Solid State Logic will introduced its MADI Dante Bridge, the world’s first broadcast specification bridge between the industry standard MADI audio format and Dante IP Audio Network’s at IBC 2013. The MADI Dante Bridge enables SSL C100 HDS and C10 HD Digital Broadcast Consoles or any other standard MADI device to connect to Dante networks with full redundancy maintained. The release of SSL’s first Dante I/O product adds the substantial weight of the SSL brand to the adoption of Dante and AVB standards as the industry choice for IP Audio networks. “Dante is by far the most widely adopted IP Audio network solution,” said Niall Feldman, SSL director of new products. “An extensive collection of compatible devices from an array of manufacturers and thousands of installations worldwide, prove its versatility and reliability. We feel that IP Audio networking has a great deal to offer broadcasters and are confident that the SSL MADI Dante Bridge offers a genuinely useful interface to this highly versatile network technology.” With 64 channels per Bridge (@ 48kHz) and up to 512 channels per 1GB network link, Dante is fully scalable and capable of providing routing channel counts into the thousands using standard IT infrastructure. In addition to the inbuilt clock redundancy options in Dante controller, the MADI Dante Bridge also includes a pair of redundant sync inputs for use as a self-redundant Dante Grand master clock. www.solidstatelogic.com
