The CPi2000 processor is suitable for cinemas using 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound
The CPi2000 processor from JBL offers audio enhancement and volume control capabilities for cinema sound solutions. It provides DSP processing, presets for JBL cinema speaker crossover, system fault detection and custom-designed GUI software used for system configuration, delivering a ⅓-octave GEQ for room tuning via the processor. It is suitable for cinemas using 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound.
The front-panel LCD display allows technicians to monitor the status of the system, including amplifiers and speakers, and a volume knob enables the adjustment of global output levels. When paired with certain Crown amplifiers, the processor can detect faults in the system, sending information to a TMS or third-party control system via its RJ45 connector.
Analogue, digital, non-sync and mono mic input options are included. The analogue and digital inputs accept audio signals from any cinema server; the non-sync takes line level stereo signals from CD or DVD players from BGM playback; and the mic input connects to an RTA microphone for room tuning. The CPi2000 also possesses 10 HD-15 analogue outputs for passive, bi-amp or tri-amp connection, a 25-pin analogue output compatible with third-party sound systems and a redundant output that works with analogue input to bypass the processor during power cuts.
In other news, JBL has released an update for its PRX800 series of powered portable loudspeakers. The V2 firmware update offers a new default tuning preset featuring enhanced low frequencies on the PRX815 and PRX812 models.
