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. The MADI-Bridge enables any standard MADI device to connect to Dante based IP Audio networks with full redundancy maintained.
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.
