’’When asked by an existing client to upgrade an entertainment system in a holiday villa on a remote tropical Island, his stipulations were that whatever AV components we specified had to meet the demands of his well-heeled hi-fi speakers and matching amps as well as offer reliability and durability in a warm tropical sea air environment.

nexgentec’s utility in previous marine projects immediately came to mind. I knew the client had plenty of end-user experience, owning some of the world’s most expensive hi-fi products, so he was naturally sceptical of how capable his first Dante audio over IP based system would be. The clients well trained ear would certainly be a great test of this product.

We were able to offer a greatly reduced form factor from his original 35Kg , 5 rack units audio processor to a 1u NGTC-1280NX audio DSP, offering extremely small power consumption. On top of that we provided the client with an exact software emulation via Dante of the high-end hardware crossovers in the original system. Furthermore, using the NGTC-MCP4KJR, we were able to assure him that he could realise the full lossless streaming quality from his favourite music streaming service  and that his spouse could enjoy the best in Dolby cinema from movie streaming  services when switching the system to cinema mode.

The client’s scepticism was allayed the moment he heard the sound quality on his favourite reference audio track – several hours later he has reported his total satisfaction on the audio quality. From my team’s perspective, the unyielding remote support from nexgentec to a very isolated location really helped this project come to a successful conclusion.
Great Product!’’

’’I have had the pleasure to have used nexgentec products on the past few vessels I have worked on and everything I have used so far has been great. I honestly haven’t been able to find a fault with any of the products nexgentec produce. To put it simply – It just works!”

Stefan Nyman – AVIT officer on a 95 m Feadship

’’nexgentec is renowned for its innovation in audio over IP solutions, focusing on the high-end marine and residential sectors. Their equipment stands out for its compact size, superior digital sound quality, and energy efficiency. With proprietary software, nexgentec allows for easy control and customization of audio systems, removing traditional limitations and enabling seamless audio distribution across different zones. This approach not only simplifies management and maintenance, but also enhances the overall user experience. nexgentec’s commitment to innovation and quality makes it a leader in AoIP technology, providing scalable and flexible solutions that meet the demands of today’s integrators and end-users.’’

‘’The nexgentec audio solution has been a game changer for our marine systems. We no longer have to be concerned with managing Dante IO channel counts and we get a powerful DSP solution that covers everything from Dolby Atmos cinemas to 7.1 surround areas to simple stereo zones. The nexgentec system gives us ultimate flexibility to route sources wherever we like and always perfectly in sync when we link zones together. We can easily deploy movable sound fields to accommodate for rotating or multiple displays. My team are responsible for programming the Crestron control and commissioning the AV systems, which is made so easy by nexgentec. The nexgentec system is by far the easiest and most responsive audio system I have integrated with. nexgentec are always our preferred choice for distributed audio systems.’’

Bruce Bartlett


“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with nexgentec on several projects. Whenever high-end audio distribution is in play, it’s almost a given that nexgentec is behind it. As Crestron Service Providers, ensuring seamless control is our responsibility. In doing so, the support from nexgentec has been consistently impeccable. On the rare occasion when a problem arises, it’s not uncommon for Rico Vögeli, the CEO himself, to personally step in and ensure that the customer gets what they expect. Therefore, the installations we do together are consistently successful, and I can’t wait to do more.”

Niko Brasseur


“The suite of products offered by nexgentec makes the planning and implementation of a reliable, high-performance digital audio distribution system plain sailing. This is supported by a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic team who will assist with the design and configuration of a system from initial concept right through to commissioning and final handover. The products and services provided by nexgentec give me the confidence as a specifier to know they will deliver a first-class solution.”

Mike Gibbons


‘’The agreed AV/IT & Security specification had to undergo a complete redesign due to space restrictions on the vessel. With the introduction of nexgentec, not only did the system performance increase, but we were also able to install the equipment in the space available due to the small form factor and energy saving specifications of the equipment. We were able to deliver the channel count required with half the rack space needed from other amplifier manufactures. The reduction in BTU output and weight provided a reduction in running costs and meant that the chillers for the air-conditioned racks could perform at the required level without condensation build-up. The overall flexibility of the nexgentec hardware and software, combined with the knowledge and customer support is outstanding. We can’t speak highly enough about them.’’

‘‘IT’s all about mood! In the marine world, control of the on-board audio-video systems is a must. By using network products and Dante/AES67 protocols, or, Audio over ethernet, control becomes easy. The IT-network infrastructure, wired and/or wireless, ensures a new way of designing and installing audio and video systems. Nowadays the audio and video products that are being used on-board, in the IT network, have reached the level where they can meet the high IT standards. With the high-quality audio and video products, we can save energy, because of their internal cost-saving architecture, their size, and weight. The proven quality of the nexgentec en Crestron NVX products contributes to a high-quality performance, that ensures delivering the right mood for the end-user.’’

Danny Schouten


’’Our clients expect a flawlessly working system 24/7, as well as the flexibility to make any changes without disrupting a complete infrastructure. With the nexgentec, Dante based, system we have all the right tools to deliver this. From the initial brainstorming to the final commissioning the whole company is highly involved and flexible. Thanks to nexgentec, we have the flexibility and stability to live up to any of our clients’ expectations.’’

Niek Ansems & Wilco Drijver


’’To meet the current flexibility requirements in audio and video distribution, we use the AVOIP network, consisting of the Dante audio solutions from nexgentec and Crestron NVX video distribution, in our new build and refit projects. This simplifies the design of the total AV distribution as well as any future adaptations, expansion, or replacement. And there is no need to replace cabling within the AV infrastructure, which entails extra time and costs. The high quality, reliability and comfort in operation are highly appreciated by the end user. Better monitoring of AV, both locally and remotely, also provides a quick solution for maintenance. Due to the close cooperation with nexgentec, every project is successfully delivered from start to finish!’’

Erwin Roelandschap


‘’Moving to the AV-over-IP solution for our projects, we wanted to have a stable solution which adds Dante audio to our Crestron DM-NVX solution. After consideration of the available products on the market we found the nexgentec solution to be the most flexible way for our current and future projects. With the constant improvements and the ongoing development of new, additional products, it is a futureproof solution.’’

Jacco Troost


‘’All system backbones are based on a network architecture today. Every engineer needs a good understanding of network topologies and that is where we put a lot of effort into training. For entertainment, a lot of boats are now changing their Full-HD video systems and analog audio distributions to fully networked solutions. We usually base our entertainment infrastructures on a Crestron NVX video distribution and a DANTE audio distribution based on the nexgentec SDM (software defined matrix). Instead of having long signal chains, we create Point-to-Point IP based connections that are much faster, reliable and of a higher quality. The owner will instantly recognise the improvement after the refit.’’
