Digital signal processing or DSP refers to manipulating analog data into a digital format. DSP programming can be used to manipulate different types of information, such as sound and images. What this means is that DSP programming can be used to run A/V systems through existing Ethernet cables. This technique can be used to create networked media systems. This can be a cost-effective system because we are using the existing wiring infrastructure. Using DSP can create a superior audio experience. This works great for paging, conferencing and sound systems.
Some of the benefits of using DSP and a networked media system are cost savings, efficiency, and flexibility. It is also easier to scale the project by using existing wiring and adding new wiring on an as needed basis. This system also provides for interoperability. The network can support multiple systems simultaneously using the same infrastructure. Installation is also easier and more cost-effective, since the existing wiring can be incorporated into the new system.
When incorporating a networked media system using DSP it is possible to have a centralized or decentralized network. A centralized network is efficient and cost-effective with all of the DSP in one location. A decentralized network will share resources, but will allow for optimization of resources as needed. Using DSP is a great option for conferencing, paging and room to room sound reinforcement. Finding an A/V company with qualified DSP programmers can make it possible for you to have an affordable, scalable DSP communications system.
