Merging at IBC 2011

Horus becomes an IP node and allows comprehensive routing and control of the astonishing I/O capability of the converter

Horus will be the guest of honour on Stand #6.C29 at IBC.  As a stand-alone converter, Horus offers outstanding performance and capability in a small form factor for a reasonable price.  Combined with Merging’s MassCore and connected to a RAVENNA IP-based network, the performance and flexibility takes on another dimension.

Horus becomes an IP node and allows comprehensive routing and control of the astonishing I/O capability of the converter.  Horus contains high quality microphone pre-amplifiers, AES/EBU and/or MADI conversion in both directions with full remote control of all the parameters.  This highly scalable solution has applications right across the industry from the simplest location recording and mastering to major broadcast facilities, OB vans, live sound and large installation projects.  The sheer quality and capability of Horus is a “must see and hear” for any broadcaster or recording engineer.


Tapeless video content offers huge workflow benefits to today’s broadcast facility but compliance issues can be a nightmare.  MXFix is your one-stop shop for audio to picture compliance.  A single networked workstation that combines EBU R128 and ATSC compliant loudness measurement and correction courtesy of Jünger Audio’s popular and very effective Level Magic software.  Merging’s proven MXF conformity wrapping is tempting enough, but combined with Dolby E encode/decode plug-ins, MXFix is the most powerful all-in-one media compliance batch processing wrap tool available.
