If the microphone input sound falls below a lower-specified
level, the gate function cuts off the microphone sound so that
the background noise is reduced, howling is prevented, and
clear sound quality is maintained. When larger than a certain
volume is input again, the microphone input is turned on
without delay. (See part 2 in the figure.)
Conventional automatic mixers have an inherent lack of sound
at the beginning of a speech due to the time difference after
the audio input level is detected until the gate starts working.
The SRP-X700P solves this problem by removing the time
difference by using digital signal processing.
Output level
Moving the pointer to the button displays the present
output level.

by using SRP-X700P Manager.
You can adjust the qg OUTPUT fader by dragging the fader
portion.
The audio signal that has passed the INPUT fader on the
INPUT OVERVIEW screen and the OUTPUT fader on the
OUTPUT OVERVIEW screen, is output.
(The INPUT fader and the MASTER volume control of the

ACTIVE in the event of sound volume adjustment for the
first time. Entering muting is not a failure.
Therefore, do not terminate the SRP-X700P Manager or do
not disconnect the USB cable without adjusting the sound
volume.
• A sudden large sound may occur when you switch to
ACTIVE mode while the sound volume is reduced by either
the fader, MASTER volume or from the REMOTE terminal.
Before switching the mode, stop the connected equipments
and check the direction of the microphones.
• The mode of the INPUT fader and the mode of the OUTPUT
fader are interlocked and so are switched together.

INPUT SELECT command setup
Sets the command to select the input terminal of the projector in accordance with the SRP-X700P LINE4 SELECT selection. It also sets the
wait time after the command has been sent.
The SRP-X700P has built-in independent switchers for the respective video signal systems. When the video signal system of the channel that
is selected by LINE4 SELECT is the VIDEO signal, the output video signal is sent to the VIDEO output terminal. When the selected channel
is of the S-VIDEO signal, it is output to the S-VIDEO output terminal. When the selected channel is of either the RGB signal or the
COMPONENT signal, it is output to the 5BNC terminal.
By this system, the SRP-X700P sends to the projector a command that selects the projector input depending on the signal system of the
channel selected by LINE4 SELECT.
The INPUT SELECT command is set for the respective signal systems. A maximum of two commands can be set for a single signal system.
