Extron Adds Features to Surround Sound Processor – But It’s Designed for ProAV’ers

ssp71-0710Extron recently added several new features for the SSP 7.1 Surround Sound Processor, including a seven-channel, nine-band parametric EQ; Live and Emulate operation modes with configuration file saving; and up to 100 ms of lip sync adjustment on each input. These new features can be accessed with Version 2.0 of the Setup and Control Software, which provides a user-friendly interface for simplified setup and control of the SSP 7.1 as well as calibration of the sound system. The upgrade is included with SSP 7.1 units now shipping, and is available as a free software download and firmware update for current users at their website.

The SSP 7.1 is a 5-input Surround Sound Processor that provides up to eight channels of surround sound specifically for ProAV environments, but many of you have integrated it into high-end homes. It automatically detects and decodes audio content in various Dolby and DTS formats from DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and HDTV broadcasts. The SSP 7.1 also offers Dolby Pro Logic II/IIx and DTS Neo processing to provide surround sound from two-channel stereo. It features coaxial and optical digital inputs, plus an analog balanced/unbalanced two-channel input. The SSP 7.1 is designed for integration into pro A/V installations, with a compact, rack-mountable metal enclosure, RS-232 serial control, and balanced/unbalanced line level outputs.
