NAD Electronics Unveils New MDC Modules at ISE 2017

ISE 2017, AMSTERDAM, NL, FEBRUARY 6, 2017 – Introduced over a decade ago, NAD’s innovative Modular Design Construction (MDC) architecture was built on the premise that customers would want their NAD AV Receiver or Processor upgraded as new technologies evolved. With NAD’s continuing commitment to the MDC architecture, Custom Installers can provide their clients with the unique offering of renowned NAD amplification and the assurance that their investment will not become outdated.

Available immediately, NAD is pleased to offer two new MDC 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) video modules – the MDC VM300 (MSRP US$599; €659; £549) for the M17, T 187, T 787 and T 777 and the MDC VM130 (MSRP US$499; €549; £449) for the T 758. The MDC VM300 and MDC VM130 bring your clients the latest Ultra HD video including HDMI 2.0b, High Dynamic Range (HDR) with full 4K at 60fps, 4:4:4 colour resolution and HDCP 2.2. Using the very latest 4K video chipsets, each supports 60 frames per second (4K/60 @ 4/4/4) to fully support all current and future UHD formats.

In addition, both the VM300 and VM130 are BluOS Ready and can be enabled with the optional BluOS™ Upgrade Kit (MSRP US$199; €219; £179) to provide Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and BluOS high resolution streaming. BluOS is the operating system and music management software developed by NAD’s sister brand, Bluesound. Custom Installers can add up to 64 zones of BluOS Enabled High Res Audio music players to create an advanced high resolution audio multi-room system that can be controlled from a smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. BluOS is also designed to seamlessly integrate with Control4, Crestron SIMPL, RTI, Push, and URC professional home control systems.

About MDC
Change. Upgrade. Customize. MDC’s future-proof flexibility is an installer’s dream and makes obsolescence a thing of the past. When 4K UHD video and HDMI 2.0b hit the scene we were ready. We’ll be ready for the next AV technology change, too. Available on select NAD home theatre receivers, this simple upgrade solution features input circuitry on easily removable modules, so you can update and customize features and capabilities as they become available. NAD home theatre is ready now and on.

About BluOS
BluOS is a proprietary operating system shared by high-end audio brands Bluesound and NAD Electronics. Unlike other solutions that rely on 3rd party software like UPnP, BluOS is a dedicated ‘music only’ operating system that allows for interoperability among enabled devices and provides connectivity to numerous cloud and network music sources. BluOS fully supports High Resolution Audio, as well as all popular lossless and lossy codecs. It also features seamless integration with common smart home controllers like Control4, Crestron, and RTI, among others. BluOS-enabled devices can be controlled with a free app available for smartphones, tablets or desktops.
