Belden’s Telecast Fiber Systems brand is being integrated into its recently acquired Miranda brand, examples of which are currently on display at IBC2012. Belden, with Miranda’s routing, infrastructure and monitoring solutions and Telecast’s fiber connectivity portfolio, now offers solutions from camera to control room and beyond. This capability provides convenience, improved efficiency and flexibility for customers in a critical, rapidly changing, resource constrained area. “The goal is to improve the customer experience,” said Strath Goodship (pictured), president of Miranda. “By offering our customers a single-call solution for sales, deployment and support — from acquisition through playout — we’re offering great value. By integrating our technological resources and developing new solutions that open new doors for our customers, we’ll deliver value that no other supplier can.” On display at IBC will be two new demonstrations that highlight the complementary nature of the Miranda and Telecast portfolios. In the first, a Telecast CopperHead transceiver will be mounted to a camera feeding signals via fiber to and from the Miranda truck production demonstration. In the other, a small POV (point of view) camera will be the centerpiece of an interactive demonstration that highlights the efficiency of fiber connectivity through remote monitoring and robotic control. www.miranda.com
Integrating the facilities world
Sometimes a technological idea starts in one place and travels round the world. This is the current trend in studio and outside broadcast truck design, as UK and other European systems companies, like MHz, work on projects in their home countries and then take innovations - including hybrid audio routing - to other territories.
