Miranda wins two awards for Densite XVP-3901 single card 3Gbps/HD/SD video and audio processor

September 26, 2008 

Montreal, Canada - September 26, 2008 - Miranda Technologies has announced that it has won two industry awards for its new Densite XVP-3901 single card, 3Gbps/HD/SD video and audio processor.

The XVP-3901 has been awarded a Pick Hit award from Broadcast Engineering magazine and a STAR award from TV Technology magazine.

‘These two awards, along with our first major network order for the XVP, represent a great start for this game-changing processor’, says Gilbert Besnard, Director – Infrastructure Management, at Miranda Technologies.

‘With the XVP, broadcasters are now able to use a single module for high quality video and audio processing instead of using multiple interfacing cards and dedicated devices. A one card solution minimizes costs, simplifies video and audio integration, and also substantially reduces cabling requirements.’

Ideal for adapting feeds to match a facility’s ‘house format’, the XVP-3901 accepts 3Gbps/HD/SD feeds, and will continuously delivers independent 3G/HD and SD outputs. It will perform all the necessary up/down/cross conversion, color space and aspect ratio conversion to maintain the chosen output formatting, irrespective of the input format.

An optional fiber cartridge on the XVP-3901 simplifies fiber installation, and provides easy selection between fiber and BNC inputs/outputs. The processor supports AFD automatic aspect ratio control, and offers background keying so that side panels, or top/bottom panels, introduced by up/down conversion can be filled with video or graphics.

The XVP-3901 also performs processing of 16 channels of embedded audio, with automatic delay of all 16 channels (four groups) to keep lip-sync. Full audio processing, including shuffling, down-mixing, dynamic processing (limiter, compressor, and expander), as well as four AES input and four AES output channels, are available as options.
