Introduced over a decade ago, NAD’s 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provide their clients with the offering of NAD amplification and the assurance that their investment will not become outdated. 

Available immediately, NAD is offering two new MDC 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) video modules: the MDC VM300 (MSRP $599) for the M17, T 187, T 787, and T 777, and the MDC VM130 (MSRP $499) for the T 758. 

The MDC VM300 and MDC VM130 are compatible with Ultra HD video including HDMI 2.0b, High Dynamic Range (HDR) with full 4K at 60Hz, 4:4:4 color resolution, and HDCP 2.2. Using the very latest 4K video chipsets, each supports 4K/60 at 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 $199) to provide Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and BluOS high-resolution streaming. Custom installers can add up to 64 zones of BluOS-enabled High-Res audio music players to create an advanced high-resolution audio multiroom system that can be controlled from a smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. BluOS is also designed to integrate with Control4, Crestron SIMPL, RTI, Push, and URC professional home control systems.
