Audio Playout Software designed for Broadcast, Theatre, Installations and Live Events.

 

For applications ranging from theatre playout, live events, fixed installations, theme parks, hotels, cruise ships, theatres, museums and exhibitions, corporate AV, television and radio production to name but a few, Ovation Media Sequencer and Controller is the ultimate choice when performance, speed and quality is a necessity. Integrated within Ovation is the award winning Pyramix Virtual Studio editing system allowing on the fly editing and compilation of your audio cues at any time right up to the start of the show.

Ovation MassCore

When you need heaps of power, near-zero latencies for live input management, and one of the largest mix engines available anywhere in the world, then you need Merging Technologies’ MassCore™ Audio Engine to deliver it . Based on Intel computing technology, but without any of the latencies inherent to host-based systems, Ovation delivers cutting edge power and flexibility at a substantially lower cost than that of FPGA and other proprietarily based mix engine architectures. The MassCore Audio Engine provides an internal mixer, managing up to 384 I/O with 384 buses configurable into any combination of mono, stereo, and multichannel surround with EQ/dynamics and other plug-ins available. The mixer can be remotely controlled with the optional integrated Tango 2 or any Oasis, Eucon, or Mackie HUI mixing control surface.

Ovation Native

For applications where cost is more of an issue, Ovation also comes in an ASIO based version, for use with any approved 3rd party interface. Combine the power of Ovation’s show building capabilities with the cost effectiveness of ASIO technology. Sold as a dongle authorised system, this is the perfect laptop version as well. Configure and test shows on the way to the venue, or even run a show from your notebook!

WebServer Option

Through a standard web interface (Safari, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer etc) it is now possible to access your show from anywhere, over standard HTTP. Log into your show and see cue lists, cues, firing and show controls for any application where it is just not feasible to connect physically to the machine. Run a rehearsal with your iPhone, provide timing information to the Pit conductor and provide limited access to cue firing for the stage manager or other staff. Written using basic JavaScript and able to provide multiple access points to a single show, this also provides the ultimate tool for creating custom-made, fixed installations and exhibits where “black box” style configurations are needed.
