Prodys was established in 1995 and is based in Madrid, Spain. It has always had an international profile supplying its products to more than 50 countries.

The company specializes in Audio & Video compression algorithms and transmission technologies, both in hardware and software. It has a staff of more than 30 people, of which 70% are engineering based.

Prodys’ initial developments in audio compression led to the creation of the PRONTO ISDN & X.21 audio codec. This first model was enhanced by a program of continuous development to include new algorithms (MPEG II & III) and was released as the PRONTO 2 and PRONTO 3.

Prodys’ pioneering strategy has lead to the creation of a range of codecs designed to take advantage of the global desire to unify transmission media by the use of IP (Internet Protocol). This new equipment from Prodys has replaced the successful PRONTO ISDN codec, and of course incorporates the technologies and new developments that made the universally acclaimed PRONTO ISDN codecs so successful. In 2004 the PRONTONET was launched. This codec included IP, ISDN & X.21 as well as a full range of industry standard algorithms including AAC and apt-X in a 1U rack mounting unit.

The PRONTONET family has been expanded to include robust portable codecs NOMADA (Nomada IPW & Nomada IP XL) as well as multi-channel rack mounting units NEREUS.

After establishing firmly in the audio market, Prodys began to develop new products video compression and transmission, that ended in the creationg of the unique bidirectional portable video codec IKUSNET,

Finally, from the confluence of the technologies used in the previous audio and video codecs, the new family of audio codecs QUANTUM was born, in which the biggest technological advances available in the market for this type of products have been included. Quantum family has a wide range of products ranging from single-person portable audio codecs to large-capacity multicodecs, including the first audiocodec with a video decoder, V-Quantum.

Prodys is almost unique in that it designs and develops all of its products and technologies in house, giving the ability to quickly adapt its products to changing markets and even individual customer requirements.
