Main System Monitor Panel
The DCS 420 Monitor Manager is a 2RU unit offering acoustic control and visual level metering of audio in the system. Switching and displaying of up to 250 audio signal sources, as well as, controlling the volume is carried out via front panel control switches. The DCS420 receives its audio feed from the monitor output of the DPM4000. DCS420 system control functions are carried out through a connection to the DCS401 controller module. The front panel controls of the DCS420 offer audio level and line control switching of either the input signal or the output signal of the system amplifiers.
With several external sound sources connected, switching is performed through the DCS 409R module. When using remote-amplifiers, switching audio signals to the monitor bus is accomplished directly inside the amplifier. The signals are transmitted via remote interconnection cables
