SMPTE Honors Miranda Technical Paper Author With 2012 Journal Award

Miranda Technologies Inc., a Belden (NYSE: BDC) Brand, global provider of integrated solutions for production, playout and delivery systems for television broadcasters and multi-system operators, has announced that a technical paper written by senior software engineer Sara Kudrle has been selected by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) as the recipient of the SMPTE 2012 Journal Award. The award is presented to the author of the most outstanding paper originally published in the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal during the preceding calendar year.

The paper, entitled “Fingerprinting for Solving A/V Synchronization Issues within Broadcast Environments” was written and presented by Kudrle with contributions from her Miranda colleagues Michel Proulx, chief technical officer; Pascal Carrières, hardware designer; and Marco Lopez, senior vice president, product development.

Modern television production and distribution systems suffer audio and video synchronization problems, which can occur at multiple points within complex broadcast distribution and delivery systems. The article explored the emergence and current development of “media fingerprinting,” a compelling way to resolve audio and video synchronization problems by identifying and tracking audio and video files without altering the original content.

According to Kudrle, “Media fingerprinting can provide far-reaching benefits for content creators, providers and distributors. In the paper, we discussed those benefits, as well as how professional standardization could facilitate the application of fingerprinting techniques to other media management challenges.”

Strath Goodship, president and CEO of Miranda, said, “Synchronization issues have been an ongoing annoyance for broadcasters and viewers alike. I am proud that we have the intellectual depth and commercial acumen to address those issues; and to be honored by a body of professional peers for our contribution to the discourse is deeply gratifying. I sincerely congratulate Sara and the individual efforts of all who contributed, but the highest praise is the public acknowledgment of their work by SMPTE.”
