Miranda's Cockpit System Helps Galaxy Plot Its Course

Hong Kong-based Galaxy Satellite Broadcasting (GSB) has installed Miranda's "Glass Cockpit master control system in its new exTV pay-TV service. GSB exTV is an all-digital, 32-channel satellite TV service that offers programming in Cantonese and Mandarin.

The Miranda Master Control Glass Cockpit system uses 20 Kaleido-K2 multi-image display processors; 34 Imagestore 3/2 master control switching and channel branding processors with a Presmaster 2 master control panel system; an iControl Web-based control and monitoring system; Densité Series video and audio Control Probes for signal measurement and confidence monitoring over IP; and other Miranda systems to support this infrastructure.

"In order to build a reliable center for exTV broadcasts, we wanted to place all monitoring functions for all the channels and systems in one central location," said Jim Butler, managing director at Ideal Systems Asia Pacific--the company that installed the glass cockpit system.
