Merging Anubis SPS AoIP Interface Update

Posted on: Thursday 20th of August 2020

Merging have announced the availability of Anubis SPS, featuring a second RJ45 connection on the rear panel in order to offer full ST2022-7 redundancy compliance, and adding NMOS features for easier integration into a complete IP infrastructure. In addition, Merging launched its Merging Audio Device multi-ASIO driver.

The Merging+Anubis SPS is now shipping with full ST2022-7 compliance. Anubis SPS adds NMOS IS-04 (Discovery & Registration) and IS-05 (Device Connection Management) to its list of features which is a major step forward in the easier integration of the interface into a complete IP infrastructure.

Merging MAD
Merging also launched Merging Audio Device (MAD), which coupled with Anubis SPS, opens extensive possibilities. MAD is a multi-ASIO driver (also with WDM support) with an infrastructure option supporting ST2022-7, ST2110, NMOS and Virtual Machine control. The VM feature specifically recognises that centralised data centers and server-based installations are now the ‘new normal’ method to manage the global nature of the broadcast industry in the most efficient way.

Local production ‘satellites’ can use Anubis SPS in their workflow and feed ST2022-7 back to the central resource, which is similarly equipped, to receive the streams on the same equipment which is fully integrated into the Virtual Machine (VM) environment. The Anubis SPS and the MAD Infrastructure will set you back around $2,000.

Recording

Merging’s recording customers can also benefit from the second RJ45 connection. The convenience of using RAVENNA networks for recording has been well proven for many years and the amount of equipment needed for remote sessions has been drastically reduced. However, there has been the need to include a managed network switch even if you only had one stagebox. Now it is possible to go with a laptop, Anubis SPS and a Horus or Hapi and leave the switch at home. The second port is connected to your stagebox instead being the redundant path.

 

 

 

Parametric EQ

A nice addition to all Anubis products is the introduction of a comprehensive parametric EQ with extensive filtering on all outputs. This is another user request and significantly enhances its role as the primary monitoring device on desktops everywhere. More Anubis features are planned over coming months, protecting the investment of the early adopter.
