MONTBONNOT, FRANCE� IP-based solution provider Digigram will feature its LX-MADI PCI Express sound card at IBC2014.
Digigram designed this latest in the company's range of sound cards for broadcast applications to provide low-latency performance and reliable multichannel synchronous audio PC connectivity in high-density audio production and automation applications.
�With the new LX-MADI PCIe card, users can establish a high permanence-of-service bridge between the PC-based content management world of digital audio workstations and automation systems and the legacy synchronous audio world based on AES10 standard Multichannel Audio Digital Interface,� said Pascal Malgouyard, head of product marketing at Digigram. �This approach simplifies the systems required to support key broadcast processes while ensuring the continued quality and reliability of audio signals.�
Equipped with an optical MADI interface, the LX-MADI PCIe sound card supports a 64/64 I/O channel count with low roundtrip latency down to 3 milliseconds. An embedded 64x64 matrix gives users routing and direct monitoring capabilities, along with record and play functions. Because the LX-MADI PCIe sound card is a hardware solution, it offers high stability regardless of the computational load presented by other applications running on the host system.
The new LX-MADI PCIe will ship by the end of this year. In the interim, it will be demonstrated at IBC2014.
