IMG mediahouse Simplifies Signal Management for First Major 3DTV Premier League Football Match Using Miranda's Hybrid Routing

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2011) - Miranda Technologies Inc. (TSX:MT), a worldwide provider of production, playout and delivery systems for the television broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV industries, today announced that its Hybrid routing was used by IMG mediahouse, a unit of IMG worldwide, the global sports, fashion and media company, to simplify the signal management for its first major World Feed 3DTV broadcast of a Premiership football match, which took place on Sunday September 18, 2011 between Manchester United and Chelsea FC.

Based in West London, the IMG mediahouse broadcast facility recently installed a NVISION 8500 Hybrid routing system with integrated audio processing to serve three 3Gbps/HD studios for its live productions. This facility is also used for the BBC's 'The Football League show' and by ESPN for 'Barclays Premier League' matches.

'The Miranda system sits as the hub of this very busy live facility, and we've been delighted with its performance across our new production studios and galleries. We wanted to build in capability for 3D workflow, and this system has accommodated it seamlessly', said Shane Warden, General Manager at IMG mediahouse.

'We're using a mix of 3Gbps, HD, SD, ASI, AES and MADI sources for our live sports productions, with all these formats handled by a single router frame. This high level of integration avoids video/audio latency issues, and also saves space and simplifies cable management'.

'By employing Miranda's modular hybrid technology, we can deliver flexible studio and gallery environments that cater for the next generation of 3Gbps 1080-50P and 3D live sport production', Warden added.

Miranda's NVISION 8500 Hybrid router integrates de-embedding, shuffling, break-away and re-embedding within a single frame. This means that everyday signal processing tasks, like swapping program audio tracks, can now be handled simply within the router frame. Advanced Hybrid router cards with audio processing can be mixed with regular input and output cards to minimize system costs.
