Miranda, a video product company, makes devices that allow production companies to display inputs/outputs and other information from their video sources. Below is a link to their Kaleido X. They offer two rack mount units that are capable of creating some extraordinary monitor walls. We use three of their smaller units called the Kaleido-Alto-HD’s. They’re 1U rack systems that drive three plasmas and display our inputs and outputs. They’re used to show cameras, video decks, graphic inputs and then MLE preview/program windows. We’ve been using these since we moved in around this time in 2006. So, basically these units have been on for 2 years straight and 2 of them have actually failed. One lost a PSU and one has fried it’s MOBO. To me, that’s highly disappointing that we’ve had 2 die already irregardless of uptime (I don’t think 2 years is a lot).
Well anyways, the purpose of this post, is to show you this link to the Kaleido X which can be configured to accept 1,100 inputs and up to 128 SEPARATE display outputs each displaying their own layout and images.
So without further ado… visit Miranda’s website to check out this video
