Buena Park, CA (October 20, 2006)–At the AES Convention earlier this month, Yamaha Commercial Audio Systems launched its DSP5D, a DSP expander for the company’s PM5D digital sound reinforcement console. The DSP5D expands the capabilities of the PM5D to 96 mono plus 16 stereo input channels, includes two additional card slots and more effects and dynamics processing.
A second DSP5D unit can be added to provide further expansion to 144 mono plus 24 stereo input channels. When used in conjunction with the new DCU5D Ethernet Audio Cascade Unit, the DSP5D can be set in a remote location and controlled from PM5D up to 100 meters using a Cat-5.
Features include 24 mix busses, eight matrix busses, 24 omni outputs, full-channel functionality (gain, EQ and filters, dynamics, and sends), eight effect processors and 12 graphic equalizers, two mini-YGDAI expansion card slots, and full compatibility with DSP5D Editor computer software.
