Flexible IO Combinations. The prism family scales from the smallest 4×4 to the largest 16×16, providing the perfect amount of class leading Symetrix quality IO for any installation.

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

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 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 have been designed using standard 19” x 1U enclosures. For convenient point-of-use or rack mounting.
