Miranda to launch NVISION Compact CQX router at IBC2009
Miranda Technologies will launch at IBC2009 the NVISION Compact CQX 16x2 router, which offers “clean and quiet” outputs for performing seamless video and audio transitions.
The Compact CQX router features two separate emergency bypass inputs to ensure signal passage even in the event of a power outage. This makes the device ideal for disaster recovery backup and bypass master control applications. It also can be used as a low-cost alternative to a master control system.
The new NVISION router can operate as a stand-alone unit and can also be driven by an external control system. It offers a 3Gb/s switch and support for either a multiple line or a frame buffer. The frame buffer allows the router to realign sources, which have nearly a full frame of offset, and switch them without any video artifacts or audio pops that can be associated with a transition of this nature.
The 3Gb/s/HD/SD router features two outputs, plus six auxiliary outputs for monitoring, and offers support of up to 16 channels of embedded audio. It offers selectable transition rates and multiple transitions types, including V fade, cut fade, fade cut and crossbar. It also offers support for HD and SD simulcast for multiformat applications.
The NVISION router range is available in a comprehensive array of formats, including 3Gb/s, HD, SD, AES, analog video, analog audio and machine control, in sizes from 8 x 8 to 32 x 32.
