AP243D
Digital Cinema Audio Processor
The AP243D is the most powerful cinema processor on the market specifically designed
for an immersive cinema sound experience. The AP243D receives and processes audio
from multiple analog & digital audio sources and can be monitored and controlled from
anywhere in the network. It supports the revolutionary Auro 11.1 sound format that
offers moviegoers an immersive sound experience.
The AP243D is one of the most flexible and powerful general-purpose audio processors
available in the market. It was engineered to reproduce native content in Auro 11.1
immersive sound and also contains a unique upmixing feature for alternative content
to be played in 11.1. The package of 24 digital and 24 analog outputs with full mapping
towards the inputs channels makes it a very attractive audio processing solution. Each
of these 24 channels include:
• 31 bands of third octave EQ
• Three bands of parametric EQ
• Channel gain & phase inversion control
• Individual bass & treble controls
• Variable delay line adjustable from 0 ms to 1000 ms
It also includes the Dirac Live® room optimization technology for correcting room
modes and anomalies using high-resolution filter technology to further enhance the
listening experience.
