For numerous users this optical interface is a mystery.Very few have ever dealt with huge cabinets full of professional network technology. Therefore, here are some explanations regarding `MADI optical': The cables have an internal fibre of only 50 or 62.5 ‘m (microns) in diameter and a coating of 125 ‘m. The plugs used are an industry standard, called SC. The cables are available as a duplex variant (2 cables being glued together) or as a simplex variant (1 cable). The transmission uses the multi-mode technique, which supports cable lengths of up to almost 2000 meters.
MADI is being used as a multi-Channel link between mixing consoles, DAWs or multi-track recorders or other digital outboard gear, as a transmission format in large scale digital audio routing systems, to transmit digitized microphone and line signals from a stage box to a theatre or studio mixing console.
