Las Vegas, NV (April 15, 2015)—Solid State Logic is demonstrating a new feature set for its Dante-enabled Network I/O: MADI-Bridge along with two new Network I/O: Stagebox models at the 2015 NAB Show.
The SSL Network I/O: MADI-Bridge provides an interface between a Dante IP audio network and MADI with 64 channels per Bridge at 48 kHz, 32 channels at 96 kHz or 16 channels at 192 kHz. With redundant MADI, IP network ports and PSU, the Bridge is built for uninterrupted fully-redundant operation.
In addition to the built-in clock redundancy in Dante controller, the MADI-Bridge includes 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 replace traditional patch bay routing and fault-finding functionality with equivalents in the IP Audio domain. GPIO connections allow for transfer of tally info and switching functions across the network with the audio.
SSL is also announcing two new models of Stagebox. The Network I/O: SB 8.8 offers eight mic/line inputs and eight line level outputs. The Network I/O: SB i16 offers 16 mic/line inputs. Both models feature a pair of redundant Dante network connections, a pair of network extension connections, GPIO connectivity and redundant PSUs.
Network I/O Stageboxes bring SSL's SuperAnalogue preamp design to the interoperable AoIP market. Designed for broadcast or remote use, SSL’s Stageboxes allow deployment of mic pres and speaker feeds, where needed. The Network I/O's plug-and-play feature allows devices to be moved, even between studios, while retaining routing and settings, if required. Clear signal present, phantom power and local attention LEDs provide front panel feedback.
