SSL MADI-X8 Router
Solid State Logic presents the MADI-X8, an 8-port MADI audio router/splitter/aggregator system and the new SDI-MADI, a 4 x 16 channel audio de-embedder with four auto sensing 3G SDI inputs and 64 channel MADI fibre and AES Digital audio outputs at IBC 2010.
MADI-X8 is a MADI routing system. In addition to offering simple point to point bulk routing, MADI-X8 offers Source Distribution (one source to many destinations), Device Splitting (any combination of individual channels to any destination) and Source Aggregation (a single 64 Ch. output consists of any combination of channels from various inputs). MADI-X8 is therefore a solution to audio distribution and aggregation challenges in applications including, broadcast production studios and OB vehicles, large scale film/game scoring, multi-room studio complexes requiring real time asset sharing and live sound.
Pricing & Availability
MADI-X8 will be available from SSL Resellers from October 2010 priced £2250 + VAT (€2745 + VAT).
The SSL SDI-MADI is a solution to the problem of connecting audio equipment to the SDI-based infrastructure found in many broadcast facilities today. Occupying 1U of rack space, the SDI-MADI provides the interface between SDI video bitstreams and digital audio. SDI-MADI extracts up to 16 audio channels from each of the unit's four SDI inputs to provide a total of up to 64 audio channels in both MADI and AES3 formats. All SDI inputs auto-sense between 3G, HD and SD standards and are provided with loop-through connectivity for downstream equipment.
With a range of synchronizing options and switchable sample rate convertors, the SDI-MADI is designed to integrate into any broadcast environment where SDI-embedded audio channels require format conversion.
Pricing & Availability
SDI-MADI will be available from SSL Resellers from November 2010 priced £6600 plus local sales tax.
