Penta 721s Modular Audio Interface

Modular Audio Router / Interface with 1 Expansion Slot

Penta 721s is a modular MADI, AES and DANTE router with one slot for an optional expansion card, which provides a versatile and flexible solution for signal distribution and audio routing via AES/EBU, MADI, as well as routing via IP Gigabit Ethernet and optical fibre networks. The expansion slot can be installed with any of the available Penta expansion cards.

Penta 721s is a compact 1U digital audio interface that comes with eight AES/EBU input/output channels, MADI, Dante IP Audio Ethernet ins/outs and Pro|Mon as standard, as well as an optional mini-module slot with dual SFP MADI optical in/out connection.

With Penta 721s you can route to and from any of the digital interfaces on the unit. Further, one optional Penta expansion card can be installed in the unit to hold additional Dante, MADI or AES connections. It can also add Analog inputs or outputs., SDI or Delay processing to the package.


- 64 Dante IP audio I/O channels
- Support for AES67 with SAP
- Routing of single channels
- 8 AES/EBU I/O and 1 BNC MADI I/O
- Optional Mini module with 2 MADI I/O via SFP
- Pro|Mon monitor control functionality
- IP audio L3 Ethernet I/O powered by Dante
- TCP/IP control via DADman software, Penta 615 control panels panels or the NTP RCCore control system
- One slot for Penta expansion cards 8 AES/EBU I/O and 1-3 MADI I/O

Key Benefits

- Flexible patching and routing of digital and analogue audio signals providing
- Stand alone IP audio interface and format converter
- Low latency, tightly synchronised, transport of uncompressed audio over IP networks using off the shelf switches
- Compact solution with redundant power supply
- Interface for NTP TDM router systems

Penta 721s can be installed with one of the Penta expansion cards. Included in the configurations is always 64 ch. Dante I/O, 8 AES/EBU I/O, MADI I/O, AES11 sync input, Word Clock I/O and Dual Power supply.

Signal Routing
Penta 721s includes a 512x512 multiplexer, enabling all Dante audio 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. A 256x32 channel summing mixer is also available as a part of the matrix.

Penta 721s is controlled via one or two Ethernet ports and the operation is done by using the DADman control software application or a Penta 615 Control panel. In larger router systems control can be made via the NTP RCCore Router control application.
