Copenhagen, Denmark (July 2, 2020)—NTP Technology has expanded its Penta audio interfacing platform has been expanded with three new models—the 721s, 721s-DNT and 721s-SDI—intended for use in Enterprise audio, including broadcast and AV Install, for situations where several different audio formats have to co-exist within the same system, or various systems need to be able to exchange audio streams.
The new Penta 721s models bridge audio formats and systems; the models are compact 1 RU solutions that each include AES, MADI and Dante I/O, yet each model is made with specific purposes in mind.
The Penta 721s-DNT is a Dante-to-Dante converter with onboard sample rate conversion on the input, allowing it to connect individual IP Audio networks that may run on different sample rates and digital clocks. All models already include Dante connectivity in the form of a 64-channel Brooklyn module, but the 721s-DNT model adds another 128 channels and onboard sample rate conversion to the table.
The Penta 721s-SDI adds Dual 3G SDI embedding / de-embedding to the package and is intended for broadcasters with the need for combining SDI signals with Dante, MADI or AES. The SDI side of the model also has built-in sample rate conversion.
Finally, the Penta 721s is a modular solution that comes with an empty expansion card slot where any of seven available expansion cards can be installed – for instance analog inputs or outputs, delay processing for lip-sync, 3G SDI, or additional AES, MADI or Dante connectivity.
The new models will be available worldwide in Q3 2020, with the 721s priced at $2,799; the 721s DNT at $4,320; and the 721s-SDI at $4,680.
