NAD’s innovative Modular Design Construction (MDC)
architecture was built with the foresight that customers would want to upgrade
their NAD AV Receiver or Processor with both new technologies and additional
features. More than a decade later, it is this very same design that continues
to power some of NAD’s most revolutionary products. Combining the forces of
Ultra High Definition (UHD) and BluOS®, the VM 310 is a single module that
works in all NAD MDC AV products. Employing the latest UHD video chipsets and
HDMI 2.0b, the VM 310 supports 60 frames per second in order to fully sustain
all current and future UHD formats. The VM 310 also supports HDCP 2.2, which is
the copy encryption used for UHD video and is required to watch 4K contents.
Like past NAD MDC video modules, the VM 310 does not alter the video signal by
either adding or subtracting valuable information, thus leaving the frame rate
and color space unaltered from the input to the output. As a BluOS Ready
product, the VM 310 has the options of network music streaming, Wi-Fi and
Bluetooth, granting you access to the best audio possible.
NAD CLASSIC AV MDC UPGRADES
Modular Design Construction (MDC)
NAD’s innovative MDC architecture is a highly advanced concept,
allowing customers to upgrade their NAD AV Receiver or Processor with new
technology and additional features well into the future. NAD introduced
MDC in 2006 featuring the then advanced HDMI 1.2 digital transfer technology.
Subsequent upgrades to HDMI 1.3, HDMI 1.4 and now HDMI 2.0 have
kept NAD customers at the forefront of technology while
protecting their original investment.
VM 310 UHD (4K) Video Module for
T 187, T 777, T 787, T778 M15HD, M17
This upgrade incorporates two of the hottest and most
desirable new technologies into a single module that works in all
NAD MDC AV products. It not only provides Ultra High Definition
(UHD) video performance, but it also adds the option of network
music streaming, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, allowing up to 64 zones of
BluOS® compatible High Res Audio music players to be added
to create the most advanced multi-room system on the planet.
Using the very latest 4K video chipsets, the VM 310 supports
60 frames per second (4K/60 @ 4/4/4) to fully support all current and future
UHD formats. Many UHD AVR’s still use much slower video processing that limits
performance to 4K/60 @ 4/2/0. VM 310 also includes the latest HDCP 2.2 copy
protection necessary for accessing all commercial UHD video releases. Like
previous MDC video modules, NAD has chosen to take a ‘do no harm’ approach to
the video signal by neither adding nor subtracting precious information, thus
leaving the frame rate and color space unaltered from the input to the output.
Only the audio signal is extracted for processing and amplification by the
latest state-of-the-art High Resolution Audio circuitry. The VM 310 is more
flexible than ever, with AirPlay 2* built-in for easy integration into the
