SSL demonstrates SDI-MADI audio de-embedder

At IBC (stand 8.D83) Solid State Logic is demonstrating its new SDI-MADI audio de-embedder with four auto-sensing 3Gb/s SDI inputs and 64 channel MADI fiber and AES Digital audio outputs.

The SDI-MADI addresses the need within broadcast facilities to connect audio equipment to an SDI-based infrastructure. Occupying only 1RU of space, the unit provides the interface between SDI video bit streams and digital audio. The SDI-MADI extracts up to 16 audio channels from each of the unit’s four SDI inputs to provide a total of up to 64 audio channels in both MADI and AES3 formats.

All SDI inputs independently auto-sense between 3G, HD and SD standards, and are provided with loop-through connectivity for downstream equipment.

With a comprehensive range of synchronizing options and switchable sample rate convertors, the SDI-MADI is designed to seamlessly integrate into any broadcast environment where SDI-embedded audio channels require format conversion.

Key features include auto-detection of SD/HD/3Gb/s input format, active loop-through of each input to 75Ù BNC output connection, full Dolby E/Dolby Digital transparency for loop through, a 32 x AES digital audio output via 37-pin D-Sub, dual 64-channel MADI digital audio output via ST multimode optical and coax, several sync options (word clock, AES, black and burst, SDI 1-4), word clock and AES sync outputs, on-board sample rate convertors (SRCs), enabled locally or remotely via GPI and dual power supplies with separate IEC mains connectors.

An optional 19in AES signal breakout panel that provides AES3-id outputs on 32 x BNC connectors is also available.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
