DCP 300Digital Cinema Processor
A Cinema Processor, Booth Monitor and Digital Crossover along with network
control and monitoring of DSP, amplifiers and speakers in one integrated package.
Everything you need between server and amps.
QSC's Digital Cinema Processor, the DCP 300, builds on the legacy of DCM and Basis to provide all signal processing and monitoring functions for Digital Cinema in a single integrated system. Designed to be used with QSC's Digital Cinema Amplifiers (DCA) and featuring advanced DSP presets for QSC's Digital Cinema Speakers (DCS), the DCP 300 optimizes loudspeaker performance while simplifying cinema sound system wiring and configuration. The DCP 300 covers cinema systems ranging from three to five screen channels, and are configurable for bi-amp, tri-amp or quad-amp operation. The DCP 300 is also compatible with all analog cinema processor formats including Dolby® Digital Surround-EX and DTS-ES and features a 10 channel analog input for intergration with 35mm audio systems.
Digital Signal Processing
The DCP 300 digital signal processing capability outperforms traditional analog crossovers and equalizers for optimized speaker performance. Crossover frequency, 1/3 octave graphic EQ, parametric equalization, polarity, delay and gain can be precisely adjusted for each speaker in your system. Active 2-way, 3-way and 4-way crossovers are available. Advanced crossover presets for QSC DCS speakers speeds system set-up and insures maximum performance.
Less Wiring, Faster Set-up
DCPs greatly simplify system wiring and set-up, significantly reducing installation time and labor cost. Input to the DCP is provided via standard DB-25 cables from the D-Cinema server and/or 35mm cinema processor. Connections to DCA amplifiers for input and monitor signals are made through a single QSC DataPort / VGA-style cable. All traditional XLR and barrier strip terminations are eliminated. DCPs simplify set-up by using a menu-driven, PC-based software program for configuration. The program includes a speaker data file that lists default parameters for popular cinema speaker models. Commonly used configurations can also be saved on a disk, allowing you to quickly load them on other DCMs. All system configuration data is saved to an SD memory card, allowing easy transfer of settings to a new DCP, should replacement ever be required.
Advanced Monitor Functions
In addition to audio monitoring of amplifier inputs and outputs, DCPs include QSC's exclusive "load fault" detection. DCPs monitor all amplifier outputs and indicate opens and shorts in the speaker system, providing confirmation that all amplifier outputs are functioning properly. In addition, the DCP detects all amplifier clipping, protect modes and heat sink temperature for reporting via a QSControl Ethernet monitoring system. QSControl and QSCreator allow for the creation of custom control screens and remote access for fault reporting and diagnosis. The NAC 100 Ethernet remote control panel provides remote operation in a multiplex from anywhere on the local network.
