DirectOut has announced the introduction of the Audio Solution Model (ASM), a new platform offering modularity in both hardware and software, and is designed to evolve with customer needs in using a five-layer structure built on quality hardware platforms.
“While ‘DirectOut Technologies’ initially referred primarily to hardware, it has now evolved into a much broader, multi-dimensional, multi-layered concept that focuses entirely on the application: the Audio Solutions. We are no longer just a hardware company; we are a solution provider and proud to be at the forefront of the audio technology industry,” says Claudio Becker-Foss, CEO and CTO of DirectOut.
The ‘Skin’ layer, for instance, customizes the device performance, giving users the tools they need. Control protocols and a software GUI are designed to further enhance flexibility, while templates are intended to simplify complex solutions. At the same time, the top layer promotes a more open approach, accepting hardware components from other manufacturers. Add-ons are available as needed to help users attain a more holistic experience.
DirectOut states that its PRODIGY.MP already embodies the ASM philosophy with modular hardware, scalable DSP, adaptable control, and software. PRODIGY.MX, the newest addition, inherits core features from PRODIGY.MP and ASM’s DNA. With six network slots and extensive I/O, it is designed to remain open and expandable no matter which digital multichannel format or control system it is working with.
“Our vision at DirectOut is creating a harmonious symphony of audio solutions that work seamlessly together to meet and exceed our clients’ needs,” concludes Luca Giaroli, strategist and audio solution manager at DirectOut.
