QSC DCP Series

QSC DCP Series

The DCP Series is a line of integrated Digital Cinema Processors that bring together all the essential functions of cinema audio: crossovers, booth monitor, routing, EQ, and status monitoring. DCP processors tame the complexity of projection booth audio systems, replacing an assortment of separately sourced parts with a single box that handles everything. Wiring is drastically simplified. Operation is straightforward and intuitive. Networking is comprehensive and extensible. And control — both local and remote — is exhaustive. Simply put, the DCP Series is the world’s most capable and efficient cinema processing solution.
