News Image

NTP Technology is to introduce an upgraded version of its Penta 720 audio router and modular interface converter at IBC2015.

New features include expanded routing capability (increased from 1,024 x 1,024 to 1,500 x 1,500), plus signal detection, signal level monitoring, peak programme meters and signal level control on all inputs and outputs.

Two new plug-in cards for the Penta 720 will also be introduced at the show. These comprise an eight-channel line level AES3 (AES/EBU) input/output interface, with optional sampling rate conversion, as well as a dual MADI input/output. Support for a full 64 channel analogue input/output configuration will be demonstrated.

The range of control options for the Penta 720 have also been increased and can now be operated via Pro-Bel SW-P and Avid (R) EUCON protocols.

Designed for use in television or radio studios, outside broadcast vehicles and public-event venues, the Penta 720 incorporates a range of inputs and outputs to match the various signal distribution protocols currently in use. Standard features include eight AES3 input/output channels, MADI, redundant Dante IP Audio Ethernet in/outs and an interface for Avid Pro Tools (TM).

Up to eight optional cards can be incorporated to match specific operational requirements. All cards are hot-swappable. A mini-module slot is available to accommodate a dual SFP MADI optical input/output module. This module is also compliant with the NTP HotLink/Dual MADI format. A dual redundant power supply is available.

Existing plug-in cards for the Penta 720 include an eight-input line-level analogue to digital converter with optional microphone preamplifier; eight output digital to analog converter; and a 3 gigabit/s SDI embedder/de-embedder.
