Automatic, seamless MADI changeover switch for fail-safe applications

  • 2-in/2-out MADI changeover switch for critical audio playback or broadcast routing applications
  • Automatically selects secondary MADI source if primary source fails
  • Alternative manual source selection from either front panel or via GPIs
  • Available with dual fibre or coaxial and fibre I/O
  • Uses proprietary BLDS (Buffer Loop Detection Signal) as trace tone to confirm presence/validity of incoming MADI data
  • Software application (supplied) records low-level BLDS on spare DAW track
  • Can be configured to switch on loss of BLDS or MADI frames
  • Switches within 2 samples (0.02 ms) of failure detection
  • MADI data is reclocked
  • Second (parallel) output for monitoring purposes
  • 48/96 kHz-compatible
  • Seamless, inaudible changeover when sources are wordclock-synced
  • Transparent to other MADI formats (AES10)
  • LEDs confirm MADI and/or BLDS statuses
  • User-definable priority operation
  • USB port for remote control and firmware updates
  • 4 x GPI port, 4 x GPO port for signalling and control
  • Dual power supply inputs for redundancy
  • Compact free-standing unit

The EXBOX.BLDS is a development of the EXBOX.64, which provides MADI reclocking, optical/coaxial format conversion and can act as a MADI extender.
