Major enhancements to the DAD AX32 audio converter, router and monitor controller are to be introduced by NTP Technology.
Exhibiting at BVE 2016 alongside distributor HHB, the Danish company will demonstrate the versatility of the AX32 on its own and also how the integration between the AX32 and the Avid S6 control surface provide a flexible platform for audio post production.
The enhancements include two new I/O option cards for the AX32, a dual MADI I/O module plus an eight-line AES3 (AES/EBU) I/O module with optional sample rate conversion.
The new cards supplement the existing eight channel analogue line input card, the eight channel analogue mic/line input card, eight channel analogue line output card and the dual 3G SDI embedder/de-embedder card. The AX32 also has a 64 channel interface for Avid Pro Tools and can optionally be fitted with a Dante AoIP interface.
NTP Technology business development manager Jan Lykke said: ”The addition of the new cards makes the AX32 one of the most versatile platforms for audio post production, whether for stereo, surround or 3D formats like Dolby Atmos.
“The AX32’s internal processing engine is now capable of providing PPM-style audio level information and level control for all 1,500 input and outputs, viewable in the DADman v5 software available for both Mac and PC.
“This new functionality is in addition to the 256×32 summing mixer which is used to provide NTP Technology DAD Pro Mon monitor control. We have also added a user-configurable zero-latency cue mixer, the DAD Cue Mix.”
