NTP unveils digital audio bridge6 March 2014
NTP Technology has added to its Digital Audio Denmark range with the new DX32 digital audio bridge and router interface. Designed for multiple audio applications, it allows digital input and output routing to be managed within a single unit or combination of units.
With near zero latency, the DX32 can be used to expand I/O channel count and interface digital components, providing a bridge between AES/EBU, MADI, Pro Tools HDX and the Dante IP audio network. The 384×384 router can patch any input to any one or more outputs on a mono channel basis. It supports sample rates of up to 384kHz and Super Audio CD formats.
In its interface role, the DX32 provides up to 192 channels on one electrical MADI I/O port and two optical ports, 64 channels on Pro Tools HDX, 16 AES/EBU channels and 64 channels on Ethernet Layer 3 using Dante IP audio technology.
Integrating the DAD DX32 digital audio bridge with a DAD AX32 AD/DA converter system allows users to add analogue and digital interfaces into an existing recording studio, audio mastering or post production system. Control is via Ethernet using DADman software which incorporates a router matrix view.
