12x8 ProDSP Digital Matrix Processors
The DMP 128 Plus Series is the next generation of Digital Matrix Processors featuring Extron’s exclusive ProDSP™ 64-bit floating point technology. Each DMP 128 Plus features 12 analog mono mic/line inputs, eight analog outputs, up to four channels of digital audio input and output via USB, up to eight audio file players, an ACP bus for audio control panels, and configurable macros. The C models also include eight independent channels of world class AEC - Acoustic Echo Cancellation and noise cancellation. The V models include up to eight channels of VoIP, supporting Session Initiation Protocol - SIP. The AT models provide Dante™ audio networking technology with connectivity for 48 digital audio inputs - Rx, and 24 digital audio outputs - Tx.
The DMP 128 Plus Series offers a configuration approach to DSP that simplifies mixing, routing, conferencing, and room optimization. Quick and intuitive configuration using the DSP Configurator Software allows the DMP 128 Plus to be installed in very little time, with easy-to-learn adjustments that can be heard in real-time.
Flexible Routing Within the DMP 128 Plus
The DMP 128 Plus models feature an extensive 52x48 mix matrix allowing all 12 analog inputs, eight aux inputs, 16 expansion bus inputs and 16 virtual bus returns to be discreetly routed to any or all of the eight analog outputs, eight aux outputs, 16 expansion bus outputs and the 16 virtual bus sends.
The DMP 128 Plus AT models feature an even larger 84x48 mix matrix allowing all 12 analog inputs, eight aux inputs, 48 Dante inputs and 16 virtual bus returns to be discreetly routed to any or all of the eight analog outputs, eight aux outputs, 16 Dante outputs and the 16 virtual bus sends.
Expanded Routing Across Two DMP 128 Plus Processors
A DMP EXP expansion port, allows two DMP 128 Plus units to be linked together via a single shielded CAT 6 cable. This creates a 16 channel bi-directional 24-bit/48 kHz high-resolution digital audio expansion bus between the two units, allowing expanded input and output signal management and routing capabilities. This same expansion port can be found on Extron’s DTP CrossPoint 4K series, allowing them to be linked to the DMP 128 Plus.
Dante Audio Networking
Dante-equipped DMP 128 Plus AT models provide scalable audio transport over a local area network using standard Internet protocols. Each DMP 128 Plus AT sends out 24 channels of digital audio and can receive 48 channels over the network. A built-in four-port Gigabit switch also provides direct interconnection of multiple DMP 128 Plus AT processors, AXP 50 C AT, AXP 64 C AT expansion processors and AXI 22 AT D to create larger, cost-effective audio matrixes. Additionally, the DMP 128 Plus AT can be configured to support primary and redundant Dante audio networks.
VoIP - Voice over Internet Protocol Capability
DMP 128 Plus C V and DMP 128 Plus C V AT models include up to eight VoIP lines that can be configured as individual or as rollover. Compatible with a majority of existing VoIP systems, any single V model of the DMP 128 Plus Series can be used for a single VoIP line or as a VoIP farm for up to eight rooms.
FlexInput Capability for Dante Inputs
DMP 128 Plus AT models include FlexInputs to provide the additional capability of processing Dante channels from remote wireless microphones, wallplates, and other sources anywhere on the Dante network, in place of local mic/line inputs 1 through 8. This allows incorporating the full range of DSP processing capabilities, including AEC, for incoming Dante channels.
The DMP 128 Plus features an automixer with gated and gain sharing modes for managing up to eight groups of microphone signals. Gating threshold, signal level reduction, and timing parameters are user-adjustable per channel. This allows for fine-tuning to avoid the “chopped” sound characteristic of a traditional automixer when a mic is gated off.
Acoustic Echo Cancellation
The four DMP 128 Plus C models include Extron AEC for conferencing applications. AEC is essential for effective remote room-to-room conversations, ensuring clear, natural communication for all participants. These models include eight independent channels of high performance AEC, as well as selectable noise cancellation. Extron AEC features advanced algorithms that deliver fast echo canceler convergence for optimal intelligibility, even in challenging conditions such as double-talk and the use of wireless microphones.
The DMP 128 Plus features Extron ProDSP, a powerful digital signal processing platform based on a 64-bit floating point DSP engine. ProDSP provides an extensive array of digital processing tools for audio system design, configuration, and optimization. The DSP Configurator Software is the user interface to ProDSP for full control and management of the DMP 128 Plus and all of its DSP functions, including gain, filtering, dynamics, delay, ducking, loudness, and feedback suppression. DSP Configurator Software is also used to configure and manage AEC and automixing. An integral part of the DSP Configurator Software is the Graphical User Environment, which allows for quick and easy visualization of all signal paths inside a single window. Working within this user-friendly environment, an audio system designer or installer can clearly view and adjust all input levels, audio DSP processing parameters, mixing points, and output levels. To simplify these adjustments, SpeedNav keyboard navigation ensures efficient and fast navigation through the Graphical User Environment, using just the keyboard on a laptop.

Highest Quality Converters Plus Floating Point DSP
The DMP 128 Plus features studio grade ADCs - analog-to-digital converters and DACs - digital-to-analog converters using professional level 24-bit resolution and 48 kHz sampling, fully preserving the integrity of the original audio signal. The processing power of the 64-bit floating point DSP engine allows for simultaneous audio processing algorithms within the same channel, and across multiple channels, without compromising sound quality. Throughput latency – the normal delay of audio signals due to audio processing – is deterministic, with very low overall latency regardless of the number of channels and processes, so that audio is kept in sync with video. This powerful DSP engine also delivers very wide dynamic range to prevent clipping and fully maintain signal quality.
Fixed Yet Flexible DSP Architecture
The DSP Configurator Software features a fixed layout of DSP processing blocks for each input, output, and virtual bus. Each block in the Graphical User Environment represents a Gain, Dynamics, Delay, Filter, Ducking, or FBS - Feedback Suppression algorithm within the DSP engine. While this architecture is fixed, each block offers flexible options and customizable parameters. For example, the Filter block contains several selectable filters, each of which can be customized as high pass, low pass, bass and treble or parametric EQ. Each processing block can be selectively bypassed.
Emulate and Live Modes
The DSP Configurator Software features an Emulate mode, which provides complete audio system design while working offline on a PC. When connected to the DMP 128 Plus, Live mode enables real-time control of all settings, file updates, and archiving, plus active metering of all input and output channels. In Live mode, integrators can “push” all or part of a configuration to the DMP 128 Plus from the PC, while preserving the existing file. Emulate and Live modes give audio system designers the flexibility to create an entire project from their PC in advance of installation, and then, once they are on-site, use the same software to provide accurate system setup and final optimization.
