ANUBIS SPS Overview

MERGING+ANUBIS Seamless Protection Switching, has been developed specifically to address the demands of broadcast facilities depending on an IP infrastructure. Incorporating client requests to go beyond the ST2110 capability of Anubis, SPS includes no compromise ST2022-7 class C and NMOS compliance. It provides the most efficient and cost-effective solution to AoIP stream monitoring and management.

 

 

ANUBIS SPS – FEATURES

ST2022-7 Seamless Protection Switching

Adding to the fantastic and constantly evolving feature set of Anubis, the Anubis SPS version features two network ports for ST2022-7 compliance.

NMOS

While all MERGING Devices can be discovered and inter connected using MERGING ANEMAN Network Manager, ANUBIS SPS (as well as all other Merging interfaces) is also capable to register itself into an NMOS server as well as comply to connection requests from a compliant NMOS Network Manager such as VideoIPath from Nevion.

ANUBIS+SPS is compliant with:

  • NMOS IS-04 (Discovery & Registration)
  • NMOS IS-05 (Device Connection Management)
SMPTE ST2110

MERGING holds strongly to its commitment to broadcasters and has been implementing all the new IP protocols into its products. As a regular participant in IP Showcase events, Merging has implemented ST2110 and AES67. Anubis SPS meets the demanding requirements of JT-NM and is self-certified. We want your trust to be based on objective quality and reliability and submitting all our products to independent testing bodies is vital to ensure interoperability.

RAVENNA / AES67 Built-in

Using RAVENNA (AES67 compatible), Anubis is able to provide flexible connectivity of every single input and output across standard networks, using off-the-shelf network equipment. The future is most definitely networked audio, and Anubis provides it today. Read more about RAVENNA

DC or POE powered... Or BOTH!

Protect your production with not only audio network seamless switching but also power switching! Connect Anubis to both DC and POE supply. Should one fail, Anubis will switch to the other seamlessly.

Accessible and Controllable Remotely

With remote productions becoming the standard and content creators spread around the world, it is paramount to be able to quickly remote into any production device configuration and operation panels without wasting time on the phone running the user through the device.
Anubis configuration, presets and features are completely accessible remotely for very fast troubleshooting and deployment.

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.” (Albert Einstein)

Switch Mode!

There is another good news about Anubis SPS which is that it can be used in switched mode instead of “redundant ST2022-7 mode”, removing the necessity to have a network switch in scenarios where a DAW simply needs to be connected to a Horus and an Anubis, i.e. when doing a mobile recording.

ANUBIS SPS – Systems Integration

Anubis SPS together with the Merging Audio Device, opens remarkable possibilities. MAD is a multi-ASIO driver (also with WDM support) that has an infrastructure option that supports ST2022-7, ST2110, NMOS and Virtual Machine control. This recognizes that centralized data centers and server-based installations are now the new normal way to manage the global nature of the broadcast industry.
