DirectOut adds to line-up with PRODIGY.MP processor

Posted on: Sunday 10th of February 2019

DirectOut’s new PRODIGY.MP multifunction audio processor follows the successful launch of its sister product, the PRODIGY.MC – a revolutionary modular audio converter that spearheaded the recent introduction of the PRODIGY Series.

“All the ingredients were already there,” explains DirectOut Business Development Manager, Luca Giaroli. “For more than a decade, we’ve been offering unrivaled highly reliable audio format converters with the highest quality sample-rate conversion and redundant backup technologies available. We felt it was the right time to take a quantum step forward and add innovative processing power to the package. The result is a device designed to be the central hub of any audio system.”

PRODIGY.MP is a multifunction audio processor that shares its 2U-high compact mainframe and modular design with the PRODIGY.MC, but adds FPGA-based DSP for EQ, delays and summing matrices. This powerful addition also offers greater flexibility in heterogenous systems and independent clocking by adding SRC capabilities.

The unit has four converter slots for analog line-level, microphone input and AES3 option modules, providing up to 32 local inputs and outputs. The hardware also supports two MADI and two Network Audio options. The MADI slots are available as BNC, SC optical and SFP modules, while two optional Network Audio boards can be equipped with Dante, RAVENNA (AES67) or SoundGrid, increasing maximum channel capability to 416 inputs/420 outputs.

Both PRODIGY.MP and MC can be controlled locally via a 5-inch touchscreen on the front panel, or via globcon, a unified remote-control platform that allows all DirectOut devices to be managed simultaneously. In addition, PRODIGY.MP can be accessed via its integrated web server, with remote access via HTML and JavaScript-based user interface.

Third-party remote-control protocols may also be added for increased system integration and signal management capabilities.

“Flexibility and reliability are two of the main characteristics needed to make a device successful,” states Claudio Becker-Foss, CTO of DirectOut. “PRODIGY.MP offers both, allowing it to accept and manage different audio formats and clock domains simultaneously, while enabling users to plan and configure their own clock redundancy strategy. globcon  provides quick and efficient system management when PRODIGY.MP is used as the core of a complex audio system – alongside other products from a multitude of well-known manufacturers.”

“The audio industry, with its complex and diverse technology demands, is rapidly evolving,” adds Giaroli. “But with the modularity of the PRODIGY family, and with globcon quickly adapting and evolving, DirectOut is ready and very well equipped to meet these challenges.”
