DirectOut introduces MADI.MONI

MADI.MONI, a compact MADI testing and monitoring device

Just in time for AES 2015, MADI specialists DirectOut, have brought out MADI.MONI, a highly ergonomic MADI tester and mobile MADI monitoring tool. MADI.MONI has been specifically designed for MADI testing and monitoring in the field and has the smallest footprint of any mobile MADI monitor on the market.

MADI.MONI offers a simple, uncluttered interface enabling users to see at a glance all format parameters as well as the signal quality of a MADI stream. Operation is extremely straightforward via four push buttons on the UI including a volume/channel selection to monitor individual channels of a MADI signal via the 3.5mm headphone jack. The device is battery powered and provides one coaxial and one SFP MADI port. A traffic light like display delivers immediate information about the physical signal condition (amplitude/jitter).

The state of the incoming MADI signal is displayed with dedicated LEDs for each parameter (sample rate, frame mode, channel format). As a result, MADI.MONI is the perfect match for engineers in the field who need a handy, easy-to-use mobile device that offers comprehensive audio monitoring combined with instant, reliable information about the link quality.


For those who require a more sophisticated analysis tool, DirectOut’s compact MADI analyzer, ANNA-LISA, is the ideal choice. Furthermore, the device’s capabilities have just been expanded with the recent release of a remote control app for Android devices.

You can check out both devices at the AES convention in New York on booth #547. Orders for MADI.MONI can be taken from now with delivery scheduled from December 1st 2015.
