NBCUniversal Awards Miranda Multi-Year, Multi-Million Dollar Routing Solution Contract

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Sept. 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 it has been awarded a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract by NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies, to supply routing solutions for its broadcast facilities across the USA.

NBCUniversal will be able to upgrade its core routing infrastructure while deploying Miranda's new NVISION routing systems at its main broadcast facilities in New York and Los Angeles, as well as other NBCUniversal production facilities throughout the US.

"We went through a very comprehensive review of router technology, and Miranda offers the routing systems and support that best meet our immediate needs, as well as a development road map which addresses our future requirements", says Ian Trombley, Executive Vice President of Technical Operations at NBCUniversal.

"We have worked closely with NBCUniversal for many years, and we are grateful for the commitment and trust that this routing system agreement represents", commented Strath Goodship, CEO at Miranda.

The first phase of this project is the consolidation of its core routing systems at NBCUniversal's main 30 Rock facility in New York. The new signal management system will be based on Miranda's NVISION 8500 Hybrid router. These routers can offer integrated embedded audio processing, along with MADI and fiber connectivity, and advanced N-on-1 crosspoint redundancy for the highest level of resilience.

A key element of the upgrade at 30 Rock is a phased migration to the NVISION 9000 control platform. This gradual transition will avoid disruption to day-to-day operations, as the new router infrastructure is deployed.

The new signal management system will involve a range of routers, from Miranda's largest NVISION 8500 Hybrid routers for main facility switching to the smallest NVISION Compact routers for utility applications.

To streamline operations, the production studios will use the embedded audio processing capabilities of the NVISION 8500 Hybrid router system, which include de-embedding, shuffling, break-away and re-embedding. This integrated processing saves space, power, cabling and costs, while also preventing audio to video latency problems.
