DPM Series

Cinema Audio Processor/Monitor/Crossover

Complete digital audio signal processing with monitoring, network control, and Intrinsic Correction™ for QSC cinema loudspeakers.


DPM Series processors are a powerful solution for today’s D-Cinema audio systems. DPM offers a complete set of tools to facilitate all the signal processing, audio distribution, monitoring and automation control required in a modern D-Cinema sound system.

The DPM offers a variety of options for configuring and managing the product and an entire cinema sound system locally or
remotely. Local DPM configuration and system management are provided through directly applied connections to the DPM
via universal serial bus (USB), the DPM front panel LCD and buttons or through a local Ethernet link. Remote and
system-wide management are possible through more sophisticated network implementations and/or via wide area network
(WAN) topologies, Internet access or 3rd party subscription services that make use of the DPM third-party API or SNMP.

Basic configuration of the DPM product is performed through the USB interface on the product front panel or via the
Ethernet connection on the rear panel. The system designer connects to the DPM’s USB or ethernet port with a Windows or
MAC laptop or PC running the DPM Manager™ software application. DPM Manager offers all the setup tools and system
management objects to configure the auditorium audio format, selection of audio source material, configure the DSP signal
path, apply crossovers, EQ etc., define the routing of audio to the amplifiers, define the system speakers and speaker
processing etc. Once the basic configuration is complete, the system designer can define up to 16 custom Presets that can
be recalled for different auditorium setups. For example, a Preset can be created for the primary presentation content.
Another Preset can be created for non-sync or alternative content. And yet another Preset can be created for live application
use such as seminars or corporate events. Once these Presets are created they become accessible via the DPM front panel
user interface. In addition to basic configuration, DPM Manager can be used to monitor health, status and performance of
the system via the product’s USB or Ethernet interface.

Intrinsic Correction corrects the intrinsic behaviors of cinema loudspeakers, removing any anomalies from the equation of
factors that affect measured response and, ultimately, the quality of sound. It involves a set of laboratory derived settings
which are implemented in the DPM Series processors. Intrinsic Correction optimizes performance and minimizes the amount
of on-site room tuning, because many response anomalies are corrected before the loudspeakers are installed. Settings for
most QSC cinema loudpeakers are already available in every DPM processor.

When the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, that’s synergy. When a sound system uses all QSC components, that’s SystemSynergy. The result is a complete cinema sound system that is easier to set-up, configure, and operate than any collection of components from different brands. QSC products are designed with the complete system in mind, so that all parts perform optimally when used together as whole system. To put it simply: a system comprised of QSC processors, amplifiers, and loudspeakers will outperform any other system.

DPM Series processor/monitor/crossovers are designed with the philosophy of complete System Synergy. With QSC innovations like Intrinsic Correction, DataPort connectors, integrated monitoring, along with the reliability upon which we’ve built our reputation over the last half-century, DPM Series processors optimize the performance of QSC amplifiers and loudspeakers. The DPM 100/100H and DPM 300/300H are the most cost-effective and high performance cinema processors available today.

DPM Manager™ Software

The DPM Manager software application provides all the necessary tools and system management objects for the complete set-up, configuration and monitoring of the DPM 100/100H/300/300H cinema audio processor/monitor/crossovers.
