BBC Keep Things Strictly Pyramix

Posted in: News- Nov 27, 2015 No Comments

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ was first aired in 2004 from BBC Television Centre and Merging’s Pyramix was used for those early productions and on the successive series. The current series is transmitted from the George Lucas studio used by BBC Studios and Post Production. The demands of complex entertainment shows suggested that merely updating the Mykerinos based Pyramix was not going to be sufficient. It made sense to replace it completely with a new Pyramix MassCore 256 Music Pack with new hardware, including a Horus Networked Audio Interface. With the need to post-produce some of the shows, a VCube Essentials pack was also part of the package.

The clear choice was the Merging Technologies Ovation.

MERGING LAUNCHES NEW 16 i/o CARD

Posted in: News- Aug 19, 2014 Comments Off on MERGING LAUNCHES NEW 16 i/o CARD

‘Merging will show a new AD and DA combination board that will instantly double the quantity of analogue I/O available on the units.’

The sensational launch of the latest in Merging’s Networked Audio range of interfaces has proven that the family of products was just what the market was looking for. Hapi has been shipping in increasing numbers over the last few weeks. In a step to significantly enhance the practicality of both Hapi and Horus, on stand # 8.E96, Merging will show a new AD and DA combination board that will instantly double the quantity of analogue I/O available on the units. A staggering 48 in/48 out on Horus makes it the ideal stagebox for many applications. For Hapi, this allows a number of exciting possibilities. 16 in/16 out or 8 in/8 out with MADI are likely to be big sellers. Despite the extra component density, the performance of the ADA8 AD and DA option card is virtually identical to the AD8 and DA8 components that are still in the range and can be “mix and matched” to form a huge range of I/O combinations.
