DirectOut, a leading provider of audio solutions, is pleased to announce the introduction of the MILAN.IO module for their popular PRODIGY Series of converters and processors. This new module, which supports up to 128 audio channels at 1FS, marks DirectOut’s entry into the AVB/MILAN* community after joining the AVNU Alliance.
The MILAN.IO module features two redundant gigabit network interfaces with RJ45 or SFP options, managed via an internal AVB switch. With a sample rate range from 44.1 kHz to 192 kHz, it offers exceptional flexibility. Additionally, the module supports an optional HD SRC technology, enabling state-of-the-art sample rate conversion and providing an alternative to FastSRC.
DirectOut has expanded its range of supported audio network formats with the addition of AVB/MILAN to its existing lineup, which includes Dante, RAVENNA/AES67, and SoundGrid. With the PRODIGY.MP Multifunction Audio Processor, equipped with two audio network slots, customers can now bridge AVB/MILAN and Dante or any other supported audio network, as well as MADI, AES3, and Analog. The PRODIGY.MP, with the addition of AVB/MILAN and its superior filtering and DSP processing power, offers an unparalleled solution for FOH signal management and PA tuning.
Commenting on the announcement, Claudio Becker-Foss, CEO/CTO of DirectOut, stated, “Building bridges between different audio formats is part of DirectOut’s DNA since the beginning. Starting with RAVENNA, we added SoundGrid and Dante as audio network formats to our portfolio and an AVB/MILAN solution is just the next step that comes natural. Particularly the live sound industry embraced the advent of AVB/MILAN and with our new interface we look forward to simplify and streamline audio processing and signal distribution in daily tour business.”
DirectOut will showcase the PRODIGY Series and its latest audio solutions at Stand #5650 during the InfoComm Exhibition in Orlando.
