NTP Technology has extended its range of broadcast-quality audio routing and control systems with the release of the Penta 725 IP audio router

NTP Penta 725The unit enables audio routing over IP-based Gigabit Ethernet with linear PCM audio quality and sub-millisecond latency. It is based on Audinate’s Dante technology, and will interoperate with with Dante networking support. The Penta 725IP supports a capacity up to 1024 x 1024 cross points with 64 bi-directional channels over IP, 64 AES3 I/O channels and six optical Madi or router connection interfaces housed in a 1U-high 19-inch chassis.

‘Internet bandwidth is increasing in many countries, giving broadcasters the option of using far more cost-efficient IP-based networking in place of traditional leased telco lines,’ says NTP Technology Sales Director, Mikael Vest. ‘The Penta 725 IP combines standard time-division multiplex routing with the ability to interface audio via Gigabit Ethernet. Choosing Audinate’s Dante was an easy decision for us. First of all, Dante is the most advanced digital media networking solution in the world today and secondly, using Layer 3 will enable broadcasters to route traffic from one city to another city as one crosspoint, to form a true IP media network’

‘The engineers at NTP didn’t waste any time developing the Dante version of the Penta 725 router,’ says Umberto Zanghieri of Audinate EMEA distributor and engineering partner, ZP Engineering. ‘I was extremely impressed by their speed from idea to development and to the actual product. Their design team is very efficient and capable.’
