DirectOut Technologies is now shipping SG.MADI, an audio format converter that links MADI signals with Waves SoundGrid Audio-over-Ethernet. SoundGrid is a Layer 2-based network protocol offered by Waves, for Audio-over-Ethernet networking and real-time processing solutions for live, broadcast and music production facilities, to deliver uncompressed, multi-channel, low-latency digital audio over Ethernet networks.
By using SG.MADI’s integrated network switch, integration of outboard equipment and redundant DAWs to a SoundGrid environment is simple. Working in large multi-stage venues, SG.MADI easily connects MADI to a SoundGrid network and to SoundGrid software or hardware, and works as a monitoring tool for all SoundGrid and MADI signals.
Housed in a robust 1U 19-inch casing, SG.MADI makes economical use of valued rack space. A headphone jack, including volume control, provides easy monitoring. There are two GPIs on the rear panel to integrate control signals via the network or MADI link, and the two GPOs can be individually configured for triggering system events or activating on-air or recording lights. It is also equipped with dual redundant power supplies, and both the MADI and network ports may be employed as dual redundant pairs with auto fail-over.
