Miranda Technologies Axino-400
Miranda Technologies,  has released added the Axino-400 to its Axino IP-based audio loudness processing platform, multichannel broadcasters that distribute content in MPEG format.

The Axino-400 bring the performance of the earlier Axino-410 high-channel count system for cable and satellite television operators to a scaled-down server that provides a reduced channel-count and a more cost-effective solution. Axino-400 enables broadcasters to monitor up to 40 channels from a single device, finding and correcting loudness irregularities using Miranda’s Automatic Loudness Control to ensure compliance with established loudness control mandates.

Axino-400 performs its measurement and correction processes in real time with no effect on video quality. In addition, audio processing can be optimised by selecting loudness control profiles that best match the specific type of programming and the speed of reaction required. The unit works by logging issues that are identified as problematic and placing them on a watch list. If the issues persist, Axino-400’s control capabilities restrict the programme audio to acceptable loudness parameters. The device also provides comprehensive loudness logs as proof to cable and satellite operators that the signal was within limits.

Axino-400 uses dual power supplies, and dual transport stream input ports with automatic switchover. The unit is also capable of operating in full backup mode using 1+1 redundancy.

‘Increasingly, broadcasters produce a large channel-count that requires monitoring and correction for each audio channel to ensure quality of experience and meet loudness requirements,’ says Scott Murray, Miranda Senior VP of Core Products. ‘Unfortunately, that can be costly, particularly in baseband, for broadcasters of any size.

‘The Axino range guarantees audio compliance at the compressed end of the signal path, ensuring no further anomalies can be reintroduced to already processed and compliant audio channels prior to distribution. Making that advanced processing available in the form of the Axino-400 ensures that those with more modest monitoring requirements can guarantee compliance without having to pay for processing power they don’t need.’
