HHB named Master Distributor for DiGiCo’s UB MADI at IBC 2012
Friday 7th September 2012
Professional audio technology specialists HHB Communications has been appointed the Master Distributor for DiGiCo’s UB MADI in the UK and Ireland.
Announced during the IBC 2012 show on HHB’s stand in Hall 8 (8.D56), this news further extends the companies relationship as it follows the recent appointment of HHB as DiGiCo’s UK Broadcast Dealer.
A renowned UK digital console manufacturer, DiGiCo’s broadcast product line is comprised of powerful digital mixing consoles and complementary connectivity solutions catered for live broadcast production. UB MADI bolsters this product group by providing up to 48 simultaneous channels of MADI I/O (full-duplex) in and out of a PC or MAC via a USB 2.0 port. Compact and portable, the UB MADI is bus powered and capable of transporting signals up to distances of 100 meters.
Despite numerous alternatives, MADI is still the preferred method of transporting large numbers of audio channels for large-scale productions due to its low latency and reliability. UB MADI’s highly tuned processer and driver provide industry leading low latencies with simultaneous MADI playback and recording with any compatible computer or laptop.
UB MADI features the latest Stealth Digital Processing FPGA from DiGiCo’s SD range of consoles, therefore extending audio I/O over USB 2.0 with a DiGiCo mixer to 48 simultaneous channels of I/O. Fully upgradable, the UB MADI is a sound long term investment in MADI connectivity via USB.
HHB Director of Sales Martin O’Donnell comments: “The release of UB MADI will be welcomed by broadcast engineers because it simplifies the process of MADI recording and playback. The compact size of UB MADI also makes it a very versatile product that engineers can carry in their pocket.”
DiGiCo MD James Gordon explains: “The UB MADI complements our broadcast console range by making it easier than ever to record and playback large numbers of MADI to any laptop or computer. It is truly a plug-and-play device with sophisticated technology derived from our award-winning SD range.”
UB MADI is available now from HHB at a list price of £750.00 ex VAT (€945.00).
HHB will be exhibiting a range of DiGiCo’s digital consoles throughout the show. Visitors are invited to stop by the booth for a product demo and to pick up a free copy of the HHB 2012 Catalogue and the new Broadcast Sound Technology Update brochure.
