The Behringer X-MADI 32-Channel MADI Expansion Card for X32 Digital Mixing Console is designed to expand the recording capacities of a mixer through the MADI or AES10 protocol. This card plugs into the expansion port on the back of the mixer and provides 32 simultaneous bi-directional channels of I/O through two optical duplex SC-plugs (IEC874-19) or through two BNC terminals. The optical sc-plugs support multimode fiber optic cable lengths up to 2 km and the BNC terminals support 75O coaxial cables up to 100 m. The BNC terminals can be used simultaneously with the optical SC-plugs as a redundant network for fiber optic installations.
The system supports both the 56-Channel MADI format (AES10-1991) and the 64-Channel MADI format (AES10-2003). With the card installed, the X32 digital mixing console will allow you to select a 32-channel block from the available 64 MADI channels.
