RME ADI-4 DD Format Converter

The RME ADI-4 DD Format Converter is a highly cost-efficient AES to ADAT and ADAT to AES converter. Support for up to 96 kHz, active jitter suppression, Intelligent Clock Control (ICC), SyncCheck, SyncAlign, Bitclock PLL, and SteadyClock make the ADI-4 DD a perfect link between the formats mostly used today.

The RME ADI-4 DD Format Converter consists of two 8-channel digital form at converters in reference quality, in a half-rack space enclosure with 1 unit height. The compact RME ADI-4 DD has numerous extraordinary features like Intelligent Clock Control (ICC), SyncCheck, SyncAlign, Bitclock PLL, SteadyClock, active jitter suppression and patchbay functionality.

The actual states of incoming and outgoing signals and ongoing operations within the unit are displayed by LEDs in an easily overseeable way. SyncCheck ® , already found in other RME products, not only shows if an input signal is locked, but also if multiple inputs are in synchronicity. Furthermore RMEs SyncAlign ® technology prevents accidental errors of ± 1 sample misalignment between the AES/EBU inputs. The AES output signal can be set to Professsional or Consumer subcode. Channel 1/2 can optionally be received and output optically (TOSLINK).

RME's SteadyClock(TM) technology guarantees an excellent performance in all clock modes. Its highly efficient jitter suppression enables the RME ADI-4 DD to refresh and clean up any clock signal, and to provide the clock signal as reference clock at the word clock output. Additionally, Intelligent Clock Control (ICC) will maintain the last sample rate detected as valid in case of fault and loss of input signal. The RME ADI-4 DD can be stacked without limit, all devices will be sample synchronous by using word clock. All settings are stored at power-off.

The RME ADI-4 DD basically consists of two converters: four AES-3 inputs to double ADAT outputs, and double ADAT inputs to four AES-3 outputs. The double ADAT ports enable full 8 channel support, from 32 kHz up to 96 kHz (S/MUX). The unit provides one XLR I/O directly. A DB-25 connector allows for a use of industry standard AES-3 I/O breakout cables. Setting an internal connector easily changes the DB-25 connector to meet the pinout of Tascam (Digidesign), Yamaha and Euphonix cables.
