BroaMan MD Tine Helmle with Maciek Janiszewski
The Netherlands - BroaMan (Broadcast Manufactur GmbH) reported a hugely successful IBC Show in Amsterdam following a major media and customer launch for its new Mux22 MADI device.

In addition, the company presented its latest joint custom solution with Amptown System Company (ASC) and was also able to reveal that it had again networked three stands (including its own with Clear-Com and DiGiCo) in real time, using single mode fibre network solutions.

After an introduction from MD Tine Helmle, BroaMan's applications engineering manager Maciek Janiszewski presented the latest addition to its Mux22 platform, which offers scalable and protocol independent solutions for up to 16 3G/HD/SD-SDI I/O configurable video ports with built-in CWDM multiplexer. The arrival of Mux22 MADI makes the platform compatible with the industry standard MADI audio format.

As with all Mux22 devices the new Mux22 MADI will support up to eight video channels with a selectable number of dual inputs and dual outputs; it is also equipped with a Sync Board for Video Tri/Bi-Level or Audio Word Clock sync, either with RS485 or GPIO ports, and can provide fibre tunnels for any third party products.

The new MADI board is populated with four duplex SC MADI ports, offering 256 inputs and 256 outputs, and each MADI port is fully AES10 compatible, offering 56 or 64-channel MADI I/O. The audio engine is equipped with a single channel router, enabling routing from/to any MADI stream, either within the same device or between the remote Optocore, BroaMan or ProGrid devices.

Maciek also introduced the new breakout box created by German dealer, Amptown Systems Company, for whom sales manager, Stefan Thomsen, was on hand.

The breakout box had been specified by Amptown's customer - Thomas Ahr from CS Com. It takes the form of a portable rack with Mux22 video, audio and intercom I/O module built in. This provides connection panels with BroaMan COM between main and remote locations as well as external power for a camera. The AUX port of the Mux22 is therefore used to transport SMPTE fibre between a remote Sony Camera and Sony CCU.
