SSL MADI-X8 Product Description

If you're in broadcast production, mobile broadcast, or scoring for film or video games, then you know how important a rock-solid audio network is. With the increasing popularity of MADI, there are more and more MADI network solutions showing up on the market these days, but few offer the power and low cost of the 8-port, 512 x 512 Solid State Logic MADI-X8. The SSL MADI-X8 is a remarkably affordable and feature-rich audio distribution/aggregation solution that lets you easily tackle some of the more persistent challenges of audio networking. The MADI-X8 makes real-time source distribution, device splitting, and source aggregation simple. Combine and distribute any number of MADI sources and receiving devices, intelligently monitor primary and secondary clock sources, and control it all from SSL's incredible cross-platform Logicitivty Browser software. You can even combine up to four MADI-X8 units in a single networkable browser, allowing you to expand your MADI system as your operation grows, without giving up your system's easy of use or simplicity.
