SSL Alpha-Link LIVE-R - Redundant MADI Converter

Alpha-Link LIVE-R

Low cost fixed configuration I/O

Alpha-Link LIVE-R is a versatile, low cost, high quality, fixed configuration audio converter unit. It can be used to provide local or remote I/O for both C100 HDS and C10 HD consoles or alternatively as a stand-alone format converter. Each Alpha-Link LIVE-R unit provides 24 balanced analogue inputs and outputs (with high-quality 24-bit analogue conversion) and 12 AES input and output pairs (with eight channels of 24-bit sample rate conversion). Alpha-Link LIVE-R connects to the console using fully redundant MADI over fiber to ensure absolute signal integrity and with embedded Control data, remote control of IO parameters from the console is achieved with the minimum of cabling. Alpha-Link LIVE-R includes redundant PSUs, all fitted into a compact 2U rack.
