Digigram to Introduce New Low-Latency, High-Density LX-MADI PCIe® Sound Card at IBC2014
LX-MADI PCIe Sound Card Offers 64/64 MADI I/O, Latency Down to 3 ms, and High Stability in Audio Production and Broadcast Automation Applications
MONTBONNOT, France — Aug. 19, 2014 — Digigram today announced that it will showcase the new LX-MADI PCI Express® (PCIe®) sound card, the latest addition to company’s unparalleled range of sound cards engineered for broadcast applications, at IBC2014. Digigram designed this card to provide radio and television broadcasters with low-latency performance and reliable multichannel synchronous audio PC connectivity in high-density audio production and automation applications.
“With the new LX-MADI PCIe card, users can establish a high permanence-of-service bridge between the PC-based content management world of digital audio workstations and automation systems and the legacy synchronous audio world based on AES10 standard Multichannel Audio Digital Interface (MADI),” said Pascal Malgouyard, head of product marketing at Digigram. “This approach simplifies the systems required to support key broadcast processes while ensuring the continued quality and reliability of audio signals.”
Equipped with an optical MADI interface, Digigram’s new LX-MADI PCIe sound card supports a 64/64 I/O channel count with low roundtrip latency down to 3 milliseconds. An embedded 64×64 matrix gives users routing and direct monitoring capabilities, along with record and play functions. Because the LX-MADI PCIe sound card is a hardware solution, it offers high stability regardless of the computational load presented by other applications running on the host system, such as editing, processing, ingest, and playout.
The new Digigram LX-MADI PCIe sound card will be shipping by the end of 2014. In the meantime, it will be available for demonstrations on the Digigram IBC2014 stand (8.C51).
