Miranda’s new M3 cable simplifies connectivity26 September 2013
Miranda demonstrated its new M3 integration cable at IBC2013, a product intended to simplify router to multi-viewer connectivity.
The Miranda 3Gbps router integration cable replaces 16 coax cables and connectors by assimilating them into a single, high-density cable structure. Miranda said this would enable seamless integration between Miranda Nvision routers and Kaleido-Modular-X and Kaleido-MX multi-viewers for integrators and installers, while reducing costs.
The company claimed that the M3’s support of SMPTE 424M would ensure that pristine 3Gbps video could be transported across double the cable length of competitive offerings. Additionally, the use of fewer cables sharply reduces interconnect complexity, cable volume and weight. Miranda said that this would not only improve cooling by removing obstacles to ventilation, it saves the time and expense of acquiring and deploying multiple lengths of traditional cabling.
Intended to liberate space in OB vans, the cable was developed through a collaborative effort between the Miranda development team and cable experts from within Belden.
