NBCU Picks Miranda Routing System For Broadcast Upgrade

Publish date:

NBCUniversal will deploy Miranda Technologies' Nvision routing system at its broadcast facilities across the U.S., under a multiyear, multimillion-dollar deal.

Details of the deal weren't disclosed.

In the first phase of the project, NBCU plans to consolidate core routing systems at its main 30 Rock facility in New York.

The new signal management system will be based on Miranda's Nvision 8500 Hybrid router, which provides integrated embedded audio processing, MADI and fiber connectivity, and "n-on-1" crosspoint redundancy. NBCU also will initiate a phased migration to the Nvision 9000 control platform in New York as the new router infrastructure is deployed.

"We went through a very comprehensive review of router technology, and Miranda offers the routing systems and support that best meet our immediate needs, as well as a development road map which addresses our future requirements," NBCU executive vice president of technical operations Ian Trombley said in a statement.

Miranda provides production, playout and delivery systems for broadcast, cable, satellite and IPTV companies. The Montreal, Canada-based company has about 680 employees worldwide.
