DirectOut has added a new module to its Prodigy Series – the Madi2.SFP.IO.

The new module shares the housing and form factor of the Prodigy Audio Network modules, and hosts two SFP cages that can be equipped with Optical or Coaxial Madi SFP transceivers. Each port on the module supports 64 audio channels, expanding the Madi capabilities of Prodigy.MP and Prodigy.MC mainframes to 384 and 256 Madi channels respectively when operating at 1FS.

DirectOut Madi2.SFP.IO moduleThe Madi2.SFP.IO module also offers the possibility to perform HD SRC on Madi – a feature that was already available for Dante, Ravenna/AES67 and SoundGrid, and which provides an alternative to the FastSRC. It is also equipped with FPGA-based sample rate conversion which enables asynchronous operation between the module and the Prodigy mainframe, independently from the configured reference clock of the device.

With SNMP(v1/v2), DirectOut is offering a further third-party standard protocol to monitor the Prodigy Series in mission critical positions. Especially in larger installations, the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is being used to monitor device statuses and to trigger alarms if crucial functions fail or specific events occur.

As for the Prodigy Series, vital device functionalities can be put under surveillance, such as the PSU, temperature and fan conditions or the status of the GPIOs. The lock/sync state of the digital inputs and the WCK/Video sync can be monitored as well as Madi Redundancy and EARS trigger information.

SNMP comes as a paid license option for the Prodigy series. The MIB file is available upon request.
