What is it?
A MADI bridge offering ‘multiplicity of digital connection opportunities’ for REAC products such as the V-Mixing consoles, M-48 live personal mixer and digital snakes.
The 40-channel S-MADI REAC Bridge provides bi-directional signal conversion between MADI and REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) – a protocol developed to meet the need for point-to-point 24-bit/96kHz, low-latency digital audio transport. It provides connectivity between any MADI-equipped digital audio mixer/system and any of Roland’s REAC products to facilitate the use of V-Mixing Consoles as sub-mixers with many large-format digital mixing consoles. It also provides easy distribution and splitting of audio from V-Mixing or digital snake systems to outside broadcast trucks and other MADI-equipped locations. The system features MADI coaxial and optical I/O, support for REAC embedded power (to power the M-48 personal mixer and/or S-0808 I/O unit) as well as support for 44.1/48kHz audio with locking to WORD, MADI or REAC clocks.
