ANEMAN is a ground-breaking technology that makes networked audio devices connect seamlessly with each other.
ANEMAN is a flexible technology that can be used for audio patching, control and much more. It joins up the patching of media streams, remote control of devices, and control and configuration of the network itself.
Developed by Merging and Digigram, it has already been adopted into many RAVENNA-enabled products.
When you connect ANEMAN enabled products onto a network, you can patch audio streams between them with just one click.
More features are being added to ANEMAN all the time. On the road map are features such as pre-amp gain control, AES70 support, infrastructure monitoring and improved security.
ANEMAN is a technology that lets compatible devices communicate with each other on a network.
A compatible plugin makes the device visible to ANEMAN, so others can connect and control.
With AMEMAN you connect the Inputs and Outputs of the devices, you do NOT have to worry about the streams. ANEMAN will optimise the network for you, RAVENNA style.
ANEMAN software is a free program to let you manage devices, but this capability can also be incorporated into products or manufacturers own software, to save you opening up a specific patching program.
In addition to the free version, an enterprise version is available for users, with additional features and support.
You can freely adopt ANEMAN into your products. You simply write a plugin for your product. One manufacturer wrote the necessary code in just one week.
However, it is more likely that you will want to participate in the program to continue ANEMAN development and therefore have your plug in automatically distributed to users via the ANEMAN plug in manager, include icons for your device in the software, and be part of the overall marketing activity for the technology.
Flowchart of manufacturing process (placeholder)
As well as being a fully featured technology with many enabled products and two versions of configuration software, ANEMAN is an evolving technology.
If you write a plug in for ANEMAN then your product can be seen on, and controlled via, the network. It becomes part of the ecosystem. This will increase the capabilities of ANEMAN as it evolves and as adoption increases.
