Merging Technologies Anubis AoIP interface /controller

Posted on: Friday 22nd of March 2019

Anubis can be thought of as an enhancement to Merging’s extremely popular Networked Audio Interface range. This compact audio interface is a standalone 32-bit A/D and D/A capable of handling microphone or line level inputs and four analogue line outputs, plus two high quality headphone outputs. The large rotary encoder allows for precise monitoring volume control but also makes parameter adjustment simple, while the multi-touch display and dedicated buttons provide intuitive selection of whatever needs to be controlled.  Built in talkback, cue circuits and speaker management functions make this well-suited to operation as a controller.

The real power of Anubis becomes evident as soon as it becomes part of a larger network. Designed to fit into an AES67 or ST2110 environment, it is remarkably scalable when coupled with Merging’s Hapi or Horus units, or indeed any other AES67 devices. At this point, the additional I/O allows Anubis to become the centre of an up to 256 x 256 matrix with the control of incoming and outgoing streams. Instantly, such tasks as immersive audio monitor control become simplicity itself. In addition to audio I/O, Anubis also has GPIO or MIDI connectivity, a range of drivers covering MacOS, Windows and Linux, Ambisonic decoding and cough cut on every input. Although the full list of features cannot be itemised here, it should be noted that Anubis offers the choice of sample rate and audio quality you expect from a Merging product, with line input dynamic range of typically 139dB (A-weighted) as one example.

Practical uses of ANUBIS+MONITOR include monitor control in studios, remote trucks and edit rooms, monitoring incoming AES67 audio streams, recording voice-overs or as a highly portable location recording companion. Anubis can be powered from its own power supply, battery and/or PoE (Power over Ethernet) if redundancy is required and can be placed on a desktop or mounted on a standard microphone stand.

Two models are available; Pro which handles sample rates up to 192kHz, Premium which provides for high Resolution audio up to 384kHz and DXD and all flavours of DSD up to 256. Anubis is very competitively priced with suggested retail prices before taxes and import costs of $1495 and $1995 respectively.
