Audio focus for NTP10 February 2017
NTP Technology will be presenting its DAD AX32 audio converter and DX32 digital audio bridge at BVE later this month. Designed for use in no-compromise recording studios and post production suites, the AX32 provides transparent audio signal processing and highly flexible distribution. Version 2.0 firmware includes an expanded switching matrix with 1,500 x 1,500 non-blocking cross-points for routing and splitting any input to one or more outputs.
Each input and output channel has its own level control and audio metering. All signal sources and destinations can be assigned a label which is then stored. The summing system has a capacity of 32 output buses and 256 inputs which can be used for Pro | Mon monitor control as well as the Cue | Mix zero latency cue mixing system.
A companion product to the AX32, the DAD DX32 is a low-latency routing interface designed for applications such as multi-room recording studios, post production facilities and audio distribution installations. It allows all digital input and output routing to be managed within a single unit or a combination of units. The DX32 can be used to expand input/output channel count and to interface digital components. It allows high quality bridging between AES/EBU, MADI, Avid Pro Tools HDX and the Dante IP audio network.
