The DMP 128 FlexPlus series of compact Dante Digital Matrix Processors features twelve FlexInput channels with full DSP, including AEC, and Dante connectivity, in only a half rack space. With an extensive mix matrix, a USB audio interface, and analog compatibility, the DMP 128 FlexPlus provides the ability to easily connect and route multiple types of source signals to accommodate diverse analog and digital system requirements. For collaboration applications, the V model includes up to eight VoIP lines. Featuring an ACP bus for audio control panels, an expansion port for bidirectional digital audio connection with a DTP CrossPoint or another DMP, eight audio file players, and configurable macros, the DMP 128 FlexPlus can be used anywhere from a collaboration space, to a large conference room.

FlexPlus - Ideal for Multiple Dante Sources

The Dante-enabled DMP 128 FlexPlus series is ideal for applications that utilize Dante ceiling microphone arrays and other Dante‑enabled devices. With network connectivity for up to 48 Dante sources and 24 Dante destinations, the DMP 128 FlexPlus, featuring a built‑in two‑port Gigabit switch, enables the creation of simplified, cost effective audio systems.

FlexInputs

All twelve main DSP channels of the DMP 128 FlexPlus offer FlexInput source selection to route any Dante input, expansion input, or one of the four mic/line inputs, to a main DSP channel. This enables the DMP 128 FlexPlus to process audio from any source with the full range of DSP capabilities, including AEC.

Dante Connectivity

The DMP 128 FlexPlus provides scalable Dante digital audio transport, with Dante Domain Manager support, over a local area network using standard network protocols. A DMP 128 FlexPlus can be configured to support primary and redundant Dante audio networks, as well as AES67 interoperability.

Acoustic Echo Cancellation

The DMP 128 FlexPlus series includes 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 twelve independent channels of high performance AEC, as well as selectable noise cancellation. AEC processing can be challenged by conditions such as double-talk, when talkers from both ends are speaking simultaneously, and when near end talkers use wireless microphones. Extron AEC features advanced algorithms that deliver fast echo canceler convergence for optimal intelligibility, even in challenging conditions.

The DSP Configurator Software simplifies AEC and noise cancellation setup with a user-friendly interface that provides real-time metering for ERL - Echo Return Loss, ERLE - Echo Return Loss Enhancement, and TER - Total Echo Reduction levels. Guided alerts appear whenever ERL is outside of the optimal range for echo cancellation and DSP templates serve as starting points with routing optimized for AEC workflows. Optional settings include fine adjustments for NLP - Non-Linear Processing to maximize AEC performance in acoustic environments with significant sonic reflections or reverberation.

VoIP - Voice over Internet Protocol Capability

The DMP 128 FlexPlus C V AT includes up to eight SIP 2.0 VoIP lines, with wideband codec support, that can be configured as individual extensions or with multiple call appearance channels to support local conferencing applications. Compatible with select VoIP systems, any single V model of the DMP 128 FlexPlus series can be used for a single VoIP line or as a VoIP farm for up to eight rooms.

USB Audio Interface

The included USB audio interface provides connectivity to a computer for use with soft CODEC applications and computer sourced audio.

Automixer

The DMP 128 FlexPlus series features an automixer with gated and gain sharing modes that can manage 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. As the number of active microphones is doubled, system gain is automatically reduced, uniformly attenuating microphone signal levels to minimize audible changes in the overall sound and the possibility of feedback. For a natural sounding mic mix, the automixer also offers a gain sharing mode which allows all mics to remain on, while the gain for each mic is adjusted in real time to ensure a constant system gain.

Powerful Routing Across Two ProDSP Processors

The DMP EXP expansion port allows two Extron ProDSP 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 expanded 16x16 I/O channel transport between devices allows designers to create audio mixes with advanced I/O and signal management scenarios combining the capabilities of two processors. The expansion port is also available on Extron DTP CrossPoint® matrix switchers. This allows a 16x16 I/O channel transport between the matrix switcher and a DMP 128 FlexPlus to expand the number of available audio inputs for a DTP System, and to offer additional capabilities such as automixing, AEC - Acoustic Echo Cancellation, and VoIP - Voice over Internet Protocol.

Versatile Control Options

Each model is equipped with an ACP audio control port to support the use of Extron Audio Control Panels. ACP control is ideal for systems that do not require a full control system. A DMP 128 FlexPlus can also be controlled and configured via RS-232 serial control, Ethernet control, or USB. Each model also includes two digital I/O ports, which allow for external triggering such as mic activation and muting.

ProDSP

Extron’s exclusive ProDSP is engineered from the ground up using a powerful 64‑bit floating point DSP engine to provide very wide dynamic range and reduce the potential for clipping. ProDSP also utilizes studio grade 24‑bit audio converters with 48 kHz sampling to maintain audio signal transparency. ProDSP is loaded with powerful, easy‑to‑configure tools to control level, adaptive gain, automixing, dynamics, filters, delay, ducking, loudness, feedback suppression, and AEC.

Easy-to-Use DSP Configurator Software

The power of ProDSP is easily harnessed with the DSP Configurator Software. The flexible on‑screen layout offers fast access to all of the digital audio signal processing tools. Designers can quickly get a snapshot view of the entire audio system, including processing blocks and routing assignments, all at once.
