KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Unmatched image quality
Multi-room oriented
›› Unmatched multi-viewer picture quality, and superior on-screen graphics, for
the most critical monitoring applications.
›› A single Kaleido-X multi-viewer can be used to share sources across multiple
rooms, with fully independent displays and control panels. Multi-room display
layouts can be prepared easily with the XEdit software (see page 544).
Highly resilient
›› Frames designed to avoid a single point of failure, and include hot swappable
cards and PSUs. Unique Auto-Recovery feature provides fast automated
recovery after a ‘cold’ spare card is inserted in the frame.
Advanced Metadata extraction, probing and alarming
›› Integral Metadata extraction, signal probing and on-screen alarms. Metadata
extraction includes Closed Captioning/Teletext and AFD/WSS, as well as Dolby
E (dialnorm, program configuration and audio level meters).
Seamless control across multiple multi-viewers
›› Kaleido-X multi-viewers can be ‘mixed and matched’ with other Kaleido
multi-viewers to create a seamless monitoring system across a facility, and
this can deliver exceptional cost, space, and power efficiency (see page 538).
Triple rate performance with Stereoscopic 3D support
›› 3Gbps/HD/SD/Composite performance with Stereoscopic 3D support (Dual Link
1.5Gbps, SMPTE-292M).
Layout flexibility
Router integration
›› Ultimate level of layout flexibility, with unlimited signal repetition and sizing
across all displays, without blocking or grouping restrictions.
›› Kaleido-X offers rich integration with the NVISION router family, and third
party routers, to allow expansion up to 1152 video inputs and 96 multi-viewer
outputs (see page 579).

Multi-channel playout monitoring with single multi-viewer
Kaleido-X’s flexible architecture makes it highly suitable for multi-pod, playout monitoring applications.
Each pod can have an independent display layout, with independent control using a dedicated remote panel.
All sources can be shared across the pods, which allows easy pod layout changes to handle more or fewer channels, as
commonly happens during night shifts with reduced operator crews.

Kaleido-X: highly robust design
The Kaleido-X system incorporates highly robust frame design for
dependable 24/7 operation. The 7RU and 4RU modular frames feature
multiple points of redundancy, and no single point of failure. Each output
module has its own processor, operating system and external connections.
Kaleido-X’s Auto Recovery feature enables a new output module with a
different software/firmware version, IP address or configuration, to be
automatically reconfigured by the other cards in the system once inserted.
This process can be performed within 90 seconds of a new card being
inserted, without intervention from the user. This represents a true hot
swap process for critical monitoring applications.
The 7RU and 4RU frames both use front loading, hot swappable modules
and power supplies. All the modules are independent, and there is no
single module that can cause the system to fail. The Kaleido-X system also
offers multiple failover scenarios, an easy upgrade process, and detailed
system status and logging. The processors use a real-time Linux based
operating system, and data is distributed for redundancy.
Kaleido-X’s Auto Recovery feature enables a new output module with a different software/firmware version, IP address or
configuration, to be automatically reconfigured by the other cards in the system once inserted. This process can be performed within
90 seconds of a new card being inserted, without intervention from the user.
570
By using Kaleido-X’s mid-plane expansion module, two Kaleido-X (7RU)
frames can be connected to display up to 192 video inputs over up to 12
displays. This configuration provides easy system expansion without losing
any of Kaleido-X’s extreme signal flexibility, due to the full interconnectivity
of video, audio and Metadata, as well as timecode and control signals.

Kaleido-X: creating a larger system using two 7RU frames
Kaleido multi-viewers
Kaleido-X: unmatched picture quality & display elements
Picture quality
The Kaleido-X system offers unmatched picture quality, using Miranda´s Polyphase scaling
technology. Windows can be resized all the way from very small windows up to full screen
display, without the loss of definition that is commonly associated with multi-viewers. This high
performance, combined with superior on-screen graphics, makes Kaleido-X ideal for the most
critical monitoring applications.
Audio meters
Kaleido-X can display four group, multi-channel audio for multi-lingual and 5.1 applications.
Audio level meters are extracted from analog, AES or embedded signals, and can be positioned
inside the video window in transparency or outside. Ballistics and scales are configurable, and
a phase correlation meter can be displayed with each pair. Dolby E audio can be extracted from
an embedded audio signal for on-screen metering. An audio meter can readjust itself based on
inserted Program Configuration Metadata.
Automatic aspect ratio control and safe areas
Aspect ratio and safe area markers can be positioned over video windows to simplify multiformat monitoring. Free form safe area markers, based on a user’s bitmap, can be overlaid on
top of each video window. This feature is useful to protect graphical content or branding that
will be applied downstream after production.
The processor can automatically change a signal’s aspect ratio between 16:9 and 4:3, based
on the Active Format Description (AFD), Wide Screen Signaling (WSS) or source resolution.
Image formatting rules are followed during conversion, including letter/pillar boxing and resizing/
cropping.
Dynamically updated UMDs
Text labels (UMDs) can be displayed inside or outside windows, and updated by a UMD
controller. Dynamic text can be driven by NVISION and many third-party routers, and by some
automation vendors. Kaleido-X also offers a serial interface for leading production switchers,
which provides tally updates as well as sources and destination labels. Text fonts are flexible
and support UNICODE for multi-lingual texts.
Clocks and timers
Multiple analog and digital clocks/timers (with date) can be displayed with programmable offsets
and configurable colors. The clocks/timers can be driven by LTC, referenced internally, or to an
NTP server. Each output module features three independent LTC inputs.

Picture-in picture and display customization
Picture-in-picture displays can be generated for easy comparisons between playout and return
feed signals or for the playout server’s backup confidence monitoring.
Bitmap images can be displayed to customize the display background with channel logos and
other graphics.
Signal validity monitoring
The following parameters can be detected and presented on-screen, or reported to SNMP-based
signal and facility monitoring systems, including Miranda’s iControl systems:
Video probing

Metadata monitoring
›› video black
›› audio silence
›› video frozen

42 & 47) is presented in the
format seen by television
viewers in their homes
TV-PG-SV
Probing points can be configured with different thresholds, and a specific probing zone within
the video can be configured for the freeze and black detection.
Loudness / Dolby E monitoring
In addition to displaying the Dialnorm value encoded in the video signal, Kaleido-X processors
can also measure the perceived Loudness of the audio signal and compare it to the encoded
value. The system can alert operators when signals exceed thresholds, by comparing the
Dialnorm and measured Loudness against a target values. The Loudness is measured using
LEQ-A or ITU-R-BS-1770.
Loudness out of range
Expected: -27 dB
Dialnorm: -26 dB
Loudness: -32 dB
Display of Closed Captioning, Subtitles and XDS data
Closed Captioning and Subtitles are presented in the format seen by television viewers in their
homes. XDS data, including Vchip information, can also be overlaid in each video window, along
with the Dolby E Metadata, AFD/WSS formats, and audio/video signal format.

Kaleido-X: sophisticated alarm displays
The Kaleido-X offers very sophisticated alarm display elements, which are activated when video/audio, Metadata or SNMP
alarms are detected. Informative text and graphics alert operators at the monitor wall, with color coded on-screen alarm
status indicators. These status indicators can be configured to latch the status, in case of sudden faults that cannot be
intercepted by the operators. Acknowledgement mechanisms are available, with interaction by On-screen Mouse.

Kaleido-X offers exceptional audio performance, with the ability to monitor
up to 2304 channels of audio per 7RU frame (1536 embedded audio
channels plus 768 discrete audio channels), including embedded, discrete
AES, or discrete analog.
The amount of cabling needed for discrete (non embedded) audio is
minimized by the Audio Bridge Terminals, which accept analog (balanced
or unbalanced) and digital audio (75 ohm or 110 ohm). The Audio Bridge
Terminals can fit in the back of racks, and can be located up to 800 feet
(250 m) away from a Kaleido-X frame, with connection over standard video
coax. With this configuration, it is no longer necessary to route individual
audio signals to the multi-image processor/router.
Audio Bridge Terminals offer two coaxial outputs which provide redundancy
and allow audio inputs to be shared among multiple frames. Power for
the Audio Bridge Terminals originates from external supply or from the
Ethernet switch using Power over Ethernet (PoE).
Elegant Audio Bridge Terminals offer highly space efficient monitoring of up to 768 discrete audio channels per frame.
Dolby E Metatada can be extracted from an embedded audio signal to feed 5.1 audio level meters. Audio meter assignment is slaved from the Dolby E
Program Configuration, and this allows precise monitoring of Dolby E audio without additional hardware.

Kaleido-X: using integral router for monitoring
The Kaleido-X system features built-in routing which eliminates the need
for separate routing in control rooms, and provides a significant cost
saving.
The router outputs can be controlled by the On-screen Mouse menus, a
NVISION remote panel, and by the iRouter application. Additionally, the
outputs can be selected by a production switcher’s auxilliary bus controls.
These router outputs can be used to feed high quality monitors, test
equipment such as waveform scopes, as well as ISO recorders. The outputs
can even feed other multi-viewers.
The built-in router improves integration, and reduces cabling and equipment costs. The routing capability eliminates the need for
a separate router for the following applications:
1
Feeding baseband high quality
monitors anywhere in the facility
2
Feeding test equipment for
quality control monitoring
3
Feeding a secondary multiviewer for output expansion

Feeding an ISO recorder in
production studios
Kaleido-X offers rich integration with the NVISION router family, and third
party routers, to allow expansion up to 1152 video inputs and 96 multiviewer outputs. Miranda’s Cluster Concept enables multiple multi-viewers
to behave like a single system from an operator’s perspective, with full
layout flexibility.
Since the 7RU Kaleido-X frame can accept up to 96 video inputs (3Gbps/
HD/SD /Analog), the number of video windows per monitor can be much
higher than with the smaller Kaleio-Modular and Kaleido-X16 multi-
viewers. This higher image density per screen can be beneficial for high
channel count continuity monitoring applications, such as playout centers.
In the example below, two NVISION 8576 routers are integrated with
12 Kaleido-X (96 x 8) multi-viewers. Each Kaleido-X frame provides
eight multi-viewer outputs, creating a total of 96 independent multiviewer outputs (with up to 96 windows per display). The entire system is
fully integrated to offer seamless control of the source assignments via
On-screen Mouse operation or by a router control panel.
