System Requirements
The Digidesign ADAT Bridge I/O requires:
• A Pro Tools 24 MIX or MIXplus, Pro Tools 24 or Pro Tools III system, on an appropriate Mac OS or Windows NT CPU.
• Version 4.3 or higher of the Pro Tools software and associated versions of DAE and the DigiSystem INIT.
• An external mixing console and monitoring system (amplifier, speakers, headphones, etc.).
• One or more ADAT or ADAT-compatible devices.

Quote
The ADAT Bridge connects to your Pro Tools card in exactly the same way as an 888 or 882 interface, using a multiway cable running from the back of the unit to the computer card. If you already have an interface connected you can connect to the DSP Farm card instead, and if you have two interfaces already, you can use a special Y-cable (which Digidesign can supply) to connect two interfaces to one socket on the back of the card.

ADAT Bridge I/O Features
• 16 discrete channels of digital input and output for transferring digital audio between Pro Tools and ADAT optical interface-equipped devices.
• 2-channel 24-bit D/A converters for superior analog monitoring.
• S/PDIF and AES/EBU digital inputs and outputs.
• Slave Clock input and output, and Word Clock output for synchronizing and resolving your Pro Tools/ADAT system to an external synchronization source using Digidesign or third-party synchronization peripherals.
• Up to five ADAT Bridge I/Os can be used with Pro Tools for a maximum of 72 channels of I/O.
• The ADAT Bridge 24 I/O allows you to use an ADAT-compatible device as an audio interface for Pro Tools by using its A/D and D/A converters

The ADAT Bridge I/O can also be used as a standalone digital converter (S/PDIF or AES/EBU-to-ADAT optical). This capability allows you to digitally transfer audio from DAT or CD to ADAT without having to power on your computer or launch Pro Tools
