The new QSC DCP 300 Processor


A Cinema Processor, Booth Monitor and Digital Crossover along with network
control and monitoring of DSP, amplifiers and speakers in one integrated package.

Everything you need between server and amps.

QSC’s Digital Cinema Processor, the DCP 300, builds on the legacy of DCM and Basis to provide all signal processing and monitoring functions for Digital Cinema in a single integrated system. 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 300 optimizes loudspeaker performance while simplifying cinema sound system wiring and configuration. The DCP 300 covers cinema systems ranging from three to five screen channels, and are configurable for bi-amp, tri-amp or quad-amp operation. The DCP 300 is also compatible with all analog cinema processor formats including Dolby® Digital Surround-EX and DTS-ES and features a 10 channel analog input for intergration with 35mm audio systems.

Digital Input for up to 16 Channels of audio
Networked audio I/O via CobraNet
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
Digital Loudspeaker Crossovers
Three or five screen channels — 2, 3 or 4-way crossovers
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
SD Memory card for quick unit swap – restores all settings
Multiple Bypass modes routes audio around failed components to insure that the show will go on

PC-based software for set-up, control and monitoring

DSP presets for DCS speakers for great “out of box” performance and reduced set-up time
Crossovers support active 2, 3 and 4 way systems
QSControl and Control Manager 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
CobraNet offers digital non-sync routing and future expansion capability
Continued development of software and firmware will add new capabilities to the existing hardware with easy firmware updates
The DCP 300 is the heart of a new generation of QSC products designed expressly for the needs of D-Cinema sound systems

Digital Signal Processing:
The DCP’s digital signal processing capability outperforms traditional analog crossovers and equalizers for optimized speaker performance. Crossover frequency, 1/3 octave graphic EQ, parametric equalization, polarity, delay and gain can be precisely adjusted for each speaker in your system. Active 2-way, 3-way and 4-way crossovers are available. Advanced crossover presets for QSC DCS speakers speeds system set-up and insures maximum performance.

Less Wiring, Faster Set-up:
DCP’s 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. DCP’s simplify set-up by using a menu-driven, PC-based software program for configuration. The program includes a speaker data file that lists default parameters for popular cinema speaker models. Commonly used configurations can also be saved on a disk, allowing you to quickly load them on other DCMs. 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.

Advanced Monitor Functions:
In addition to audio monitoring of amplifier inputs and outputs, DCP’s include QSC’s exclusive “load fault” detection. DCP’s monitor all 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 a QSControl Ethernet monitoring system. QSControl and Control Manager 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.
