SSL announces Madi-X8

Published:

Banking on the resurgent popularity of the Madi protocol, Solid State Logic announced the Madi-X8 at IBC 2010, deliberately pitching the new 1U router at the more cost-conscious end of the market.

SSL describes the Madi-X8 as ‘a versatile and cost-effective eight port Madi audio router/splitter/aggregator system’, with Niall Feldman, director of new products for Solid State Logic commenting that it ‘is a product which responds directly to requests from many of our SI partners and clients for an audio asset sharing system that is affordable for small and mid scale installations.’

Key to the appeal of the router, says the manufacturer, is ‘simple point to point bulk routing’, though other features include source distribution (one source to several destinations), device splitting (any combination of individual channels to any destination) and source aggregation (a single 64 channel output consisting of any combination of channels from various inputs). Physically, the unit boasts six Madi fibre and two coax I/O, and provides a 512 x 512 point routing matrix controlled by cross-platform SSL Logictivity Browser software, with which users can store up to 128 presets. Up to four of the routers can be controlled by a single browser, while multiple browsers can control a single MADI-X8 over a wired or wireless network. The Madi X-8 can also act as a master clock source or as a clock distribution system.

Expected applications for the router include broadcast production studios and OB vehicles, large scale film and game scoring, and multi-room studio complexes.
