Digital Cinema Processor from QSC Debuts at ShoWest
New DCP 300 Delivers Everything You Need Between the Server and Amps
A comprehensive digital cinema processor ideally suited for both D-Cinema upgrades and new installations, the new DCP 300 from QSC will make its industry debut at this year's ShoWest in booth #1509. Combining the power of 24-bit, 16-channel D-Cinema processing with DSP crossover functions and remote, Ethernet-based monitoring and control features capable of giving guidance to entire audio systems, the rackmount device can receive up to eight AES pairs of input from D-Cinema servers on two DB25 connectors. Network digital audio transport is facilitated as well, via CobraNet, to easily accommodate future expansion.
Full compatibility with QSC's DCA amplifiers allows the power of the DCP 300 to be added to applications converting to digital projection without the need for replacing existing amps. Housing advanced DSP crossover settings for the QSC family of DCS loudspeakers supporting up to five active two-way, three-way, or four-way screen channels, the device additionally offers full 1/3 octave graphic EQ on all channels (except subwoofer), a master volume and master mute, and an internal pink noise generator. 10 channels of analog inputs have also been thoughtfully provided for legacy 35 mm film processors. Dual power supplies further complement the package, along with complete parameter backup via SD memory—features inherently designed to keep you on-screen or get you back up quickly.
User interface is simple and intuitive using a color LCD touchscreen found on the DCP 300's front panel. A speaker also found on the front panel lets users keep tabs on either selected mixes of inputs or outputs, or any individual amplifier output channel. Line-level hearing and visually impaired outputs are furnished as standard equipment as well. Network support includes compatibility with QSC's QSControl and QSCreator, plus instrumentation and status indicators.
Placing virtually any imaginable D-Cinema processing function conveniently at your fingertips, the DCP 300 has a suggested retail price of $8000.
