The NEUTRON-NB Network Bridge expansion module compatible with the MIDAS NEUTRON audio system engine provides a multichannel interface between two third party digital audio networks and point-to-point interfaces. The third party interfaces operate in separate clock domains and are connected by a bidirectional asynchronous sample rate converter (ASRC). This unique KLARK TEKNIK technology allows the interfacing of up to 64 bidirectional channels between the two independently clocked domains, which can also operate at different sample rates.
Compatible with the KLARK TEKNIK KT-AES50, KT-DANTE64, KT-MADI and KT-USB network modules, NEUTRON-NB is future-proofed in the evolving world of digital audio networking technology by being able to support new and emerging protocols via its two industry-standard expansion slots, which are compatible with the Cirrus CM-1* format.
Asynchronous Sample Rate Converter
The multichannel bidirectional Asynchronous Sample Rate Converter (ASRC) allows the two third party domains to function independently. This means that a clock failure or loss of synchronisation in one domain will not affect the operation of the other.
In addition the two third party modules are clocked independently of the main Neutron-NB Module, again preventing a loss of synchronisation in the module affecting the main units operation.
Furthermore, the modules will mute the audio streams when a loss of synchronisation is detected.
Digital Audio Networking
SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) digital audio networking technology from KLARK TEKNIK simultaneously provides high channel counts, ultra low and deterministic latencies, sample-synchronous and phase-aligned networked clock distribution, error detection and correction, network redundancy, and ease of deployment and use – to meet the demanding requirements of live concert touring.
10 Port AES50 interface
NEUTRON-NB features an 10 port AES50 interface to provide an additional 240 bidirectional channels at 96 kHz sample rate. These AES50 ports can be freely routed to provide further network expansion for the NEUTRON audio system engine. Neutrik etherCON* AES50 connectors are used to ensure reliable connections, night after night.
