With the goal of providing a first-rate convention and exposition experience, the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee procured the services of Metro Sound & Video to unify audio communications and distribution across all exhibit and meeting space. With a tight timeline and an eye toward scalability, the Milwaukee-area systems design and integration firm established a flexible, low-latency Dante digital audio network from Audinate.
The Ministry of Sound London has streamlined its Harman tools and distribution network, including an upgrade to the Soundcraft Vi3000 and Realtime Rack plug-in engine, supplied by Sound Technology.
Standard Broadcast Specification MADI to IP Audio Network Interface
The SSL Network I/O: MADI-Bridge is a broadcast specification bridge between the industry standard MADI audio format and IP audio networks using Dante.
MADI-Bridge can carry up to 64 channels per Bridge (@ 48kHz). Redundant PSU, MADI ports and IP Network ports mean the Bridge is built for uninterrupted operation. In addition to the inbuilt clock redundancy options in Dante controller, the MADI-Bridge also includes a pair of redundant sync inputs for use with black and burst video, tri-level and word clock sync sources. A front panel headphone socket (with rotary level control) provides inbuilt headphone monitor routing, to replace traditional patch bay fault finding functionality with equivalents in the IP Audio domain. 32bit MADI control tunnelling allows a pair of MADI-Bridges to be used to pass audio and user bits of a whole MADI stream across a network.
