The ADI-6432R BNC provides 64 channels of format conversion from MADI to AES-3id* and vice versa. Based on RME’s highly successful MADI-AES/AES-MADI converter ADI-6432, the newly developed ADI-6432R BNC offers broadcasters ease of integration and fail-safe operation through the utilization of industry standard BNC connectors and dual redundant power supplies, while offering 64 channels of I/O capability. The BNC version targets broadcast and professional users who require AES-3id connections – coaxial 75 Ohm cables with up to 300m length.
Typical applications include two ADI-6432R used as digital multicore, or one unit used as AES-3id frontend for the RME HDSPe MADI card. Built in 2 height units the ADI-6432R BNC provides 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
• Redundant power supply
The ADI-6432R BNC provides both coaxial (BNC) and optical (glass fiber) MADI connectors, and 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.
As an option, the ADI-6432R is also available with Single Mode MADI connectors, which make the ADI-6432R BNC compatible to existing single-mode networks and to MADI signal distribution over extremely long distances (up to 10km).
*) AES-3id, an extension to the AES-3 standard also known as AES/EBU, carries the exact same data, but uses a different cable (75 Ohm unbalanced instead of 110 Ohm balanced) with different connectors (BNC instead of XLR) and lower voltage (1 Vpp instead of 4 Vpp).
