Vendors collaborate on new multi-viewer and router standard

Miranda has joined forces with NVISION, Pro-Bel and Utah Scientific to create a new interconnection standard between multi-viewers and routers.

The new MV-LiNK standard allows Miranda's Kaleido-X multi-viewer to be tightly integrated with NVISION, Pro-Bel or Utah Scientific upstream routers. As a result, a single 3Gpbs capable MV-LiNK can now provide interconnection for up to eight HD/SD signals.

"The MV-LiNK standard is ideal for building the very largest combined multi-image and routing systems, which offer the highest level of image quality, layout flexibility and robustness," Louis Caron, Multi-image Product Manager at Miranda said. "By offering an open standard between multi-viewers and routers, we're making it easier for broadcasters to select the optimum routing and multi-image combination, as they move to larger, more centralized monitoring systems."

The MV-LiNK allows the Kaleido-X multi-viewer to offer On-screen Mouse router control, as well as dynamically updated UMDs using the router source labels. Other benefits include reduced cabling and easier installation, and a lower overall system cost due to streamlined multi-image/routing hardware, with removal of BNC equalizers, cable drivers and reclockers.

The Kaleido-X multi-room, multi-image display processor offers the highest picture definition across all image sizes for the most critical monitoring applications. The processor also offers unsurpassed signal flexibility, with the ability to display signals freely across multiple displays, without restrictions on signal position, repetition, format or aspect ratio.

A range of expansion options allow the system to be scaled all the way up to 1152 video inputs and 128 multi-image display outputs, without impacting the signal flexibility or quality. The processor also offers exceptional resiliency, with an Auto-recovery capability that automatically configures new cards loaded in the frame from other installed cards.
