Merging Technologies at ISE 2014

New Ovation Software and Hardware announcements consolidate a year of successful sales

Puidoux, December 2013: The first upgrade to the Horus Networked Audio Converter sees the addition of a direct analogue output connector to the AD8 series input cards. This allows other recording or sound reinforcement consoles to be sent a feed post mic-preamplifier. Ideal for making recordings at different sampling rates.

Sales momentum for the Ovation product range has been building tremendously throughout 2013, with a clear increase in take up in prestigious theatres, shopping centres, airports, theme parks and other installed and live AV experiences around the globe. Ovation’s clear advantages over other traditional audio playback, routing, mixing/matrixing and interactive show control solutions are shining through and gaining high praise from users in these diverse fields. The flexibility of being able to use a software-only Ovation system for smaller productions or adding the highly innovative Horus RAVENNA Networked Audio Converter and MassCore DSP for larger scale AV experiences has proved to be exactly what the market demands. Stand 7-C180 at ISE 2014 will see new hardware and software developments that build on this success.

Ovation 5 will see a number of operational improvements to keep it ahead of the pack in terms of flexibility, usability and speed that includes a move to 64bit native processing so as to be able to handle larger projects with much more complexity and content. New features in the software are designed to help during the design and rehearsal phase of productions allowing users the ability to make split second decisions and changes to show control and audio playback configurations without upsetting any of the other AV teams doing parallel work.

Horus has been the shining star in the Merging firmament in 2013, showing an incredible sales growth and gaining universal applause for its amazing sound performance, ease of use and unrivalled connectivity in a wide variety of AV and pro audio industries. The success of the concept and the advantages of RAVENNA networking have been overwhelmingly proven in every installation and the necessity of providing more solutions at varying price points will be a priority for Merging in 2014. The European premier of the first descendent of Horus will be at ISE 2014.
