DirectOut has announced the immediate availability of the new PRODIGY.MX multiformat audio matrix, the latest addition to the company’s PRODIGY Series following its debut at the IBC Exhibition in Amsterdam.

PRODIGY.MX offers up to 1664 inputs and 1668 outputs granularly handled by a single-channel routing matrix. The 2RU device can convert, connect and even isolate various digital audio formats, including MADI, Dante, RAVENNA/AES67, SoundGrid, and AVB/MILAN. Optional HD SRC technology bridges different clock domains.

The introduction of PRODIGY.MX also brought a complementary globcon update, highlighted by the integration of new factory templates designed for PRODIGY.MP that help streamline deployment in festival and touring applications. These templates, when loaded via globcon, automate the setup of internal DSP routing, layouts, and snapshots configurations on the PRODIGY.MP device.

In addition, the entire PRODIGY series received a maintenance update. The new system build includes customer requests made over recent months, such as zeroConf (link local address support) for the management interface, AES output dark to disable the AES output signal for downstream failover detection, a MIDI tunnel for SG.IO, and more.

“We are thrilled to announce the availability of PRODIGY.MX and the overall improvements for the entire series,” says Luca Giaroli, strategy and audio solutions manager at DirectOut. “These updates underscore DirectOut’s commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions that simplify audio management and enhance the user experience in demanding environments.”
