NAD VM 300

Introduced in 2006, 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 300 is a single module that works in all NAD MDC AV products. Employing the latest UHD video chipsets and HDMI 2.0b, the VM 300 supports 60 frames per second in order to fully sustain all current and future UHD formats. The VM 300 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 300 does not alter the video signal by either adding or subtracting valuable information, thus leaving the frame rate and colour space unaltered from the input to the output. As a BluOS Ready product, the VM 300 has the options of network music streaming, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, granting you access to the best audio possible.

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 300 UHD (4K) Video Module for T 187, T 777, T 787, 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 300 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 300 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 colour 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.
