OXFORD, ENGLAND—Solid State Logic, audio tool provider, will release new features for MADI-Bridge, the company''s MADI to Dante IP Audio Network interface at IBC 2014.
Part of SSL''s Network I/O range, MADI-Bridge is a fully broadcast-ready interface between MADI and Dante. The new features include bidirectional sample rate conversion and a new split mode.
MADI-Bridge provides an interface between a Dante IP Audio Network and MADI. With 64 channels per Bridge @ 48kHz, or 32 channels at 96kHz, redundant MADI, IP Network ports and PSU, the Bridge is built for uninterrupted fully-redundant operation.
The MADI-Bridge includes built-in clock redundancy and a pair of sync inputs for use as a self-redundant Dante Grand Master clock. The unit can synchronize to video sync, tri-level or black and burst, Word clock, MADI or PTP Network sync.
MADI-Bridge also features a front panel headphone socket (with rotary level control) and built-in headphone monitor routing, to truly replace traditional patch bay routing and fault-finding functionality with equivalents in the IP Audio domain. GPIO connections enable transfer of tally info and switching functions across the network with the audio.
