Interest In Immersive Audio Increases For NTP Technology

News Image
NTP Technology has experienced an increased demand for its audio products in the music recording, film sound, and broadcast post-production markets.

The growth is said to be in relation to the surging interest in immersive audio formats, designed to recreate high levels of acoustic realism for film theatres and domestic listening rooms.

At NAB Show 2017 recently, NTP Technology demonstrated its DAD AX32 analogue-to-digital and digital-to-analogue audio converter, DAD DX32R digital audio bridge and Penta 720 router. Designed for high quality music recording, audio post-production and live applications, the DAD AX32 offers up to 48 channels of A/D and D/A conversion. It can be configured with a range of options comprising microphone pre-amplifiers, MADI, AES and SDI embedders/de-embedders, Dante/AES67 connectivity, a 1500 x 1500 audio router and the Pro Mon 2 monitor controller.

The latest version of the DAD DX32R digital audio bridge incorporates Dante/AES67 to MADI and AES/EBU conversion. With an optional Pro Mon 2 license, the DX32R can now perform channel summing/mixing. The DX32R comes with a redundant Dante interface and redundant power supplies plus two optional MADI interfaces which also operate in redundant mode.

The MOM (Monitor Operating Module) meanwhile is a control unit for Pro Mon 2 allowing various adjustments for studio control room level, cut, mute, talkback and speaker reference level. Source and speaker select buttons can be configured to any Pro Mon 2 input source and speaker or monitor output.

Mikael Vest, Sales Director, NTP Technology, said: "Latest-generation immersive audio adds hugely to the impact film producers can deliver to cinema audiences. Object-based surround processing allows very precise three-dimensional control of vertical as well lateral sound positioning. The surround effects now possible carry the cinema experience to an entirely new level and the industry is already gearing to bring that into the home viewing environment. We see this as the foundation for a global renaissance across the entire electronic media business as cinemagoers, television viewers and music-lovers embrace these great new developments in audio reproduction."
