Canada’s Miranda Technologies Inc. is beefing up its Kaleido-IP advanced IP-based multiviewer platform with the Kaleido IP X100, making its debut at ANGA 2012. ?

The Kaleido-IP X100, specifically engineered for smaller applications, is housed in a 1RU chassis and can monitor as many as 24 SD or 8 HD video programs. For subscriber-delivery applications, Kaleido-IP, when combined with Miranda’s iControl Headend monitoring solution, provides remote signal visualization and probing capabilities the company says can help reduce mean time to repair.

Handling both MPEG-2 and H.264 (HD/SD) MPEG transport streams, Kaleido-IP X100 can serve as a single, dedicated IP multiviewer or it can be combined with additional Kaleido multiviewers to perform unrestricted IP and baseband source mixing across multiple monitors throughout a facility.??

According to Scott Murray, vice president/Multiviewer Products, "Intense competition in cable, satellite and IPTV delivery is driving operators to reduce costs while simultaneously increasing signal quality and reliability. The Kaleido-IP range provides remote signal verification and, in conjunction with Miranda’s EdgeVision, deep content probing tools that rapidly identify whether problems at unmanned hubs actually require expensive on-site attention. Quality of experience is assured, and unnecessary costs are avoided."?
