Roland Systems Group debuted its S-MADI REAC Bridge at this year’s InfoComm Show in June. The S-MADI REAC Bridge, a bi-directional signal converter between MADI and REAC, enables connectivity between Roland’s REAC products (M-48 Personal Mixing System) to MADI-equipped digital audio mixers/systems, including DiGiCo’s SD7, SD8, SD9 and D Series consoles. DiGiCo states that its technical director, John Stadius, worked closely with Roland engineers to ensure smooth functionality and interconnectivity with DiGiCo’s mixing systems.

“We appreciate DiGiCo’s enthusiasm and support of the S-MADI,“ says John Broadhead, vice president of Roland Systems Group. “We’re pleased that the world of REAC products can now be interconnected with any MADI device. In particular, the award-winning M-48 Personal Mixing System is a great pairing with high-end digital mixing solutions, such as what is offered from DiGiCo and their D and SD Series consoles.”

The S-MADI satisfies the increasing demand for a digital connection between large digital mixing consoles and Roland's M-48 Personal Mixing System and Digital Snakes. It is also designed to easily distribute/split audio from V-Mixing Systems or Digital Snake systems to outside broadcast trucks and other MADI-equipped locations.

The S-MADI REAC Bridge features 40 channels of bi-directional conversion between REAC and MADI; MADI coaxial and optical I/O; support for REAC Embedded Power to power M-48 Personal Mixer and/or S-0808 I/O unit; support for 44.1/48 kHz with locking to WORD, MADI or REAC clocks; and 56- and 64-channel REAC/MADI offset support
