At NAB2006 in Las Vegas next month, Miranda Technologies will launch advanced aspect-ratio control features for its up-, down- and crossconverter.
Miranda’s XVP HD interfacing family will be enhanced with the new XVP-811i HD/SD converter. This new interface features sophisticated aspect-ratio conversion using the soon-to-be-standardized Advanced Format Descriptor (AFD). This allows broadcasters to manage aspect-ratio conversion automatically and effectively using embedded control signaling.
The converter also offers 5.1 to left/right downmixing for easy audio monitoring of downconverted HD signals. A Dolby E Metadata insertion capability provides efficient distribution of audio information across a plant, including dialog level and dynamic range control information. Additional key features include frame synchronization, video proc amp and audio processing with mux/demux.
