The IQAMD40 provides multichannel MADI-to-IP interfacing, and has been developed to allow high-density audio integration into Ethernet IP networks. Using industry standard AES67 encapsulation and a 10 GbE interface enables the IQAMD40 to interface directly with many common audio desks and systems.
IQAMD40 also allows configuration of audio channels for IP streams, and provides stream compatibility by offering packet time adjustment. Two audio tone generators are also available to enable link testing and configuration.
IQAMD40 fully integrates with remote control and monitoring systems to provide easy set up and real-time information on signal presence and status for each channel. It’s also fully compatible with Grass Valley’s new broadcast-centric IP routing and network management solution designed to migrate broadcasters from a traditional baseband routing and control environment to new hybrid SDI and IP workflows.
Handles up to 16 MADI signals (8 in & 8 out) over dual 10 GbE IP links, with the option to provide MADI link redundancy
Audio delay per IP stream of up to 255 ms
Dual SFP/QSFP to provide link redundancy
Uncompressed PCM audio transport using AES67
Timing and synchronization provided by IEEE-1588v2 (PTP), compliant with SMPTE ST 2059-2 and AES67 profiles
Supports unicast as well as IGMPv3 source specific multicast, allowing point to point operation or transmission in multicast groups
