NAB 2013, Booth N2513 –Miranda Technologies, a Belden Brand, a global provider of integrated solutions for production, playout and delivery systems for television broadcasters and multi-system operators, will release a series of new options for its NVISION 8500 (NV8500) Hybrid Router Series at NAB 2013. The new options include a single, eight-input frame sync card, two powerful new control panels and a significantly upgraded router control system.
Traditional applications that require eight frame synchronizers also need eight processing cards. Now, Miranda has designed the NV8500 Frame Sync Input Card, a single input card that can take wild feeds or inter-facility signals of various video formats and sync them to a house standard. The card provides eight frame synchronizers with support for 3Gbps, HD and SD and helps reduce space, weight, power and cabling requirements by integrating this modular function inside the router. To add further value and functionality, the card also performs audio disembedding in addition to its frame sync functions.
The NV8500 router also now features the option of a new DEM/EMB Output Card, a hybrid, 16-channel disembedding and embedding card that provides a high degree of flexibility with the ability to embed audio into any embedded audio channel – anywhere - while preserving the integrity of other embedded audio channels. From any standard input card, the DEM/EMB output card enables the router to easily shuffle original embedded audio as required for each channel.
Miranda’s new, multifunctional NV9648 and NV9649 control panels are able to emulate existing control panels from a variety of brands and offer more third-party interfaces and options than any control panel on the market, thus providing an ideal replacement for those looking to upgrade to highly advanced levels of control.
Miranda has also launched a significant upgrade to its NV9000 Router Control System which includes an all-new tieline management architecture that is more efficient and scalable that ever, even when using hundreds of tielines. The release of “Dynamic Hybrid Pathfinding” (DHP), enables less expensive hybrid router configurations to have unparalleled access to internal processing functions. DHP is unique to Miranda and is designed to allow any video input access the smaller hybrid disembedding and embedding resources of a router in such a way that the operator has no reason to care about how the router hardware is configured. This provides an affordable way to easily maximize the potential of a hybrid routing system.
Additional new router control features include Web Suite, a browser-accessible status and control system, with new options to make it possible to gradually move from existing legacy routing systems to new, modern, 3G routing systems.
The extensive range of router upgrade options provide not only tightly integral command and control, but a powerful breadth of functionality that offer a straight-line route to facility modernization.
