BVE 2017: NTP announces DAD DX32R

NTP Technology used the BVE show last week as the global launch for its new DAD DX32R Digital Audio Bridge.

The DX32R provides conversion between Dante/AES67 and not only MADI but also AES. It includes a coax MADI interface and eight AES3 interfaces, and can be expanded with a further two MADI interfaces, either optical or coax. A built-in router allows the user to pick and choose any channels from any interface to be routed to Dante/AES67 and vice versa.

Apart from providing routing of audio channels, the DX32R with an optional Pro Mon 2 license can also perform summing/mixing of channels. Designed for mission-critical applications, the DX32R includes as standard a redundant Dante interface and redundant power supplies plus two optional MADI interfaces, which can also operate in redundant mode.

In addition, NTP Technology, which co-exhibited with HHB Communications this year, showcased an AES67 interoperability demo on the HHB Stand, demonstrating how a Dante-based AoIP system can talk to AES67 devices. The workflow comprised DAD AX32 and Penta 720 boxed and Genelec AES67 speakers.

Martin O’Donnell, Director of Sales at HHB Communications, said: “We’re delighted that NTP Technology is co-exhibiting with us a BVE 2017 and chosen the show as the global launch pad for the DAD DX34R Digital Audio Bridge.”
