BBC Northern Ireland (BBC NI), the province’s local public service broadcaster, has invested in a 4HM MADI-MON unit.

The MADI-MON provides broadcast, live and production audio engineers with a simple way of auditioning embedded MADI channels without the need to connect to external routers or audio consoles. BBC NI’s was supplied by Aspen Media.

“‘Dead air’ is the biggest enemy of all broadcasters, so fast and reliable diagnostics are a vital part of the system,” says 4HM’s Barry Revels. “We are really pleased that an organisation as prestigious as the BBC has put its faith in the MADI-MON, which will help ensure that its audience always enjoys continuous, high-quality output.”

MADI-MON is the only MADI monitor to simultaneously make all audio signals visible and accessible as a breakout, with the status bits of the MADI stream also available for diagnostic use.

BBCNI chose the MADI-MON because of its ease of use and functionality. One of the unit’s key advantages for broadcasters is that if something unexpected occurs within a MADI system, the unit makes diagnostics – and therefore rectification – as fast as possible.

“’Dead air’ is the biggest enemy of all broadcasters, so fast and reliable diagnostics are a vital part of the system,” says 4HM’s Barry Revels. “We are really pleased that an organisation as prestigious as the BBC has put its faith in the MADI-MON, which will help ensure that its audience always enjoys continuous, high quality output.”
