NBC selects Miranda to power broadcast signalling and control for Sochi
Michelle Clancy | 12-02-2014

As the athletes at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, continue to dazzle worldwide audiences, Miranda has revealed it is providing its Densite modular signal processing, iControl control and monitoring solutions and Kaleido multiviewers to NBC Olympics. It is the fifth Olympic team-up for the two.

NBC will use Miranda's solutions to help manage and prepare the vast number of signals the broadcast operations centre will receive from the various venues. Using Miranda's new Streaming Media Encoder (SME) card, NBC will create a closed-circuit IPTV monitoring system to view critical signals from any location equipped with an IP or Wi-Fi connection, giving easier access to more members of the broadcast team.

The production of NBC's telecast, as well as feeds provided for all of NBCUniversal networks and worldwide partner broadcasts, will be managed using a series of Miranda infrastructure components, including the Densite XVP-3901 up/down/cross converter. Broadcast signal feeds will be controlled by NBC operators using critical information powered by Miranda's iControl automated monitoring and Kaleido multiviewers.

"Our solutions are optimised for the rigors of fast-paced, live events, when there's extreme pressure to perform efficiently with the highest levels of quality," said Marco Lopez, president of Miranda Technologies. "NBC Olympics' continued confidence in our solutions for the highest profile sporting event in the world is testament to the quality of our solutions and the support we provide. We're proud to be part of their team of trusted suppliers."
