Merging lüftet das Geheimnis um seinen neuen Netzwerk Audio Konverter.

hier die Pressemitteilung von Merging:



Merging unveiled the new Hapi Networked Audio Converter at the Frankfurt Prolight+Sound event on March 12th. The proximity of the two events makes NAB the perfect occasion to demonstrate the relevance of this product to the broadcast community. Hapi joins the rapidly increasing number of hardware products that utilise RAVENNA Audio over IP networking technology. This AES67 compatible, Layer-3 IP protocol has already had a huge impact on users of the Horus converter, which is now firmly established as one of the most versatile and best sounding AD/DA units available. It was only a matter of time before the family expanded. Booth #C3239 will be the place to see both these products in action.

Hapi utilises the same analog I/O option cards as Horus but in a compact 1u chassis with two card slots. This reduction in size and cost make Hapi the perfect partner to Horus where fewer inputs or outputs are required and it provides a low cost entry point into the RAVENNA/AES67 world. Once again, digital connectivity is a major asset of Hapi. The standard chassis has the following features as standard: 

  • 8 AES/EBU I/O (on DSub 25)
  • 8 ADAT or 2 SPDIF I/O (on TOSLINK)
  • RAVENNA/AES67 I/O (on RJ45)
  • Word Clock Input and Output (on BNC)
  • SYNC – LTC/MTC/Video ref/(requires CON-D15-VTC Cable)
  • 2 Option slots for AD8D/AD8DP, DA8/DA8P and MADI option cards
  • AC and DC power connections
  • Web browser control interface
  • Detachable rack ears for placement in standard rack
