Following a record quarter of sales of the original Hapi, Merging Technologies has introduced the Hapi MKII.
Merging Technologies reports that since the beginning of October 2020, it has sold more than 120 Hapi units, adding that the diversity of users and countries has been “remarkable”.
Four of these units were sold to the French theme park, Puy du Fou along with two Horus units which, when added to their already significant installation, makes them one of the largest individual purchasers worldwide.
Units were also supplied to film and post studios in Denmark and Germany, classical recording facilities in UK, Poland, Germany, Switzerland and USA, broadcasters in France, Switzerland, Canada, USA and Indonesia, and to Dolby Atmos studios in Netherlands, Germany and Denmark.
Units were also shipped to Australia, Brazil, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Israel, Hungary, Slovenia, Norway, Sweden, China and the Czech Republic covering all the above applications, plus mastering houses and studios using Pro Tools and Nuendo.
This flourish of activity provides the ideal scenario for the launch of Hapi MKI, which will start shipping in March. Merging states that advance orders are already more than 50.
