Miranda KMX-3901-IN-16-D 16 input HD/SD-SDI and 3 Gb/s input module with dual FlexBridge outputs - KMX-3901-IN-16-D

Kaleido-Modular-X is a flexible and scalable 4K- and IP-ready multiviewer for TV production that's optimized for the space, power and weight considerations found in studios and outside broadcast trucks. Modular design allows for easy configuration to desired I/O size. Unique FlexBridge coax cable bridging between the input and output modules allows for the installation of the input stage next to the router or sources — and the output stage next to displays — for simpler, cost-effective cabling installation with none of the risk associated with HDMI extenders. Split input and output modular system offers scalability both on the input and output side for future-proofing your investments as production needs increase. With space at a premium and the ever-present need to reduce overall weight in your production trucks, Kaleido-Modular-X offers the ideal multiviewer solution.

For IP inputs, see the KMX-3901-IN-IP 10 GigE IP Input Module for the Kaleido-Modular-X Multiviewer.

Key Features

Space-efficient modular design

  • Modular design offers wide range of input/output configurations, with optional separation of input and output stages for streamlined, cost-saving cabling and optimization of space usage

  • Standard Densité frame housings enables "mix-and-match" capability of multiviewers with signal processing modules, URS frame reference and GPI I/O via GPI-1501 cards for best use of your frames to reduce rack space

Unique FlexBridge technology

  • Flexible coax cable bridging between input modules and to the output modules

  • Expand multiviewer beyond the number of slots within a single frame by bridging additional input or output modules housed in a different frame

  • Install input stage next to the router and the output stage next to the displays to eliminate the HDMI extenders

  • More robust than cascading with bypass relay protection to remain on-air even when removing a module

Unmatched image quality

  • Unmatched multiviewer picture quality, and superior on-screen graphics, for the most critical monitoring applications and high-end TV production requirements

  • Simultaneous HDMI and SDI outputs at full 1080p50/60 resolution on up to four multiviewer displays

  • Input signal processing up to 3 Gb/s signal formats

  • Natively capable of handling 4K quad-link sources seamlessly recombining them into a pixel perfect image

Robust and serviceable design

  • Hot swappable cards with unique Auto-Recovery feature provides fast automated recovery after a "cold" spare insertion into the frame

  • 1 RU and 3 RU Densité frame housings with redundant power supplies and quiet cooling

Multiroom, multiuser oriented

  • A single Kaleido-Modular-X multiviewer can be used to share sources across multiple rooms or operator positions, with fully independent displays, audio monitoring and control panels dedicated to each operator

Seamless control across multiple multiviewers

  • Kaleido multiviewers can be "mixed-and-matched" with others to create a seamless monitoring system across a facility

  • Choice of multiple control options such as standalone RCP-2 / RCP-200 panels, integrated with router control systems and panels, iControl and third-party control systems

Superior layout flexibility

  • Ultimate level of layout flexibility, with unlimited signal repetition and sizing across all displays, without blocking, grouping restrictions or bandwidth restrictions

Router and switcher integration

  • Fast and easy NVISION router to multiviewer installation with M3 integration cable which also offers space and weight reductions

  • Kaleido-Modular-X offers rich integration with NVISION router family, and third-party routers and production switchers for tally and label/alias source management

  • Multiple multiviewers can be controlled from a single control panel

Scalable for the largest systems

  • Virtually limitless multiviewer system expansion with upstream NVISION router

  • Can create combined multiviewer/router system with 1,152 video inputs, 288 multiviewer outputs

Advanced probing and alarming

  • Closed captioning and teletext subtitling display and alarming to ensure compliance with regulation, includes XDS and AFD

  • Software licensable Dolby E metadata extraction for metering and content alarming without the need of expensive hardware decoders

  • Sophisticated on-screen alarm displays for clear operator alerts.  Supports multicolor and blinking statuses based on severity, latching and status message
