The MADI-Bridge is a broadcast specification bridge between the MADI audio format and Dante. It is a bi-directional interface that can deliver 64 channels @ 48kHz (32 channels at 96kHz, 16 channels @ 192kHz). MADI-Bridge ‘Split Mode’ enables 2 x 32 channels @ 96kHz streams to be merged to form a single 64 channel @ 48kHz stream.
MADI-Bridge also features bidirectional sample rate conversion between any asynchronous sample rates, from 44.1kHz to 192kHz. MADI-Bridge features redundant PSU, MADI and IP Network ports and in addition to the inbuilt clock redundancy options in Dante Controller, the MADI-Bridge also includes a pair of redundant sync inputs for use as a self-redundant Dante Grand master clock. 32bit MADI control tunnelling allows a pair of MADI-Bridges to be used to pass audio and user bits (including control data) of a whole MADI stream across a network.
