Meridian G68
GENERAL INFORMATION
SIMPLWINDOWS FILE NAME:
C3 Meridian G68 processor V1.02.umc
CATEGORY:
Receiver / Processor
CURRENT VERSION:
1.02
PROGRAMMER:
GO
SUMMARY:
Full control of main zone, copy zone & dsp with full feedback
SYSTEMBUILDER COMPATIBLE
Yes
This module will control all functions on a Meridian G68 processor. It has been designed in such a
way as to extract as much feedback information as it can from the processor.
Functions that can be controlled from this module include:
•
Main source selection by way of analog input
•
Main volume & mute control
•
Main source dsp fuctions by way of analog input
•
Zone source selection by way of analog input
•
Zone volume & mute control*
•
OSD, setup & menu functions
*Note: There is no “un-mute” command for the G68 zone output. However this module gets
round this and provide standard mute / un-mute & toggle functions in a similar manner to the
main zone. This also means that muting the copy zone does not kill the copy zone source
feedback as is the case on other modules for controlling this device. There is an option on the
module to determine how the copy mute function operates. This is discussed later in this
document.
All C3 modules use analogs for source selection. This module uses the following values to set the
sources and dsp functions:

Notes
Will cause copy to follow main
Not required if using the built-in mute functions
Default ‘power off value’ parameter
Assigning any valid source to an input will switch on the main or copy zone circuits automatically.
Once powered up the main or copy zone will adjust the volume as set by the ‘default volume’
parameter. Any analog source can be forced off by setting the value = ‘power off value’
parameter. The default is 65535d.
Using analog source values enables all C3 audio/video modules to be dropped into existing
programs where a PAD8 or BiPad may be used. This allows for greater programming flexibility.
The dsp functions will be covered on the next page

Comment
Front left / right only
Recommended for recordings made with spaced omnidirectional microphones, or using a mono-surround technique
Recommended for well-made recordings and stereo television broadcasts that are not Dolby Surround encoded
Decode UHJ format, the two-channel stereo-compatible encoding found on Ambisonically recorded discs and broadcasts
Uses the ambisonic decoder. Recommended for true coincident microphone techniques & multi-tracked or multi-miked recordings
Front left/right mono & subs are also used
Based on Pro Logic II with user-adjustable steering, to provide an exciting experience with many types of studio-produced music
You all know how this one works
Logic preset based on Pro Logic IIx with the addition of user-adjustable steering for TV broadcasts
Uses the Pro Logic IIx DSP processing mode to decode music sources
Recommended for Dolby surround encoded material. Can give good results with two-channel sources not specifically encoded for
Dolby Surround, including two-channel Dolby Digital sources
Recommended for Dolby surround encoded material. Can give good results with two-channel sources not specifically encoded for
Dolby Surround, including two-channel Dolby Digital sources adding THX Cinema processing
Similar to Cinema, except that it uses the Music speaker layout and sets the LFE level to -10dB
Recommended for listening to multichannel movie soundtracks when no further processing is required
Creates four surround signals; it is intended for multichannel music playback from sources such as DVD-A or SACD
Creates four surround signals from traditional multichannel source material like Dolby Digital 5.1
Re-equalises the signals to suit domestic listening conditions, and applies frequency-response correction and decorrelation to the
surround channels
As THX but with surround processing
Recommended for movie soundtracks that are not Dolby Surround EX encoded
Recommended for listening to multichannel music
(Default) 9600, 8, 1, N. Handshaking: None. RTS/CTS are not used.
