Cambridge Audio NP30
Deal with Reciva, the digital technology firm, leads to decision to set up a dedicated technology hub in Cambridge

Cambridge Audio is setting up a dedicated technology hub in the city of its birth,  Cambridge.

The decision follows a deal with Reciva, the digital technology company that helped Cambridge create the UuVol digital music platform for its NP30 network music player (above) and related apps.

Cambridge Audio will acquire full rights to Reciva's client source code, and three of Reciva's development team have been transferred to the new technology hub.

They join Cambridge Audio's existing 30-strong research and development team, which already includes a core team of software and mobile app developers.

"Today, networked home entertainment is increasingly the way people access their music, TV, radio and more," says a Cambridge Audio spokesman.

"Underpinning this trend, we are now developing a range of digital music platforms which answer consumers' needs, however they rip, store or stream their music  collections."

We've just publsihed a full review of the Cambridge Audio NP30 network player in the August issue of What Hi-Fi? Sound and Vision, on sale now.
