DCP Series

The DCP Series is a line of integrated Digital Cinema Processors that bring together all the essential functions of cinema audio: crossovers, booth monitor, routing, EQ, and status monitoring. DCP processors tame the complexity of projection booth audio systems, replacing an assortment of separately sourced parts with a single box that handles everything. Wiring is drastically simplified. Operation is straightforward and intuitive. Networking is comprehensive and extensible. And control — both local and remote — is exhaustive. Simply put, the DCP Series is the world’s most capable and efficient cinema processing solution.

DCP Software

For DCP 300 Digital Cinema Processors

The DCP Manager software controls DCP 300 Digital Cinema Processors and gives you an easy interface that allows you to communicate, configure and monitor the operation of your cinema sound system. Using a simple menu-driven approach, it's quick to design a configuration, which is a complete set of parameter settings that change the audio routing, crossover filters, gains, delays, diagnostics and monitor behavior within the DCP Series hardware unit.  All configuration data is stored in the DCP device, and can also be saved to a removable SD memory card in the DCP for backup and to quickly reproduce settings on other DCP units.

DCPNet

DCPNet is a powerful software application that provides comprehensive network-based monitoring and control for multiple QSC digital cinema processors and DCA amplifiers – both individually as well as simultaneously all on one screen.

DCPNet enables network access to any DCP Series cinema processor.  DCPNet makes it possible to monitor and adjust most DCP processor settings for any theatre or even an entire multiplex from within the theatre itself, an office location, or anywhere else with network access.  Along with volume, mute and audio preset control, DCPNet allows the user to turn QSC DCA Cinema Amplifiers on and off and monitor amplifier operating conditions like temperature and impedance loading.  Control presets allow the use of relays in the DCP Digital Cinema Processor and DXP Digital Expansion Processor to control external devices like masking and curtain motors and dimmers.  The new DCPNet application, along with DCPConnect, the mobile application that turns an iOS or Android mobile device into a complete cinema sound remote controller, gives theatre operators an unprecedented level of control over their QSC Cinema Sound systems.
