Project Description

DirectOut Technologies M.1k2 2.0

The DirectOut M.1k2 is a scalable16 port MADI router that provides a powerful routing matrix for up to 1024 x 1024 audio channels.

It has two I/O slots that can be fitted with either BNC or SC optical 8 MADI port I/O modules or one of each. The M.1k2 can be operated with one I/O 8 port module and may be upgraded to 16 ports as required.

Two phase redundant power supplies offer a high level of reliability in the M.1k2 and in addition two MADI ports may be configured as redundant pairs. In the event of a problem, an automatic changeover between the modules takes place click free and the user is informed via the software interface or a GPO event.

The M.1k2 may be clocked by any MADI input, wordclock signal, video reference input or it can serve as a clock generator. The system clock is supplied at two additional wordclock outputs. MADI Matrix
All the audio signals can be routed randomly, in groups or singly and non-audio signals can also be routed. All the input signals are refreshed keeping the user bits unchanged at the output.

Embedder / De-embedder Matrix
Serial data (MIDI, RS-232, RS-422/485) embedded in the MADI signal or from the hardware interfaces can be routed separately from the audio signal. 4 GPOs may be used for signalling events or integration in the studio.

Remote Access
Remote operation is via a network connection and web browser interface. Concurrent access from other locations is possible and is not limited to a specific operating system. Firmware updates can be installed via Ethernet or USB.
