Miranda IBC 2011 Preview: Miranda launches easy to use, Kaleido-XQUAD quad-split multi-viewer for truck and studio monitoringMontreal, Canada, 2011-08-09
Miranda Technologies Inc. (TSX: MT), a worldwide provider of infrastructure, playout and monitoring systems for the television broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV industry, today announced that it will be launching its easy to use, standalone Kaleido-XQUAD quad-split multi-viewer for truck and studio monitoring at IBC (Hall 8, Stand D41).
“Kaleido-XQUAD brings even greater simplicity to the Kaleido family”, says Louis Caron, Senior Product Manager at Miranda. “It’s an ultra-compact, super-silent processor which is ready to go straight out of the box, without the hassle of assembling modules or configuring options.”
“What’s more, cost-effective large monitor walls can be achieved using multiple individual quads with inexpensive displays, whilst offering the assurance of a very small failure block at just 4 inputs - perfect for mission critical applications and live production.“
The quad-split operates with the same software as the larger Kaleido family multi-viewers and, because of Miranda’s cluster feature, unlike other basic quad split processors, the Kaleido-XQUAD can be logically linked to more quad split processors for large monitor wall quad views and operated seamlessly as one system.
To streamline production operations, the Kaleido-XQUAD processors offer tight integration with NVISION and third party routers, with source control and centralized mnemonic database access. It also offers tight integration with many third party production switchers, with tally support via direct serial interface.
Kaleido-XQUAD is available in two versions: Kaleido-XQUAD features four 3Gbps/ HD inputs and a single multi-viewer output (HDMI/HD-SDI), and Kaleido-XQUAD-DUAL offers eight 3Gbps/HD inputs and two multi-viewer outputs.
Both versions offer exceptional image quality and display flexibility, along with outstanding space and energy efficiency, using a 1RU, half 19” frame chassis with silent ventilation for installation within studios.
To simplify signal management and avoid signal timing problems during live production monitoring, the quad-split also offers ultra-fast processing, which avoids the need for complex audio delay compensation.
