MLB Network installs integrated multi-image display and routing system
The new MLB Network, MLB’s 24-hour cable network set to launch on Jan. 1, 2009, has ordered a Kaleido-X multi-image display system and an NVISION NV8576 digital router to build a large-scale, highly integrated multi-image display and routing system for its new full HD Secaucus facility in New Jersey.
With the new system, the MLB Network will be able to monitor more than 500 video inputs over more than 60 high-quality multi-image display outputs. The multiviewer/router integration offers signal flexibility with the ability to display signals freely across multiple displays without restrictions on signal position, repetition, format or aspect ratio.
The monitoring displays will be installed in a number of areas at the new facility, including the master control, QC and ingest rooms as well as two large production control rooms.
The combined multiviewer/router system offers system resiliency with no single point of failure and cross-point redundancy. The Kaleido-X multi-image processor features an auto-recovery capability that automatically configures new cards loaded in a frame from other installed cards. Other benefits include dynamically updated UMDs using the router source labels as well as reduced cabling and easier installation with more streamlined hardware.
With a range of expansion options, the NVISION NV8576 router and Miranda Kaleido-X multiviewer enables reliable routing of up to 1152 video inputs and 128 multi-image display outputs without impacting the signal flexibility or quality.
