RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode)

RME ADI-6432 R BNC 64-Channel Madi/AES Format Converter (Single-Mode)

RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) Details

RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) provides 64 channels of format conversion from MADI to AES-3id and vice versa. Based on RME's highly successful bidirectional MADI-AES/AES-MADI converter ADI-6432, the newly developed ADI-6432R BNC offers broadcasters ease of integration and fail-safe operation through the utilization of industry standard BNC connectors and dual redundant power supplies, while offering 64 channels of I/O capability. The BNC version targets broadcast and professional users who require AES-3id connections.


Built in 2 height units, RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) provides enough space for all connectors and control elements. Of course the unit includes lots of typical RME features.


AES-3id, an extension to the AES-3 standard also known as AES/EBU, carries the exact same data as the latter, but uses a different cable (75 Ohm unbalanced instead of 110 Ohm balanced) with different connectors (BNC instead of XLR) and lower voltage (1 Vpp instead of 4 Vpp). Therefore, RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) has 64 BNC connectors on its back.


RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) is available with Single Mode MADI connectors, which make the RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) compatible to existing single-mode networks and to MADI signal distribution over extremely long distances (up to 10km).


RME's SteadyClock(TM) lets the RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) use MADI without an additional word clock connection, and guarantees excellent clock quality in every situation. Due to the highly efficient jitter reduction, any clock signal - even AES and word - can be improved and refreshed, and subsequently be used as reference clock at the unit's outputs. Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) will retain the last valid sample frequency in case of a loss of the input signal.


RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) supplies word clock in Single, Double und Quad Speed, distributes Double Wire 96 kHz signals into the MADI data stream, and even supports the double MADI sample rate (96K frame). The SyncAlign® and SyncCheck® technologies known from other RME products ensure perfect synchronization and clear detection of errors. Also multiple units can be stacked and operated sample-aligned, using word clock. All settings are stored when RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter is switched off.


A fully automatic input selection between optical and coaxial input offers a useful redundancy mode for critical applications. Extensive status displays give information about lock and sync states, audio content and the physical quality of the incoming signal.


The front panel of RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) features an exciting and detailed sync and audio state display with 97 LEDs. Furthermore every function has its own keys accompanied by clear function LEDs. Especially in a professional application, exact, quick and direct control and display of all incoming and outgoing signals, including MIDI and RS232, becomes indispensable. Errors can be detected at a glance. The control keys can be locked to prevent accidental changing of settings.


RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) has a redundant power supply which can be connected to two different electrical circuits. If one of these circuits fails, RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) will continue to operate normally.


16 MIDI channels can be transferred invisibly across MADI, at the full count of 64 audio channels. The same applies to RS232: Be it 9600, 19200 or 115200 Baud, thanks to a 9-pin COM port, RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) can be used as an extender for serial cables, with no effect on the audio functionality.


Additionally RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) can be fully remote controlled and configured via MIDI, and all status displays can be queried through MIDI. Each RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) can be given a separate ID, allowing separate remote controllability of various devices with only one MIDI channel.


RME ADI-6432 R BNC MADI / AES Format Converter (Single-Mode) is compatible to any MADI interface from other companies, like Sony, Merging, Lawo, Euphonix, Stagetec, Jünger, Audio Service, AMS and others.
