The 9371 offers a comprehensive solution for digital audio transport conversion and embedding/de-embedding. A full unrestricted audio crosspoint provides channel routing between any channels on an SDI stream, discrete AES-3id, and AES-10 MADI interfaces.
The card MADI interface supports a 64-channel payload at the industry standard 48 kHz sampling rate, and can reliably receive from 1694A cable runs up to 250m, thereby allowing longer MADI cable runs without resorting to fiber cabling. All SDI embedding and SDI output timing is timed in common to a selected timing source. A built-in DAC provides a convenient 2-channel confidence analog monitor output that can monitor any selected output or mixed output selections. The line-level output directly interfaces with audio monitoring units or powered monitors.
Utilizing the openGear® open-architecture platform, the 9371 offers scalable incorporation and the easy-to-use DashBoard™ setup and control operator interface. Full user remote and card-edge monitor/control allows full card status and control access locally or across a standard Ethernet network.
