DirectOut has announced that it will be showcasing a new MADI (AES10) to audio-over-IP bridge at Prolight+Sound in Frankfurt.
Montone.42 has been released in response to the growing demand for Ethernet based transmissions in professional audio environments.
The new unit allows for the integration of network audio with existing infrastructures. It is based on the Ravenna network standard and MADI (AES10) and serves as a versatile link for broadcast, live-sound and studio applications.
Equipped with four MADI and two gigabit network ports, up to eight streams can be assembled with an individual number of audio channels from the MADI inputs, using the internal routing matrix.
The device can be synchronized to MADI input, word clock, video input, network or internal clock. It may also serve as a network grandmaster, when set to internal clock.
An AES67 compatible profile is available in Montone.42 to ensure compatibility with other audio-over-IP devices.
