Product Delivers Advanced Eight Port MADI Router/Splitter/Aggregator Functionality at an Affordable Price
Solid State Logic, the leading manufacturer of audio consoles for the broadcast industry, will showcase the MADI-X8, a versatile and cost-effective 8-port MADI audio router/splitter/aggregator system at AES 2010 (Booth 902).
"MADI-X8 is a product developed in response to requests from many of our clients for a system that enables audio to be distributed and shared throughout a multi room facility," says Niall Feldman, director of new products for Solid State Logic. "Delivering a low-cost, 512 cross point router with eight MADI I/O and clock distribution, which can be controlled from cross platform browser software from anywhere on a network, is a significant achievement. This kind of technology has never been available at this price before, so it lowers the barrier to what can be achieved with an intelligent audio network in challenging multi room facilities."
MADI-X8 is an affordable, powerful and versatile MADI routing system. In addition to offering simple point to point bulk routing, MADI-X8 offers Source Distribution (one source to several destinations), Device Splitting (any combination of individual channels to any destination) and Source Aggregation (a single 64 Ch. output consisting of any combination of channels from various inputs). MADI-X8 is therefore a unique low-cost solution to audio distribution and aggregation challenges in a wide range of applications, including large scale film/game scoring, multi-room studio complexes requiring real time asset sharing, broadcast production studios & OB vehicles and live sound.
The MADI-X8 is a 1U unit with six MADI fibre and two coax I/O. It provides a 512 x 512 point routing matrix controlled by cross-platform SSL Logictivity™ Browser software. The browser interface makes creation of even the most complex routing configurations very straightforward. The MADI-X8 hardware can store up to 128 presets and continues to function when the Logictivity™ Browser is disconnected. MADI-X8 can act as a Master Clock source or as a clock distribution system via its MADI and/or Word Clock connections. It has Intelligent Clock Sensing with Auto Failover, which can monitor both a Primary Master Clock and a Secondary Clock source, and can switch automatically should the Master Clock source fail. Up to four MADI-X8 units can be controlled by a single browser and multiple browsers can control a single MADI-X8 over a wired or wireless network.
MADI-X8 is now available from SSL Resellers and is priced at $3900 + TAX.
