NTP to show Penta 725 router and RCCoreV3 software at AES Convention in London
"The Penta 725 is a new-generation compact modular audio router designed for sound recording studios, post-production facilities and mobile production vehicles, as well as television and radio broadcasting," explains Sales Director Mikael Vest. "Its compactness will be particularly appreciated by system integrators seeking to achieve maximum space-efficiency."
Accommodating up to 384 x 384 crosspoints in a compact 1 U 19 inch chassis, the Penta 725 has 64 AES3 stereo and four MADI inputs/outputs which can be accessed for interfacing digital audio sources. Controllable via TCP/IP or front-panel navigation keys, the Penta 725 can house a variety of software modules. Two high-speed bi-directional links are included for connection to NTP 625 or additional Penta 725 systems. An AES3 monitor output is provided for input and output monitoring.
NTP's RCCore software allows configuration, control and supervision of all router modules in an NTP audio signal distribution system. RCCoreV3 can be used as a stand-alone controller within the NTP 635-300 router or run from standard PC hardware. It provides highly efficient control of the router's dual-backbone interface and supports the double-LAN interface on 625-800 frames. RCCoreV3 also forms a communication interface to the NTP VMC and BLISS control options and to third-party communication protocols. Features include remote access and log-in at expert-user level for system set-up, maintenance and database management. Secure access is possible via Virtual Private Network. A retro-compatible plug-and-play database can be held on the active controller and on standby controllers.
The NTP Penta 725 compact modular audio router and RCCoreV3 control application are available now.
