-3901 modules can also be combined with a wide array of other interfacing products from the Densite interfacing range.
The NV5100MC multichannel, master control switching and branding system (HD/SD) will be shown for the first time by Miranda, following its recent acquisition of NVISION. The system offers modular design, a choice of control panels and tight router integration. It also provides multichannel audio control with Dolby E decoding and a full preview. This combination of features makes it attractive for broadcasters who require effective manual intervention during playout.
The NV5100MC processor modules are housed in an 8RU frame, which can provide built-in routing for up to 64 inputs and master control switching for up to eight playout channels. The device incorporates redundant power supplies, fans and control cards.
