8-48 Channel AD/DA Converter & Digital Audio Matrix

AX32 is your audio routing centerpiece, digital format converter, world-class AD/DA converter and monitor controller. Quite simply, AX32 changes seamlessly between workflows in seconds, optimizing your production time and efficiency.

With the AX32you get pristine AD and DA conversion with superb sonic quality, versatile I/O structure and IP Audio via Layer 3 Ethernet (Dante) that follows the track of the AX24 with an enhanced performance in terms the sonic quality of the AD andDA conversion, up-to 48 analogue audio channels and a flexible digital signalinterface, routing and distribution structure.

With all I/O card and options installed, you can control a 1,500 x 1,500 matrix of audiochannels. 8 I/O cards and 2 I/O modules can be installed. Just imagine the flexibility and swift change between workflows you would have right at yourfingertips.

All operation and functional control is managed via the DADman control software.

Expandability Galore: DAD I/O Card Options

We have the following I/O expansion cards to choose from when you consider what to add to the two expansion slots of your AX Center:

  • 8 Channel Balanced Line A/D In
  • 8 Channel Balanced Line & Mic Preamp A/D In
  • 8 Channel Balanced Line D/A Out
  • Dante w built-in SRC (128 Channels)
  • 8 Channel AES
  • Dual MADI (128 Channels)
  • Dual SDI embedder/de-embedder

Further, you can also add 2 x 64 channels of MADI to the base unit as SFP modules.

  • SFP/LC – Opt module multi mode 1300 nm low output LED / 647-110
  • SFP/LC – Opt module single/multi mode 1300 nm, laser / 647-200
  • SFP – Coax MADI tranceiver w. HD/mini-BNC / 647-400

This does not occupy any of the two available expansion card slots.

The expansion cards for the AX Center, AX32, AX64 and NTP Penta 720 and 721s are fully inter-changeable between the products.

However, future cards developed for the AX Center and AX64 will not be backwards compatible.

DADman Control

The Thunder|Core Audio interface is controlled via the DADman software. DADman can connect to the Thunder|Core interface either via Ethernet or via a communication channel in the Thunderbolt connection.

More units can be daisy chained via the Thunderbolt ports, and each  unit will appear in DADman control software.

Using control over Ethernet the two RJ45 connectors acts as a switch for connection to  more units. The Dante /AES67 audio is also passed on the two  RJ45 connectors.
