to provide professional audio enhancement and volume control for cinema sound
solutions, the CPi2000 combines a robust feature set with exceptional
ease-of-use to meet the demands of today’s cinema environments. Features
include powerful DSP processing, JBL cinema speaker crossover presets, system fault detection, and custom-designed
GUI software that simplifies configuration and provides the processor with a
1/3 octave GEQ for room tuning.
large front-panel LCD display and an accessible volume knob allows technicians to
easily monitor the status of the system, amplifiers and speakers, and quickly adjust
global output levels. When paired with select Crown amplifiers, the processor
can detect faults of speakers or amplifiers and send fault information to a TMS
or third-party control system via its RJ45 connector.
Built for quick and easy setup, the CPi2000 offers
four input options: analog, digital, non-sync and mono mic. The analog and
digital inputs accept audio signals from any cinema server, the non-sync input
receives line-level stereo signals from CD or DVD players for background-music
playback, and the mic input connects to an RTA microphone for room tuning.
In addition, the CPi2000 includes 10 HD-15 analog
outputs for passive, bi-amp or tri-amp connection, a 25-pin analog output for
compatibility with third-party audio systems, and a redundant output that works
together with the analog input to bypass the processor during power failures
and directly distribute audio signals.
The CPi2000 is perfect for any cinema utilizing 5.1
or 7.1 surround sound. Because many of today’s cinemas deploy digital servers
for content playback with 5.1 or 7.1 non-compressed audio output, the CPi2000
is designed to work with these cinema sound solutions to process and distribute
audio to the system’s speakers.
The JBL CPi2000 is now available for order through
HARMAN distributors worldwide. For more information on the CPi2000 please visit
