San Francisco, CA (November 18, 2011)—Wohler Technologies has released a new software interface for its MADI-8 in-rack audio monitor to provide control and reconfiguration of channel presets from a PC.
With the new software, operators can name any or all of the 64 available channels and then assign them up to eight available presets. Configurations can be saved as files on the setup application, so operators can recall channel names and presets from previous events and assign them to other MADI-8 units.
The firmware upgrade and software application download gives users the option of creating presets via a PC and keyboard rather than on the MADI-8 unit itself. For installations with numerous MADI-8 units, using a device server adaptor for each of the serial ports can enable all of the units to be controlled via an Ethernet network. This capability allows users to switch MADI-8 units between sport- or event-specific presets over the network, taking less time to shift channel names and presets from one broadcast to the next.
The new software application and firmware upgrade are free to existing MADI-8 users.
