Yamaha’s latest Dante R-series I/O unit, the RMio64-D rack unit for Dante/Madi conversion is aimed at broadcast and live sound applications where it allows audio from a CL/QL live sound (or other Dante-equipped) system to be converted to Madi and fed to an OB vehicle or other recording facility. Alternatively, it can allow a Madi-based console to be easily integrated into a Nuage system for postproduction.

Yamaha RMio64-D Dante/Madi converterThe inputs and outputs of the RMio64-D feature built-in sample rate conversion, ensuring sources with differing word clocks can be connected without noise or dropouts. In addition to redundant Dante network connections, the RMio64-D supports Madi redundancy through simultaneous coaxial and optical connections. There’s also Madi Split (loopback) capability, where a signal received at either the coaxial or optical input can be also retransmitted to the other output.

The RMio64-D can be mounted via the CL/QL console touchscreen displays, with remote control of Dante patching and sample-rate converter settings (support of which is planned for a future update). Precision synchronisation with Nuage system Direct Monitoring and VST System Link functions is also provided, as well as remote control from the Nuage Workgroup Manager software.

‘The RMio64-D allows smooth, simple connection between Madi, a standard multichannel audio format and the Dante digital audio networking protocol, which is rapidly increasing in use worldwide,’ says Yamaha Pro Music & Pro Audio Marketing Director, Nils-Peter Keller. ‘Built-in sample rate conversion effectively overcomes word clock synchronisation issues that would otherwise limit the choices in system design, while extensive compatibility with CL/QL series consoles and Nuage systems significantly enhances the value of those products for use in a wide range of situations.’
