Crestron | C2N-DAP8RC | C2N-DAP8RC Data Sheet - AV-iQ

7.1 Surround Sound Processor and Room Solution Box
The C2N-DAP8RC is a professional surround sound processor, video
switcher, and control interface in a single package. As part of a
complete Crestron Home® AV distribution system, the C2N-DPA8RC
delivers cost-effective, high-end audio processing, AV signal routing,
and device control. Having no front panel controls, the C2N-DAP8RC
allows each installation to be equipped with just the right balance of
automation and adjustability to suit the needs of the end-user.
Whether using a touchpanel, keypad, handheld remote, or computer, the
user interface is completely customizable, so control of the
C2N-DAP8RC can be largely preset to simplify operation for the
technically-challenged, or it can be extensively "tweakable" to
indulge the most avid theater enthusiast.
Surround Sound Processor
Based on the powerful Analog Devices SHARC® 32-bit floating point DSP,
the C2N-DAP8RC achieves jaw-dropping sonic performance from all of
today's digital sources, and is hardware and software upgradeable to
support future advancements. Surround modes include Dolby® Digital EX
and DTS® ES, as well as Dolby Prologic II and DTS Neo:6, providing
every option for decoding and enhancing a complete range of movies and
Precision 24-bit 96 kHz A/D converters provide maximum dynamic range
for analog sources. A total of 6 analog and 5 digital inputs are
provided to accommodate a full complement of sources. In addition to
the local inputs, analog and digital audio signals may also be
received from a centralized head-end via built-in CAT5 Balanced AV
The 7.1 output section, featuring 24-bit 192 kHz D/A converters, is
ideal for driving Crestron's CNAMPX-7X200 7-Channel Surround Sound
Amplifier. Both 5.1 and 6.1 speaker configurations are also supported.
A discrete subwoofer output supports the reproduction of LFE (low
frequency effects) audio with extensive bass management control to
maximize the performance of any powered subwoofer. Every output
includes individual level adjustment, 6-band parametric equalization,
and up to 20 milliseconds of delay for precise optimization of the
complete speaker system. Graphic equalization is also available,
although its effects are global for all outputs. Output levels can be
set and stored differently for each surround mode, and EQ presets (5
parametric or 10 graphic) allow for storage and recall of different
curves tailored to particular audio material or listener preferences.
Global bass and treble control is provided as well.
Complete and precise audio setup can be performed easily using
Crestron's Digital Media Tools (DMT) software. For proper
calibration, pink noise and Dolby noise sources are built into the
Three additional stereo outputs are provided to feed line-level audio
to recording devices and remote zone amplifiers. Output A is a fixed
unity-level output, while Output B features a complete dedicated
preamp section with independent controls for volume, bass, treble,
balance, loudness, mono, and mute. The third output feeds the CAT5
audio port, allowing local analog audio signals to be routed to a
centralized head-end for redistribution to other rooms. Any analog
input on the C2N-DAP8RC can be independently routed to any or all of
the three stereo outputs, noting that the signal selected for Output B
is synonymous with the analog signal selected for the surround
Video Matrix Switcher
The C2N-DAP8RC provides 12 unbalanced video input connectors to accept
any combination of composite, S-Video, and high-definition component
signals from local video sources. A CAT5 balanced video input port is
also provided to receive video and digital audio signals from a
centralized head end. Any of the input signals may be freely routed to
any of 12 unbalanced output connectors to feed plasma displays,
projectors, monitors, and other devices within the room. A CAT5
balanced video output port allows local video signals to be routed to
the head-end for redistribution to other rooms.
Through programming, complete AV signal routing becomes transparent to
the end-user with all switching occurring smoothly under the command
of the control system. Each unbalanced video input even includes
built-in signal sensing to report the presence of video signals to the
control system, enabling auto-switching capability and providing
verification of device power status. Also, since the C2N-DAP8RC's
matrix switcher supports coaxial digital audio as well as video, it
can effectively be utilized to expand the number of digital audio
inputs and allow redistribution of local digital audio sources via the
CAT5 balanced video output port.
Room Solution Box
Its bidirectional CAT5 audio and video ports enable the C2N-DAP8RC to
interface with CNX-PVID8 video distribution switchers and
CNX-BIPAD8 audio distribution processors, allowing AV sources to be
shared easily between the theater and head end locations using
inexpensive CAT5E cable. One Cresnet cable and up to three CAT5E
cables (available as CresCAT™Q
, sold separately) provide complete
connectivity for bidirectional audio, video, and control over a
distance of up to 750 feet (500 feet for component video).
Four IR/serial ports and one bi-directional RS-232 port provide a
powerful interface for control of local video projectors, plasma
displays, televisions, VCRs, DVD players, and more. A single digital
input port is also provided to support the optional CNXRMCS TV
current sensor, or any low-voltage contact closure device.
The C2N-DAP8RC functions as a slave device to any 2-Series control
system communicating via the Cresnet control network. Any of
Crestron's touchpanels, keypads, and handheld remotes may be used to
provide the user interface to control the C2N-DAP8RC and all connected devices.
Adding an optional CNXRMIRD IR receiver affords cost-effective control from any
Crestron or third-party universal IR remote.
