Modular, state-of-the-art audio converters and signal processor for use in professional live sound, broadcast, installation and recording applications



This product page is for the DirectOut Prodigy.MC frame only. All I/O modules are sold separately.

PRODIGY.MC is a modular audio converter, designed to address numerous applications in live sound, broadcast, installation and recording, using a single hardware frame. Fully modular, it can be configured to specific requirements, giving budget savings as well as the flexibility to address changes in the global media environment through future upgrades.

Modular approach, maximum flexibility
I/O includes eight local slots for analog line-level/mic input and AES3 modules. With eight channels per module, PRODIGY.MC provides up to 64 local inputs and outputs. The hardware additionally supports two MADI and one network audio option. MADI slots can be equipped with BNC, SC optical and SFP modules, while the network audio board adds Dante, RAVENNA/AES67 or SoundGrid. The channel capacity sums up to 320 inputs and 324 outputs which are managed with a channel-based routing matrix.

Check out the MODULES available for the PRODIGY Series below.

Networked audio and seamless interoperability
The network audio module is designed to accommodate different formats in order to meet present and future requirements in various applications.

The newly designed RAVENNA module complies with AES67, ST 2110-30 / -31, and supports all ST 2022-7 classes. As a successful participant of the JT-NM Tested program RAV2 is listed in the JT-NM Tested Catalog as a device aligning with the SMPTE 2110 standards. With the Dante option, the hardware can be a front-end for audio consoles, or a standalone converter and routing system. Waves Audio?s SoundGrid offers extremely low latency audio transport and allows Waves servers to be connected for plug-in inserts. Virtual soundcards for macOS and Windows can directly interface with any DAW for multitrack recording and virtual sound-checking.

The FastSRC? is a low latency sample rate converter, switchable for the MADI I/Os and the audio network I/O, and ensures seamless exchange when digital sources are not synchronised.

Control is key, multiple access locally and remotely
globcon remote control, a browser-based GUI, and a front panel touch display ensure ultimate usability.

globcon software offers full control of multiple pieces of equipment in Mac/PC/Linux-based systems and features a comprehensive snapshot management with selective recall scope-sets. It also supports trigger management which includes OSC and MIDI for control e.g. from a tablet device.

Automated surveillance and red-light control are possible through GPIOs. A USB port on the rear panel offers connection and control of legacy devices via globcon bridge.

Safe operation, monitoring
Two headphone outputs provide local monitoring of any I/O. Two phase-redundant power supplies grant seamless operation of the device.
An internal switch on the network module ensures redundancy for the network domain.

While the Dante module supports Dante redundancy, the RAVENNA module offers stream redundancy in accordance with ST 2022-7.

EARS? (Enhanced Automatic Redundancy Switching) is available for several combinations of inputs. EARS? is a system to prevent interruption of the output signal. It uses either the proven BLDS? technology or pilot tone triggering. A logic monitors the condition of the trigger signal on the input. In case of a failure it switches automatically to the backup input.

The BLDS? Generator can be patched as virtual source in the Matrix and provides monitoring of connections with automatic fail-over switching.

An internal LTC reader displays incoming linear timecode on the touchscreen or via the globcon control software where it can be used to trigger any action.
