The brand new MI6 16-channel MADI monitor joins the MONTONE.42 Ravenna-enabled AoIP bridge being showcased at IBC2015.
The compact, 1U MI6 device expands DirectOut’s product range of monitoring solutions. The unit provides three MADI inputs and outputs, an analogue stereo line out and an AES3 output. Sixteen channels can be summed with individual levels onto a main mix which is then output via the device’s integrated speakers and other outputs. All MADI outputs carry the signal of the active MADI input allowing several units to be daisy-chained. The result is a flexible MADI audio monitoring system that delivers a 64-channel MADI signal via a single fibre link. DirectOut said this represents cost, space and weight savings in terms of cabling.
MONTONE.42 is a fully AES67-compliant MADI (AES10) to AoIP bridge based on Ravenna. As the demand for Ethernet-based transmissions in professional audio environments increases, MONTONE.42 provides integration of network audio with existing infrastructures.
