midi time code and midi machine control.
you would setup both DAW on the same frame rate. use midi over lan app like musiclabs midi overlan and install on both computers. set it up so MTC goes out one DAW and enters the other all via network.
each DAW would have specific settings. PT is set to slave mtc.
as for MADI. you could go RME or SSL. there are a few articles with greg hanson williams who uses ssl delta and alpha link.
now avid has madi . but basically its any madi interface that connects to pro tools HD cards. like avid madi, ssl madi and DAD madi.
so the main DAW and the slaves will have MADI and will go out to the PT HD MADI .
or if you have VEP then the slaves go into the main DAW and out madi/adat to PT HD .
btw -- also adat works. which is what i use. maudio lightbridge on PT HD9 on a mac mini and on the main DAW its logic with RME FF800.
