New Digital Audio Bridge provides conversion between Dante/AES67 and not only MADI but also AES.

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.”
