Avid VENUE | MADI Option Card
Integrate your Profile, D-Show, or Mix Rack System into any MADI environment. With the MADI Option Card, you can send up to 64 channels of audio from your Avid VENUE system to other MADI devices—and vice-versa. It’s an easy and reliable way to route a large number of audio channels to digital mixing consoles and mobile recording setups.
Install a single card in an FOH Rack or Mix Rack to send and receive up to 64 audio channels over MADI. Or install up to two MADI cards in an FOH Rack to send and receive up to 128 audio channels.

Here are some practical applications for using the Avid VENUE | MADI Option Card.
Scenario 1: Sharing Stage inputs with one or more consoles
A single optical or coaxial cable is all you need to transmit up to 64 audio channels between Avid VENUE systems. This connection includes all 48 Stage inputs, plus 16 more audio channels of your choice.
You can employ this workflow with any combination of MADI-compatible Avid VENUE systems at the FOH and monitor positions, or with any other MADI-equipped mixing console. And if you’re using two Stage Racks in your setup, just add a second MADI card to send all 96 inputs, plus another 32 channels of your choice, for a total of 128 audio channels.
Scenario 2: Audio distribution in a permanent installation
Many concert halls, stadiums, and houses of worship have already made significant investments in MADI infrastructures to connect and route audio between facilities. With the MADI card, you can easily integrate your Avid VENUE system into these types of permanent installations.
