Miranda introduces single-card 3Gb/s HD-SD video, audio processor
Miranda Technologies has launched the XVP-3901, a new Densité Series 3Gb/s HD and SD video and audio processor.
The XVP-3901, which provides the functions needed for advanced signal processing on a single card, is well-suited for adapting feeds to match a facility’s house format. It can accept 3Gb/s HD and SD feeds and continuously deliver independent 3G/HD and SD outputs. The processor performs all the necessary up/down/crossconversion, color space and aspect ratio conversion to maintain the chosen output formatting, irrespective of the input format.
An optional fiber cartridge simplifies fiber installation and provides easy selection between fiber and BNC inputs/outputs. The processor supports AFD automatic aspect ratio control and offers background keying so that side panels or top and bottom panels introduced by up/downconversion can be filled with video or graphics.
The XVP-3901 also performs processing of 16 channels of embedded audio, with automatic delay of all 16 channels (four groups) to keep lip-sync.
