Optocore M Series Madi devicesOptocore has signalled a significant extension to its commitment to the Madi standard, with the launch of advanced M Series devices.

‘Throughout the years there have been many voices that believed Madi would not survive the increased number of network protocols,’ says company founder Marc Brunke. ‘However, we have observed the complete opposite – Madi is the easiest and most popular multichannel protocol, and is built into almost any professional equipment.’

He adds that it is the many advantages of Madi that help it retain its popularity – in addition to its easy implementation by any manufacturer. It is extremely cost-effective, there is no problem with inter-operability between different manufacturers, it doesn’t require any special network equipment and it offers very high performance with very low latency.

‘Creating a Madi-based system requires just a cable connection with no special third-party device configuration,’ Brunke adds. ‘In fact the DD2FR-FX and DD4MR-FX Madi devices are among our best selling products.’

The M Series comprises two modules with a number of interfaces:

The M8 has four Madi ports: four dual BNC or four duplex fibre, two SANE ports (which support Madi over Cat5) and two Optocore hi-speed fibre uplinks

The M12 has eight Madi ports: eight dual BNC or eight duplex fibre or four dual BNC and four duplex fibre, two SANE ports and two Optocore hi-speed fibre uplinks

In addition, each of the new Madi devices can work as a stand-alone router with single-channel non-blocking matrix – and each can be integrated with any other Optocore interface. The company believes that it now offers the most powerful Madi router on the market with the smallest footprint – in a 1U-high rackmount, users can interface 640 Madi inputs and 640 Madi outputs and route any single channel between Madi streams. and also through the redundant fibre Optocore uplinks.

Shipping of the M Series will begin in May 2015.
