November 18th – just one day before METSTRADE, the world’s largest international B2B trade exhibition for the marine leisure industry, nexgentec is proud to announce the official release of a new and greatly anticipated product: the SDM, or Software Defined Matrix.
Thanks to this small, but very important component, the first ever, truly unlimited audio over IP solution using DanteTM / AES67 technology is complete, allowing audio-visual integration on superyachts to take place on a whole new level.
nexgentec specializes in innovative audio technology for entertainment solutions for private superyachts and homes. The company manufactures unique devices that save a lot of space and energy on board, that make the install easier for integrators, and that provide end users with the best possible experience.
The SDM can be a physical network device of only half a rack unit high and half a rack unit wide, or it can it can run on a server as a virtual service.
Rico Voegeli, nexgentec CTO states: ‘As an engineering company that pioneered network-based audio solutions, we decided to create this product, designated by our partners as ‘a huge timesaver’. On the specs of new build projects, it is commonly stated ‘all sources in all zones’. With the SDM this is super easy. You can add as many sources and zones as you like during many refits to come, without needing a lot more space. It greatly simplifies the install of audio on board, but it was not available, until now.’
nexgentec exclusive marine distributor, Genesis Technologies Marine, is proud to have this brand new nexgentec device, as well as several key others on exhibition at METSTRADE in Amsterdam from the 19th until the 21st of November. They kindly invite you to visit their stand nr 11.719 at the SuperYacht Pavilion (SYP) to experience their innovative and complete audio over IP hard- and software, that can be the solid ‘backbone’ to the most refined and robust audio-visual entertainment systems on board any superyacht.
