HBO selects Miranda’s multi-viewers for new HD Studio

Montreal ? June 29, 2010 ? Miranda Technologies today announced that
Home Box Office (HBO), the award-winning premium pay television
service, has installed a Kaleido-X multi-viewer monitoring system in
its new HBO HD Studio, in New York, USA. The new studio is a one-stop
shop for shooting, editing, graphics, color correction, dubbing, and
cross-converting.

Two Kaleido-X multi-viewers are used to feed 12 monitors across the
facility, with large panel displays in the production, video/lighting,
tape and audio rooms. Multi-viewer outputs can also be routed to other
areas within the studio, including the stage floor and edit rooms.

The new multi-viewer system interfaces to HBO?s main Jupiter router to
help simplify day to day router crosspoint changes. Each multi-viewer
video window has multiple source and destination UMD labels that
display the source label at any given destination, as well as
destinations for any given source. This helps operators easily locate
available facility devices, and also helps avoid routing signals to
and from devices that are already in use.

HBO?s multi-viewer system uses many of Kaleido-X?s alarm capabilities,
including video loss, audio peaking, and video format change. The
multi-viewer automatically displays video in the correct format,
regardless of the type of feed going into the production switcher.

Advanced multi-viewer layout configuration software, called XEdit,
simplifies the creation of layouts for the different shows produced on-
site. The system gives HBO the ability to customize its monitoring for
every show independently, based on how many tape machines, cameras and
sources are being used for a particular program. It also offers rapid
drag and drop preparation, with automatic resize and alignment tools
for easy optimization of the monitor wall space.

Kaleido-X multi-viewers offer the highest picture quality, along with
unmatched flexibility in display configuration, and exceptional
resilience. Two frames are available with up to 96 inputs and 8 multi-
viewer outputs (7RU), or with up to 32 inputs and 4 multi-viewer
outputs (4RU), making it ideal for applications demanding high picture
counts per display.

Kaleido-X’s advanced Metadata extraction, signal probing, and alarming
capabilities also make it highly suitable for master control and head-
end environments. It offers triple rate 3Gbps/HD/SD performance, with
Stereoscopic 3D support. The multi-viewer can be tightly integrated
with routers to offer very large and versatile monitoring systems.
