Merging Technologies’ Makeover For Ovation At IBC

  Ovation 3 Now Released For The Broadcast, Live Events And Installation Industries

Amsterdam 9th September 2011: Merging Technologies SA, Swiss Manufacturers of the Ovation Media Server and Sequencer, are proud to announce the release of an exciting new version of the industry acclaimed software, Ovation 3.0.

Ovation is quickly gaining ground in a wide array of applications due to its open architecture and the flexibility of its audio engine. Broadcast “live to air” playout, bar/club/hotel music systems, theatre show sequencing, exhibition and spectacle design and cruise ship entertainment are just some of the industry applications where Ovation is finding a perfect home.

At the heart of the Ovation3 system is one of the most flexible and intuitive cue sequencers available. Capable of huge multitrack audio playback (up to 384 tracks) of any file type or sample rate (realtime SRC) combined with control protocol firing for interaction with any system configuration (MIDI/RS-232/GPIO/RS-422/LTC/Script/…), Ovation is proving itself to be a new standard for configured live event playback.

Within the same application exists an incredibly powerful internal mix engine. Combining playback audio and feeds from live inputs, the mixer can then be manipulated by mouse or through remote protocols such as EuCon, Oasis and MIDI/HUI. Then, once balances have been created, it is possible for the user to save mixer snapshots and embed them in cues for recall with user definable glide times. Output is provided over optional MADI/AES/TDIF/Analogue and incorporates the Ravenna Ethernet audio protocol as standard which allows it to connect to Merging’s new I/O interface, Horus.

Ovation3 also provides an easy to use and easy to configure remote interface for the system with the WebServer option. Using any web-enabled device, it is possible to connect to the Ovation show over http and access all the firing controls through any standard web interface. And, as the WebServer option is connected using JavaScript, a white paper provided with each Ovation3 system allows the possibility for the creation of custom interfaces using basic web page design.
