NTP IP Audio
The NTP IP Audio Technology is based on the robust tried-and-tested Dante™ digital audio network
technology, and will interoperate with products of other brands that comply with Dante. The protocol will provide AVB
support once standardization is fully completed. The Dante and NTP IP Audio formats provide fast, flexible, and
economical audio routing via IP and are compatible with NTP PENTA 720 Modular I/O, NTP PENTA 725 IP Audio router, and other Dante devices. The IP Audio routing provides Low latency, tightly synchronised, transport of uncompressed audio over Gigabit IP Ethernet Layer 3 networks using off the shelf switches, and routers for audio routing via one or more sub-nets. A total of 512 channels can be routed on a 1 Gigabit network, and more if the network capacity is higher.
The IP Audio routing is for larger systems controlled by the NTP RCCore Router Control System, for easy and simple setting of connections on the Gigabit IP Ethernet. PENTA 721 can also be controlled by the Dante IP Audio routing controller software.
