When planning large audio projects, the big
challenge is to meet current requirements and at the same time leave options
for future expansions. The Series 52 MADI Router 52/XR provides both: sufficient resources for all signals to be assigned
and the flexibility to enlarge your installation when required.
Via MADI, the 52/XR interconnects up to 48 audio systems via
fibre-optical cables. This includes DHD mixing systems, DHD Series 52 MADI Breakout Systems (52MB) and
as well systems of other manufacturers, presumed they can also exchange audio
signals via fibre-optical cables in
standard AES10 format with 56 oder 64 channels.
The Router is installed centrally in the audio
network and is connected in a star-layout with other audio systems in the
network. This helps keeping your audio network clearly laid-out and its
complexity stays within certain limits.
In contrast with other audio network concepts, as e.g. non – or weakly standardized Ethernet or TCP/IP audio protocol, we rely on the robust, zero-latency MADI format which is free of any problems with network configuration or administration – just »Plug & Play«. AES10 MADI is the only standardized, widely recognized, free of license and manufacturer independent multichannel transferring format for digital audio world wide.
Maximum Performance on just 6 HUWith an absolute matrix size of 4096 x 4096 Channels (48 MADI per input and output, 1024 DSP channels), the 52/XR is ready for largest audio applications:
- in broadcast stations
- in production areas
- in OB-Vans
- in theaters
Wherever you want to use the 52/XR - safety will always be one of the most important things. Therefore, the 52/XR has a built in complete redundancy for unlimited operation of the router – all important modules can be used redundantly in the system, independent from each other; the audio signals run redundantly on the passive backplane.
In the »small« version of 3 HU, the matrix size is still 2048 x 2048 (24 MADI per input and output, 512 DSP channels), making up 4 Mill. possible crosspoints. The redundancy options are also available in the 3 HU version.
