CNBC HD+ turns to Miranda Imagestore 750
CNBC HD+, the new HD financial news channel from CNBC, is using a Miranda Technologies Imagestore 750 master control and channel branding processor to present more investor information to viewers.
The new CNBC HD+ channel incorporates an upconverted clean feed of the SD channel, which is used in 4:3 format on the left of the HD screen area, with HD graphics and tickers in the foreground. The space on the right of the screen area is used for supporting graphics, which lets the financial network deliver more financial data than it can on its existing SD channel.
CNBC's standard-definition channel shows only three major indices with variance and price at the top of the screen. In contrast, the new CNBC HD+ channel allows five indices to be shown. The real-time financial data is fed from the stock exchange, and the Imagestore 750's DVE enables the data to be displayed in different positions for prime time and weekends.
The Imagestore 750 processor also allows a second video stream to be made available to CNBC HD+ viewers, using a small window in the bottom of the HD screen.
