New versions of Pyramix, Ovation and Vcube are being launched at IBC, following the introduction of new 64-bit versions of the software.
Major enhancements for the Pyramix virtual studio relate to virtual transport improvements, archiving metadata workflows and digital album publishing for DSD/DXD multichannel releases.
The Ovation media sequencer was recently in action powering the Commonwealth Games opening and closing ceremonies. The upgrade brings the option to enable or disable the playback logging function, either manually or on a time cues. This ensures that no false logs are made during set-up or rehearsal but nothing gets missed as soon as the show goes live.
HD player/recorder VCube gets a complete update on rendering options and now supports a range of video cards from Blackmagic Design for capture and playback. Merging said the cost efficient and high quality PCI Express cards and USB video interfaces significantly enhance the value offering throughout the VCube range.
Also on show is the Iris Networked Post System which Merging said was not only aimed at broadcast and film post, but has also been used recently for recording and live sound reinforcement duties.
Additionally, a new selection of VS3 and VST plug-ins from companies like Flux, Vincent Burel, Algorithmix and AudioEase are being showcased.
