System Overview
4.1
System Description
The JSD-60 cinema sound processor is specially designed for digital cinema applications. Low noise and low
distortion 96 kHz processing ensures superb presentations. In addition to the six standard formats. A userconfigurable format button can be configured to support a variety of existing and future formats. It may also be
used to duplicate an existing format but at a different fader level to simplify desired volume changes between
content types. The front panel display shows the current fader level, the format name (which is user configurable),
and the audio level on each audio output. The built-in bypass audio circuitry ensures that the presentation goes
on in the unlikely event of a system failure.
Page 8
The JSD-60 is “automation friendly.” It features the standard DB25 parallel automation interface, an RS-232
(EIA232) interface, and Ethernet. The Ethernet interface accepts 5 simultaneous TCP connections to allow control
by a digital cinema server and other equipment while simultaneously being monitored over another TCP
connection.
The Graphical User Interface runs on Windows XP®, Windows 7®, and Windows 8® operating systems. It allows for
complete system configuration, monitoring, and firmware updates over USB, Ethernet, or RS-232. The JSD-60
graphical user interface simplifies installation by including sound pressure level measurement and automatic
equalization. System monitoring, control, and firmware update functions are also available on a standard web
browser.
The JSD-60 includes a precision 1/3 octave RTA that uses the filters specified in ANSI S1.11-1986. The JSD-60 also
does sound pressure measurements using the C-weighted filter specified in ANSI S1.4-1983. The RTA and SPL
meter can be used to equalize an auditorium manually or automatically.
The JSD-60 includes an automatic equalization feature (auto-EQ). Auto-EQ uses user-defined microphone
calibration files and standard or user-defined equalization curves to automatically adjust the graphic equalizer on
each channel.
The JSD-60 is also “diagnostic friendly.” The system logs the last 15,000 events (format changes, level changes,
internal temperature, loss of AES/EBU audio, etc.) to internal flash memory. Log data can be reviewed on the GUI
or the web interface. Current operational status, including selected format, fader level, and measured audio
output levels, is available on the GUI and on the web interface. The current status of the system is also available
over SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).
An optional plug-in module decodes Dolby Digital and DTS encoded content.
The HI and VI-N outputs are configurable on a per-format basis.
An optional crossover card supports biamp of three screen channels and provides two LFE outputs.
A user configurable mixer routes audio as required for the specific auditorium. Supported auditorium
configurations include 5.1, 7.1DS, 7.1SDDS, and drive-in.
4.2
Block Diagrams
The following simplified block diagrams assist the user in understanding the signal flow within the JSD-60. All input
sources are routed to the Input Mixer that routes a source to an output. An internal noise and tone generator is
available for testing and acoustic calibration of the sound system. The output stream contains the main fader, sync
and surrounds delays, equalizer, channel filter, and crossover with individual band delays and gain settings. The
hearing impaired (HI) and visually impaired - narrative (VI-N) outputs do not include an equalizer, channel filter or
crossover and are not affected by the main fader.
Page 9
Figure 4.2a Audio Processing Overview
The output of the mixer or internal generator is routed to the main fader control. The output is then routed to a
delay for both projector synchronization and surrounds. The crossover includes individual delays for high and low
bands. Each channel, with the exception of LFE, HI, and VI-N, has a 27 band graphic equalizer including bass and
treble shelving filters. After equalization a channel filter process can be applied. The channel filter can be used to
apply special effects to a specific channel. For example, it may be desirable to notch out dialog frequencies on a
generated Lc or Rc channel. The channel filter supports high pass, low pass, band pass, notch, and disabled. The
LFE channel is routed through a parametric equalizer and a 125Hz low pass filter as specified by SMPTE EG0432-22006. When the internal crossover is not used, full-range audio is sent to the low-band outputs. The outputs are
driven with balanced line drivers through solid state switches used for muting. Similar switches route bypass audio
to the left and right outputs when required.
As shown in Figure 4.2b, each input is digitally converted (analog to digital or sample rate conversion) and routed
to the mixer within the DSP. The two channel sources are converted and then routed to a Sample Rate Converter
(SRC) that can be either mixed or have an active matrix applied to them to generate six digital audio sources (5.1
channels). The COAX and TOSLINK sources can have the either a two channel mix or six channel decode. The
optional DI-84 board is required to decode Dolby Digital ®, DTS, or apply an active matrix, each converting the two
channel signals to 5.1 channels.
Page 10
Figure 4.2b Audio Sources Overview
Each output, including HI and VI-N, has a mixer with eight digital and six analog inputs. The input source and
decode options determine the active sources for the mixer.
Simplified Crossover Block Diagram
The following Figure 4.2c shows the details of the crossovers. The audio is split into high band and low band
components with high pass filter #4 and low pass filter #0. These are both 4th order Linkwitz-Riley filters. They are
followed by a series of parametric filters. The high band includes a pair of shelving filters (#7 and #8) to
compensate for the high frequency characteristics of the high frequency horn and the screen. Each band ends up
with a delay block. Individual band delays can be set as required. This block also includes a provision to flip the
phase in case a speaker is wired incorrectly.
In most installations, the user merely loads crossover settings from the supplied speaker library, and then adjusts
the output trims as required to compensate for amplifier gain differences and speaker efficiency differences.

Figure 4.2c Crossover Overview
In the lower portion of Figure 4.2c, the LFE band is shown. It is not really a crossover since it does not split the
channel into multiple frequency bands. It is similar to a crossover, however, in that a single audio channel is split
into multiple outputs with separate equalization (parametric) and delay. Because of this similarity, the LFE
equalizer is located in the crossover section of the DSP. The additional LFE2 output is only available from the
crossover board’s output connector.

System Hardware Mounting, Grounding and Ventilation
The JSD-60 is designed to mount in a standard 19 inch (482.6mm) rack and is one rack unit high (1.75 inches,
44.45mm). The JSD-60 should be mounted at “eye level” in the equipment rack for optimum display contrast and
visibility. We recommend vented panels (USL part number VP-1) above and below the JSD-60 whenever space
permits. Mounting the unit immediately above a major heat-producing component, such as a power amplifier, is
not recommended. Equipment mounted immediately above the JSD-60 should not be more than 9 inches
(225mm) deep to ensure adequate airflow through the top cover ventilation holes on the JSD-60. The JSD-60
includes a three-prong grounding plug and a three-wire power cord to accommodate a safe ground path from the
chassis to the electrical system ground. Defeating this ground by removing the ground prong is not recommended.

Audio Input Connections
Eight Channel AES/EBU Input
The JSD-60 accepts 8 channel AES/EBU audio. This input is typically driven by the digital cinema server (DCS). The
[2]
JSD-60 includes a DB25F connector using the Dolby DMA8 pin out and an RJ-45 connectors using the StudioHub
pin out. The first six channels are assigned speakers by industry convention. The remaining channels can be
configured by the user (i.e., sources for HI/VI-N, Lrs, Rrs, etc.). For convenience, all connector pin outs are listed in
Appendix A.
[2]
Please see the Studio Hub website: www.StudioHub.com
Page 16
Six Channel Analog Input
The JSD-60 six channel analog input is on a DB25F connector. The analog inputs are active balanced (differential)
inputs. They may be driven by balanced or unbalanced sources. When driven by an unbalanced source, the
negative input should be connected to the low side of the source at the source equipment to minimize ground
loop noise. The cable should be twisted pair with individual shields, even when driven by an unbalanced
source. The DB25F connector uses the THX® pin out as specified in the table in Appendix A.
Two Channel Analog Input
The JSD-60 has a stereo analog input (Non/Sync) on two RCA connectors. Connect these to an appropriate source
using RCA cables. Various stereo decode methods are available in the system. These allow direct driving of the left
and right speakers, adding a synthesized center channel, surround, and custom mix for all output channels.
Two Channel Digital Inputs
The JSD-60 has an S/PDIF input and a TOSLINK input.
S/PDIF Input. A stereo digital input on an RCA connector marked COAX. It is a standard S/PDIF (Sony Philips
Digital Interface) input. Connect to appropriate sources with 75 ohm coaxial cable with RCA connectors on
each end. As with the other stereo inputs, various decode methods are available.
TOSLINK Input. A TOSLINK optical digital stereo input is included on the JSD-60. Connect this input to an
appropriate source with a standard TOSLINK cable. As with other stereo inputs, various decode methods are
available.
Single Channel Audio Inputs
The JSD-60 has a Public Address (PA) and Real Time Analyzer (RTA) microphone input.
PA/RTA Microphone Input. Plug a PA microphone in to the combination XLR / ¼” stero (TRS) phone jack. The
microphone input may be configured to drive the main or the surround speakers. In addition, the PA
microphone input can drive the RTA for room equalization. The jack is a combination XLR and ¼” TRS (stereo)
connector. The XLR input is balanced. The 1/4 inch connector can be used either balanced or unbalanced.
Phantom power can drive both sides of a balanced line with +12V. It can also drive an unbalanced input
(typically on the 1/4 inch connector) with +9V. When using unbalanced phantom power, the signal is on the
tip and the phantom power voltage is on the ring
6.6
Analog Audio Output Connections
The JSD-60 provides eight main channel outputs plus HI and VI-N outputs. All outputs are balanced and may drive
balanced or unbalanced loads. When driving unbalanced loads, run two conductor shielded cable and connect the
“ – ” terminal of the JSD-60 output to the low side of the unbalanced load at the load instead of at the JSD-60 to
minimize ground loop noise.
Main Audio Outputs
The eight channel analog output connector provides eight balanced analog outputs. These are full-range outputs if
no crossover board is installed. If a crossover board is installed, this connector provides the low band outputs of
the screen channels, the full range surround channels, and the LFE1 output. The crossover output connector
provides three crossover high band outputs plus the LFE2 output. On systems with the crossover, four DIP switches
set the crossover frequency for the bypass passive crossover. If the crossover is not to be used, set all the switches
to off. Adjust the low trim pot to yield the desired bypass output level. Remember that the front panel fader also
affects the output level when in bypass. For more information on bypass operation with crossovers, see Section
7.7.1. The connector pin outs are listed in Appendix A
HI/VI-N Outputs
The JSD-60 has balanced HI and VI-N outputs that can drive balanced or unbalanced loads. As with other outputs,
the use of twisted pair shielded cable is suggested whether the load is balanced or unbalanced. When driving an
Page 17
unbalanced load, connect the “ – ” output of the JSD-60 to low side of the unbalanced input at the destination end
of the cable to minimize ground loop noise. The source of audio to drive the HI and VI-N outputs is configurable on
a per-format basis. The VI-N audio output is typically driven by AES/EBU input 8. The HI audio output can be
driven from AES/EBU input 7 or from an audio mix via the channel mixer located in the “Advanced” tab in the
Windows GUI.
6.7
Automation Interface
The JSD-60 includes the traditional parallel automation interface plus RS-232 and Ethernet. This interface will
accept the JSD-100 automation commands to simplify the installation and setup.
Parallel Interface
Pins 1 through 10 of the DB25F automation connector are “control” pins that accept contact closure or open
collector pulses to ground to select formats and to control the main fader. To change the selected format, the
corresponding pin, 1 through 7 is pulsed. Pulsing pin 8 low toggles the mute state. Pins 1 through 10 are internally
pulled up to +8.4V. They each source 400uA when grounded. An automation input control pin needs to be pulled
below 2.6V for 50ms or more for the JSD-60 to recognize it as low. A +5V at 100mA is available on pin 13 to drive
an external remote fader control (JSDV-80). Pin 12 is the “automation return.” Use this as the low side of switches
and indicators instead of using chassis ground. It is ground through a 10 ohm resistor to limit ground loop current.
RS-232 Interface
The RS-232 interface appears on a DE9F connector on the rear panel. The connector is wired as a DCE device. A
command interpreter accepts ASCII commands (described in Appendix B) over the RS-232 and Ethernet
interfaces. The RS-232 port operates at 38.4kbps, 8N1 (8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit), no handshake. RTS/CTS
and DTR/DSR are looped back.
Ethernet Interface
The JSD-60 includes a standard 10/100Mbps Ethernet interface. The same automation commands (described in
Appendix B) are available on TCP connections to port 10001 on the Ethernet interface. The JSD-60 accepts up to 5
simultaneous TCP connections, allowing multiple control and monitor devices to be used. The Ethernet interface
also includes a web server. System status and basic control are available on internally generated web
pages. System status is also available over SNMP. The JSD-60 also includes a Network Time Protocol (NTP) client
that can be used to keep the internal real time clock accurate. Use a CAT5 or better Ethernet cable to connect the
JSD-60 to the control network.
7.
Graphical User Interface Configuration
System Configuration using the Graphical User Interface
The graphical user interface (GUI) allows for configuration and
monitoring of the JSD-60. When installed, the JSD-60 GUI programs
item and a desktop shortcut are created. The application is located
in the c:\Programs (x86)\USL\JSD-60 Cinema Processor folder. The
JSD-60 SetIP utility, User Manual, and DPInst64 USB driver are
located in this folder.
7.1
GUI File Organization
The GUI installer places the executable program files in the Programs
(x86) \USL\JSD-60 directory. Configuration files are placed in
Documents\USL\JSD-60 as shown.
The EQ Curves directory holds data for generating limit curves
for the RTA and automatic equalization. Standard curve data
for several auditorium sizes are provided. Since these are plain
text files, custom limit curves can be easily created.
Page 18
The Microphone Library holds calibration data on microphones used on the RTA. A separate file can be
created for each microphone used with the system. The file includes the required preamp gain and
frequency response adjustment.
The Speaker Library holds crossover configuration files for a wide range of biamp speaker systems. These
are also text files, so appropriate crossover settings for additional speaker systems can be created using a
text editor such as Note Pad.
See Appendix E for configuration file formats.
7.2
GUI Installation
The GUI runs under Windows® XP, Windows® 7, or Windows® 8 operating systems. Insert the supplied CD and
follow the on-screen instructions.
Note: The USB driver needs to be installed after the GUI is installed. Follow the USB Driver Installation instructions
on the next page.
Note: Windows XP installs a driver for a particular USB port and when connected to a different port, the user must
repeat the installation process, suggest executing the install process on all ports.
USB Driver Installation
The JSD-60 uses a native Windows USB System (winusb.sys) driver that is part of the operating system’s installation
package. The driver is installed by using a co-installer that specifies that it will be working with the JSD-60.
Installation with Windows 8, requires setting the start up to run with “Driver Signature Enforcement Disabled.” The
JSD-60 Installation (Setup) program creates a subfolder called “WinUSB_Drivers” that will be used for loading the
new WinUSB driver. This folder contains two subfolder “x86” and “amd64” with the driver version for the
operating system type 32 and 64 bit.
Windows 7 USB Driver Installation
Located in the WinUSB_Drivers folder in the installation disk or in the installed program files(x86) folder, there are
two version of DPInst32 and DPInst64 utilities.
For Windows 7 64bit used the “Start” button to open “All Programs” and navigate to USL\JSD-60 Cinema
Processor and run DPInst64.exe. For Windows 7 32bit use File Explorer to open “C:Program Files\USL\JSD60\WindUSB_Drivers” and run DPInst32.exe.
An installation dialog window will appear, activate “Next” to proceed.
A warning message box will appear. Select to continue the installation anyway option.
The installation dialog will indicate an installation status and a final close button will appear. If the installation
fails, use device manager as described in the Windows XP installation section.
Windows 8 USB Driver Installation
To install the JSD-60 USB driver, the start up settings must be changed to disable driver signature enforcement.

activate the “Restart” option from the pop-up menu.
The “Choose an Option” screen will appear, select the “Troubleshoot” option.
In the “Troubleshoot” screen select the “Advanced Options” item.
Page 19
Next from the “Advanced Options” screen, select “Startup Settings.” In the next screen, activate the “Restart”
button.
The Windows operating system will then reboot and will display the “Startup Settings” screen. Press the “F7”
key to select “Disable driver signature enforcement.” Windows will then complete the startup process.
After Windows has finished starting up, activate the Charms menu and select “Search” with the settings
selected.
In the settings search box enter “Device Manager.” The results of the search will be displayed in the left side of
the screen, choose “Device Manager.”
The next series of instructions are the same for Windows XP; continue with the steps in the next paragraph.
JSD-60 USB Windows XP/8 Driver Installation
For Windows XP and 7, launch the Device Manager.
Update the JSD-60 USB Driver:
Connect the USB cable to the JSD-60 with it powered up and then connect to the Windows computer.
Using Device Manager the driver will show up in the tree as “Others.” Expand the others node and the JSD-60
Cinema Processor device will be displayed. Select the JSD-60 Cinema Processor and right click the mouse to
activate a popup menu.
From the pop-up menu select “Properties” and then activate the “Update Driver Software” button.
A new dialog (window) will be displayed. Select “Browse my computer for driver software.” In the next dialog,
use the browse button to navigate to: “C:\Program Files (x86)\USL\JSD60\WinUSB_Driver.”
Activate the OK button, and the path just browsed will appear in the textbox. Check the include subfolders box
and then activate the next button.
In the Windows Security message box, select the “Install this driver software anyway” option.
The driver installation process commences. When completed “libusb (WinUSB) devices” will appear in the
tree in the device manager. An instance of the “USL JSD-60 Cinema Processor” will be available. If not then
verify that the JSD-60 is connected and operating.
7.3
Set IP Utility
The Set IP utility allows the user to configure the network and host name settings on the JSD-60. To run the utility
use the “Start”, “All Programs” menu to select “USL”, “JSD-60 Cinema Processor”, and “JSD60SetIP.”
Connect the host computer to the USB port on the
front of the JSD-60. The JSD-60 should appear under
the USB Device List. It is identified by which USB port
it is connected to on the host computer. Click the
JSD-60 on the found list.
Fill in the IP address, subnet mask, and gateway as
dotted decimal values. Press “Set IP” to save the
values in the JSD-60.
Fill in the network hostname for the JSD-60. The
hostname can be up to 15 characters long and
cannot contain spaces. The hostname will be
converted to upper case before being saved. Press
“Set Name” to save the value to the JSD-60.
7.4
JSD-60 Configuration
When the GUI application is started, the “Overview Screen” will be visible. This screen can show the status of
multiple JSD-60 systems on a network. The title bar shows the theater name and the screen number for that
particular JSD-60 being shown. Click “Screen 1”to bring up the details of the first (and only, at this point) JSD-60.
Page 20
The top control allows the user to navigate back to the Overview or another Screen. In the unit view, there’s a
common tool bar ribbon that is used to select functions for File Management, Communications, Unit Settings, and
Main Fader level. Below the tool bar ribbon, a front panel view displays the currently selected input and status.
The tabs are used to access a group of controls that are related and described in the title of the tab. The very
bottom of the unit view shows, a number of system status items for the screen and JSD-60. This includes additional
information about its connection state, selected format, calibration mode, sound pressure level, and calibration
state for automatic equalization.
The GUI and the JSD-60 provide two sets of controls and two displays. For example, you can change the format on
either the JSD-60 unit or on the GUI and both will reflect the new value. If you open a configuration file when
Page 21
connected to the JSD-60, all the settings in that configuration file are sent to the JSD-60. When you connect to a
JSD-60, all the configuration settings in that unit are loaded into the GUI. It is quite possible to operate the GUI
and create configuration files without the JSD-60 being connected. Make sure the new file is saved before
connecting the JSD-60 since the connection will cause the current values in the GUI to be overwritten with the
values in the JSD-60. When the JSD-60 is connected to the GUI and a new configuration file opened, that
configuration data is copied out to the connected JSD-60.
7.5
File Management
This group of buttons detailed below deals with loading and saving configuration files from the host computer.
Configuration files are located in the Documents\USL\JSD-60 directory. The JSD-60 uses a text based configuration
file that can be viewed with an editor such as Note Pad. The settings saved to the removable SD memory card are
also text based and can be loaded into the JSD-60 via the Open file operation.
•
•
•
New. Pressing “New” creates a new configuration file with all settings at their default values. It does not
change the settings in the JSD-60 or in the GUI view of the JSD-60. You can use this as a starting point for
configuring a new system (you could also use open Default.j60, as described below). You will be presented
with a “save as” dialog prompting for a name of the new configuration file to be written.
Open. Pressing “Open” allows you to load an existing configuration file. Use Default.j60 to load the factory
defaults. You can then revise the settings and save them under another filename. Note that you may specify
either a “*.j60” or “*.CFG” under file types. The GUI saves files with the j60 extionsion. The SD card uses as
CFG extension.
Save. The “Save” button prompts for the filename under which the configuration data is to be saved. Data can
be restored on a connected unit by using the Open button.
7.6
Communications
This group of buttons sets communications parameters between the GUI and the JSD-60 and allows connections to
be set up or removed from the discovered list.
•
•
Connect. The GUI connects to the JSD-60 specified in the Comm Settings dialog over the specified link.
Disconnect. The GUI disconnects from the currently viewed JSD-60. When the Disconnect button is pressed,
the GUI will ask if you want to save changes to the JSD-60. When “Save Changes” is selected, the current
configuration will be saved to flash memory and will be reloaded the next time the JSD-60 is powered up. If
Save To SD Card is checked, the configuration will be saved to both the SD card and the flash memory when
the Save Changes button is pressed. If “Save Changes” is not selected, the current configuration will not be
saved. Instead, the previous configuration will be loaded on the next power up.
Comm Settings
Press this button to configure the communications link to the JSD-60. The
JSD-60 GUI can communicate with the JSD-60 over Ethernet (TCP/IP),
USB, or RS-232. Click on the appropriate tab for the unit to connect to. If
you find the GUI on occasion disconnects from the JSD-60, try clicking the
Advanced button and increase each of the timeout values. This may be
required on a slow network.
TCP/IP
Check "Display automatically detected network devices" to get a list of
JSD-60 units the GUI can find on the network. Any device ever found is
listed (they do not disappear if they have not been heard from in a while).
Select the appropriate unit from the list or click "Manual Add" to specify
an IP address for a JSD-60. Use the "Remove" button to remove a
displayed unit from the list. The “Remove All” will clear the list, and the
user will need to allow time for the discovery process to find units on the
network and add them automatically. Once the desired unit is selected,
Page 22
press OK to exit the dialog.
USB
Select this tab to connect to the JSD-60 using USB. When the host computer is connected to the JSD-60 USB port,
the JSD-60 should be listed in the device list. If the "Connect to first available USB device" is checked, the first
device (and probably the only device) on the list will be selected. If it is not checked, select the appropriate device,
and then click OK.
RS-232
Select the COM port the JSD-60 is connected to, and then click OK.
7.7
Unit Settings
This group of buttons handles a few “system wide” system configuration settings and backing up those settings.
Channel Config
Use Channel Config to configure the JSD-60 based on the speaker configuration in the
auditorium. Note that menu items will change based on the options installed in the JSD60. The last pair of channels can be configured for a 7.1SDDS installation, which has Lc
and Rc speakers. These last two channels could alternatively drive rear surround speakers
(Lrs and Rrs) by choosing 7.1DS. Any change in the channel configuration will result in
default channel mix for than configuration being loaded. This will overwrite any custom
mix.
In the transition to digital cinema, the industry is adopting new names and abbreviations
for speaker locations. Generally, the first letter is capitalized and either L for left, C for
center or R for right. The second and third letters, if present, are lower case and further
define the position.

The JSD-60 is configured for the particular speaker configuration in the auditorium. Each format is then configured
as to how the speakers in that auditorium are driven. For example, when an auditorium is configured for 7.1DS,
which includes rear surround speakers, and 5.1 content is played, the rear surround speakers can be driven by the
surround channels, or a mix of the surround channels.
Channel number and output labeling are shown in the following table. It illustrates the relationship between the

The drive in channel configuration setting is used for outdoor theaters that are equipped with a stereo FM
transmitter and field speakers for in-vehicle listening. Additional outputs are for the snack bar speakers and
monitor. In this configuration, the main fader only controls the snack bar outputs. All other outputs (transmitter,
field speaker, etc.) remain at the levels set by the corresponding output trim controls.

5.1 Channel Configuration
When configured for 5.1, JSD-60 outputs 7 and 8 are not used. The first six channels of the AES/EBU input carry 5.1
audio from the digital cinema server. AES/EBU channel 7 may be used to drive the HI output. AES/EBU channel 8
may be used to drive the VI-N output. The exact channel mapping is set on the Advanced tab.
5.1 Biamp Channel Configuration
This channel configuration option only appears when the JSD-60 is configured with a crossover output board. This
interface board routes the left, center, and right high bands to an additional output connected. When 5.1 biamp
configuration is selected, the crossover controls in the crossover tab are enabled. The HI and VI-N source can be
configured for AES/EBU channels 7 and 8.
7.1 SDDS Channel Configuration
The 8 channel sources for AES/EBU map directly to the 8 outputs, left, left center, center, LFE, right center, right,
left surround, and right surround. The sources for HI and VI-N are configurable via the channel mixer available in
the advance tab. The JSD-60 can generate HI. VI-N is not available.
7.1 DS Channel Configuration
The 8 channel sources for AES/EBU map directly to the 8 outputs, left, right, center, LFE, left surround, right
surround, left rear surround, right rear surround. The sources for HI and VI-N are configurable via the channel
mixer available in the advance tab. The JSD-60 can generate HI. VI-N is not available.
7.1 DS Biamp Channel Configuration
This channel configuration option only appears when the JSD-60 is configured with a crossover output board. This
interface board routes the left, center, and right high bands to an additional output connected. When 7.1 DS
biamp configuration is selected, the crossover controls in the crossover tab are enabled. The 8 channel sources for
Page 25
AES/EBU map directly to the 8 outputs, left, right, center, LFE, left surround, right surround, left rear surround,
right rear surround. The JSD-60 can generate HI. VI-N is not available.
Headroom
The headroom setting adjusts the system gain so the nominal level is a specified number of dB below the digital
clipping level (0 dBFS). Generally, headroom is set at 26dB. If several bands of equalization are set to high levels of
boost, you may wish to increase the headroom to avoid clipping.
FLASH Save Settings
Pressing this button saves the current configuration to flash memory inside the JSD-60. The JSD-60 will load this
configuration the next time it is powered up. Because of the importance of saving the configuration, you are also
given another opportunity to save the settings when disconnecting from the JSD-60.
SD Card Backup
Pressing this button writes the current configuration to the SD or MMC card plugged in behind the removable
panel on the rear of the JSD-60. If the cover is removed, you will see a red LED to the left of the card light as the
card is written. A backup to the SD card can fail if no card is present, if the card is write protected, or if the card is
not formatted correctly (FAT16 or FAT32). The data written on the card is a series of commands in a text file
(JSD60.CFG). If a JSD-60 needs to be swapped out, the SD/MMC card can be moved from the old unit to the new
unit to copy all the old settings to the new unit. To load data from the SD/MMC card, hold down buttons 6 and 7
(Non/Sync and MIC) when turning the JSD-60 main power switch on. Continue to hold the buttons down until the
bypass LED stops flashing.
7.8
Main Fader
The current main fader level can be viewed and changed using the slider. These are equivalent to the front panel
main fader knob and display. The fader level display also shows a small bar graph that displays the output level on
each channel. In most channel configurations, the main fader adjusts all outputs except HI and VI-N. However, in
the Drive In configuration the main fader does not adjust the outputs driving the transmitter, field speakers, or
monitor. See channel configuration for details about fader bypass channels.
7.9
Front Panel View
Below the buttons described in section 7.4 is a view of the JSD-60 front panel. When connected to the JSD-60, this
view duplicates the look of the front panel. In addition, the buttons can be pressed to change format or mute the
system, just as on the front panel. The LED above the format button lights when that format is selected. It flashes
if the format is a digital format and no digital signal is present on the selected input.
7.10
Tabs
The remainder of the GUI window contains tabs that divide the remaining configuration data into logical groups.
Each tab will be discussed in the following sections.
Page 26
7.10.1 Summary Tab
The “Summary” tab (shown above) gives an overview of the JSD-60. The Theater Information fields may be
changed as needed for the unit’s installation details. The other sections of this screen cannot be changed. These
are unit settings and inform the user about the hardware configurations, firmware, and network connection
information.
Theater Information
The data in the theater information fields is not used by the JSD-60, but is stored in the JSD-60 for the convenience
of the user. Fill in the desired information. This data will be saved with other configuration information in the JSD60 and displayed the next time the unit is connected to. When viewing the Overview, the Theater Name will
appear in the title for each screen.
Component Information
Various pieces of information about the JSD-60 are shown here. The Output Type identifies an output option card
installed. By default, the output option will indicate “Analog 8.” Included in this group are the board and firmware
versions. The version of the Windows application is shown in the GUI Version field.
Network Information
This is the network information that was set with the JSD-60 Set IP Utility, discussed Section 7.3.
Page 27
7.10.2 Formats Tab
The “Formats” tab allows the setting of “Per-Format” configuration. These settings apply only to a specific format.
The type of settings available varies by format type. Select the format that is to be configured using the format
buttons on the GUI or the JSD-60 front panel. Additional options are available on the Advanced tab that provides
options for selecting input source, decode options, and channel mixes on a per-format selection.
Input Trim
The input trim control is only available for the stereo Non/Sync and monaural Microphone inputs. It provides a
means to control the input level.
Preset
Preset level – The JSD-60 will adjust the maid fader to the preset level when the preset.
Last level – The JSD-60 will adjust the main fader to the last level used on the format when this format is
selected again.
None – The JSD-60 will not change its main fader level when this format is selected.
NOTE that presets can only be changed through the GUI. This feature prevents unauthorized people from changing
the presets. You may want to use “Last Level” to allow local personnel to adjust playback levels. The main fader
level will return to the last level used on that format.
Input Delay
A separate input delay setting is available for each format to enable precise synchronization of the audio with the
projected image.
Page 28
7.10.3 Equalizer Tab
The JSD-60 equalizer allows the frequency response of the JSD-60 to be adjusted for the acoustics of the room. The
RTA screen shows the measured sound pressure level (SPL), the measured level in each 1/3 octave spectrum band,
and limit lines for the desired equalization. By default, the limit lines correspond to the SMPTE ST 202:2010 limits
for a 500 seat auditorium. Other limit sets can be displayed (see Curve File, below). The equalizer tab also allows
access to the automatic equalization feature of the JSD-60.
RTA Channel Select Buttons
Channel select buttons are along the top of the RTA window. These select which speaker the generator is driving
and which channel the equalizer controls are adjusting. If an external pink noise generator is to be used with the
internal RTA, enable the internal pink noise generator, then disable it. Enabling the internal pink noise generator
configures the internal RTA for proper operation.
RTA View Controls
To preserve screen real estate, the working area for the RTA data displayed is maximized. When the equalizer tab
is selected, the size of the tab is increased by collapsing the input format buttons view. As the mouse is hovered
over the RTA graphical plot area, a set of controls is revealed. The controls are zoom, dB step size, decay rate,
plotting data offset, and x-curve offset. Use the Zoom buttons to enlarge or reduce the text within the RTA display
area. Use the dB/step selector to adjust the vertical resolution as required view all bands on screen while
providing the best vertical resolution. Make initial adjustments with a fast decay time. The fast decay time
provides a faster update, but a less stable display. As you close in on the final adjustment of the equalizer, increase
the decay time towards maximum to provide a stable display and precise indication of the equalization. Use the
Data Offset control to slide the RTA data up and down as required to place it within the X-curve limits. Similarly,
the X-Curve control can be used to move the limit curves up and down to best fit the RTA data.
SPL Meter
The auditorium SPL is visible along the bottom of the GUI window, no
matter which tab is selected. The display will show "SPL Uncalibrated"
until the SPL meter is calibrated by reading in an existing microphone
calibration file or adjusting the SPL calibration with a reference pink noise
level. The SPL meter uses a C-weighted filter as per ANSI S1.4-1983.
Microphone Calibration
Press this button to calibrate the microphone driving the RTA. Turn on pink
noise in the auditorium. Adjust the Microphone Gain control until the
indicated SPL matches the SPL indicated on a reference meter. Press Save to
save this calibration to a file. The file name might consist of the manufacturer's model number and microphone
Page 29
serial number. The RTA gain setting required for the proper SPL
indication is saved. See Appendix E for information on the
microphone calibration file format.
Equalizer Copy
Press this button to copy equalizer settings from one channel to
another. Choose the source and destination, and then click the
Copy button that appears. The destination channel can be more
than a single channel.
Generator
Press the Generator button to turn the generator on or off. Use
the adjacent Pink, 100Hz, 1kHz, 10kHz, and Sweep buttons to select the type of generator output. Auditorium
equalization typically uses pink noise. When the generator is selected, the format changes to 8 channel digital and
the channel filters are turned off.
Auto EQ
The JSD-60 includes automatic equalization for all channels except LFE. See section 7.7.2.1 for instructions on
operating the auto EQ feature of the JSD-60. A description of the system is included here.
Auto EQ is not enabled until the RTA microphone has been calibrated or a microphone calibration file has been
loaded. Once the microphone is calibrated and a channel is selected, the Auto EQ goes through the following
process:

Disables the channel filter.
Set equalizer to flat.
Adjust main fader to 0.0.
Adjust channel output trim to -20dB.
Listen for quiet. Abort if SPL too high (room not quiet).
Turn on pink noise.
Increase main fader towards 7.0 while ensuring the SPL does not exceed the SPL equalization will be run at
(EQSPL in the AutoEQ.ini file, typically 80dB).
Adjust output trim up until SPL reaches target. Abort if trim increase does not result in SPL increase.
Normalize RTA data to place majority of RTA bands within limit curves.
Adjust equalizer as required to put all bands at desired RTA level.
Smooth equalizer settings to avoid large transitions between adjacent bands while keeping RTA data within
limits.
Adjust output trim to target SPL. The target SPL is specified in AutoEQ.ini as StageSPL and SurroundSPL,
typically 85dB and 82dB, respectively.
The pink noise is left on to allow final manual adjustments.
Flatten
Press this button to return the equalization to flat (all bands at 0dB).
Curve File
Press this button to load a curve file from the “Documents/ USL/JSD-60/EQ Curves” directory. The installer placed
several curve files for different sized auditoriums in this directory. Current practice is to use one of the X-Curve
files, based on auditorium size. If a custom equalization curve is required, use one of the existing files as a template
to create new curve limit file using a text editor. See Appendix E for the Curve File Format.
Page 30
Filters Tab
The channel filter settings are available in the filters tab. A filter response plot is displayed and updated when the
settings are changed.
The channel filter is typically not used (set to Off). A couple uses are describe below.
In a 7.1SDDS auditorium (one that includes Lc/Rc speakers), it is desirable to generate Lc/Rc when 5.1 content
(which does not have these channels) is played. Lc can be generated by mixing L and C on the Advanced tab.
Similarly, Rc can be generated from R and C. To prevent undesirable spreading of dialog, the channel filter can be
set to notch out the dialog frequency range on the Lc and Rc channels.
On the LFE channel, a high pass filter may be added with a Q greater than 0.71 to add a “bump” in the low
frequency response. This can be used to slightly extend the low end of the LFE channel.
Channel Selection
A list of channel selections is displayed above the filter response graphic plot. This plot focuses on the channel
filter parameters within the audio processing chain. The final output will have additional filtering, equalization, and
crossover settings applied. For instance on the LFE the output will have a low pass applied and higher frequencies
will be significantly attenuated.
Zoom
A zoom control is used to expand the plot view to review details in the filter settings. As the zoom control is
increased, the plot will be centered to within the graphical plot area.
Filter Type
The filters can be cascaded to create a band pass filter or placed in parallel to create a notch filter. There are two
filters that are used to create a low pass, high pass, notch, band pass, and off. For the high and low pass
arrangement, a filter is removed (turned off) in the audio processing stream.
Low/High Filter Parameters
Each filter has frequency and Q settings. For a band pass filter, the low pass filter will set the upper frequency
limit, and the high pass filter will control the lower limit.
Page 31
Crossovers
The Crossover Tab is used to configure crossovers and other outputs where a single channel drives multiple band
outputs (see section 4.2 for block diagrams showing crossovers and other outputs). In this view there is response
curve plot that is used to provide feedback for the crossover settings. The actual response can be viewed by
selecting the RTA view.
Along the top of the Crossover Tab display are buttons that select which channel the current display applies to.
Note that all channels are listed, including those where no crossover controls are available. If a channel without
crossover controls is selected, the controls will be "grayed out."
The View buttons select a filter frequency response view or an RTA view. You can watch how the controls affect
the filters within the JSD-60 or how they affect the sound in the auditorium. If an external pink noise generator is
to be used with the internal RTA, enable the internal pink noise generator, then disable it. Enabling the internal
pink noise generator configures the internal RTA for proper operation.
The Speaker button opens a file select dialog where you can select a speaker type from the speaker library. This
loads all the crossover settings with values appropriate for that speaker. Once a speaker is selected, you can select
which screen channels to apply these crossover settings to.
The Copy button allows you to copy the crossover settings from one channel to one or more additional channels.
The Zoom slider changes the number of dB per vertical grid line on the graph. This control is only visible when
viewing the filter response, not the RTA.
The filters in each crossover band are described in section 4.2. Note that frequencies are in Hz, gains in dB, and
delays in ms. The filter types are abbreviated as LP for Low Pass filter, HP for High Pass filter, PEQ for Parametric
EQualizer, HEQ for the high frequency Horn shelf EQualizer, and SEQ for the high frequency Screen shelf EQualizer.
The Mute and Invert buttons mute a particular band output or invert the phase. The figure below shows the
"crossover" settings for an LFE output. Depending on the output module type, one or more LFE outputs are
available. Each has a separate parametric equalizer that can be adjusted in the Equalizer tab view. Note that the
Page 32
filter plot of the LFE channel includes the effect of the 125Hz low pass filter specified for the LFE channel in SMPTE
EG0432-2-2006. In this view the gain and delay for each LFE can be adjusted (LFE1 and LFE2).
7.10.4 Outputs Tab
The Outputs tab provides a method of trimming the output level of each audio channel, muting the channel,
inverting the phase, or driving it with a generator (pink noise, tone, or a tone sweep). These controls are generally
set one by one from the Equalizer tab. This tab makes all the settings visible at once. In addition, this output tab
allows the user to name each of the channels. The name above each control can be changed as desired. This
information is saved in the JSD-60 and will be restored to the GUI the next time this particular unit is connected to.
The number of output channels is dependent on the channel configuration, for instance if 5.1 is selected, then the
number of output channels is changed to 5.1 (no left or right rear surrounds). A surround delay for each channel
pair can be adjusted for surround channels. The surround delay is set usually based on the length and width of the
auditorium. Formulas to determine the surround delay with auditorium Length and Width in meters and feet are
provided below.
Page 33
Surround Delay Using Meters
With Length and Width of the auditorium in meters, the surround delay, in ms, should be (L/3)-(W/6)+20.
Surround Delay Using Feet
With Length and Width of the auditorium in feet, the surround delay, in ms, should be set to L-(W/2)+20.
7.10.5 Global Tab
Global settings, those
that do not change
with format, are set or
displayed here.
Unit Time
The time settings in
the unit can be
observed in Unit Time
group box in the global
tab. The current unit’s
date, UTC time, and
time zone offset are
displayed.
The
abbreviations for standard and daylight saving time, and whether daylight saving time is observed are also
displayed at this location. All time parameters are saved in the JSD-60 and are used in logging events. The unit’s
time stamps are viewed in the Logging tab or Web interface.
Set Time / Date Button
To set the unit’s time and date, the Set Time/Date button is used to open
the Set JSD-60 Date and Time window. In the window, the current UTC
time is displayed, as obtained from the host computer. The JSD-60 itself
only uses time of day in logging. Further, all log entries are made in UTC.
When viewed through the GUI, log data includes the time in UTC, the time
at the JSD-60 (JSD Time), and the time at the GUI (GUI Time). The use of
these three time zones allows for simple comparison of device logs, even
when the devices are in multiple time zones. The Date and Time dialog
allows setting of date and time data for the JSD-60. Since the JSD-60 uses
UTC time, the displayed time is UTC. If the system is using an NTP server,
you do not need to set the date and time. If no NTP server is available, set
the date and time to the current UTC time. The bottom portion of the
dialog box deals with the date and time at the JSD-60 itself. Set the Time
Zone field to the offset from UTC for standard time in the time zone where the JSD-60 is located. If daylight saving
time (summer time) is observed at the JSD-60 location, check the corresponding checkbox. Note that this checkbox
indicates whether daylight saving time is ever observed at this location, not whether it is currently in effect. For
example, you would check the checkbox in California, but uncheck it in Arizona. Fill the next two fields with the
abbreviations for standard time and daylight saving time in the time zone where the JSD-60 is located. The daylight
saving time abbreviation will not be used if the daylight saving time observed checkbox is unchecked, but you may
want to fill it in anyway. Clicking OK transmits the data to the JSD-60.

Network Time Protocol
This section also allows the IP address of the Network Time Protocol server to be set and enabled or disabled. If an
NTP server is available on the network, enter its IP address, check NTP Enable, and press the Set IP button.
SNMP Community Settings
This section allows the Write and Read community settings to be viewed or changed. The JSD-60 does not
currently use the write community setting since the JSD-60 cannot be controlled over SNMP, only monitored. The
contact, system description, and location information reported over SNMP can also be set. Read and Write
community strings are limited to 8 characters each. Contact, description, and location are limited to 39 characters
each.
Unit Status
This portion of the global tab shows the temperature within the JSD-60, whether the optional DI-84 board is
present, and the status of AES/EBU inputs. The DI-84 board is required to decode Dolby Digital® and DTS from two
channel inputs. AES/EBU status is read every two to three seconds, and the status indicators are updated. Green
indicates the parameter is true. Red indicates it is false. Gray indicates it cannot be determined. As noted AES 4
may indicate a red status when a digital two-channel or encoded multichannel (COAX and TOSLINK) source is idle
and not streaming audio data. When the audio is present, the sampling rate is indicated next to the decode status
results.
Power On Format
These buttons determine which format will be selected the next time the JSD-60 is powered up. The power on
format can be a specific format or can be the format that was active when the JSD-60 was powered off.
7.10.6 Advanced Tab
Analog and digital inputs to the JSD-60 need to be routed to the appropriate outputs based on the selected format,
the auditorium speaker configuration (channel config), and stereo decode options. This is often done with a switch
matrix, but the JSD-60 uses a mixer matrix. The mixer matrix allows inputs to be routed to outputs or combinations
of inputs to be scaled and routed to outputs. The scaling factors (mixer coefficients) may range from -100% to +
100%. A mixer coefficient is set to 100% to route the input to the output at full level. It is set to 0% to not use that
particular input on the output. It is set to -100% to route the input to the output with the phase reversed. Inputs
can be combined in various ratios to synthesize an output. For example, left and center can be combined to
generate Lc. Left, center, and right are combined to generate HI. When using the simple matrix decode option, to
generate surrounds from a stereo source, left and right are combined with opposite phase to generate the
surround channel.
Changing the channel configuration, input source, or stereo decode method source will reload the mixer
coefficients. You can modify these to create a custom format, but do not change the channel configuration, input
source, or stereo decode method after changing the mixer configuration. Otherwise your changes will be
overwritten with the default coefficient values.
Page 35
Input Name
The name that is shown on the display and logged when a particular format is selected can be set by the user. Type
a meaningful name for the format in the Input Name field.
Decode Options
With the DI-84 option (JSD-60D or
JSD-60DX) the active matrix decode
option is available. The Active
Matrix decodes two channel
sources to 5.1 channels. For the
L_R, L_C_R, and Simple Matrix
options, two channels are routed to
the channel mixer. As shown there
are multiple channels that can be supplied audio from a two channel source. Dolby Digital® or DTS encoded
content can only be played if a DI-84 board is present and Active Matrix is selected. Attempting to play Dolby
Digital® or DTS encoded content without the DI-84 board will mute the audio. The following table contains the
default channel mix for the selected decode options.
Decode Option
L_R
L_C_R
Simple Matrix
Active Matrix
Description
The two channel source drives just the left and right speakers.
The left and right channels of the source drive the left and right speakers. The center speaker
is driven with 0.707 times the sum of the left and right channels. The LFE channel is driven
with the center channel with the SMPTE EG 432-2-2006 125 HZ low pass filter.
The front speakers are driven with the same signals as L_C_R, described above. The surround
speakers are driven with 0.707 times the difference between left and right (0.707(L-R)).
This option is only available if a DI-84 board is installed in the JSD-60. If the input is digital and
encoded with Dolby Digital® or DTS, the signal is decoded to 5.1. If the signal is two-channel
analog or PCM (not encoded with Dolby Digital®), the signal is decoded to 5.1 using an active
matrix.
HI/VI-N Source
The HI output can be driven by a discrete input (such as AES/EBU channel 7) , LR, LCR, or a custom mix (see
Channel Mixer in the Advanced tab). Most auditoriums are wired to put HI on AES channel 7 since that is where
the HI track is located in an Interop DCP. VI-N is typically placed on AES/EBU 8. Note that VI-N is only available on
the 8 channel digital format in 5.1 auditoriums, since it is delivered on AES/EBU channel 8. HI can be derived from
Page 36
an LCR mix or delivered by AES/EBU channel 7. Since not all content (especially trailers) has HI on AES/EBU channel
7 and that channel is used for main sound in 7.1 auditoriums, the use of an LCR mix is suggested. The default
settings load the mixer coefficients in this manner.
7.10.7 Software Update Tab
The firmware in the main board, front panel, and digital signal processor in the JSD-60 can be updated through the
GUI, over Ethernet or USB. The current firmware versions running can be viewed in the Summary tab in the
Component Information group and on the right side in the Software Update tab. The left side of the software
update tab contains the controls for firmware updating.
Firmware is usually delivered in a Software Package that includes new versions of the code for the all the
processors. The suggested order for updating is: Main Board, Front Panel, DSP. Look at the versions of each item
of code in the software package. If one of the versions is already installed in the JSD-60, that item need not be
updated.
Select the device to be updated: Main board PIC, digital signal processor (DSP), or front panel. Press the Browse
button to select the file to be downloaded to the JSD-60. Press the Download button. During the download, the
front panel will indicate that the unit is Updating Firmware on the JSD-60 display. After a download of the PIC (the
main processor), the JSD-60 will reset to start executing the new code. The GUI will disconnect at that time. If
connected via a USB, the cable will need to be unplugged and plugged back into the unit to restart an instance of
the USB device driver.
PIC Firmware Restore
If a download of the PIC firmware to the JSD-60 is interrupted, the JSD-60 may be left inoperable. To restore the
original firmware, turn off the JSD-60, press buttons 4 (Option) and 6 (Non/Sync) on the front, then turn the power
on while continuing to hold the buttons down. The display will show "Firmware update running" during the
firmware restore. When the restore is completed, the JSD-60 will restart. Note that this restore operation only
restores the main processor, not the front panel processor or DSP. Failed updates of the front panel or DSP can be
repeated using the GUI without the need to use this restore procedure. Ensure that firmware versions for each
processor are from the same code package.
7.10.8 Logging Tab
The JSD-60 includes extensive logging. The left side of the screen shows the GUI log. It shows GUI activity, such as
connections to JSD-60 units. The right side of the screen shows the Unit Log for the specific JSD-60.
Page 37
The JSD-60 holds a log of the last 15,000 events. Events include level changes, format changes, remote connections
by the GUI or other devices, etc. Press the Get Latest button to get the 100 most recent log entries. Press the Get
All button to get the full log from the JSD-60.
The log shows the record number in the JSD-60 log, the UTC time of the event, the “JSD Time” of the event, and
the “GUI Time” of the event. The JSD-60 stores all log events in UTC time. When the log events are displayed by
the GUI, the time at the JSD-60 is calculated based on the settings entered using the “Date & Time” button on the
Global Tab. The GUI applies the time zone offset for where the JSD-60 is located, determines if the daylight saving
time is observed where the JSD-60 is located, and whether daylight saving time is currently in effect. Based on this
data, the GUI calculates and displays the time of the event at the JSD-60. The name of the time zone (PDT in the
sample) is shown in the column header to help identify the time. The GUI also does a similar calculation to display
“GUI time” or local time for the computer running the GUI application. That is the time the event occurred at the
GUI location, which may be several time zones away from where the JSD-60 is located. The log shows the source of
the event (internal, USB Port, front panel, TCP4, etc.). When a device connects to the JSD-60 over Ethernet, the
connection and the IP address are logged. Later actions can be tied to a specific IP address by looking back
through the log for the last connection to that TCP port. The JSD-60 supports 5 simultaneous TCP connections on
TCP4 through TCP0.
Pressing the Save button saves the currently displayed log data as a tab delimited text file. This file can be
imported into a spreadsheet or viewed with a text editor.
7.10.9 Diagnostics Tab
This tab provides diagnostics that help USL personnel in debugging the system. You may be instructed by USL to
perform various functions on this tab to debug problems in the installation. The terminal section of this screen can
be used to test JSD-60 commands, such as ones an automation system can send. Click the mouse cursor in the

Channel Crossover and Equalization Procedure
Audio channel equalization consists of two steps:
1.
2.
Crossover adjustment (if crossovers used).
Channel Equalization.
7.11.1 Crossover Adjustment
A suggested crossover adjustment procedure is listed below. It should be skipped if the JSD-60 internal crossovers
are not being used. If an external pink noise generator is to be used with the internal RTA, enable the internal pink
Page 38
noise generator, then disable it. Enabling the internal pink noise generator configures the internal RTA for proper
operation.

Ensure that the proper speaker configuration biamp is selected by the Channel Config button.
Position the RTA microphone in the auditorium as specified by SMPTE ST 202:2010 (about 2/3 of the way back
from the screen and 2/3 of the way from a side wall of the auditorium). The microphone is normally 1.0 to 1.2
meters (3.3 to 4.0 feet) from the floor, or “ear level” for a typical audience member.
Plug the microphone in to the microphone input.
On the Outputs tab, slide all the level controls to minimum level.
Turn the power amplifier gains all the way down.
Set the JSD-60 fader to 7.0.
Under the Crossovers tab, press the Speaker button and select the desired speaker from the speaker library.
Under the Outputs tab, select pink noise and press the Gen button for the left channel.
Turn up the amplifier gains as far as possible without exceeding 85dB SPL in the auditorium.
On the Crossovers tab, press the View button to make the RTA display visible.
Adjust the Data Offset control (becomes visible when the cursor is over the graph area) until the RTA results
become visible on the RTA display.
Adjust the band gains as necessary for the flattest RTA response possible.
If there appears to be a notch in the response at the crossover frequencies, try pressing an Invert button to
switch the phase on a band.
Press Copy and copy the crossover settings to each of the other screen channels.
Go back to the Outputs tab, turn off the generator on the left channel and turn it on for the next channel.
Repeat the above process for each channel.
Apply an external pink noise source to left, center, or right channels of a JSD-60 input. This may be an AES/EBU
generator such as the USL DAT-100, an analog pink noise generator, or test content that has pink noise.
Set the rear panel DIP switches according to the following table:

18. Turn off the main power to put the JSD-60 into bypass operation. Note that the bypass power supply is
required for bypass operation.
19. Use the rear panel trim pots to adjust the low and high band gains as required for a relatively flat response as
shown on an external RTA. Remember that the front panel fader also adjusts the overall output level, so it
may be necessary to adjust that control.
20. Take the system out of bypass by turning the main power switch on.
7.11.2 Auditorium Equalization
The JSD-60 allows auditorium equalization to be completed automatically or manually using its precision internal
RTA. Prior to executing equalization, set the channel output trims in the outputs tab to -20 for each output
channel.
7.11.3 Automatic Equalization
1. Connect four microphones to a microphone multiplexer such as the USL MMP-10. Position the microphones as
specified in SMPTE 202-2010 sections 5.2 and 5.3.
2. Connect the microphone multiplexer output to the microphone input of the JSD-60.
3. On the Equalizer tab, press the Curve File button and select the appropriate curve file (such as x-curve 150
seats.ini). This sets the limit lines on the RTA display.
4. Press Mic File to load a previously generated microphone calibration file, or calibrate the microphones as
described below:

Set the main fader to 0.0.
Press the Flatten button.
Press Pink and Generator to drive the center channel with pink noise.
Adjust the main fader towards 7.0 without exceeding 85dB SPL in the auditorium.
Adjust the gain control at the far left of the equalizer tab to yield 85dB SPL in the auditorium as measured
with a reference SPL meter.
h. Press the Mic Cal button to bring up the microphone calibration dialog box.
i. Adjust the Microphone Gain control in the microphone calibration dialog box until the JSD SPL
measurement agrees with the reference SPL meter reading.
j. If desired, press the Save button to save this microphone calibration in a file. The use of the microphone
model number and serial number(s) as a filename is suggested.
k. Press the Generator button again to turn off the generator.
Press Auto EQ to automatically equalize this channel. The Auto EQ sequence will put up messages showing the
progress of the equalization.
Select the next channel to be equalized and press Auto EQ again. Repeat this until all channels are equalized.
7.11.4 Manual Equalization
A suggested procedure for equalizing a channel is listed below. Your theater may use a modified or different
procedure. If an external pink noise generator is to be used with the internal RTA, enable the internal pink noise
generator, then disable it. Enabling the internal pink noise generator configures the internal RTA for proper
operation.
1.
Connect four microphones to a microphone multiplexer such as the USL MMP-10. Position the microphones
as specified in SMPTE 202-2010 sections 5.2 and 5.3.
2. Connect the microphone multiplexer output to the microphone input of the JSD-60.
3. On the Equalizer tab, press the Curve File button and select the appropriate curve file (such as x-curve 150
seats.ini). This sets the limit lines on the RTA display.
4. Press Mic File to load a previously generated microphone calibration file, or calibrate the microphones as
described below:
a. On the equalizer tab, select the center channel.
b. Set the gain control at the far left of the equalizer to minimum.
c. Set the main fader to 0.0.
d. Press the Flatten button.
e. Press Pink and Generator to drive the center channel with pink noise.
f. Adjust the main fader towards 7.0 without exceeding 85dB SPL in the auditorium.
g. Adjust the gain control at the far left of the equalizer tab to yield 85dB SPL in the auditorium as measured
by a reference SPL meter.
h. Press the Mic Cal button to bring up the microphone calibration dialog box.
i. Adjust the Microphone Gain control in the microphone calibration dialog box until the JSD SPL agrees with
the reference SPL meter.
j. If desired, press the Save button to save this microphone calibration in a file. The use of the microphone
model number and serial number(s) as a filename is suggested.
k. Press the Generator button again to turn off the generator.
5. Press Flatten to load a starting point equalization unless another channel was copied to this one.
6. Turn the main fader and Gain control (on the left side of the Equalizer tab) all the way down.
7. Press the Pink Noise and Generator buttons to turn on pink noise in the auditorium.
8. Adjust the main fader towards 7.0 without exceeding the desired SPL in the auditorium (typically 85dB for
screen channels and 82dB for surround channels).
9. Adjust the Equalizer tab Gain control for the desired SPL.
10. Position the cursor in the RTA graph area to make additional controls visible. Adjust the Data Offset and XCurve controls to place the mid-band RTA levels within the curve limit lines.
Page 40
11. Adjust the Bass and Treble controls to provide the required low and high frequency response.
12. Adjust the remaining equalizer controls to put each RTA band within the limit lines. Avoid extreme variation
between adjacent equalizer values. The auditorium will generally sound best applying the least equalization
possible while remaining within the curve limit lines.
13. Adjust the Equalizer Tab gain control for the desired auditorium SPL.
14. Turn off the generator.
15. Use the copy button to copy the equalization to each of the other channels as a starting point.
16. Go back to step 6 to equalize the next channel.
7.11.5 LFE Equalization Procedure
The LFE channel uses a parametric equalizer instead of a graphic equalizer. In the below image, the leftmost Gain
control is the master LFE gain that applies to all LFE outputs. It corresponds to the LFE gain control shown on the
Outputs tab. Within each LFE box is another gain control that applies to ONLY that LFE output. The box also
contains the parametric filter controls (PEQ gain, Q, and frequency) that applies to that particular LFE output.
The GUI determines the capabilities of the particular JSD-60 hardware and only shows the appropriate number of
LFE outputs.
A suggested LFE adjustment procedure is below. Note that selecting the LFE channel in the equalizer tab does NOT
turn off pink noise on the previously selected channel. This is different than the behavior on all other channels.
This difference allows pink noise to drive the LFE and center channels simultaneously so the transition frequency
region can be viewed for possible phase errors. When the LFE channel is selected on the equalizer tab, a warning
box (shown in the image below) will appear if pink noise is currently driving another channel. The procedure below
drives the LFE and center channels simultaneously.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
On the Equalizer tab, select the Center channel, Pink noise, and turn on the generator. Pink noise should be
visible on the RTA based on the equalization done in the previous section.
Select the LFE channel. The warning box should appear indicating that the center channel is also being driven.
At this point, pink noise is driving both the center and LFE channels.
Adjust the leftmost (master) gain control until the LFE level matches the mid-band level of the center channel
on the RTA display.
Adjust the frequency control to the worst dip or peak in the LFE portion of the RTA display.
Set the Q to 4 and adjust the PEQ gain as required to remove the peak or dip. The Q can be increased to make
the peak or notch narrower, or decreased to make it wider. The frequency can be adjusted as required to
center the peak or notch on the notch or peak displayed on the RTA.
If desired, a higher pass filter can be enabled under the filters tab adjusted to add a bit more low frequency
range. Try increasing the Q above the default 0.707, then adjust the frequency as required to yield a flatter LFE
response. A Q above 0.707 adds a peak at the filter cutoff frequency before the rolloff begins.
If there is a notch in the transition region between the LFE and center channel frequencies, try reversing the
phase on the LFE channel (Invert button on the Stage Out tab).
Finally, adjust the leftmost gain control up to increase the LFE output as required. SMPTE RP 200-2002 calls for
LFE to be 10dB above the center channel, but this may be excessive in some auditoriums.
If the JSD-60 has multiple LFE outputs, the individual PEQ controls can be adjusted similarly.

8.1
Front Panel
The input select buttons choose which input is to drive the auditorium speakers. The LED above the button will
light when that input is selected. If the selected input is digital, but no digital signal is available, the LED will flash.
Pressing the “mute” button controls muting of the auditorium speakers. The LED above the button is lit when the
system is muted.
The display shows the current main fader level, the user defined name of the currently selected format, and a bar
graph showing the audio levels on each output. The number of bars and the labels under the bars varies with
Page 42
speaker configuration. When the speaker configuration includes use of the JSD-60 internal crossovers, the bar
graph shows the low band in yellow, and the high band in blue. Full range outputs (such as the surround channels,
HI, VI-N) are shown in green.
The Main Fader adjusts the output volume. As it is adjusted, the display is updated to show the new fader level.
Note that the fader level will generally change on a format change.
The main power switch turns the JSD-60 on and off. When the power is off, the JSD-60 enters bypass mode if the
bypass power supply is plugged in. The bypass system in the JSD-60 uses completely separate electronics to
generate a monaural signal that drives the left and right main audio outputs. The front panel switches and fader
operate the same in bypass and normal modes. All inputs except microphone are available in bypass mode.
8.2
Automation
The JSD-60 accepts external control (such as automation) over Ethernet, RS-232, and a parallel automation port.
The JSD-60 accepts up to 5 simultaneous TCP connections on port 10001. A digital cinema server can send
commands to the JSD-60 through a TCP connection. The command structure is described in Appendix B.
The JSD-60 accepts commands over the RS-232 port. The hardware interface is described in the installation
section. The commands are described in Appendix B.
The JSD-60 accepts parallel automation pulses on the DB25F rear panel automation connector. Pulsing pin 1 to
ground is the same as pushing the first button on the front panel (COAX 1). Pulsing pin 2 to ground is the
same as pushing the second button. The parallel automation interface is described in more detail in Section
6.7.
8.3
System Monitoring
A large number of JSD-60 systems can be monitored simultaneously over Ethernet. Multiple units can be
monitored and controlled using the GUI. Multiple units can be monitored and controlled using a web browser as
well. The web interface duplicates the front panel controls, allowing selection of input, setting fader level, and
muting the system. In the GUI overview, each auditorium or screen for a given theater can be grouped for easier
management of different locations (theaters). Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is available for
monitoring multiple units. The SNMP settings are available in the Global tab view.
8.3.1
GUI View of Multiple JSD-60s
The GUI main screen provides an overview of several JSD-60 systems. Systems are normally broken into groups
representing theaters. Each group contains the individual JSD-60 systems for each auditorium. To setup the
management of multiple units, they will need to be configured with Theater Name or location and a Screen
number. Matching Theater Names will be used to group the units for a location. The Screen number is used for
identifying a JSD-60 within a Theater or location (complex).
Page 43
Adding Auditoriums
In the Overview, the “Auditoriums” button will display the management screen. This allows the user to either
manually add auditoriums or to automatically discover and add them using the Theater Name and Screen Number
to populate a list.
To add auditoriums to the Overview, do the following:
Click the “Auditoriums” button. The Manage Auditoriums dialog box will appear.
As mentioned, the user can either manually or automatically add auditoriums.
The name of the auditorium can be changed as desired. A suggested auditorium name is 123-12 where 123 is
the theater number and 12 is the screen number. When multiple auditoriums are listed along the GUI title bar,
this name will be used. Use of theater number - auditorium number makes it easy to identify which
auditorium is which. Use the Auto-Add button to discover the JSD-60s for a number of screens. The list of
discovered or manually added JSD-60’s is shown in the left of the dialog.
To group the JSD-60s by a theater name click the Auto Group button.
If an auditorium is manually added, click “Change” under Communications Settings to set the IP address of the
JSD-60 in this auditorium.
Press “OK” to exit Comm Settings and OK to exit Auditoriums.
Once groups and auditoriums are defined, the GUI shows a summary view of each JSD-60 on the network. The
summary view includes the selected format, the fader level, and communications settings. Clicking on the
summary view box brings up the detailed view of that particular JSD-60 where all controls are available.
Manually Adding Groups
The group is a collection of JSD-60s, one in each auditorium.
Click the “Groups” button at the top of the screen.
Click “Add”. You will be prompted to enter the name of the new
group.
Click “OK” when you have finished adding groups.
JSD-60 Web Interface
The JSD-60 includes a web server. The web server can be used to control
the JSD-60, view the current status of the JSD-60, view the log, and upload
new firmware.
The status page shows the current fader level, the current format, a bar
graph showing the audio output levels, auditorium information and
Page 44
network information. It also has buttons to select input format, adjust fader level, and mute or unmute the
system.
The log page shows the JSD-60 system log. A portion of a typical log page is shown below. Note that three time
zones are listed: UTC Time, GUI Time, and JSD Time. JSD Time and GUI time make adjustments for daylight saving
time based on whether daylight saving time is currently in effect at the GUI location. Since the observation of
daylight saving time varies, there is no guarantee that this setting will also be correct at the JSD-60 location.
Clicking the time zone abbreviation at the top of the JSD time column will reload the log page toggling whether
daylight saving time is used in the JSD time column. Click this as necessary for proper display of the time at the JSD60.
Page 45
The Update Firmware page allows the firmware running on the main PIC, front panel PIC, digital signal processor.
To be updated, the username is “admin” and the password is “ultra”.
Firmware is usually delivered in a software package that includes new versions of the code for each processor. The
suggested order for updating is: Main, Front, DSP. Look at the versions of each piece of code in the software
package. If one of the versions is already installed in the JSD-60, that portion of the JSD-60 does not need to be
updated. The currently installed firmware version is shown on the Update button for each processor.
Press the appropriate “Browse” button to select the file to be downloaded to the JSD-60. Press the appropriate
“Update” button. During the update, the front panel display will show the “Updating Firmware” message. After
an update of the main processor, the JSD-60 will reset to start executing the new code. The browser will
disconnect at that time.
If a download of the PIC firmware to the JSD-60 is interrupted, the JSD-60 may be left inoperable. To restore the
original firmware, turn off the JSD-60, press buttons 4 (Option) and 6 (Non/Sync) on the front, then turn the power
on while continuing to hold the buttons down until the front shows the “Updating Firmware” message. When the
code has been restored, the display will reinitialize as the JSD-60 restarts. This only restores the main PIC firmware,
not the DSP and front panel firmware. Ensure the versions for each are from the same code package.
8.4.1
SNMP Monitoring
The JSD-60 includes an SNMP agent that can be used with an SNMP network manager or MIB browser to monitor
the status of the JSD-60. The MIB describing the JSD-60 is located at http://JSD-60/JSD60.MIB. Substitute the IP
address of the JSD-60 for JSD-60 in the preceding URL. At this time, the status of the JSD-60 can be polled using
SNMP. View the MIB for the details of what is currently supported.
JSDV-80 Remote Volume Control
The JSDV-80 remote volume control can be installed in an auditorium or other location. The JSDV-80 includes a
fader control knob that can be used to adjust the main fader level and an interface wiring terminal that is used for
fader up, down and power (+5V and ground). The up is connected to Automation Connector pin 9 and down on in
10. The +5V is connected to pin 13 with the ground at pin 12. There is no need to use an external power source
since it is available on the DB25F connector on the rear of the JSD-60.

Six Channel Analog Input
The JSD-60 six channel analog input is on a DB25F connector. The analog inputs are active balanced (differential)
inputs. They may be driven by balanced or unbalanced sources. When driven by an unbalanced source, the
negative input should be connected to the low side of the source at the source equipment to minimize ground
loop noise. The cable should be twisted pair with individual shields, even when driven by an unbalanced source.
The DB25F connector uses the THX® pin out as specified in the table below.

HI/VI-N Outputs
The JSD-60 has balanced HI and VI-N outputs that can drive balanced or unbalanced loads. As with other outputs,
the use of twisted pair shielded cable is suggested whether the load is balanced or unbalanced. When driving an
unbalanced load, connect the “ – ” output of the JSD-60 to low side of the unbalanced input at the destination end
of the cable to minimize ground loop noise. The source of audio to drive the HI and VI-N outputs is configurable on
a per-format basis. The VI-N audio output is typically driven by AES/EBU input 8. The HI audio output is typically
driven from a main audio mix.

Parallel Automation Interface
Pins 1 through 7 of the DB25F automation connector are “control” pins that accept contact closure or open
collector pulses to ground to select formats. Pulsing pin 8 low toggles the mute state. Pins 9 and 10 are used for
remote fader operation. Each input sources a 400uA when grounded. A pin needs to be pulled below 2.6V for
50ms or more for the JSD-60 to recognize it as low. On pin 13, a +5V, 100mA supply is available to power the JSDV80 Remote Fader. An automation return is on Pin 12.

RS-232 Interface
The RS-232 interface appears on a DE9F connector on the rear panel. The connector is wired as a DCE device. A
command interpreter accepts ASCII commands (described in Appendix B) over the RS-232 and Ethernet interfaces.
The RS-232 port operates at 38.4kbps, 8N1 (8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit), with no handshake.

Description
DCD – Internally connected to pins 4 and 6. Does not need to be connected in most cases.
TXD – The JSD-60 transmits data on this pin.
RXD – The JSD-60 receives data on this pin.
DTR – Internally connected to pins 1 and 6. Does not need to be connected in most cases.
GND – Signal ground.
DSR – Internally connected to pins 1 and 4. Does not need to be connected in most cases.
Internally connected to pin 8. Does not need to be connected in most cases.
Internally connected to pin 7. Does not need to be connected in most cases.
RI – The JSD-60 provides a current limited (900mA) +5V to drive external equipment on this pin.
Appendix B – Automation Commands
These commands are used to query the status of the JSD-60 or change its operation (adjust level, select input,
etc.). The commands are typically sent by an automation system. They may be sent over RS-232 or Ethernet. This
is a subset of the full command set. The full command set includes commands for adjust equalization, etc.
Commands are not echoed by the JSD-60. Commands are terminated by a carriage return (0x0d). Commands are
tab delimited. There needs to be a tab character (0x09) between the command and the first parameter, then
another tab before the second parameter, etc. The JSD-60 responds to every command. Responses are also tab
delimited and are terminated with a carriage return. All commands are lower case and are case sensitive. Note:
Every command generates some sort of response that must be picked up by the command sender. Failure to pick
up these responses can cause buffers in the JSD-60 or the host to fill, possibly halting communications. If the
response is not needed, a simple "eat garbage" routine that loops until the receive buffer is empty should be called
before sending a command.
RS-232
The JSD-60 is a DCE device that transmits on pin 2 of the 9 pin D connector. The JSD-60 receives data on pin 3.
Communications is at 38.4kbps, 8N1 (8 databits, no parity, 1 stop bit).
Ethernet
The JSD-60 listens on port 10001 for TCP connections from other equipment (typically a digital cinema server).
Commands and responses are then exchanged in ASCII.
Automation Command List
The Automation Command List shown in table below. Remember that commands are tab delimited and
terminated with a carriage return. In the table below, the required tab characters are shown as "\t", and the
required carriage return characters are shown as "\r". Consult the next table to determine how to insert a tab or
carriage return in the command string.
The JSD-60 accepts a small number of JSD-100 commands. It interprets the command such that the ending result is
similar to that of a JSD-100. For example, the command to select either COAX1 or COAX2 on a JSD-100 will result in
the COAX input of the JSD-60 being selected.

Description
Sets or reads the current fader level. If a parameter is provided, the
main fader is set to the corresponding level. The parameter is the
fader level times 100. In this example, the fader is set to 7.0. If no
parameter is supplied, the fader level is not changed. The command
always returns the current fader level times 100. If the command
changed the fader level, the new level is returned.
Selects or reads the input format. If a parameter is supplied, the
JSD-60 is switched to this input. In the example, input mode 0,
corresponding to button 1 on the front panel (COAX) is selected. If
no parameter is supplied, no change is made to the current input
mode. The command always returns the currently selected input
mode. If a parameter was provided, the new input mode is
returned. If no parameter was provided, the currently selected
input mode is returned.
Sets or reads the current mute status of the JSD-60. If the supplied
parameter is 1, the system is muted. If the supplied parameter is 0,
the system is unmuted. If no parameter is supplied, the mute status
of the system remains unchanged. The command always returns
the current mute status of the system. If the command includes a
parameter, the new mute status is returned. If no parameter is
supplied, the current mute status is returned.
DCS Configuration
A Digital Cinema Server is normally configured to send commands to the JSD-60 over Ethernet or RS-232 at
appropriate times during content play out. The user needs to configure macros to send commands to the JSD-60.
The automation commands for a JSD-100 are accepted and processed accordingly. Servers vary in how control
characters (such as tab and carriage return) are entered. The table below lists a few servers and how control
characters are entered. Consult the Knowledge Base on the USL website for updates to this list.
DCS
Manufacturer
Dolby
Doremi
Control Code Entry
Automation commands are currently only supported over RS-232, not Ethernet. In Show
Manager, on the "serial automation" system page, there is a "termination" field where you
can put byte codes to be added to the end of each command. By default the system
includes "\0A" (line feed) in this field, but you can change it "\0D" (carriage return) or any
other sequence. This will terminate each automation string. To insert a tab in an
automation string, use “\09”.
Use "\r" to send a carriage return at the end of a string defined for a raw device. Use “\t”
to inset a tab in an automation string. Use “\w” to insert a short wait in a command.

Appendix C – System Restore and Power-Up Buttons
System Restore
The JSD-60 has several methods of recovering from an unlikely failure. These are detailed below.
Bypass Mode
When the JSD-60 main power switch is off and the bypass power supply is plugged in, independent bypass circuitry
creates a mono sum of the selected analog or digital input audio and routes it to the left and right outputs. A quick
way of recovering from a system failure is to turn the JSD-60 off.
Restore Factory Firmware
If a firmware update of the main (PIC) processer is interrupted, it is possible to leave the system inoperable. To
restore the factory installed firmware, turn off the JSD-60, then hold down buttons 4 and 6 (Option and Non/Sync)
while turning the power back on. The message “Firmware Update Running” gets displayed and when completed
the JSD-60 will restart with the original firmware. The interrupted firmware update can then be repeated. This
only restores the PIC firmware, not the DSP or Front Panel firmware. Ensure the versions for each are from the
same code package.
Load Configuration from SD Card
The SD card is used as a "personality module" in the JSD-60. Should a JSD-60 be replaced, all the saved settings
from the old unit can be easily loaded in to the new unit without the use of a computer. These settings were saved
during the initial configuration using the SD Card Backup button on the GUI. To restore the settings to a new JSD60, insert the card from the old unit (behind the removable cover on the rear panel) in the new unit. With the JSD60 off, hold down buttons 6 and 7 (Non/Sync and MIC) down while turning on the power. Continue to hold the
buttons about 30 seconds until the bypass LED stops flashing. The configuration will be loaded and copied to the
internal non-volatile memory. The JSD-60 is now configured the same as the previous unit. The configuration data
is written as a text file that can be opened using a text editor like Note Pad. The file can also be opened with the
GUI and then transferring the settings to the connected unit, or just read to review settings.
Power-Up Buttons
The JSD-60 checks the state of front panel buttons during power up to determine if some special action is required.
During normal operation, no front panel buttons are down during power up. The table below describes the
response of the JSD-60 when buttons are held down during power up.
Buttons
Option, Non/Sync
Non/Sync, MIC
Action
Restores factory installed PIC firmware and configuration. Hold buttons until the
display reads “Firmware Update Running”. Does not restore DSP or front panel
firmware.
Loads configuration from SD card and saves to external flash. This is usually used when
swapping out a JSD-60, as described above.
Page 55
Appendix D – JSD-60 Accessories
AES/EBU RJ45 Adapters for various servers
The JSD-60 can use CAT5 cable with RJ45 connectors to carry AES/EBU audio from the digital cinema server to the
JSD-60. Use of CAT5 cabling reduces cost and simplifies the installation. EBU Tech. 3250-E, third edition, states that
AES/EBU may be carried over CAT5 cable for 400 meters.
To simplify the use of CAT5 cable for AES wiring, USL makes the following adapters available. These plug into the
DB25 connector on the server. CAT5 cables can then be run to the JSD-60.

Appendix E – INI File Formats
Many configuration files used by the JSD-60 GUI are plain text ini files. They are located in Documents\USL\JSD-60
and its subdirectories. These files can be edited with a standard text editor to change the operation of the system.
This appendix shows the typical contents of these files. Note that the file contents are described in comments
(where a line starts with #). The configuration file uses a typical PC ini structure in that section are identified with
“[Section]” square braces and parameter following with it name and assigned value “ParameterName=1.” Note
that there are no spaces allowed and all entries will start a column, left justified.
AutoEQ.ini
The Automatic Equalization configuration file contains, settling time, bands control, and additional features to be
applied in the execution. For instance, a common parameter adjusted is called QuietLevel, it will determine if the
auditorium has low enough background noise before allowing an automatic equalization to be executed. The
comments above each section describe both the section and parameters.
# This is the initial state for starting automatic EQ.
# Settling - Specifies the amount of time in seconds to wait
# before taking a first time SPL reading.
# QuietLevel - This is the upper limit to determine no background
# noise in the auditorium is present.
# ChannelGain - This is the initial starting point for setting the
# starting channel trim level, it must be low enough that with a fader
# level the output SPL in low enough to continue with auto EQ.
# Fader - This is the output fader level setting, trims are used to adjust
# the level.
# EQSPL - Is used for the initial sound level and the level for automatic EQ.
# Decay - The RTA setting for controlling the update rates.

X-Curve 150 Seats.ini
In the RTA view there is a set of upper, desired, and lower limit lines. The RTA bands are drawn in columns with a
rectangular indicator for its level. The columns are designed to line up with the graphic equalizer controls below
them. The limit lines follow this format in being shown as a line at a given level for each band. Depending on the
size of the auditorium, (then number of seats), a respective set of limits is used, curve. The user can use the
provided curve files located in My Documents\USL\JSD-60\EQ Curves folder. As with other text based “.ini” files
the user can create custom curve files. The Automatic Equalization process will use the limits in the setting the
levels for each band.

System Configuration j60 and cfg Files
The system configuration files are text based and can be opened using a text editor like Note Pad. The files save by
the GUI have a “.j60” extension. The JSD-60 saves configuration data to the SD card with a “CFG” extension. Both
files types use a text format that can be read by the GUI to review or transfer settings.
