NAB 2011: Miranda To Show Fully Integrated, IT-Based Playout

Miranda Technologies will be highlighting its fully integrated IT-based playout system at the NAB Show in April. The Playout Glass Cockpit combines highly automated, multichannel content delivery, rich graphics, and advanced monitoring.

It integrates the iTX IT-based automated playout with Kaleido multiviewers and iControl Playout Manager facility monitoring. The system also incorporates a range of broadcast infrastructure products, including intelligent switching and loudness management.

iTX IT-based automated playout is at the heart of the system and uses enterprise-grade IT servers and software to unify and streamline ingest, media management, schedule management, asset management, automation, master control, graphics, and multiformat playout.

This monitoring and control system can incorporate high-performance electronic monitoring, using fingerprint detection for content identification and lip-sync–error measurement as well as loudness monitoring and correction. The electronic supervision allows a control-room operator to monitor more channels and respond more rapidly to signal problems.
