NTP Technology delivered 32 digital audio routing systems to China Radio International.

CRI has 30 overseas bureaus and is one of three state-owned media in the People’s Republic of China. NTP is part of the Dan Technologies group.

“This latest order includes two NTP Penta 625 MADI and 30 Penta 725 systems which will be installed at CRI’s Beijing headquarters,” the company announced. “The purchase was negotiated by NTP’s China reseller, Beijing Infomedia Digital Technology.”

NTP quoted Wang Juntao, CRI’s program director, saying, "One of the Penta 625 MADI routers together with eight of the Penta 725 routers will be configured as the main core system. The second 625 and a further eight 725 routers will form a secondary or redundant core. Both these systems will be located in a machine room close to the master control room. Our headquarters building has 15 floors, each with four studios. A Penta 725 will be located on each of the other 14 floors, serving as an input and output node.”

The new routers will replace an existing NTP 625-100D 128-square audio matrix.

The NTP 625 MADI router consists of a 2,048 x 2,048 crosspoint MADI router. The Penta 725 is a compact modular audio router accommodating up to 384 x 384 crosspoints.
