Major Productivity Milestone

Merging Technologies has embraced audio over IP since 2011, which put a huge milestone within the industry. Again in 2017, another milestone is achieved by linking Ovation 7 to ANEMAN. Our new audio Network Manager tool. Having all your RAVENNA/AES67 devices on your fingertip within one interface within your installation.

With Ovation 7, a further development of our toolkit for 3D immersive audio is available in conjunction with Pyramix our DAW. A new FX Rendering feature in multitrack and multieffects available in Pyramix makes it easier than ever to directly edit to the finest detail your cue without rendering it back to Ovation.

Many more TV stations for their live events, huge shopping malls for their playout, world class theme parks and big immersive events have trusted Ovation since its last version due to tremendous flexibility and reliability

AUDIO NETWORKING MILESTONES

  • ANEMAN: Audio NEtwork MANager

ANEMAN, the first open cross platform & cross manufacturer audio network manager, is a powerful tool to discover, connect and monitor your audio network. It informs you when you can and cannot make connections, and even gives you the PTP status of each device. With the Sample Rate zone, you can now have multiple sets of devices on the network that will follow their own master’s Sample Rate. Merging devices are not the only products compatible with ANEMAN.
