Show Sage Demonstrates Ovation With Watchout at LDI Show

  Merging distributor Independent Audio appoints Show Sage as Ovation dealer

Las Vegas, October 2012: The recent appointment of Show Sage LLC as a Merging Technologies’ Ovation reseller is being celebrated by showing the Media Server and Sequencer in Booth # 442 at the 2012 Live Design International Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The show runs from 19th-21st October. Show Sage is also a joint Gold Master Class sponsor with Dataton and will be presenting a conference session.

Merging Technologies is the creator of Ovation, the revolutionary media server and sequencer solution that includes advanced audio features such as the incorporation of 300+ tracks of playback; management of live audio inputs; a comprehensive internal mix engine with 256 busses; and, a full complement of EQ/Dynamics/processing, control protocol I/O and the immense power of the MassCore Audio Engine.

Jim Testa, President of Show Sage commented, "We are very excited to be establishing a relationship with Merging and Independent Audio. WATCHOUT and Ovation are great complements to each other and we are thrilled to show their integration at LDI this year. Ovation is a great solution for Dataton WATCHOUT customers who need a really comprehensive audio solution."

Triggering of Ovation cues, containing multi-track audio and control information, from WATCHOUT is now possible over standard TCP/IP Layer 3 networks. With this synchronization, a single WATCHOUT master is capable of providing a reference point to multiple Ovation servers, allowing for remote Ovation sequencers to be placed at various points in a much larger installation if required.

"We are delighted to partner with Show Sage at LDI and we see a significant expansion of our Merging business into the live and installed market. Products like Ovation and Horus really add value to the spectacular multi-display capabilities of WATCHOUT and LDI in Las Vegas is a great place to be demonstrating the result." remarked Fraser Jones, Independent Audio’s President.
