Miranda and Elemental Collaborate on Multiplatform Delivery at IBC 2013
MONTREAL --(Business Wire)--
Miranda Technologies (News - Alert), 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
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 vide 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
