Optocore announces flexible M-series MADI routing upgrade for DiGiCo consoles

Optocore has announced that it has upgraded its popular M-series MADI interfaces further, making it compatible with DiGiCo premium consoles, and providing additional functionality.

Furthermore, the new, advanced versions have all the advantages of Optocore’s popular DD-series, and much more, at exactly the same price point, making it super cost-effective. M-series devices are now the principal means of plugging MADI streams directly into the DiGiCo loop to enable MADI streams to be input and output (other than DD-series and DiGiCo’s own devices).

This includes the channel count recognised by the DiGiCo devices, which is identical to the channel count provided by the DD2FR-FX and DD4MR-FX.

This upgrade applies equally to the entire M-series, as all available channels can also be freely distributed through all MADI ports on any of the five M8 and M12 devices. For example, one show could use an M12-BNC/OPT, and provide one 64/64 MADI fibre port and two 32/32 MADI BNC ports, while for another show it could be two 64/64 fibre MADI.

States Optocore applications engineering manager, Maciek Janiszewski: “The compatibility of the M-series, along with the ability to control Optocore preamps from the console, makes DiGiCo/Optocore systems by far the most effective solutions for essentially all installations.

“Furthermore, when not incorporated within the DiGiCo loop, M-series functions as stand-alone, full-capacity MADI routers; for example the M12 allows for routing of 512/512 channels at 48K.”

The new routers are shipping with immediate effect.
