(Montreal, Canada--September 3, 2013) Miranda Technologies, a Belden Brand, a global provider of integrated solutions for broadcasters and Elemental Technologies, the leading supplier of video solutions for multiscreen content delivery, announce that a joint demonstration, showcasing a fully integrated multichannel playout, transcoding and monitoring solution will be featured on the Miranda stand, 8.D41 at IBC 2013.
The demonstration will highlight the companies’ respective technologies with a combination of Miranda’s iTX integrated playout platform, Kaleido multiviewers and the iControl video network management systems with Elemental
® Live video encoders and Elemental® Conductor video management system. The integration of these technologies satisfies the growing need for broadcasters to playout content to multiple platforms from an integrated environment and protects investments in video infrastructure as the industry evolves.
Simulated channel content originated from Miranda’s iTX output servers will be forwarded to Elemental Live encoders where simultaneous processing and encoding of multiple adaptive bit rate outputs will enable high quality, high-efficiency live video streams to be delivered to a broad range of devices such as PCs, tablets, smartphones and more.
Miranda’s director of strategic marketing, Boromy Ung, said, “The seamless integration of these technologies at IBC will illustrate an unprecedented level of channel origination, distribution speed and functionality. The result is a high quality viewing experience, optimized for each multiplatform device on which the content is consumed.”
The demonstration’s video processing and distribution processes will be managed by Miranda’s iControl, a highly advanced content monitoring and control system used in conjunction with Miranda’s Kaleido multiviewers to enable operators of multichannel playout facilities to closely monitor the quality, performance and destination of all channels.
Elemental Live is a software upgradable video processing system that creates multiple adaptive bit rate video outputs to deliver live streaming to any device. Elemental Live is designed to integrate seamlessly into end-to-end real-time playout platforms such as Miranda’s iTX to optimize multiscreen video delivery. Elemental Live encoders are administered by Elemental Conductor, a scalable software system that provides control and management of multiple Elemental Live units.
Elemental VP of marketing, Keith Wymbs, said, “The encoding performance and flexibility of Elemental Live coupled with the power of Miranda’s iTX delivery platform provide a streamlined and upgradable architecture that removes any barrier to high quality multiplatform content delivery. I’ve no doubt that broadcasters and playout facility owners visiting IBC will be impressed by what can be achieved with this elegant combination.”
The demo will be ongoing at IBC 2013 on Miranda’s stand, 8.D41. For more information, visit http://www.miranda.com
