New SRC From DirectOut At BVE

News Image
MADI specialist DirectOut presented MADI.9648, a new sample rate converter, on the Aspen Media stand F30 at BVE.

MADI.9648 is especially suited for environments requiring bidirectional low latency conversion of 128 audio channels between 96 kHz and 48 kHz.

It is a 1U device that has eight MADI ports; six BNC and two SC fibre. It is simplicity itself to operate having fixed signal routing and automatic signal detection of sample rate and 56/64ch channel mode so no fine-tuning is required. The MADI.9648 also provides format conversion SC<>BNC.

One 1FS 48kHz MADI stream with 64 audio channels is converted to two 32 channel 2FS 96kHz MADI streams and vice versa. Two 2FS streams are converted and combined into a single 1FS stream that is output via both BNC and SC.

Visitors were also pleased to see the launch of the PC version of the analysing software for ANNA-LISA, the handheld MADI analyser and test signal generator. Using a simple traffic light system for verification, ANNA-LISA allows engineers to rapidly confirm the integrity of MADI signals of all types, and to identify any problems occurring as a result of MADI transmission; AES10 conformity, sample rate accuracy, MADI format, jitter, signal amplitude, etc.

The PC or Android analysing software delivers more in-depth analysis including level metering, AES3 channel status readout, channel based routing control and gain control plus extended control of the signal generator.
