Crestron Releases Procise™; The Ultimate In Surround Sound Processing, Amplification And Cabling

Crestron PROCISE™ Sets a New Standard for Professional-Grade, Multi-Channel Audio Processing for HD Home Theaters and Corporate Boardrooms

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, July 26, 2010 - Crestron today announced the release of PROCISE™, a professional audio processing product line that creates a completely immersive audio experience. The PSPHD high -definition 7.3 surround sound audio processor is uniquely designed for both commercial and residential applications. Three independent subwoofer outputs provide a powerful bass sensation that is evenly distributed to every seat. Automatic room calibration delivers unprecedented clarity and tone instantly. An integrated HDMI switcher with HDCP support ensures compatibility with DRM protected content and equipment. Intelligent pairing enables sophisticated communication between the PSPHD and the PROAMP -7X400 or PROAMP -7X250 7 -channel amplifiers.


PROCISE is an elegant technology showpiece for any home theater or boardroom. The beautiful front panel of the PSPHD features vintage -looking digital VU meters and spectrum analysis that graphically display audio and diagnostics while impressing clients or guests. The built -in 3 -channel line mixer and distribution amplifier in the PSPHD enable the combination of multi -channel HD audio and video teleconferencing. Dolby® TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS -HD Master Audio™ 7.1 support the latest lossless audio formats to deliver the full experience of Blu -ray Disc™ and other high -definition media.

"With PROCISE, we've created another landmark achievement in engineering and design," says Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. "PROCISE can adjust the settings for each speaker to perfection. You hear clear and balanced sound in every seat. It doesn't matter if you're in an acoustically treated room or not."

The companion PROAMP amplifiers are precision -matched to the PSPHD in form and performance. Using a simple Ethernet connection, the PSPHD processor and PROAMP amplifier automatically pair, enabling seamless control and monitoring of the amplifier through the PSPHD front panel.

The PROAMP 7X400 model delivers 400 watts at 8 ohms on all seven channels for an amazing home theater experience. The 3 -channel line input mixer in the PSPHD supports direct interface with mic mixers, teleconferencing codecs and paging systems for commercial applications. "Imagine being able to take a surround sound presentation, add the microphone and channel it back through the surrounds," explains Bruno. "It's so much easier and more affordable than setting up a separate PA system."

Balanced and unbalanced outputs feed additional listening zones or recording equipment, and balanced connectivity supports the use of long cables and produces pristine, noise -free audio. Mono and stereo outputs independently deliver an unprocessed mix of the entire surround sound signal. Professional AES/EBU digital audio inputs enable connectivity to very high end studio and broadcast equipment. PROCISE XLR Balanced Audio Interconnect Cables ensure high -end, studio -grade performance and reliability.

Setup, control, and monitoring are accessed via the front panel or Crestron PROCISE Tools software. Front panel controls can be locked to prevent unauthorized access.
