Joystick Panorama Module for Mono and Stereo Signals with 5.1 Surround Output
The W752 is designed for V700 console frames or custom build frames and cannot be used in standard frames.
A Joystick surround panorama controller for use with mono and stereo input signals .
The operation with mono or stereo input signals is possible. If a mono signal is used both of the stereo inputs must be connected.
3 controls determine the position of the stereo input signal in the surround room. The joystick regulates the 3 front channels and the surround channels LS and RS in parallel. The setting of the divergence control determines the operation of the joystick as far as the front channels are concerned. If the divergence control is at its center position, only the left and right channels are driven.
The center channel is driven by a mono signal that is produced by an integrated matrix that sums the input signal L and R. Setting the divergence control all to the right changes the regulation in that way that at the front center position of the joystick all front channels are on and driven with a level of 0 dB. Setting the joystick all to front left leaves the left channel unchanged, center and right channels are muted. On the way from the front center position to the left, the right channel and the center channel are faded continously down. Setting the divergence control all to the left changes this principle. At the front center position of the joystick only the center channel is driven . All to the left again only the left channel is driven.
The front/surround function is implemented by moving the joystick from front to rear. while the front channels L, C and R are faded down and the levels of the surround channels LS and RS are increased. The attenuation at the center position is 3 dB. The relation of the surround channels is determined by the left right setting of the joystick. In any position of all this controls the left input channel is fed to the LS surround channel and the right input channel is fed to the RS channel.
An additional control is used to drive the LFE channel. This control operates like an auxiliary send. Like the center channel the LFE is driven with a mono signal. The calibrated control operates independent of all the other controls.
The inputs and outputs of the surround Joystick are electronically balanced. Addtional zero ohm current outputs for the direct connection to V700 Bus rails are also implemented.
