Description

The ADI-642 is an eight-channel format converter from MADI to AES and vice versa. MADI handles sixty-four channels of 24-bit audio at sampling frequencies up to 48kHz, thirty-two channels up to 96kHz and sixteen channels at 192kHz. All channels are transferred across a single cable, using either a coaxial (BNC) or optical network cable. The AES/EBU channels are provided via 4 XLR inputs and outputs, respectively.

Amongst other applications, the unit can serve as an AES/EBU front-end for RME's Hammerfall DSP MADI PCI card. An easy-to-use 72 x 74 routing matrix can assign any individual input channel to every single output channel, allowing for the free configuration of all sixty-four MADI channels and the eight AES channels.

When the single-space rack-mount unit is serving as a format converter, cable lengths of more than 100 meters can be achieved. The ADI-642 accepts both fifty-six and sixty-four channel standards as well as 96k frame at its input and can be set to generate both these formats at its output. This way the ADI-642 can serve as an interface between otherwise incompatible MADI devices.

Features:

  • direct support for MADI Double and Quad Wire
  • Automatic Delay Compensation when using more than one unit
  • Analog stereo monitor output, up to 192 kHz
  • Detailed status display for MADI and AES
  • Completely remote controlable via MIDI
  • Transfer of MIDI data via MADI
  • SteadyClock for maximum jitter reduction and clock regeneration

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.

Qualifying main centers include:

  • Brisbane
  • Sydney
  • Adelaide

Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.

While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).

If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.

Please Note: Shipping via DHL is not available to PO boxes and/ or parcel boxes etc.
