German audio network and interconnectivity specialist DirectOut Technologies has appointed Contact Distribution as its Canadian distributor.

Jan Ehrlich, CEO and sales director of DirectOut, explains the decision. “Our clients, designers and users as well as our engineers, support staff and products all strive to offer the absolute best in the audio industry,” he says. “Our global partners carry on that ideal and Contact’s 34-year history of servicing the top of the North American pro audio and broadcast industries is a perfect match. Contact’s expertise in digital audio networks and fibre-based solutions is exemplary and the ideal basis to take Prodigy and our entire portfolio to the markets they were created for.”

Bill Coons, director of Contact, adds: “DirectOut products and the people behind the brand are in the rarified air where very few manufactures exist. Their precision and quality is virtually unrivalled. The mind-blowing capabilities of Prodigy.MP processor version has now stunned the live production and integration markets in the same way the Prodigy.MC conversion units astonished the global broadcast industry. These models in conjunction with Globcon control software are the long-awaited universal solution every high-level audio system any application could ever reliably require."

Prior to this appointment, in Canada DirectOut has established a solid list of leading audio users including CBC, Cirque du Soleil, Bell Media, Solotech, as well as personal use by many of the country’s top recording producers and engineers.
