Immersive audio link up heralds a networked future11 February 2016
Merging Technologies is offering an opportunity to experience a solution that it claims signals the future of audio in fixed installations.
It combines Merging Technologies’ newly released Ovation 6 with Genelec’s pre-production RAVENNA/AES67 powered 4420 model, in an eighteen speaker array to delivers what the company says is an unparalleled high quality immersive experience.
Chris Hollebone, sales and marketing manager, Merging Technologies, said: “Immersive audio and AoIP are in the spotlight and interest is really picking up amongst systems integrators. For that reason we’ve created an installation that demonstrates how these two trends can combine in a powerful, captivating way. We’re delighted to partner with Genelec on this, whose reputation speaks for itself, and I’d urge any integrator interested in the future of audio to visit our stand at ISE.”
As part of the showcase, Merging Technologies is demonstrating the new Ovation 6, backed by the networked audio interfaces, Horus and Hapi, and Pyramix 10. The Ovation solution brings an integrated 3D rendering engine, for use with both replayed sounds and a very high number of live inputs. This combination has been used on some of the world’s most important events, says the company.
The 4420 is a model which brings Genelec’s DSP system to the company’s 4000 Series of loudspeakers for fixed installations. Technology and software combine in the model to improve sonic performance, increase user benefits and improve the integration of the loudspeakers into their acoustic environments, according to Hollebone, adding that the addition of AoIP capability further increases the application potential of the range.
