24 Bit / 192 kHz, 2 x 64-Channel MADI AES/EBU Converter, 19", 2RU

RMEs ADI-6432 offers 64 channels of format conversion from MADI to AES and vice versa. Typical applications include two ADI-6432 used as digital multicore, or one unit used as AES/EBU frontend for the Hammerfall DSP MADI PCI card. Up to 192 kHz at 24-Bit are supported. Built with 2 units height there is enough space for all connectors and control elements. Of course the unit includes lots of typical RME-features:

- Support for up to 192 kHz with MADI and AES
- Unique status displays for MADI and AES
- SteadyClock for maximum jitter reduction and clock regeneration
- Completely remote controlable via MIDI
- Transfer of MIDI data via MADI
- Transfer of RS232 data via MADI

The compact unit with 19" width and 2 unit height serves as format converter MADI to/from AES (schematic view). MADI handles 64 channels of 24-Bit audio at sampling frequencies up to 48 kHz, 32 channels up to 96 kHz, and 16 channels up to 192 kHz. All channels are transferred across a single cable, either coaxial (BNC) or optical network cable. In both cases, cable lengths of more than 100 meters can be achieved. The AES/EBU channels are provided as 32 AES/EBU inputs and outputs via D-sub connectors. The ADI-6432 accepts 56 channels and 64 channels as well as 96k frame at its input, and can be set to generate those formats at its output.

ADI-6432R
ADI-6432R: The RME ADI-6432R is identical to the ADI-6432, but can be connected to two different electrical circuits. If one of these circuits fails, the ADI-6432 R will continue to operate without interruption.
  • Sixty-four channel MADI/AES format converter
  • Support for up to 192kHz sample rates with MADI and AES
  • Supplies word clock in Single, Double and Quad Speed, distributes Double Wire 96kHz signals into the MADI data stream and to the AES ports and supports the double MADI sample rate (96k frame)
  • SyncAlign and SyncCheck technologies ensure perfect synchronization and clear detection of errors
  • Extensive status displays give information about Lock and Sync states, audio content and the physical quality of the incoming signal
  • A fully automatic input selection between optical and coaxial input offers a useful redundancy mode for critical applications
  • Multiple units can be stacked and operated sample-aligned, using word clock.
  • MADI Merge, using two units, allows two MADI streams to be merged from two sources, and sent on via a single MADI cable. Useful in situation where the two sources are not utilizing their full sixty-four channel counts
  • The unit can be also used as a MADI to MADI converter. For instance, an AMS Neve Logic DFC only accepts the fifty-six channel input format. The ADI-6432 can read either format at its input or output
  • All settings are stored when the unit is switched off
  • Sixteen MIDI channels can be transferred across MADI even with sixty-four audio channels
  • The device can be fully remote controlled and configured via MIDI and all status displays can be queried through MIDI
  • Each unit in a multiple-unit setup can be given a separate ID, allowing separate remote control of the devices utilizing only a single MIDI channel
  • Compatible to MADI interfaces of companies like Sony, Merging, Lawo, Euphonix, Stagetec, Junger, Audio Service, AMS and others
  • Input MADI: 1 x BNC, 1 x optical
  • Input AES/EBU: 32 x, 4 x per D-sub connector, transformer balanced, highly sensitive input stage (< 0.3 Vpp), SPDIF compatible
