Safe, reliable operation
M.1k2 offer the highest
reliability thanks to two phase-redundant power supplies with separate
IEC inlets and AC power switches on the rear panel. Furthermore, two
MADI ports may be configured as redundant pairs. In the event of a
problem, an automatic, click-free changeover takes place between the
modules and the user is informed via the software interface.
4 GPOs may be used for signalling events or integration in the studio.
Doppelganger (Device Mirroring)
One (or more) M.1k2s can
be configured to act as a slave to one master device. All configuration
data (crosspoints, port configuration, labels etc.) is synchronized
The M.k12 may be clocked by any MADI input, word
clock, video reference input or it can serve as a clock generator. The
system clock is provided at two additional word clock outputs.
Each MADI port may have its own clock reference,
extending the application of the M.1k2 in mixed clock
environments.MADImatrixAll audio signals can be routed arbitrarily,
either in groups or singly. Non-audio signals can also be routed. All
input signals are refreshed, keeping the user bits unchanged at the
A powerful CSV import/export function is
provided for I/O labelling. Switchable layers display either customized
names or the port/channel number.
Snapshots containing all routing,
label, port and clock configuration settings in one single package can
be grouped in projects and exchanged between different M.1k2 devices.
Individual parts of a snapshot may be restored at any time.
Individual function control based on
definable permission classes can be setup for different users enabling
these users to share device control in complex environments according to
their level of permission.
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.
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.
Several plugins enable external control of the unit in various ways. Currently supported methods are:
- SWP-08 (network and serial)
