Quantum MC is a 1U rack mount IP audio codec extending the Quantum product family.

Quantum MC is a Multi-Channel IP codec for bridging phase-locked 5.1 audio signals over Internet between two such devices. (This is 6 phase-locked mono audios).

Alternatively this product might be used for an efficient low delay bidirectional bridge of 6 voices/audios between two production sites.

Quantum MC fully supports IP (TCP and UDP). This enables remote monitoring/configuring and data/audio transportation over data communications links (LAN, WAN, 3G/4G, Internet…)

This unit can be controlled from its built-in web graphical interface, its front panel display menu, or from the ProdysControlPlus application.


  • Available with up to six mono Audio Inputs/Outputs to be encoded and streamed.
  • Supports PCM and apt-X for six audio channels comunications
  • Supports Mpeg1/2 LayerII, AAC, apt-X, G711/G722, OPUS and PCM.for mono and stereo communications.
  • Dante/AES67 or Ravenna/AES67 to provide an uncompressed digital audio interface in a single Ethernet cable.


  • Inherits world-class IP technology from the Prodys Audio/Video codec family:
    Automatic Jitter buffer. This adjustable buffer avoids audio dropouts in the IP connection.
    Automatic synchronization adjustment with the transmitter site rate, to give a constant delay in IP communications.
    Prodys NAT Traversal Streaming Protocol permits router firewall pass-through with zero configuration.
    Prodys Real time Network Analyzer to monitor critical network parameters in real time during the connection.
    FEC (Forward Error Correction). Up to 24 different schemes are available, to fit to the desired delay and available bandwidth.
    Error Concealment mechanisms on Mpeg audio modes are supported to reduce the impact of packet losses.
  • 2 x Ethernet interfaces: Either to split streaming and control or for bonding/diversity 2 IP links.


  • User friendly interface via touch panel, built-in Web Server or ProdysControlPlus application.
  • User Access Control to define different access restrictions in a per user basis.
  • Configuration presets to define different configurations for all or some specific parameters.
  • Alarms: Real Time alarms management.
  • Serial port to transmit/receive ancillary data along with the audio.
  • GPIO port: 7 inputs/outputs. User configurable with multiple functions such as remote contact closures.
  • Local or remotely (TCP/IP) upgrading of one or several units at once using the same utility. Factory software upgrades can be downloaded.
