dbx® Professional Products, a Salt Lake City-based manufacturer of professional signal processing products and a division of the Harman International Company (NYSE-HAR), is showcasing the SC 64 (System Core) and SC 32 Digital Matrix Processors. These flagship processors feature intuitive Wizard-driven system configuration using Harman’s proprietary HiQnet™ System Architect™, for unprecedented DSP power and routing flexibility, making it the ideal foundation for even the most demanding systems.
The SC 64 and SC 32 host a total of 64 and 32 analog I/O respectively, configurable in banks of eight. The flexibility of eight analog input cards and eight analog output cards easily facilitates many different fully loaded configurations, accommodating a wide range of standard sources via the onboard mic/line and Phantom Power switching per input. Two high-speed option slots on the SC 64 and one high-speed option slot on the SC 32 also provide an interface for adding forthcoming high bandwidth audio transport I/O cards. The units feature dedicated DSP for common processing functions as well as insert positions for specialized processing and popular audio tools including dbx Advanced Feedback Suppression™ (AFS™) Ambient Noise Compensation (ANC), priority ducking, parametric equalization (PEQ), delay and dynamics.
Additionally, the SC 64 and SC 32 devices offer a diverse range of control options including HiQnet System Architect custom control panels, as well as Ethernet, serial, contact closure control, ZC wall controllers and even automatically scheduled events. An optional media engine facilitates delayed paging and storage of audio files for scheduled playback.
Harman HiQnet™ is the world's first connectivity and control protocol that integrates all product categories in the signal chain for professional audio systems of all types, size, and applications. Harman HiQnet no longer requires the user to manage multiple disparate operating systems or be responsible for programming individual signal processors, speaker controllers, wireless microphone systems, and mixing consoles. HiQnet was developed by engineers from across Harman’s Professional Division and is coordinated by the System Development and Integration Group (SDIG), a team of dedicated systems specialists based in Salt Lake City, Utah.
