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. 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.

AV / Immersive Audio

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.

Archiving

Audio Archiving


Merging 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.

The benefits 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 i
ntegrated archiving Metadata Editor for easy insertion of custom metadata into final archives.
