Densitron IDS, the British manufacturer of touch-based display solutions, has forged a partnership with DirectOut Technologies to present new control options to customers of its modular PRODIGY series.
“Users gain fast and intuitive access to selected parameters of the PRODIGY.MC multichannel converter and the PRODIGY.MP audio processor,” said Alexandra Jakins, Sales Executive at Densitron.
By integrating the PRODIGY control protocol within Densitron’s IDS display and control systems, access to the PRODIGY series is greatly simplified and its range of applications significantly extended towards installation applications.
“Our flexible, network-based UI system TS10 is based on a 10.1-inch touch screen, which complements the PRODIGY series wherever direct access to the DirectOut devices is required to simplify more complex workflows within the PRODIGY devices,” Jakins said. “We see studio applications in the broadcast sector in particular here, as has already happened at the BBC, among others.”
DirectOut CEO, Jan Ehrlich, added, “We ourselves are able to map the extensive functions and processes that the PRODIGY series brings with our globcon user interface; and globcon is a powerful tool and makes the PRODIGY series a powerful overall system for signal conversion, routing, monitoring and processing.”
Thus, the integration into Densitron IDS allows the parallel operation of PRODIGY products via a second layer regarding input and output trim and gain, routing, signal monitoring as well as the simple loading of stored snapshots via touch.
In addition to the focus on studio applications in broadcasting, the extended operability of the DirectOut PRODIGY series via Densitron IDS enables above all simple and intuitive operation of the hardware in fixed installations, for example in stadiums and arenas, corporate installations, theatres and concert halls.
