DirectOut Launches MADI Tester at AES

News Image
MADI specialists DirectOut Technologies chose the 139th AES convention in New York to launch its MADI tester and monitor MADI.MONI, a sister product to the popular ANNA-LISA, MADI analyser and signal generator.

Compact MADI.MONI is an essential piece of kit for OBs, Live and concert venues and has been designed with engineers' toolboxes in mind so it's readily available for checking and monitoring the integrity of the MADI connection, the individual audio signals and the format and settings of the MADI transmission.

Connections are via coaxial BNC and an SFP MADI port. The SFP can be multimode, single mode fibre or BNC and both MADI outputs are independently configurable. The output selection allows the MADI.MONI to be inserted into existing coaxial fibre connections or to act as a converter between SFP fibre and BNC. A USB port is included for battery charging and firmware updates.

The bonus offered by the MADI.MONI is the built-in headphone jack allowing any mono channel or stereo pair from the active MADI input to be monitored, crucial when you need to quickly locate a particular signal from the sixty four available.

Dedicated LEDs easily confirm sample rate, channel mode and frame format and a simple traffic light style display shows Amplitude and Jitter on the MADI input. The optical level can be measured if a DirectOut specified SFP is installed. And should the sun come out at the festival it's possible to adjust the brightness of the display.

MADI.MONI is available from UK distributor Aspen Media.
