Yamaha RMIO64-D - 1U Dante to MADI Converter and Sample Rate Conversion
The new Yamaha RMio64-D represents the third chapter in the R Series release history, providing unprecedented capabilities for CL/QL console or Nuage DAW systems that use Dante networking. Audio from a CL/QL live sound system can be converted to MADI and fed to an OB vehicle, or a MADI based console can be easily integrated into a Nuage system for post production, for example.
Word clock synchronization is often an issue when converting between different audio formats, but the RMio64-D MADI inputs and outputs feature built-in sample rate conversion so that sources with differing word clocks can be connected without causing noise or dropouts. In addition to redundant Dante network connections, the RMio64-D additionally supports MADI redundancy through simultaneous coaxial and optical connections. There’s also MADI Split (loopback) capability, in which a signal received at either the coaxial or optical input can be also retransmitted to the other output.
