Amsterdam, The Netherlands (August 8, 2014)—Solid State Logic will release new features for MADI-Bridge, the company’s MADI-to-Dante IP Audio Network interface during IBC 2014 next month.
Part of SSL’s new Network I/O Range, MADI-Bridge is a broadcast-ready interface between MADI and Dante. The new features for the MADI-Bridge include bi-directional Sample Rate Conversion and a new ‘Split Mode.’
MADI-Bridge provides 64 channels per Bridge at 48 kHz, or 32 channels at 96 kHz, redundant MADI, IP Network ports and PSU. In addition to built-in clock redundancy, 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.
