India’s Ideal Installs Miranda Systems At Century Communications

Ideal Broadcasting India Pvt limited, the Indian dealer for Miranda, has installed and supplied branding, master control, monitoring, and signal processing solutions for four new television channels at Century Communications. Century Communications is one of India’s leading media and entertainment companies.

Controlled from Century’s playout facility in Delhi, the new channels include Pragya, Mahuaa, Mahuaa News, and Mahuaa Music. Each channel will use an Imagestore master control and branding processor for video/audio mixing and channel branding graphics insertion, with control via four PresStation panels. The monitoring for the new channels will be performed using four Kaleido-Alto 10-input multi-image processors, which also provide signal probing capabilities.

The facility’s infrastructure is based on Miranda’s Densite signal processing modules, which perform up/down/cross conversion and synchronization, as well as Dolby encoding/decoding, 5.1 upmixing/downmixing, and embedding/de-embedding. This processing infrastructure uses 16 Densite Series frames, which can each house up to 20 multi-format modules.

“Miranda has a highly respected and successful reputation for assisting broadcasters with their transition to digital and HD throughout the world,” says Atul Jain, senior manager of technical operations for Century Communications Limited. “When Ideal presented the package to us, Miranda was the obvious choice. We were very impressed with the smooth installation and with the new efficiencies that we’ve achieved at Century.”
