The BACP DSTR-20 is a new, more economical Penthouse Reader - completely pre-aligned and ready to install. The unit is designed to read Dolby© Digital Soundtracks with better performance than current Basement Readers.

BACP/USL introduces a lower cost “penthouse” Digital Soundtrack Reader entirely compatible with the Dolby DA20, CP500 and CP650 Processors. The DSTR-20 Digital Reader offers a number of advancements that include longer LED life and a lower basic error rate. It's performance is equal to the Dolby Cat. No. 702 and is superior to all existing basement-style Digital Readers. Power for the CCD electronics and Red LED is provided from the Dolby© processor so there is no need to provide 110 or 220 Volt power to the reader.

It attaches directly to Christie, Century, Simplex, Ballantyne and Cinemeccanica projectors. Installation is very quick and easy, typically 30 minutes or less. The LED module is changeable with only a screwdriver although our experience with the RSTR-2000 Analog Reader indicates the LEDs will last at least 5 years before a change is needed.

There is also a Video Status light that glows green with adequate video level. It will glow red indicating a need for service. The service procedure may be as simple as cleaning the imaging lens, but in any case signals there is a need for attention.
