JBL DrivePack® Technology Evolves With New DPDA Input Module Featuring BSS OmniDrive HD™ Signal Processing

JBL Professional is introducing its new DPDA (DrivePack Digital Audio) input module with BSS Omnidrive HD signal processing onboard, for use with all JBL DrivePack®-equipped powered speaker systems. This full-featured product leverages the modular nature of JBL DrivePack technology, and can be easily installed as an upgrade to all DP Series fullsize, midsize and compact line array elements and subwoofers along with all of the premium powered system models in JBL’s Venue Performance Series.

The HiQnet™-compatible DPDA input module, remotely controlled with Harman’s System Architect software, can function as an audio and networking technology upgrade to enhance the performance of any DrivePack-equipped speaker system, regardless of model or application. BSS Omnidrive HD signal processing with F.I.R.filters and LevelMAX™ multi-stage limiting makes the advantages of BSS’ legendary signal processing algorithms available to JBL powered speaker system owners. In addition, other key features include both XLR and rugged Ethercon connectors plus a native Ethernet switch for simplified cabling and improved connectivity, AES/EBU digital audio for cleaner, clearer audio performance without the need for external converter products, and a unique loudspeaker box and array I.D. mechanism that makes the setup of complex touring systems go more smoothly.

“The DPDA module appears that it will finally give self-powered system users the missing link to a fully digital AES3 signal flow, all the way from the digital mixer to the powered speaker arrays,? observed Jim Risgin, Vice President, Onstage Audio. “No longer does the user have to rely on a network transport protocol to get digital audio to the powered speaker. Combine this with its extensive feature set: redundant signal path, single-cable interconnect, BSS Processing as well as your choice of mechanical or software addressing, and JBL’s new DPDA module gives the system engineer both flexibility and ease of everyday use. Gone are the days that required a computer and lots of time just to reconfigure arrays in a networked system every time it left the shop. I believe that the ease of use and leading-edge DSP performance in a DPDA-equipped system will deliver everything a user needs.?

In addition to the availability of retrofit DPDA input modules for upgrading existing JBL DrivePack-equipped speaker system inventories worldwide, JBL will be incorporating the DPDA module into all powered speaker models in the VERTEC® DP Series and Venue Performance Series product lines.
