Riedel Communications, manufacturer of advanced fiber-based intercom systems, showcased a MADI card for its Artist digital matrix intercom platform at the 123rd AES Convention in New York City. Riedel’s new MADI Client Card underscores the company’s strategy to create a higher degree of integration in the broadcast studio environment.
The new card provides a MADI interface that allows the tight integration of the Artist intercom platform with digital audio router systems. All Artist intercom control panels are connected to the matrix via standard AES3 signals. Instead of laying additional cables, it is now possible to connect intercom panels to the audio router using the router’s infrastructure for panel distribution. The MADI card also offers a solution for connecting multichannel audio between the audio router and the intercom system. The MADI-108 G2 client card can be cascaded, with each card adding eight audio channels to the MADI signal up to a maximum of 64 channels. The MADI connection from the client card to the audio router occurs via co-ax or fiber cabling.
