DirectOut’s PRODIGY.MP multifunction audio processor ensures maximum flexibility in both hardware and software. It combines the modular design of the PRODIGY Series with powerful FPGA-based DSP and SRC capabilities.
The 2U-high compact mainframe can simultaneously host up to two Network Audio Modules supporting different network formats and allowing seamless interoperability between them. For example, direct channel-by-channel connections between a Dante and a RAVENNA network are possible through PRODIGY.MP. The two networks, along with all other supported digital audio sources, can exchange audio even when running at different clock rates thanks to the SRC functionality of the device.
The two MADI slots of the PRODIGY.MP are configurable with BNC, SC and SFP, and the two Network Audio Slots can host SoundGrid, Dante and RAVENNA modules. The newly designed RAVENNA module complies with AES67, ST 2110-30/31, and supports all ST 2022-7 classes.
Four 8-channel converter slots complete the audio I/Os with analogue line-level, microphone and AES3 module options. A 5-inch touchscreen allows monitoring and control of the device.
The PRODIGY Series can also be managed via globcon, a unified remote-control platform for all DirectOut devices, or via an integrated web server. A JSON-API allows third-party remote control; support for further protocols will be added in future for increased system integration.
PRODIGY Series is being demonstrated at the IBC Show on Stand 8.E85.
