Installation Manual
1 Kaleido-Alto & Kaleido-Quad
1.1 Introduction
The Kaleido-Alto and Kaleido-Quad multi-image processors can display multiple video inputs (up to 10 for Alto,
up to 4 for Quad) on a single high resolution output. The Kaleido-Alto/Quad combines the display of video
windows, audio level metering, text identification labelling, tallies and in-screen status indicators in a convenient
single RU frame. Various models are offered to support SDI video, composite video or the auto-detection of
composite and SDI. Four stereo audio level meters can be displayed inside or outside each video window.
Audio sources can be extracted from the embedded audio inside the SDI signals, or input via optional audio
mezzanines providing 4 or 10 AES or Analog stereo input signals. A DVI input allows the insertion of an
external computer signal to fill the background of the video layout. The layout can be created using the KEdit
software and applied to the system afterward. Layouts and frequently-used functions can be operated via the
Kaleido-RCP or via a mouse/pointer interface. Even though the Kaleido-Alto/Quad is not equipped with the
entire Kaleido-K2 extended function set, it is an ideal solution in areas where fewer signals need to be
monitored with fine picture quality. Its compact 1 RU frame is a real asset in areas where space is restricted.
The Kaleido-Alto/Quad is available in several different models:
1.2 Kaleido-Alto Series: Supports up to 10 video inputs.
Kaleido-Alto HD
The Kaleido-Alto HD is configured with 10 auto-detect HD/SD-SDI/Composite video inputs. Each input is
capable of displaying HD/SD-SDI and Composite video input in PAL, SECAM , NTSC or Black & White formats
automatically
Kaleido-Alto AD:
The Kaleido-Alto AD is configured with 10 auto-detect SD-SDI/Composite video inputs. Each input is capable of
displaying SD-SDI with 525 or 625 lines and Composite video input in PAL, SECAM, NTSC or Black & White
formats automatically
Kaleido-Alto A:
The Kaleido-Alto A offers 10 Composite inputs. Each input auto-detects PAL, SECAM, NTSC or Black & White
formats.

2.6 Multiple Kaleido-Alto/Quad Installations
2.6.1 Ethernet Connection for use with KEdit
KEdit software is used to create layouts for the Kaleido Alto/Quad. Each Kaleido Alto/Quad can have layouts
created specifically for its application requirements. These layouts are created on a PC running KEdit software
(described in its own manual) and uploaded to the Kaleido-Alto/Quad via Ethernet, each Kaleido-Alto/Quad
having its own IP address.
Figure 2.5.1 Kaleido-Alto/Quads connected to an ethernet network
2.6.2 Controlling Multiple Kaleido-Alto/Quads using RS-422 with a Kaleido-RCP
Using the RS-422 A communication port allows up to 99 daisy-chained Kaleido-Alto/Quad frames to be
controlled using only one Kaleido-RCP, through the use of a multidrop cable. Figure 2.5.2 illustrates cabling
between the Kaleido-Alto/Quads and the Kaleido-RCP. Other products in the Kaleido family may be included,
as shown in the figure.
For this to work, the Kaleido-RCP must be able to send commands to a specific Kaleido-Alto/Quad in the daisychain. This is accomplished by assigning an identification code to each of the Kaleido-Alto/Quad frames.
By default, Kaleido-RCP will send instructions using RS-422 protocol to ID 1. This means that a system
comprised of only one Kaleido-Alto frame will work out of the box as each frame’s default ID is also set to 1.
However, for applications where more than one Kaleido-Alto/Quad frame is used, you will need to assign a
unique ID number to each of them. Consult the Kaleido-Alto/Quad software User’s Manual for details.
As indicated in the figure below, a 120 Ω termination resistor must be installed on the cable connector on the
last Kaleido Alto/Quad frame in the daisy-chain. In a point-to-point connection, it must be installed on the
receiver; for a more-than-one Kaleido-Alto/Quad frame connection (called a “multidrop connection”), it must be
installed on receiver and driver. For more details, consult Miranda Application Note #229-99T00-101.

Operation
The Kaleido-Alto has no local controls beyond the power switch. Operational concerns are outlined here, but for
detailed operating instructions, see the Kaleido Alto Software Operation Manual. Periodically, new software
versions may be uploaded using “live update” through the ethernet connection.
3.1 Powering Up
The power switch is located on the rear panel of the Kaleido-Alto/Quad, just above the power cord. Plug the
cord into an appropriate AC power supply, and set the switch to ON ( I ). If you have just switched the unit
OFF ( 0 ), always wait a few seconds before turning it ON again to ensure proper startup procedure.
3.2 Front Panel Status LED
There is a system status LED mounted on the front panel of the Kaleido-Alto/Quad. This LED gives operational
status when powering up the unit, and signals any malfunction of the unit. Note that this LED does not report on
the status of the inputs connected at the back.
Figure 3.1 Front panel Status LED (Same location on Alto and Quad)
At startup, the LED will briefly light up red, then flashing yellow. After 10 to 15 seconds the LED lights up green
to indicate normal system operation. Other states may be:
Yellow (continuous):
system boot-up problem or live update not completed correctly.
Red (continuous):
system failure.
3.3 Startup and Preparation to Use Software.
The Kaleido Alto is shipped with the current version of the software installed, and configured to auto-start when
the system is powered on. Upon initial startup, the system will present the default monitoring window at its
output. Upon subsequent start-ups, the system will present the last monitoring window that was present before
shut-down. See the software manual for detailed instructions on how to operate the software.
3.4 Installation of Software
In case of recovery from system failure, or when software is being updated, it is necessary to install the
Kaleido-Alto and K-Edit software. This software is delivered on a CD-ROM which is included in the product
package, or downloaded from Miranda’s web site. As Kaleido-Alto does not incorporate a CD-ROM drive, it is
necessary to install the software from a remote computer through a network connection. Installation of the
software is detailed in a “read me” file included with the update.

Annex – Kaleido display resolution
The Kaleido-Alto/Quad displays all the elements of its layout in a frame whose maximum vertical resolution is
1024 pixels. However, the RGBHV output from all versions of the Kaleido-Alto and the Kaleido-Quad can drive
displays with greater vertical resolution, provided they are equipped with an appropriate hardware version (see
the chart below). In particular, displays operating at 1920x1080 and 1600x1200 can be used with these
Kaleidos.
1600 x 1200 resolution:
To drive a 1600x1200 display from Kaleido, the Kaleido layout must be created at 1600x1024 pixels. In KEdit,
you must generate a 25 x 16 display aspect ratio. When this layout is shown on the display, 88 lines on top and
bottom will be displayed in black.
1920 x 1080 resolution:
To drive a 1920x1080 display from Kaleido, the Kaleido layout must be created at 1920x1024 pixels. In KEdit,
you must generate a 15 x 8 display aspect ratio. When this layout is shown on the display, 28 lines on top and
bottom will be displayed in black (see figure A1).
Figure A1: Kaleido-Alto output on a 1920x1080 display showing black bars top and bottom
A feature of Kaleido-Alto/Quad is the ability to replace the internally-generated background in the layout with
images from an external source, via the DVI input. In this case, it is appropriate to select a DVI background
source to match the display in use, i.e. 1600x1200 or 1920x1080. The background will occupy the entire
display screen, and the Kaleido-generated elements will be keyed into the vertically-centered 1024-line portion
of the screen, with no visible indication of any boundaries within the image (see figure A2).
Three sets of alternative “color keys” can be used by the background application. For example, in the case of
integration with iControl WEB, the background uses (255 blue, 255 green and 0 red).
