DirectOut unveils MAVEN – a powerful yet compact DSP platform for ultimate flexibility

DirectOut has launched MAVEN – a smart audio platform that redefines the limits of flexibility, rack space and DSP power.

Building on the success of the PRODIGY series, MAVEN offers DirectOut’s powerful DSP engine in a compact 1RU device, expanding the integration possibilities for sound engineers, system designers and AV professionals.

With the modular architecture and popular module-design introduced by PRODIGY, MAVEN is fully compatible with its big brother, PRODIGY.MP and can be tailored to the specific needs of any project. It delivers the same DSP power, enhancing its flexibility and range of applications. MAVEN offers support for a variety of audio network formats, including Dante, AVB/MILAN, RAVENNA/AES67 and SoundGrid. It is the perfect solution for live sound, installation, remote-production, studio recording and broadcast.

MAVEN’s reduced footprint makes it the perfect solution for decentralised setups in installed AV for systems of any size, where flexibility, maximum reliability and compactness matters.

MAVEN inherits the outstanding sound quality and tour-proven reliability of PRODIGY.MP including, flexible routing options and a scalable DSP core, making it perfectly adaptable to the dynamic demands of live events.

As part of the DirectOut Audio Solution Model (ASM), MAVEN expands the portfolio of smart hardware platforms towards smaller sized solutions, allowing users to extend their systems with additional functionality, control protocols, and add-ons to create a customized solution adapted to their specific requirements.

“With MAVEN, we can now offer the unlimited DSP feature-set, uncompromised reliability, and flexibility initially introduced by PRODIGY.MP on a footprint of just 1RU,” says Jan Ehrlich, CEO of DirectOut. “Our customers’ demand for a more compact and even more granular platform has encouraged us to set new limits in terms of downsizing a DSP solution that is as powerful as our existing products.”

With MAVEN, DirectOut is setting new standards in the audio industry, taking form factor and power density/ratio to a new level. DirectOut invites all interested parties to experience MAVEN at the upcoming InfoComm show in Las Vegas (Booth C9464), where they will have the opportunity to see the platform in action and speak with DirectOut’s experts.
