MENLO PARK, California (NAB Show booth #SL6313)—April 7, 2014— Abekas announced today the introduction of version 5.0 software for both Mira Instant Replay and Mira Production multi-channel video servers. The new software, which incorporates dozens of new features and enhancements to both products, is available as a free upgrade for all existing Mira customers.
The latest version of Mira software provides support for native recording of AVC-Intra-encoded media at both 50Mb/s and 100Mb/s data rates. Both versions of Mira now support AMP protocol over Ethernet. This simple, flexible and comprehensive interface allows Mira video channels to be controlled across a facility’s local area network.
Mira Instant Replay servers receive an improved GUI with larger PGM displays and a unique Count-Down Timer display. The Count-Down Timer provides the Technical Director with a clear status of the playback of events in a playlist. New features have also been added to the Playlist capabilities of Mira Instant Replay including; dual Playlist playback on two separate Program outputs and Playlist naming. A separate Auxiliary audio track can now provide a music bed or voice over to any Playlist—this makes game day highlights even more engaging.
In addition to existing support for embedded audio, AES audio is now available via DB25 connectors conforming to Tascam Digital or AES59-2012 standards. A new integrated audio routing feature allows any embedded or AES audio input to be recorded on any or all video channels. This dramatically simplifies the configuration and cabling of audio connections.
“Mira Instant Replay has become a major player for in-venue broadcasting and Mira Production is the workhorse video server for live studio production for tier-one broadcasters,” says Junaid Sheikh, CEO of Abekas. “The new features in version 5.0 are in response to customer feedback and make both versions of Mira even more powerful.”
