Audinate has announced that 275 manufacturers have now adopted Dante, the industry-leading audio over IP networking solution, and that more than 675 Dante-enabled products are now available worldwide. This represents a dramatic 145% increase in the number of commercially available products since ISE last year.
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.
