When audio and video combine: MERGING TECHNOLOGIES announces Ovation integration at InfoComm 2012
Demonstration of advanced audio capabilities for large-scale projects using Dataton WATCHOUT
Puidoux, Switzerland, May 30th, 2012: At InfoComm 2012,Merging Technologies will be showing a TCP/IP based synchronization mechanism that allows for simple-setup playback and cursor positioning sync between Timelines and Ovation cues integrated with Dataton WATCHOUT™ multi-image presentation software.
Using a standard Ethernet connection, sample accurate integration between WATCHOUT video playback and the Ovation cue containing multitrack audio and control information is now possible over standard Layer3 networks. This synchronization is capable of having a WATCHOUT master providing a reference to multiple Ovations, allowing for remote Ovation sequencers to be placed at various points in a much larger installation if required.

This solution is ideal for users requiring more advanced audio capabilities. Features such as 300+ tracks of playback, management and treatment 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 will now make Ovation the perfect audio solution.
Johan Wadsten, Product Manager for the Ovation Media Server and Sequencer stated; "Combining the video power of the WATCHOUT system with the Ovation’s ability to manipulate audio and control information like no other, has made an unbeatable combination. We are beyond excited to see what the AV community can now create using this solution!"
