DCP 200
Digital Cinema Processor
A Cinema Processor, Booth Monitor and Digital Crossover along with network
control and monitoring of DSP, amplifiers and speakers in one integrated package.
QSC's Digital Cinema Processor, the DCP 200, builds on the legacy of DCM and Basis to
provide all booth-mounted signal processing and monitoring functions for Digital Cinema
systems that use Basis and DCA amps behind the screen. The DCP 200 offers most of
the features of the DCP 300 but at a lower price point for systems that don’t require
screen channel crossovers but instead utilize CobraNet network audio distribution to
additional Basis processors.
Designed to be used with QSC's Digital Cinema Amplifiers (DCA) and featuring
advanced DSP presets for QSC's Digital Cinema Speakers (DCS), the DCP 200
optimizes loudspeaker performance while simplifying cinema sound system wiring and
configuration. The DCP 200 covers cinema systems ranging from three to five screen
channels and up to 16 digital inputs. Outboard Basis processors support passive,
bi-amp, tri-amp or quad-amp crossovers and subwoofer outputs. The DCP 200 is
compatible with all analog cinema processor formats including Dolby® Digital SurroundEX and DTS-ES and features a 10-channel analog input for integration with existing
35 mm audio systems.
• Network control and monitoring via SNMP
Digital Signal Processing
The DCP 200 digital signal processing capability outperforms traditional analog
processors for optimized audio performance. Fader level, 1/3 octave graphic EQ,
parametric equalization, polarity, delay and gain can be precisely adjusted for each
channel in your system. Basis processors provide passive and active 2-way, 3-way and
4-way crossovers.
Less Wiring, Faster Set-up
• Digital Input for up to 16-Channels of audio
• Networked audio I/O via CobraNet™ — supports
behind-the-screen mounting of Basis processors for
screen channel and subwoofer DCA amplifiers
• Serial automation control via RS-232
• Analog Inputs for film processors, non-sync
and Mic/Line
• Master volume and full 1/3 Octave Graphic EQ on
all channels (except subwoofer)
• Booth Monitor with touch screen control for
easy operation
• DataPorts for surround channel amplifiers
• Compatible with all existing DCA amplifiers —
thousands of DCA equipped screens are ready for
full network monitoring and control
• Dual power supplies with load sharing for seamless
operation in the event of failure
DCPs greatly simplify system wiring and set-up, significantly reducing installation time
and labor cost. Input to the DCP is provided via standard DB-25 cables from the
D-Cinema server and/or 35mm cinema processor. Connections to DCA amplifiers for
input and monitor signals are made through a single QSC DataPort / VGA-style cable.
All traditional XLR and barrier strip terminations are eliminated. DCPs simplify set-up
by using a menu-driven, PC-based software program for configuration. Connection to
remote-mounted Basis processors is via RJ45 connectors and Cat. 5 cable. Commonly
used configurations can also be saved on a disk, allowing you to quickly load them on
other DCPs. All system configuration data is saved to an SD memory card, allowing easy
transfer of settings to a new DCP, should replacement ever be required.
• SD Memory card for quick unit swap — restores
all settings
Advanced Monitor Functions
• CobraNet offers digital audio routing via
Basis processors
In addition to audio monitoring of processor inputs and outputs, DCPs include QSC's
exclusive "load fault" detection. DCPs monitor all surround amplifier outputs and indicate
opens and shorts in the speaker system, providing confirmation that all amplifier outputs
are functioning properly. In addition, the DCP detects all amplifier clipping, protect modes
and heat sink temperature for reporting via SNMP or a QSControl Ethernet monitoring
system. QSControl and QSCreator allow for the creation of custom control screens and
remote access for fault reporting and diagnosis. The NAC 100 Ethernet remote control
panel provides remote operation in a multiplex from anywhere on the local network.
• Multiple Bypass modes routes audio around failed
components to insure that the show will go on
• QSControl and QSCreator allow for the creation of
custom control screens and remote access for fault
reporting and diagnosis
• Easily integrates with existing film processors for
dual film/digital projection systems
• Continued development of software and firmware
will add new capabilities to the existing hardware
with easy firmware updates
• The DCP 200 is part of a new generation of QSC
products designed expressly for the needs of
D-Cinema sound systems
