Plug 64 I/Os to the network.
Just like that.

The VERTO MX is a high-quality solution to connect a wide range of MADI equipment to a Dante/AES67 network with up to 192 kHz. The ultra-compact device is an easy way, to “dantify” an existing MADI live or studio setup with 64 x 64 channel operation. It can also simply turn MADI interfaces, like the RME MADIface series, into Audio-over-IP computer interfaces.

Connected to a Dante network, the VERTO MX is immediately detected with all 128 I/Os and automatically configured. This way every room with a LAN connection can be used for recording or mixing – simply plug the device into the network and start to work.

Besides the two Dante network ports with fail-safe redundancy, the VERTO MX provides two redundant MADI ports. If one line is failing, the other one takes over – automatically, without any noticeable sample or IP packet loss.

The VERTO MX provides an additional Word Clock I/O and MIDI I/O.

Thanks to the small footprint, any VERTO converter fits into mobile setups and can be easily carried for safety’s sake as Dante connection kit for stage boxes or OB Vans. In any case its a huge problem solver for studio and live sound applications: simply plug 64 I/Os to the network. With a common CAT5/6 cable – just like that.

Two versions with ADAT I/Os, replacing the MADI I/O are available:
VERTO64 / VERTO32.

Additional rack mount kit.

MADI and Audio-over-IP – seamlessly integrated.

Dante Plug & Play Eco System

The VERTO MX fits directly into scalable network infrastructures of the Dante Eco System. The fabulous Dante control software allows the routing of all channels freely within the network.

Redundant MADI I/O

The VERTO MX provides a coaxial MADI I/O via BNC and optical SFP module with LC connector. The default Multimode module can be exchanged with a Singlemode module (order here).

Remote Control via Network

The VERTO MX can be remotely controlled via the Dante Network. MADI and Dante audio streams can be used to send and receive MIDI messages – embedded in the Dante or MADI signals.

Dante I/O Channels

MADI I/O (redundant)

MADI SFP Optical + MADI Coaxial.
Channel count with higher samplerates:
32 channels with up to 96 kHz and 16 channel with up to 192 kHz.
The LC connector connects to SC via an included adapter cable.

MIDI I/O

MADI and Dante data streams can be used to send and receive embedded MIDI messages. A very useful feature, to remotely control MIDI equipment in the studio rack or on stage from the FOH.

Word Clock I/O

BNC with 75 Ohm termination.
Set to on by default – can be changed with the remote software via the network connection.

Dante Network I/O (redundant)

Two RJ-45 ports connect to any Dante audio network. Simply connect a LAN Ethernet cable (CAT5/CAT6) to the primary port. The secondary port takes automatically over in case of a network error (Dante Port Redundancy).

VERTO MX MADI Format

Digital Multicore. Lightweight.

MADI is the industry standard for multi-channel audio at modern concert tours around the globe, classical music recordings, install sound and music studios. Setups with several hundred channels in a complex setup, including recording interfaces, mixing consoles and converters to all existing audio formats, are easy to realize.

Ferrofish consequently supports MADI and offers industry-leading products, like the VERTO MX and the high-density converters of the A-Series with seamless integration to other formats. 64- and 56-channel MADI formats are supported.

MADI, Made by Ferrofish provides a set of advanced MADI features – integrated into the VERTO MX:

VERTO MX - Dante Network

MADI to the Net.

The Ferrofish VERTOMX delivers all the industry-leading features of Dante in a single compact device. Including 64 channels bi-directional transmission and port redundancy of both formats. VERTOMX simply adds Dante and AES67 connectivity to a MADI audio interface or converter. It can integrate isolated islands of MADI devices to a Dante network or add group of network devices to a MADI-driven mixing console.

VERTOMX is out-of-the-box compatible with any other Dante-enabled device. It fits directly into the scalable network infrastructure – with the connection of a simple CAT5/6 cable. The device is immediately detected with all 64 I/Os and automatically configured. Every room with a Dante LAN connection can be used for recording or mixing – simply plug the VERTOMX into the network and start to work.

Dante is the fastest growing Audio-over-IP Eco System, with countless compatible products from more than a hundred manufacturers.

As a Layer 3 IP-based protocol Dante can work with off-the-shelf network hardware. The usual in-house GBit LAN is perfectly suited for any Dante application with several hundred audio channels. Setting up a Dante network is typically just a matter of plugging devices into an Ethernet switch and connecting a computer for channel routing and management to the network.

A huge advantage of Dante – besides Plug & Play with automatically recognized device names – is the fabulous Dante software manager. With its help audio signals can be made available anywhere and everywhere in the network – even kilometers away. Patching and routing down to a single channel is done in software and not over physical wired links and hardware routers. Millions of audio-payloaded IP packets travel automatically to their designated destinations, with Unicast and Multicast transmission.

Dante provides ultra-reliable clocking via Precision Time Protocol (PTP) and a sophisticated clock master selection. It supports low latency operation, adjustable from 150 microseconds to 5 ms (default: 1 ms for up to 10 switches). Dante includes a suite of diagnostic tools, monitoring the network health status, e. g. device latency monitoring, active clock health monitoring, packet error reporting, and usage statistics.

Besides the main body of audio packets, Dante transmits control data. This way Ferrofish devices can be remote controlled via the network.

Dante is developed and supported by Audinate – a single company, which guarantees a standardized solution and the ongoing compatibility of all Dante-enabled products.

All in all Dante matches perfectly the requirements of any professional audio work.
