Wohler has re-invented in-rack MADI monitoring and mixing with the new iAM-MADI, specifically designed for fast-paced OB and live-to-air production environments. The iAM-MADI provides intuitive metering and monitoring of MADI audio, with instant access to 8 stored configurations of any user-defined channel groups (8 each) for easy navigation between all 64 channels in a MADI stream. The iAM-MADI comes equipped with BNC with options for multimode or singlemode fiber interfaces as standard.
In addition to its unique capabilities as a standalone MADI audio monitor and mixer, multiple units can be controlled and configured from a single PC workstation. The iAM-MADI supports fast configuration and use of multiple distributed units within a MADI network via an Ethernet connection with a free, downloadable software GUI. An added benefit of the iAM-MADI is its ability to convert between optical and BNC. It's the perfect solution for any application that requires a simple, compact system for monitoring MADI-delivered audio. 16-channel/iAM-MADI-16 and 8-channel/iAM-MADI-08 units are available.
MADI (AES10) is an industry-standard electronic communications protocol that defines the data format and electrical characteristics of an interface carrying multiple channels of digital audio. The main advantages of MADI are that it supports a great number of channels per line, plus transmission of audio signals over 100 meters of coax and up to 2 km of optical fiber with the multi-mode model, or up to 20 km of optical fiber with the single-mode model.
