Dolby, a familiar name in the world of quality audio processing, has given most home theater buffs another reason to endorse their brand as it has announced the release of their new CP750 Cinema Processor. The CP750 is designed to work within the new digital cinema environment, integrating easily with preshow servers, alternative content, and digital cinema servers.
The processor has an easy-to-use interface and powerful internal software that facilitates the setup process and can be easily programmed to manage audio settings and configurations. It can play back PCM digital, Dolby Digital, Dolby Pro Logic Dolby Pro Logic II, Dolby Digital Surround EX™, and analog audio. In addition, the CP750 can be monitored and controlled remotely from anywhere on the theatre’s network.
The CP750 accepts up to eight PCM channels from the digital cinema server. Three additional digital inputs accept PCM or up to 5.1-channel Dolby Digital from preshow and alternative content sources. An eight-channel analog input can accept audio from existing sound processors for hybrid film/d-cinema installations. In addition, the CP750 can process a narrative soundtrack for the hearing and/or visually impaired.
