Designed for the Future – MDC Technology
How can a product designer account for future demands or technological breakthroughs which have yet to make themselves known? How can one expect the unexpected? Creating a device that will withstand the test of time requires a bit of creative thinking. In 2007, NAD introduced a feature to their A/V receivers which offered a solution for what the future would hold. Modular Design Construction (MDC), took a page from the computer world and applied it to consumer electronics. The T765, T775 and T785 receivers were designed with what looked like expansion slots on a PC. Under the hood, these receivers were endowed with a substantial amount of processing power and a vast array of signal pathways. The screen market is driven by new technologies such as increased resolutions, color gamuts, refresh rates and dynamic range – so connectivity on connected devices must keep up. The audio side usually follows suit with new immersive audio formats that also require more bandwidth. NAD created MDC to address these innovations beginning with their AVRs and stereo amplifiers. Simple in concept, but extremely complex in its execution, MDC has given NAD a substantial advantage in the race to adapt to the next big thing.
Built to Last
Amplifier technology tends to change more slowly than that of its connected devices. At the heart of NAD’s design philosophy is building affordable, high-quality amplifiers which are built to last a long time. Modular design construction provides an economical way for dealers to support their end users with simple to perform updates. At its core, MDC brings latitude to add features that are off the horizon of current technological trends. When Dolby Atmos and 4K video entered the world of media resolutions, MDC was able to upgrade NAD receivers nearly 12 years old with the capacity to process the new formats. Since nobody foresaw Dolby Atmos entering the market 12 years ago, the adaptability of this unit became its greatest strength. Be it an integrated amplifier or receiver, NAD’s units, equipped with robust processing power and paired with the flexibility of MDC, are built to adapt to what comes next.
