Cinema Processor


Cinema Processor
CPi2000 is a professional-grade processor developed by JBL to provide audio enhancement and volume control for cinemas. It features DSP processing, room EQ tuning, volume control and system fault detection and can be configured through a tailor-designed GUI software.

CPi2000 offers four input options – Analog Input, Digital Input, Non-Sync Input and mono Mic Input. The Analog Input and Digital Input accept audio signal from any cinema server. Non-Sync Input receives line level stereo signal from a CD or DVD player for background music playback. Mic Input normally connects to a RTA microphone for room tuning.

CPi2000 installs ten (10) HD-15 Analog Output connectors for passive, bi-amp or tri-amp connection and a 25-pin Analog Output connector for connection with a third-party audio system. Its Redundant Output (work together with Analog Input) connector will bypass the CPi2000 system and directly output audio signals while power failure occurs.

The large LCD display on the front panel is easy for technicians to run a quick check of system status. To make global output volume control easy and quick, the volume knob is designed front accessible. Thanks to the specially-designed GUI software, setting up cinema audio system now becomes less demanding.

CPi2000 provides a 1/3 octave GEQ for room tuning via the GUI software and is built-in with a list of variable crossover presets to accept a wide range of cinema speakers.

Designed to use with CROWN cinema amplifiers and JBL cinema speakers, CPi2000 is able to detect faults of amplifiers or speakers and send the fault information to a TMS or a 3rd party control system via its RJ45 connector.
