With the latest update to its Prodigy Series, DirectOut has extended control of the Prodigy.MC and Prodigy.MP from the front panel touch display and globcon remote control software using native JSON API to include Ember+.

DirectOut adds Ember+ support to Prodigy SeriesThe Prodigy Series was designed from the outset for support of third-party control protocols, easing integration into projects where independent or existing control software or systems are already in place. Ember+ has now been added as the first network based third-party protocol.

Ember+ is an open control protocol based on an initiative of the Lawo Group, and is already used by companies such as Riedel, SSL and Lawo. The DirectOut implementation allows control of configuration, settings of the microphone preamp and the routing matrix (including channel labelling), as well as monitoring the status of the device.

‘Ember+ opens up the range of control systems that can interact with our Prodigy devices. For example popular and widespread software like hi, VSM or KSC may be used – even direct access from a mixing console can be possible,’ says DirectOut CEO/CTO, Claudio Becker-Foss. ‘Actually, we´ve already successfully tested our implementation with Broadcast Solutions´ control software hi, without any changes required in the software.’

globcon can be used at the same time to control other functions, such as the DSP section of Prodigy.MP.

Ember+ will be available as a paid option for the Prodigy Series, and can be purchased separately per device.
