Product Of The Month: Prism

Posted by Kae Fu on June 13, 2016  /   Posted in News

DSP price/performance breakthrough. 4×4, 8×8, 12×12, and 16×16 analog I/O versions, all with 64×64 Dante™ and the exact same powerful Symetrix DSP engine found in our Edge and Radius products.

Incredible Sound.  Industry leading analog mic-pre and A/D/D/A performance, 48 volt phantom mic power.

Scalable Dante™ network audio – 64×64.  From small and simple, to mega large and complex projects, Dante™ digital audio over Ethernet is an industry standard means for interconnecting multiple Edge, Radius and Prism DSP’s, Symetrix I/O expanders, and a growing range of select Dante enabled 3rd party peripherals including microphones and power amps.

Performance at a Glance.  Front panel OLED displays configuration and metering. Embedded web server enables remote metering and diagnostics.

Control made easy.  Multiple control options include zero cost ARC-WEB browser interface, low-cost Symetrix ARC wall panels, easy to generate SymVue Windows GUI. A stable, human readable protocol is used to program third-party touch screens.
