Lexicon today introduced its QLI-32 Quantum Logic Immersion cinema processor, designed to deliver up to 32 channels of surround sound in professional cinema applications. The new QLI-32 interfaces with a theater’s media source and existing cinema processor to provide a multi-dimensional listening experience with left, center, right, surround, rear and height channels, all via HARMAN’s proprietary Quantum Logic Immersion surround-processing technology
The Lexicon QLI-32 utilizes Quantum Logic technology to provide up to 32 channels of immersive surround-sound audio over BLU-link from any mono stereo, 5.1- or 7.1-channel program material. The Lexicon QLI-32 claims exclusive signal processing techniques to actively analyze the acoustical information in the audio mix and re-create a full three-dimensional sonic environment with width, depth and height by identifying and positioning objects in the sound field – all without adding elements to the original mix. Because the QLI-32 works with existing audio systems, installation costs are reduced and any stereo or multi-channel content can be made immersive.
The QLI-32 features an eight-channel analog 25-pin connector, two eight-channel AES RJ-45 inputs, a BLU-link (two RJ-45) input and a BLU-link (two RJ-45) output. It also provides an Ethernet port and RJ-45 control connections. The QLI-32 provides Auto EQ per SMPTE 202 and offers 1/3-octave graphic EQ for each of its 32 output channels as well as parametric low-frequency EQ. The QLI-32 can be easily configured via its web-based interface and its simple front-panel control layout provides ready indication of operational status. Measuring 1U rack space high, the QLI-32 installs easily into an equipment rack.
