NTP Technology Offers Broadcast Audio Solutions


DEN: NTP Technology will highlight its scalable solutions for broadcast audio at IBC2019, stand 8.B52. 
The solutions revolve around the same core – the Penta 720 and Penta 721– and their highly scalable nature ensure they fit into post-production for broadcast as well as transmission chains.
There are 'gaps' when it comes to joining a wealth of different audio formats in a complex routing system. Key within broadcast systems is the SDI format and since the Penta 720 supports this, it can be configured to act as a dedicated SDI bridge, connecting to and converting between SDI-Dante, SDI-MADI and SDI-AES. 
Bridging between SDI and Dante is particularly interesting with many broadcasters moving toward IP audio solutions. Key features and benefits in this context include embedding/de-embedding Dante audio in up to 16 SDI signals, direct audio exchange between SDI-signals, support for 3G, HD and SD-SDI, optional audio delay up to 128 seconds, silence detection and PPM on all inputs and outputs, and router control (e.g. ProBel control protocol).
The 1 rack-unit Penta 721 offers the same flexibility as the Penta 720, but without the option to install additional I/O cards. It is highly portable and transporting it to different locations at a broadcast facility – and perhaps to plug directly into an AoIP network – would work seamlessly.
The Penta 720 and Penta 721 units, along with dedicated control panels, can be coupled to create facility-wide solutions.
