MADI2.SRC.IO is a MADI module for the PRODIGY Series based on the form factor of the PRODIGY Audio Network modules.
The two MADI ports connect 128 audio channels of digital input and output signals via SFP transceivers. The transceivers are pluggable to the SFP cages and can be exchanged to match the required connection type. E.g. LC optical multi-mode or single-mode for optical transmission or mini BNC for coaxial transmission.
The amount of audio channels is reduced at higher sample rates - 64 channels @ 2 FS or 32 channels @ 4 FS.
The transmission via fibre cable typically allows for long distance connections depending on the fibre mode (up to 2000 m, multi-mode or 10000 m, single mode) and the sender / receiver device.
The fibre modes of transceiver and cabling are required to match.
The transmission via coaxial cable typically allows connections of up to 100 m depending on the quality of the cabling and the sender / receiver device.
Transceivers for optical transmission are available from DirectOut as accessory.
MADI2.SRC.IO adds the possibility to perform (HD SRC) on MADI. This function is not available for the other MADI ports of the PRODIGY, where only the low latency sample rate conversion (FastSRC™) for input and output is offered.
