Frankfurt, Germany (April 5, 2017)—Allen & Heath has expanded the line of digital interface options for its dLive mixing system with superMADI and a range of AES3 I/O cards. The new cards are being shown at Pro Light & Sound (PL+S) on the Allen & Heath stand, F40, in Hall 3.1.
Designed for dLive integration into a wider range of broadcast, live interface and recording scenarios, the superMADI interface card has numerous connectivity possibilities, including 8 BNC connectors and 4 SFP slots for fiber optic transceivers. Both coaxial and optical formats offer up to 128 I/O at 96 kHz each, and redundancy and sample rate are switchable per link pair, with a choice of Smux or High Speed 96kHz mode.
The superMADI card can also be used by engineers and rental companies to link to any MADI-enabled third party console for high-channel count digital splits, for example, between FOH and monitor positions.
A&H’s four new AES3 I/O cards are offered in a choice of I/O formats—2 in, 8 out; 4 in, 6 out; 6 in, 4 out; and 10 out. The cards’ output sample rate is switchable between 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz and 44.1 kHz, while the inputs provide sample rate conversion from 32 kHz to 192 kHz. The new superMADI and AES3 cards can be fitted in the audio networking slots of any dLive S Class or dLive C Class Surface or MixRack.
