Miranda Technologies has announced that ViVe TV, Venezuela's public service television network, has placed an order for a large volume of Densité Series signal processing cards for five new OB trucks.

The new trucks are all designed for operation with 12 cameras, and are to be assembled in Madrid by Miranda's Spanish distributor, Eurocom Broadcast. The OB trucks will be primarily used for satellite uplinking and live production of events.

"ViVe TV are saving a great deal of money, as well as space, with the Miranda signal processing system", said Francisco Menchen, Vice-President of Eurocom Broadcast.

"However, what's impressed them most, is the sheer depth and breadth of capabilities the Densité range offers for multi-format OB trucks. ViVe TV is confident the system will provide the quality and reliability required for live environments."

ViVe TV's five trucks can potentially handle conversion and synchronisation of up to 300 video and audio channels. Each truck will be equipped with three Densité frames, with up to 20 modules per 2RU chassis.

The signal processing includes 28 FRS-1101 SDI frame synchronisers with the proc-amp option for high quality, control and adjustment of incoming satellite feeds. These cards feature a frame synchroniser, full video and audio proc-amp controls, on board audio delay, processing and embedding, as well as test signal generation.

Twenty-seven UAP-1781 universal audio processors will handle the audio for the five trucks, with each card processing up to eight discrete audio channels. The input processing includes gain, video tracking delay, additional fixed delay and phase correction. The output processing block includes mixing, an additional gain/attenuation stage, and full channel shuffling. Each output channel is composed of a mix of any two input channels, allowing stereo to mono down mixes, voice-overs and custom-mix operations.

ViVe TV also ordered Miranda's DEC-1021 composite analogue video to SDI encoders, ENC-1101 SDI to composite/CVA/RGB encoders, and 74 SDA-1142 SDI distribution amplifiers.
