The dbx ZonePRO 1260m 12x6 Digital Zone Processor can distribute up to twelve audio sources across six mono output zones. The included software will allow you to adapt the input/outputs quickly to fit your needs. The ZonePRO 1260m features an interactive front panel with an LCD display, comprehensive signal metering, user-specified controls, and paging broadcast buttons. With versatile routing and plentiful connectivity, the 1260m will suit a banquet hall or house of worship.
The ZonePRO 1260m's pre-configured architecture keeps the input/output addresses fixed and simple. It has six balanced Euroblock mic/line inputs with gain control, four mono-summed unbalanced RCA input pairs, and a S/PDIF input for up to two channels of digital audio. Its six zones output from balanced, line-level Euroblock connectors.
Once the analog cables are connected, your audio system can be controlled and fine-tuned in the ZonePRO Designer software from your Windows-based PC. The output zones all have individual tone controls, including AutoWarmth and one DSP insert, for optimally tuning the speaker system to the room. To make the most of each source, the ZonePRO 1260m also has independent EQ and two selectable DSP inserts for each of the 12 inputs.
The front panel of the 1260m has Lightpipe metering for each output and lets you alter level settings in a moment's notice. It also has Threshold meters that light up as dynamics processing on the outputs is triggered.
The ZonePRO Designer software can be set and forgot, or it can be programmed with "Scene" changes that take effect automatically throughout the day. If you're using the ZonePRO 1260m in a restaurant that gets busier as the night goes on, an increased volume and bass response could be set to engage daily at 10pm. A subwoofer could be attached to its own zone output, and set to only be in use between 11pm and 1am.
In addition to programmed changes, the ZonePRO 1260m can be controlled manually with dbx ZC-series remote controls. Wallmounted within output zones, ZC controls vary from a simple volume control to a rotary input-source selector. The ZonePRO 1260m supports up to 12 remote controls.
The Link Bus allows the ZonePRO 1260m's inputs to be routed to another ZonePRO product to double its output zones. Up to 3 ZonePRO processors can be daisy-chained.
