Founded over four decades ago, QSC Audio Products, LLC, is a globally recognized leader in the design and manufacture of professional audio system solutions. Sound Associates have been specifying and installing QSC amplifiers for use in cinemas large and small for many years and now with Q-Sys we continue to deliver high quality cinema sound.

QSC introduced a full range of cinema speakers and Sound Associates is proud to have carried out all of the UK installations of their stage, sub-bass and surround speakers. The range now includes digital signal processing (DSP) and, again, Sound Associates have carried out numerous installations, both here in the UK as well as overseas.

In 2016 QCS acquired Ultra-Stereo Labs, Inc. (USL) allowing them to offer an industry-leading porfolio of sound processing solutions for the motion picture exhibition industry.

DCP 200

A Cinema Processor, Booth Monitor and Digital Crossover along with network control and monitoring of DSP, amplifiers and speakers in one integrated package.

Everything you need between server and amps.

QSC's Digital Cinema Processor, the DCP 200, builds on the legacy of DCM and Basis to provide all booth-mounted signal processing and monitoring functions for Digital Cinema systems that use Basis and DCA amps behind the screen. The DCP 200 offers most of the features of the DCP 300 but at a lower price point for systems that don’t require screen channel crossovers but instead utilize CobraNet™ network audio distribution to additional Basis processors.

Designed to be used with QSC's Digital Cinema Amplifiers (DCA) and featuring advanced DSP presets for QSC's Digital Cinema Speakers (DCS), the DCP 200 optimizes loudspeaker performance while simplifying cinema sound system wiring and configuration. The DCP 200 covers cinema systems ranging from three to five screen channels and up to 16 digital inputs. Outboard Basis processors support passive, bi-amp, tri-amp or quad-amp crossovers and subwoofer outputs. The DCP 200 is compatible with all analog cinema processor formats including Dolby® Digital Surround-EX and DTS-ES and features a 10 channel analog input for integration with 35mm audio systems.
