Press release from Magna Systems and Engineering

Magna Systems and Engineering has announced that it has sold the very first innovative MADI-16 Plus card available in Australia to Channel Ten in Melbourne.


Magna Systems Product Specialist Lucas Bohm said, “The market has been waiting for the MADI-16 Plus card for some time and Channel Ten had the foresight to order the first one before they had even started shipping. The reason that the MADI-16 Plus card is so unique is that it expands the Telex ADAM talkback system configuration capabilities by utilizing MADI (Multichannel Audio Digital Interface) technology to connect any AES-10 compliant devices over coaxial or fibre connections at sampling rates of 44.1kHz and 48kHz. The MADI-16 Plus also has a point-to-point configuration which provides for little or no delay in the transmission of audio across lines.”

The MADI-16 Plus is fully scalable allowing 16 to 64 channels of audio in and audio out and supports all standard, hot-swappable and configurable features through RTS’ AZedit configuration software.

Bohm continued, “The MADI-16 Plus card also allows for fibre connections that offer single and multiple mode connection with a range of up to 15km between intercom frames, has RS232/485 via an RJ45 serial connection for a serial pass-through port connection and installs easily in any available slot in an RTS Telex ADAM Intercom/Talkback System.”
