Symetrix Expands Dante DSP Line-up with Launch of Prism

Publish date:

SEATTLE, USA – 21 JANUARY 2016: Symetrix® has announced the launch and immediate availability of its Prism digital signal processing platform. Joining the manufacturer’s line of Dante™-enabled DSPs, Symetrix Prism has been developed to deliver cost-efficient, high-powered networked audio processing for a wide range of installed sound applications.

Symetrix Prism is comprised of four products, varying only in I/O count and form factor. Prism 4x4 features 4 inputs and 4 outputs, power over Ethernet (PoE+), and a compact ½ rack format. Prism 8x8 (8 in, 8 out), 12x12 (12 in, 12 out) and 16x16 (16 in, 16 out) utilize an external power supply along with a 1U form factor. DSP, analog audio, and converter technologies are identical in all four products. Prism features the same digital signal processing power, mic preamps and AD/DA converters as Symetrix’ award-winning Radius and Edge products, delivering exceptional sound quality, while providing expansion via 64 channels of bi-directional Dante networking.

Integrators can customize, connect, and configure Prism using Symetrix Composer, a highly-accoladed Windows®-based CAD program. Prism can be controlled from Symetrix ARC wall panels, ARC-WEB browser-based interface and third-party touchscreens. An embedded web server enables remote audio metering and diagnostics of Prism hardware. Prism features an easy to read OLED display, while Symetrix ARC, Dante and Ethernet ports are standard issue.

“We’re excited to announce the launch of Prism,” commented Dane Butcher, founder and CEO of Symetrix. “The Prism line-up enables more users to join the Dante ecosystem as it provides a straightforward audio DSP solution that is flexible and cost-effective for all manner of installations – commercial, corporate, house of worship, education, and government.”

Acknowledging what Mr. Butcher describes as “a dramatic increase” in demand for Dante-based networking over the past couple of years, he goes on to say “With Prism and compatible Symetrix I/O expanders and control products, integrators can deliver high performance systems at price points not even imaginable just a few short years ago. “

“Drawing on Symetrix’ forty-year history as an audio signal processing innovator, Prism makes our award-winning DSP technology available to an even greater audience,” Mr. Butcher concludes. “With open-architecture flexibility, future expansion capability and top-notch sound quality, we are confident that Prism will be a go-to component in the integrator’s toolkit.”
