DirectOut introduces MADI4.SRC.IO and PRODIGY.MX upgrade

DirectOut announced shipping of the MADI4.SRC.IO and MADI4.IO modules for the PRODIGY.MX system.

In January 2024, the company announced the first major upgrade to the PRODIGY.MX, which was unveiled at the NAMM Show 2024 and ISE 2024.  The PRODIGY.MX upgrade added a number of new features to the functionality of the current PRODIGY mainframe, available under the Advanced and Unlimited system licences. These include a 64×64 matrix mixer (MatMix), 64 flex channels with 64 IIR filters, 64 dynamics and delay plug-ins, and 64 input managers and EARS for all input channels, giving the system an exceptional level of redundancy and reliability. These enhancements enable cost-effective solutions as all features can be purchased either as single software plug-ins or in combination as part of the system licence bundles.

The MADI4.SRC.IO and MADI4.IO modules provide four MADI ports each, enabling an impressive channel count of 256 inputs and 256 outputs at 1FS (48kHz) per module.

The MADI4.SRC.IO module is a innovation, providing sample rate conversion (HD SRC) for all MADI inputs and outputs on board, enabling quality and flexibility in audio processing. Both modules also offer automatic redundancy switching between MADI ports and EARS providing audio switching for uninterrupted operation.

Claudio Becker-Foss, CTO of DirectOut, commented on the introduction of the new modules and the PRODIGY.MX upgrade: “With these new developments, we continue on our path of offering innovative and flexible solutions for professional audio applications. This upgrade extends the possibilities of the PRODIGY.MX far beyond of what you typically expect from an infrastructure device. We believe these enhancements will raise the industry standards and help our customers realise their creative visions.”
