Merging Technologies Horus Audio Interface

The Merging Technologies Horus Audio Interface combines premium converters with world-class mic pre’s into an elegant 2u system from Swiss manufacturer Merging Technologies. With a pedigree including the Pyramix workstation, Ovation media server and V-Cube HD video system, Horus is designed to work seamlessly in demanding professional environments.

Horus features 48 configurable channels of high-quality A-D or D-A conversion utilising MADI (optical & coax) and AES/EBU digital I/O. Utilising 6 I/O expansion bays capable of either 8 channels of AD or DA conversion the user can select up to 48 channels of analogue I/O (max 32 simultaneous AD). The optional AD8/AD8P modules provide 8 channels of remotely controllable mic/line preamps of outstanding quality, up to a maximum of 32 AD channels per unit. The analogue output can be configured with up to 6 DA8/DA8P modules providing a maximum of 48 line outputs per unit. Complementing the extensive analogue and digital I/O Horus comes standard with Wordclock, RS422, MIDI and LTC for interfacing with 3rd party hardware and installation into existing workflows.

Connecting Horus to a network using the RAVENNA protocol enables the real-time transmission of 176 channels in and 178 channels out of high-quality audio with very low latency. Using standard gigabit Ethernet infrastructure Horus exists as a node on the IP layer allowing access from any point and instant access to inputs and outputs capable of a ‘one to many’ signal flow. Applications for Horus are broadcast production, TV and film post, CD/SACD mastering, studio or live music recording, live events, theatres, museums and fixed installations. It offers remote-controllable gain over Ethernet via a browser interface and integrated control and routing with the Pyramix DAW mixer interface. It also features a low power “Green” build, ideal for power-conscious installations drawing only 60w. Other features include auto-mute circuitry for power cycling click prevention, and a front panel touch screen interface for local control over routing, gains and sync.
