Century Communications adds Miranda master control solution
April 2, 2009
Indian media and entertainment company Century Communications has taken delivery of a Miranda Technologies branding, master control, monitoring and signal processing system. Miranda dealer Ideal Broadcasting India installed the system.
Controlled from Century’s playout facility in Delhi, the new channels include Pragya, Mahuaa, Mahuaa News and Mahuaa Music. Each channel will use an Imagestore master control and branding processor for video/audio mixing and channel branding graphics insertion, with control via four PresStation panels. The monitoring for the new channels will be performed using four Kaleido-Alto 10-input multi-image processors, which also provide signal probing capabilities.
The facility’s infrastructure is based on Miranda’s Densité signal processing modules, which perform up/down/crossconversion and synchronization, as well as Dolby encoding/decoding, 5.1 surround sound upmixing/downmixing, and embedding/de-embedding. This processing infrastructure uses 16 Densité Series frames, which can each house up to 20 multiformat modules.
