Allen & Heath Premieres New MADI Option Card for SQ

Allen & Heath’s SQ has rapidly established itself as a go-to pro streaming console throughout 2020, and now it’s opening up even more applications with the timely addition of the new SQ MADI card.

Joining the existing Dante, SLink and WAVES option cards, the 64×64 MADI (48/96kHz) interface unlocks a host of new possibilities for integration with broadcast and recording systems, OB vans and third-party consoles.

“With its easy USB streaming and Dante options, SQ is already an ideal console for pro streaming and AV production applications where there’s a need for big features in a compact footprint,” comments Keith Johnson, SQ Product Manager. “Now, answering calls from broadcast engineers, the new SQ MADI card allows more pro broadcast applications to benefit from SQ’s powerhouse feature set and super-fast workflow.”

The SQ MADI option card is expected to ship during December, with a recommended retail price of $599USD / €499EUR.
