The Symetrix Prism 8x8 DSP Audio Processor with Dante providing the perfect amount of class leading Symetrix quality IO for any installation. DSP price/performance breakthrough. 8x8 analog I/O with 64x64 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.

Dante in Our DNA

Prism DSPs are equipped with optional factory installed 128 (64×64) Dante channels. The Dante protocol enables ultra-reliable multi-channel audio networking over IP. Together, Symetrix and Dante provide the fastest possible way to implement, control, and maintain a system of networked DSPs and accessories including third party Dante-enabled microphones, loudspeakers, power amps, and mixing consoles. Models without Dante provide even more accessible DSP pricing for smaller systems.

Scaling Up

 A Prism system’s analog input and output count may be increased using Symetrix Dante-enabled xIn 4, xIO 4×4, xOut 4, xIn 12, and xOut 12 analog I/O expanders.

Unlimited Programming Flexibility

Prism is programmed using Composer – Symetrix’ award winning open-architecture CAD application. Unique to Composer is the ability to natively configure Symetrix and select third party Dante hardware – thereby eliminating the confusion of multiple or redundant software applications. Learn more about Composer here.

Control Made Easy

Multiple control options include low-cost Symetrix ARC wall panels and an easy to generate SymVue Windows virtual GUI. The human readable Composer Control Protocol supports the programming of third-party touch screens and control devices.

An Embedded Web Server for Status and Even More Control

Prism’s embedded web server displays I/O levels, diagnostics data, and hosts ARC-WEB – a browser-based interface for smart phones, tablets, and computers.

Form, Fit and Function

Prism 8×8, 12×12 and 16×16 have been designed using standard 19” x 1U enclosures. For convenient point-of-use or rack mounting, Prism 4×4 features 1/2 rack 1U form factor. (Surface and rack mount kits sold separately.)
