Miranda and Quest enable broadcasters to display viewer comments sent
from Twitter and other social networks

Montreal ? June 23, 2010 ? Miranda Technologies has partnered with
Quest Research & Development Corp. to offer on-air graphics systems
which enable broadcasters to display comments from their viewers, sent
via Twitter and other social networking sites.

?Our first system has been installed at a major New York City station,
which is using the technology to display viewers? Tweets on-air during
a live daytime news show. We believe it?s the first system of its kind
in the country, with viewer comments fully integrated with the
station?s channel branding?, says Clinton Ash, President of Quest.

?The system is based on Miranda?s Vertigo XG graphics processor and
Quest?s QLive server, which is used for receiving and censoring the
social networking messages. Approved comments are entered into a
queue, ready to be keyed on-air in a ?speech bubble? graphic.?

Many local stations now have a large following of viewers on their
Twitter and Facebook pages, and there has been considerable interest
in taking greater advantage of these social networks by displaying
viewers? comments on-air and encouraging more interaction.

Miranda?s Vertigo XG graphics processor is ideal for this application
in view of its advanced data-driven, dynamic rendering in HD or SD. It
provides highly versatile, multi-level character generation, animation/
still insertion and clip playout, as well as dual DVEs and audio mixing.

The QLive social networking tool is Quest?s latest graphics
application for local stations. Other applications in the company?s
range provide data-interfacing for EAS (Emergency Alert System),
school closings, elections results, time/temperature, traffic,
weather, station branding, breaking news, sports and financial data
graphics.
