(Copenhagen, Denmark--September 4, 2014) NTP Technology announces that EUCON 3.1 control for the DAD AX32 AD/DA converter will be formally introduced at IBC 2014, Amsterdam, September 12-16. Exhibiting in Hall 8 on stand B52, NTP Technology will be represented by Mikael Vest, Jan Lykke, Kim Vangsgaard and Jeppe Sørensen.
The Digital Audio Denmark AX32 AD/DA high end converter and DX32 digital audio bridge will be shown together with new DADman version 4.2 control software for Windows and OSX.
"The DADman version 4.2 control software we are introducing at IBC will incorporate automation via the Avid EUCON protocol which allows easy control of the microphone preamplifier channel strip from Avid S6 and Artist control surfaces," says NTP Technology Sales Director Mikael Vest. "The AX32's microphone gain, channel mute and phase inversion can all now be controlled directly from Avid's user interface. This will be greatly appreciated by sound engineers who typically operate the AX32 from the control surface in their studio control room. The software interfaces via the EUCON high-speed Ethernet protocol which enables a hardware control surface to communicate directly with our application."
The AX32 comes as standard with interface for Avid Pro Tools and eight AES/EBU and MADI inputs and outputs. It can optionally be fitted with a Dante IP audio interface and two optical MADI interfaces, making it an extremely versatile platform.
Housed in a compact 2U chassis, the AX32 is designed for use in no-compromise audio recording and mixing as well as post-production. It allows large multi-microphone arrays to be accommodated without the need to transport a second processor. Up to 48 microphone feeds can be connected back to the control room along a single Cat 5 cable via fully transparent and uncompressed IP Ethernet. The optional microphone preamplifier provides up to 72 decibels of analogue gain, 123 dB dynamic range and an equivalent noise floor of -133 dB.
