Digital Conferencing Processor

SRP £3,600.00 + VAT

The BSS DCP-555 Digital Conferencing Processor is the ultimate solution for audio or web conferencing in medium or large meeting spaces, providing industry-leading sound processing and automated mixing of microphones, PC audio, and other audio sources, with acoustic echo cancellation ensuring the meeting is clear and effective.

Audio from multiple microphones can be output as a single, optimized signal over USB, making it perfect for web conferencing using the AMX Acendo Core or BYOD applications. With the inclusion of onboard VoIP connectivity, rooms can be equipped with audio conferencing without the need for a separate IP phone in the room.

The DCP-555 can support up to four rooms simultaneously using bidirectional VoIP connections. The DCP-555also offers a range of onboard I/O connection options, with AES67, BLU link, USB and 16x8 analog audio all built in. This provides easy compatibility with other HARMAN and third-party audio devices, with GPIO andrelays available for simplified control.

To further streamline integration with other HARMAN devices, the DCP-555 includes built-in microphone tunings and JBL speaker tuning presets, offering simple, IT-centric configuration. When using the DCP-555along with AMX SVSI networked AV solutions, encoder syncing is available to ensure the audio and video signals are perfectly aligned for an optimal experience without any manual setup. These features allow integrators to easily design and configure rooms with minimal complexity.

  • Built-In Web Server Interface
  • Configure the DCP-555 using the browser on any compatible device connected to the network—no additional software or complicated DSP programming required!
  • Template-Based Configuration
  • Create your own configuration or load a template from the BSS website, edit to taste, then save it to your computer for backup and use in future installations.
  • 4 Bi-Directional VoIP Connections
  • Use a single DCP-555 to provide audio conferencing for up to 4 meeting rooms simultaneously, without the need for a phone in each room.
  • Analog Audio I/O (16x8)
  • Includes 16 analog mic/line inputs with independently selectable +48V phantom power and 8 line-level analog outputs.
  • AES67 I/O (16x16)
  • Support for up to 16x16 channels of networked audio distribution to/from any AES67-compliant device.
  • BLU Link I/O (28x32)
  • 28x32 BLU link expansion. Easily interface audio with other BLU-link equipped HARMAN® audio products, such as BSS Soundweb London processors, BSS BLU-USB interfaces, or Crown® amplifiers.
  • USB Port (2x2 Audio Interface)
  • Use the DCP-555 as a USB audio interface with a room PC or AMX® Acendo Core for web conferencing. If additional USB connections are required, expand the system with up to 4 BSS BLU-USB interfaces (sold separately).
  • 28x12 Routing
  • The DCP-555 provides routing for a total of 28 inputs and 12 discreet outputs (using any combination of analog, VoIP, BLU link, AES67, or USB). Each output can also be mirrored to up to 7 additional outputs, allowing signals to be routed to multiple outputs simultaneously.
  • Built-In DSP
  • Includes AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation) on the first 12 inputs, 4-band PEQ with high-pass filter on every input, four assignable auto-mixers, and 4-band PEQ with high-pass filter, limiting, and polarity inversion on every output.
  • GPIO + Relays
  • Connect to other devices for push-to-talk, mute, and volume control. Includes 16 control inputs (voltage or contact closure), 6 logic control outputs, and 2 relay outputs.
