PRODIGY.MP is a multifunction audio processor that is designed to address numerous applications in pro audio, broadcast, installation and studio applications. PRODIGY.MP provides flexible I/O, dual networked audio, DSP (EQ, Delay, Limiter, Matrix/Mixing, Inserts…), Sample Rate Conversion, multiple sync generation/handling/distribution and powerful hard- and software.

PRODIGY.MP Demo Video

Housed in a 2U rack frame, it supports networking selectable from Dante, RAVENNA and SoundGrid, while remote options allow access to hardware settings, DSP, SRC, network and a channel-based routing matrix. Fully modular, the hardware can be configured to specific requirements, giving budget savings as well as the flexibility to address changes in the global media environment through future upgrades.

Modular Approach, Maximum Flexibility

I/O includes four local slots for analog line-level/mic input and AES3 modules. With eight channels per module and interface direction, PRODIGY.MP provides up to 32 local inputs and outputs.

The hardware additionally supports two MADI and two network audio options. MADI slots can be equipped with BNC, SC optical and SFP modules, while network audio boards add Dante, RAVENNA/AES67 or SoundGrid, and increase channel capacity to 416 inputs/420 outputs.

DSP, SR & Sync management

With FPGA-based processing, user-definable processing paths and pick-off points, analog and digital inserts, outputs and summing matrices, PRODIGY.MP boasts very low latency DSP for EQ (FIR and IIR filters), Time Adjust/Delays and Limiters. The internal DSP reference can be set to Word Clock or Video input, any network/digital input, or internally generated clock. Sample Rate Converters on AES inputs and free-running MADI and network I/Os are available, allowing simultaneous Media/Format/Sample Rate and Sync conversion, DSP and full routing at up to 192 kHz.

Control Is Key, Multiple Access Locally & Remotely

globcon remote control, a browser-based GUI, and a backlight front panel IPS touch display ensure ultimate usability. Where globcon software offers integrated control of multiple pieces of equipment in Mac/PC/Linux-based systems, an integrated web server supports remote access via HTML and JavaScript-based user interfaces.

The browser-based GUI allows immediate remote access without the need to install software. The management network port is independent of the audio network, and can employ a built-in switch for in-band management of the device.

Third-party remote control protocols can extend system integration further. Automated surveillance and red light control is possible through GPIOs, while standard MIDI input and outputs give communication and active/passive control via MIDI. USB ports on the front and rear panels for connection and control of legacy devices.

Networked Audio & Seamless Interoperability

PRODIGY.MP’s network audio modules accommodate audio formats including DirectOut’s AES67-compliant RAVENNA stack that supports SMPTE ST2110-30/31 and ST2022-7 for redundant streaming. With the 64-channel Dante option, the hardware can be a front-end for audio consoles, or a standalone converter, DSP, SRC and routing system.

Waves Audio’s SoundGrid offers extremely low latency, and 128 channels of audio processing for live sound, studio and broadcast. Waves servers can be connected via SoundGrid for plug-in inserts. Virtual soundcards for macOS and Windows can directly interface with any DAW for multitrack recording and virtual soundchecking.

Secure Operation, Monitoring

Two front panel headphone outputs provide monitoring of any I/O at the device. Two phase-redundant power supplies with separate IEC inlets and AC power switches support hardware redundancy. An internal switch on the network module also ensures redundancy for the network domain. While the Dante module supports Dante redundancy, the RAVENNA module offers stream redundancy in accordance with ST2022-7. EARS (Enhanced Automatic Redundancy Switching) is available for several combinations of inputs.
