Over the years Merging has developed the necessary tools to furnish our customers with end to end solutions, from studio or live recording to home listening passing by mastering, post-production, broadcast and immersive experiences. Whether you need the complete workflow or just a portion of it we have you covered.
Hi-Res, Live & Studio Recording
Capturing that vital performance can be a stressful business
so the last thing to be worried about is whether your recorder is working.
Furthermore, live recording in particular requires that you have sufficient
tracks available, high sample rates, and most importantly, reliability. Pyramix
offers all this, so it is hardly surprising that so many of the remote trucks
use Pyramix as the primary recorder. Coupled with the RAVENNA/AES67 networked
audio range from Merging, you also have the advantages of ease of installation,
remote control of mic preamplifiers and unrivaled audio quality with any
sample rate. Anubis, Horus and Hapi make the ideal stage boxes for the studio or any
venue and can accept a variety of different analog and digital signals.
IMMERSIVE AUDIO PRODUCTION
Hi-Res, Surround, SACD & CD Mastering
Mastering is the final process before your production is released
so using the best is mandatory. Mastering studios need to be able to accept a
variety of formats and deliver multiple versions. Pyramix offers the complete
toolkit again. The unbeatable HEPTA sample rate converter, all the editing
features you will ever need, great choice of plug-ins to deal with that problem
track and the most transparent audio quality. If this is not enough, Album
Publishing allows you to render different versions simultaneously. If you have a multi-room facility, the ability to share resources on a RAVENNA network saves you money and increases productivity.
If you are equipped to master surround formats, Merging can
offer the ultimate solution here. Whatever the delivery format and whatever the
sample rate, these masters can be handled with ease. File formats for SACD or
digital download are all part of the package.
Live Event Production & On-Air Playout
Live events or live broadcasts are multimedia and require a
new set of tools to successfully deliver the right result. This is often in
surround or immersive audio and can be a mixture of prerecorded and live
action. Ovation is the answer in providing the complexity needed for the
production with the simplicity needed for the live broadcast. No other system
offers the flexibility of cue management, cue triggering, output configuration
and compatibility with other show control or broadcast devices. Onboard mixing
with automation, Pyramix in the background for cue editing and level control,
as-played logs, 3D panning; the list of features goes on. The ability to add live announcements to a
prerecorded show is a must for any venue.
Ovation has proven its value at some of the biggest events worldwide
and has become an essential feature of many OB truck.
Post-Production TV / Film
Tools for postproduction for film and television need to
deliver an efficient workflow and handle different formats and codecs. Merging
has the background and experience to understand this better than most competing
manufacturers. Pyramix is the DAW of choice for many major broadcasters who
insist on using it on their prestige productions. Increasingly, film work
requires more complex mixing with the increase in popularity of more immersive
soundtracks. Pyramix has the capability to work with all the popular systems.
VCube is the workhorse for video replay in the dubbing
theatres. Despite other solutions being available, users would rather stick
with a versatile device that has proven reliable over many years. Pyramix Post
Native and VCube Essentials can also be combined on a single laptop for smaller
facilities or tracklay suites. The variety of options means there is a system
that will suit the budget and the workflow.
Museums, Venues, Theme Parks & VR Audio
Simple audio systems are no longer sufficient to attract
visitors. The modern experience requires something much more involving and
needs to stimulate all the senses. In some cases, this can be in a virtual
world but even a museum can be significantly enhanced by an immersive audio
experience. Merging Technologies can offer a unique package that can record,
edit and mix the audio and then play it out 24/7 in any configuration imaginable.
The Pyramix/Ovation combination offers extraordinary advantages over other sound
design and media server tools. Networked audio can also be a significant
benefit to the larger installations, not only simplifying the installation, but
also making the management far simpler by using ANEMAN.
If it is VR you need, we have plug-ins for High Order
Ambisonics or Binaural. If it is a live spectacular, Merging can work with the newly
available 3D live sound processors as well as delivering audio directly to any
speaker configuration. Compatibility with show controllers and video servers
make Merging the integrators’ dream.
Technologies has supplied many of the most important audio restoration and
archival facilities worldwide. This should be no surprise as the company has
invested heavily in providing a tool kit with features that are ideally suited
for this purpose, many of them unique. Merging’s award-winning Pyramix audio
workstation is the industry standard for ultra-high-resolution recording and there
is a choice of the Horus and Hapi Networked Audio Interfaces. The ability to
connect all archival recorders to a RAVENNA/AES67 network is an extremely
valuable feature and makes the routing of inputs and outputs from multiple
locations extremely simple.
of digitizing an audio archive are obvious when one looks at the storage needed
and the difficulty of accessing the recordings. If the system does not capture the audio with
adequate resolution and in a reliable manner, there are risks that future
generations may not hear the best results or that the exercise will need
repeating with increasingly fragile source material. Merging not only offers
state of the art A/D and D/A conversion as well as high resolution recording
and audio editing, but also an integrated archiving Metadata Editor
for easy insertion of custom metadata into final archives.
