Dante EMBEDER

Sonifex have nice new DANTE embeder/deembeder :

I really want to embed 16 audio channels from Midas M32 and record it to Hyperdeck ..

But this Sonifex is only 3G SDI.. I want it in UHD 12G ..

So my idea is to use SDI to QUAD converter .. It divide signal to 4 x 3G SDI .. I will add this Sonifex into one 3G SDI quadrant .. And back into 12G SDI with QUAD to SDI .. Will it work ?

And question is : Which audio channels are embded with QUAD TO SDI converter ? From input number 1 ?
I was looked into manual , and there is nothing about it ..

Generally speaking with Quad Link SDI, the four SDI signals are expected to be genlocked (since they logically represent a single video signal), so it's possible that if you add additional hardware in the path of 1 of the 4 signals, this will add latency to just that one signal, causing problems with the video sync.

I'm not sure whether the Quad SDI to SDI 12G converter will still recognize the input signal as valid with this kind of configuration.

Isn't the better way to do this via Dante Virtual Sound Card? and then SYNC them up in post?

It would be nice if BMD started to support Dante on some of their kit.

I've just ordered the ATEM Constellation which comes with MADI. Now at this stage MADI is pretty much a legacy system and I'm having to convert between Dante and MADI to get the audio into and out of the switcher, audio mixer and contribution lines. It's a pain and expensive.

I guess the Fairlight part of the company is comfortable with MADI but having Dante into the ATEM and Hyperdecks would be a game changer and completely awesome. It's not difficult or expensive to do, all we really need is 16 channels.
