    PENTA-721S - Overview

    The NTP PENTA 721s is a new generation audio router and audio distribution interface from NTP Technology, which provides a versatile and flexible interface for signal distribution of analog, and digital audio via AES/EBU and MADI, as well as routing via IP Gigabit Ethernet and optical fibre networks including Dante. It has all the features of the Penta 721 with the addition of a card slot that can accept one of the 7 Penta interface cards to exactly match your I/O requirements.

    PENTA 721s is a compact 1U digital audio interface designed for stand-alone use in recording studios, radio stations and stage venues.

    Signal Routing
    PENTA 721s include a 512+512 multiplexer,enabling all analog and digital inputs and outputs to be routed in any combination; this enables the unit to also split signals for advanced signal distribution. The multiplexer can be used to establish the static connections of the signal inputs and outputs, and furthermore it incorporates soft switching with a fade down and fade up functionality of the signal level. Soft switching ensures that setting or changing a signal path can be made without any audible click or artefact.

    PENTA 721s are TCP/IP controlled via one or two Ethernet ports. Control and supervision can be made by the NTP RCCore control system, and the operation is done via the NTP VMC control software client applications. A simple dedicated software control application for Windows is available for controlling and setting up PENTA 721s on a unit to unit basis when less advanced operation is required.

    The IP Audio routing is for larger systems controlled by the NTP RCCore Router Control System, for easy and simple setting of connections on the Gigabit IP Ethernet. PENTA 721s can also be controlled by the Dante IP Audio routing controller software.

    IP Audio Powered by Dante
    The PENTA 721s IP Audio protocol is based on the robust tried-and-tested Dante™ digital audio network technology, and will interoperate with products of other brands that comply with Dante.
