Labs, an industry leader in digital cinema technology, for the motion picture
industry, has made new advancements on the increasingly popular JSD-60 Digital
Cinema Processor. USL’s inventive engineering team has now added Parametric
Equalization and Bass Management to the JSD-60 processor. The JSD-60, along
with many of the other innovative USL products will be on display at the
CinemaCon convention, April 11-14, in the USL, Inc. booth (#412F) at Caesar’s
Palace in Las Vegas, NV.
now have the choice between third octave equalization and parametric
equalization. With third octave
equalization, users have 27 fixed frequency filters plus bass and treble
shelving filters. As an alternative, the
user is presented with eight parametric filters on each channel. The frequency, gain, and Q can be adjusted on
each. It is often possible to get better
sound by using fewer filters with the precise frequency, gain, and bandwidth
required than using a large number of fixed frequency filters.
management firmware adds a second LFE channel with its own input mixer and
equalization. In a typical cinema installation, this second LFE channel (LFE2)
drives subwoofers in the rear of the auditorium. The surround channel audio coming in over
AES/EBU (Ls, Rs, Lrs, and Rrs channels) are combined in the mixer, filtered,
and then sent to LFE2. LFE2 extends the
low frequency range of the surround speakers.
features of the JSD-60 include an optional BLU Link output board, an internal
RTA, 8 main outputs (for up to 7.1 channels) plus HI and VI-N outputs (all
balanced line level). It comes with a
digital bypass circuit for AES/EBU and all other formats. An optional internal biamp crossover is
available for 5.1 and 7.1 channel auditoriums.
Drive-In cinema support is also included.
features along with the state of the art 96 KHz processing will make this
processor even more desirable,” commented Jack Cashin, Founder and President of
USL, Inc. “We have listened to our
customers and updated these features per their request,” added Tom Atkison,
Director of Technical Sales.
