The Penta 615 Remote Control Panels are designed for remote control of the Penta 720/721s, DAD (Digital Audio Denmark) AX32 and DAD DX32R either through a direct connection or in combination with the 635 Router Controller.
Direct Control Mode
The Penta 615 Control Panel will communicate directly with the Penta 720 Audio Router via Direct Control Mode (DCM), i.e. there is no need for any further devices or software.
The DCM mode is ideal for small and simple router solutions based on manual control. This can be for example be router solutions where only occasional routing is required or for confidence monitoring solutions.
Each key is programmed for a certain function such as source select, output select or crosspoint select.
The Penta 615 Control Panels can be used in a wide variety of applications. In this example, a Penta 615-610A Control Panels is added to a Penta 720.
The Penta 720 is configured as a Dante to SDI Embedder/de-embedder with a delay insertion card to provide lipsync in case the video is delayed.
In order to monitor incoming feeds, whether that is from Dante or SDI embedded audio, a pair of AES speakers are connected to the built-in AES outputs on the Penta 720.
The following functions are supported:
Route input channel(s) to output channel(s)
Digital gain control on outputs, e.g. for volume control
Analogue input control, mic pre gain, phantom power, mic/line switching
