Advanced Configuration Module

The core MTD Prodigy system starts with common presets and parameters built-in, however there are thousands of system parameters that can be customized using the Configuration Module. This module also includes the following advanced functions:

Root Cause Analysis, Determines the causal device failure using analysis of a rules-based sequence of events. Detects dataflow breakdown at any point in a critical path. As in a series of fallen dominos, this module tells you which domino caused the failure.

Content Locator, Quickly identifies where any piece of content is located within the facility or across the enterprise. Many methods for tracking media are employed including file name, file size, time recorded, media type and target locations. The Content Locator can also determine when expected material is missing or incomplete.

Compatibility Module

MTD Prodigy can be used as an extension to any legacy monitoring system that can read SNMP data. The Compatibility Module converts data gathered from its monitored devices into SNMP Enterprise Code data form so that other monitoring systems can take advantage of data from devices they themselves cannot capture directly.

SiteView Module

Brings together system information and analytics from multiple facilities into consolidated NOC displays.  Provides at-a-glance status overview of an entire multi-location enterprise, while enabling powerful drill-down to specific locations, devices and alerts.

On-site Server

MTD Prodigy typically works in conjunction with MTD Systems' servers, located at our data centers; however a server can optionally be located behind your firewall to provide greater security, redundancy and speed. This on-site server can be used in conjunction with the external MTD Prodigy servers to enhance external connectivity beyond your firewall.
