QSC, a leading global manufacturer of cinema
solutions, is pleased to announce the addition of seven new products to the
most comprehensive line of cinema products in the industry. New products
include additions to the Media Server, Test and Measurement, Loudspeaker, and
Digital Cinema Monitor categories.
CMS-5000 Cinema Media
is a next-generation media server that combines all of the functions of an
integrated media block with onboard solid state storage. It offers several ways
to quickly ingest content and integrates seamlessly with Q-SYS™, a sound,
picture, and control platform.
The CMS-5000 features include two terabytes of reliable
onboard solid-state storage, dual HDMI 2.0 ports for alternate content, and a
10Gb Ethernet port for exceptionally fast DCP ingest of content and live
streaming ¬– up to 10 times faster than other servers.
As part of the Q-SYS ecosystem, the CMS-5000 appears in
Q-SYS Designer Software as a Q-SYS component, providing full system
interconnection, comprehensive management, audio channel routing, status
monitoring, and control of nearly any device in the cinema complex.
LSS-200 Light and
is designed for auditorium quality control, and makes it easy for cinema
operators to remotely monitor light and sound levels in a cinema
auditorium. It uses a new XYZ color
sensor for high accuracy color and luminance measurements, which his especially
critical for today’s projection technology and laser light sources. The LSS-200
features an integrated measurement microphone which measure sound pressure
Scripts are triggered by white flash sequence delivered by
the digital cinema server, TCP command, or contact closure. All captured measurements are limit checked
and logged for further analysis, and can be available on a web interface,
through TCP commands over Ethernet, and by posting data to a remote web
server. The LSS-200 is powered by user
supplied PoE switch, PoE power injector, or USB power supply.
SC-223 Screen Channel
is a bi-amplified, three-way screen channel loudspeaker system consisting of
one LF-2215 dual 15-inch low frequency enclosure, and one MH-1060 mid/high
section. A robust, custom-designed
passive crossover network is built into the MH-1060 mid/high section, which
also features CineSight™, QSC’s patented horn aiming system. The SC-223 is ideally suited for cinemas
where the distance from the screen to the last row is no more than 70 feet (21
meters). As a result of a newly-designed
mid-range phase plug and horn, the SC-223 features enhanced
midrange dialogue intelligibility and the benefits of Intrinsic Correction™
audio processing when used as part of a complete QSC system.
DCM 100 / DCM 300
100 and DCM
300 are cinema crossovers/monitors based on QSC’s extremely successful DPM
signal processing platform, providing loudspeaker crossover and monitoring
functions for in a single integrated system.
Designed to be used with the QSC DSC cinema loudspeakers, the new DCM
Series replaces the DCM 10D and DCM 30D, and features advanced Intrinsic
Correction settings, which optimizes loudspeaker performance out of the box and
minimizes onsite in-room equalization.
For up to three screen channel loudspeakers, the DCM 100 is configurable
for passive and bi-amplified operation, and the DCM 300 is configurable for passive,
bi-, tri- and quad-amplification. Both
models accommodate 2 or 4 surround channels for 5.1 or 7.1 cinemas.
SB118F / SB218F
are flyable subwoofers designed for low frequency enhancement of surround
content. The subwoofers feature integrated handles and eight built-in mounting
points making them ideal for safe and easy suspension from ceilings or walls.
The SB-118F has a single 18-inch driver, and the SB-218F has
two 18-inch drivers. Both subwoofers can be safely suspended close to the
ceiling so that interior décor is minimally affected. Both models feature a 4-ohm impedance rating,
so one can use a smaller amplifier to get maximum performance at a lower total
