Ross Video and Merging Technologies announce network management collaboration

Ross Video and Merging Technologies have announced a new collaboration that will see Ross Video products, including the recently-launched Bach Liberty, integrated with Merging’s Audio Network Manager (Aneman) software.

The result is what is being described as a “full stack” solution that enables manufacturers that have already adopted the Dante Brooklyn II module to quickly and easily plug into new markets.

The agreement will initially see the Aneman software complementing Ross Video’s recently introduced Bach Liberty module in offering AES67/RAVENNA audio networking that is plug-in compatible with the Dante Brooklyn II module.

It is said to offer easy audio network management and monitoring and to enable manufacturers that have already adopted the Dante module to quickly address new markets requiring full AES67 and ST 2110 compliance using a combination of the Bach Liberty module and the Aneman software.

Both companies have agreed to create an open network control and monitoring framework based on the Aneman Engine and hosted on GitHub, to enable innovative workflows to be developed by an ecosystem of independent contributors.

Nestor Amaya, vice president of infrastructure at Ross Video, commented: “I believe that many markets have been thirsting for this integration of open technologies, and I expect that we can build on this project to ultimately create a platform that is to the live media networking world what Linux has been to the world of computing.”

Claude Cellier, chief executive of Merging Technologies, added: “We are delighted to see Ross Video join the Aneman Network Management ecosystem which will allow all main Open AES67 based solutions to interoperate on a unified software platform.”
