DS100

The truth and beauty matrix

The DS100 Signal Engine is the hardware, a network controlled and Dante enabled DSP platform that provides comprehensive signal management within the familiar d&b Workflow. It comprises a 64x64 matrix, with delay and level control for all crosspoints and extensive signal processing at all inputs and outputs, integrated in the operating concept of the d&b R1 Remote control software, including grouping of parameters in remote views and storing of scenes in snapshots.

Advanced features within ArrayCalc and R1 simplify the integration of these matrix functions into d&b loudspeaker configurations. From configuring the DS10 Network bridge to preparing an output Dante patch for connecting the speakers. In addition, all functions of the matrix can be controlled via OSC, i. e. they can be remote controlled and automated via this standardized open source protocol for complex applications.
