DBX 12x6 Digital Zone Processor 1260m 

The ZonePRO 1260m 12x6 Digital Zone Processor designed by DBX can distribute up to twelve audio sources across six mono output zones. The included software will be allowing 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. The 1260m will suit a banquet hall or house of worship with versatile routing and plentiful connectivity.

The ZonePRO 1260m's pre-configured architecture keeps the input/output addresses simple and fixed. It is having six balanced Euroblock mic/line inputs with gain control, four mono-summed unbalanced RCA input pairs, and an S/PDIF input for up to two channels of digital audio. The DBX 1260m’s six zones output from balanced, line-level Euroblock connectors.

Your audio system can be controlled and fine-tuned in the ZonePRO Designer software once the analog cables are connected 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. For making the most of each source, the ZonePRO 1260m also has independent EQ and two selectable DSP inserts for each of the 12 inputs.

ZonePRO Designer Software

Compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, the ZonePRO Designer software provides a wide range of options for configuring the 1260m's inputs and outputs. Software inserts can apply DSP effects processing to sources and zones, and be automatically set to change on a daily schedule.

DSP effects processing

Corrective and dynamics processing can be applied individually to each of the input sources and output zones through the ZonePRO Designer software. Effects include AutoWarmth, automatic gain control, ambient noise compensation, notch filter, compressor, gate, de-esser, and advanced feedback suppression.

User friendly pre-configured input/output architecture

The analog cabling of the dbx ZonePRO 1260m is straight-forward and uncomplicated, making your inputs/outputs much easier to recognize and control from within the software.

Supports ZC-series remote controls

The ZC-series remote controls can toggle volume, input source, and Scenes. They extend from the 1260m by CAT 5 Ethernet cable, and can be mounted in an output zone up to 1,000 feet (304.8 m) away.

PC and third-party connectivity

The 1260m can connect to a Windows-based PC or a third-party controller by either Ethernet or RS-232 serial port.
