Product Description


The MA64 is a 64-channel MADI to AES interface that enjoys both coaxial and optical MADI inputs. 32 two-channel audio outputs are available in both balanced AES3 and unbalanced AES3-id formats, with/without SRC. It is transparent to both Dolby E and Dolby Digital and comprehensive sync options and dual power supplies are standard.

Both fibre and coaxial MADI inputs are catered for (selectable from the front panel), and the MA64 can be specified to operate with either multi-mode or single-mode fibre. MA64 is fully compatible with 96 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 48 kHz and 44.1 kHz sample rates and both the legacy SMUX and High Speed MADI protocols.

An exclusive feature of the MA64 is that it makes 32 pairs (64 channels) of balanced AES/EBU and 32 pairs of unbalanced AES3-id outputs simultaneously available for interconnection to audio consoles, routers or any other AES equipped devices.

Comprehensive synchronization options (including wordclock, video, AES and MADI) are delivered to allow easy integration into any set up; whilst further professional features, including Dolby transparency and derived sync outputs ensure that the MA64 provides a space-efficient and reliable solution to MADI conversion in any situation.
