QSC has announced the new DPM Series of digital signal processors/monitors, which build on the company’s legacy of products 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 and featuring advanced Intrinsic Correction settings for QSC’s digital cinema speakers, the DPM optimizes QSC loudspeaker and amplifier performance while simplifying cinema sound system wiring and configuration.
The DPM is configurable for passive or bi-amp operation for 5.1 or 7.1 systems. Two models are available: DPM 100 and DPM 100H (with HDMI in/out and Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Surround 7.1, and DTS-HD decoding) for non-sync and alternative content sources.
“Since we introduced the first DSP-based cinema crossover with built-in booth monitor almost 17 years ago, cinema operators have appreciated the multifunction capability and feature set that our DCM Series offered,” said Mark Mayfield, director of global Cinema marketing and product manager for QSC Cinema Products. “Technology has changed dramatically since then. Digital cinema has redefined the requirements of audio signal processors; crossovers, equalization, monitoring, sophisticated processing tailored to specific loudspeakers, and alternative digital audio format decoding are just a few of the new must-haves today. The new DPM models offer all of this and more in a compact two-rack space design at a very cost effective price point.”
