The potential of moving audio and video infrastructure to an IP world is becoming a reality with standards and many products becoming available. Merging Technologies has been supporting and developing Audio over IP products since 2012. Horus is the product that introduced the power and simplicity that can be achieved once networking is incorporated into a product. Today, Horus remains a market leader by providing astounding audio quality with unrivalled connectivity. It can slot effortlessly into a legacy studio and instantly upgrade the quality and productivity.
What is Horus? Horus is one of the world’s most sonically transparent Mic Pre’s. Horus is also one of the most phenomenal AD/DA boxes on the market. Horus could very well be the ultimate answer to anyone wanting Analog/AES/MADI interconnectivity in the room they work in. It is a revolution in “bang for buck” technology and has become one of the defacto audio I/O devices for the media industries...
But in reality Horus is much, much more:
Using RAVENNA technology, Horus brings the possibility to interconnect your entire facility using nothing more than a standard RJ45 connector. Once in RAVENNA mode, the Horus box simply becomes a node on a network, one that can be instantly called to be an input, an output, or a combination of both. Whether you are in broadcast, TV and film, mastering, studio or live music recording, live events, theatres, museums, cruise ships, or any industry where you need audio to get from A to B (or A to B and C, or C to A and part of D, E, and F!).
Using standard network connections, switches and connectors, Horus and other RAVENNA-enabled devices can be placed on a network and interconnected. Horus is fully AES67 compatible so you are able to connect to many devices regardless of the originating network protocol.
Modular By Design
The modular design of Horus allows you to buy what you need or can afford. You can always add to it later or even change your mind. In addition to the choice of analog I/O modules you can always use one slot for the PT64 option for Pro Tools HD™ users.
The MADI capacity can be extended to 128 I/O by adding an additional expansion card without taking one of your 6 I/O slots.
