SMART AUTO INPUT SELECT (SAIS)
The exclusive Smart Auto Input Select function by Better Music Builder is designed for commercial use to save you time by prioritizing audio inputs automatically.
When multiple input sources are connected to the system, SAIS scans for activity in the input sources and sets priority according to its programming. DVD input will always have priority. If DVD input is active, it will be chosen. However, if DVD input is inactive, SAIS will automatically switch to VOD input. This feature is mimics the screen saver on your PC. It activates when there’s no activity on the DVD input. It provides commercial businesses chances to display special promotions to their loyal customers when the machine is idle.
DVD: DVD has top priority. When all 3 inputs are active, DVD has priority.
VOD: VOD has priority when DVD is inactive. However, when both DVD and VOD are active, DVD has priority.
AUX: Have to be manually selected when all three inputs are active. Once it is selected, machine will not automatically switch to DVD or VOD.
The specially designed Smart Auto Input Select is featured in our new line of products, which includes the Mixer DX-3000 G2 and DX-6000 and the Mixing Amplifier DX-288 G3.
LED The New Trend of Video Display
LED (Light Emitting Diode) is not an unknown thing to the public. Indeed people use it for many things including, lighting, and also sign display. However, there are not many people who know that or have seen LED being used as a video display screen.
It is a strange and somewhat confounding concept that a lighting application can also be used for video. LED follows the evolution of video media, from the Cathode Ray Tubes, to Plasma screens, and now the most popular LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). Each generation of these evolution made video media more extravagant, lovelier, clearer, but also more efficient–allowing for not only faster progress but also solution to our environmental and resource problems.
Therefore, the bigger question remains: What kind of contribution can LED and LED video contribute to the public? LED uses less energy than most light bulbs and remain brighter with lower energy levels, most LED displays also use recycle material, newer LED also emit less heat, making LED more energy efficient and environmental sustainable. For example, an LED highway sign uses only 5% of the energy required by older electrical signs. The increase development and adoption of LED will help nations reach their environmental sustainability goals.
What is the LED video display?
Nick Holonyak Jr. is credited as the father of the LED. He made the first red LED in the early 1960s. Since then LED develop into a wider spectrum of colors, sizes, and applications. The first LED had limited uses as it wasn’t as bright as the contemporary sources, they were used as remote control indicators and in lighting for watches and calculators. However, continual development of the LED improved their efficiency, cost, and brightness making it a better and more efficient source of lighting. It is theorized by Haitz Law that LED doubles it efficiency every three years.
The latest technological advancement in LED is OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode), using organic material. The OLED is a paper thin display screen. The OLED is lighter, wider, brighter and more efficient than current LCD. This strikes a possible future where video can be displayed by using a sticker or piece of paper.
There are a wide variety of different LED which can be used for different applications. The first LEDs were use as light indicators on remotes and machines, but now they advanced to use as indicators on signs on roads making traveling easier. LED is also used as lighting in car dashboard, because of its higher illumination it is bright enough even when viewed in front of a sunny field.
Currently LED is being used mainly for lighting because of its efficiency and sustainability. It lasts much longer than conventional light bulbs and only uses a fraction of their power for lighting.
Many LEDs we see today are used as status indicators and displays in roads and stage displays. Such as large sport stadium displays, message displays used in airports and railway stations, as destination display signs for trains, buses, and boats, and road signs.
In recent years lighting have begun use of LED from desk lamps, to replacement bulbs, and even street lights.
Due to the quick reaction time of LED, they can be control effectively through programming. In fact, LED are also used in aquariums to simulate day and night lighting conditions for underwater environments. The reaction efficiency also render it ideal to be used in stage lighting because it can change color easily and emits a lower heat.
LEDs are very reliable as vehicle lights because of their long life and fast switching times. For example, they are used in brake lights, and turn signals to improve the safety of roads. In fact, LED are now so efficient and reliable that they are increasingly being used for emergency applications.

The design principle for the new DX-6000 Mixer is flexibility. Customers usually buy a great quality system only to end up with their new system not compatible with their current set up. We recognize our customers have different audio and entertainment needs, therefore, we created the DX-6000 Mixer which provides customers a system that is compatible with any set up they may have, without lacking in performance. The DX-6000 Mixer is designed to cater to your ideal music and audio connection.
DX-6000 audio/video effect processor that can provide five divisions (5-D) pro audio for large format use. The DX-6000 processor needs to operate with three powered amplifiers (i.e. one powered amplifier to drive two center vocal monitor speakers in parallel, another powered amplifier to drive Group-A speakers for high and mid range frequency, and third powered amplifier to drive Group-B speakers for full range frequency).
DX-6000 provides low frequency line out to one or two powered subwoofers. The whole concept borrows the idea of a 5-channel home theater to produce a live sound effect in our system. You can use this system for public and commercial use. Better Music Builder have three different models of powered amplifiers to operate with the Dynamic Fusion System.

What is a CPU-controlled amplifier/mixer?
A CPU-controlled amplifier/mixer is a machine controlled by a built-in Central Processing Unit (CPU) like a computer.
The CPU controls the lock function on both music and echo volume. It presets both music and echo volume at certain level (for instance, the level is locked at 40 dB). Since the lock function is controlled by the CPU, to release the lock on the music and echo volume, you need to adjust it from the machine manually with a special screw driver that comes with the machine.
For example, you cannot turn the master button for “MUSIC VOLUME” to adjust the music volume to a higher level than a level that is locked by the CPU (for instance, locked at 35dB). Please note that the music volume level ranges from 0 dB to 90 dB. However, you can adjust it to a lower music volume level (in this case any level that is lower than 35dB) by turning the master button for “MUSIC VOLUME”. To unlock (or reset) the music volume level preset by the CPU, you need to use a special screw drive to adjust the volume level at the “MUSIC LOCK” under the master button for “MUSIC VOLUME.”
For the same token, you cannot turn the master button for “ECHO VOLUME” to adjust the echo volume because it is locked by the CPU. Under the MIC Effect Mode, the CPU has preset the echo volume at different levels for 1, 2, 3 (for instance, 20dB, 30dB and 40dB for 1, 2 and 3 respectively) and give you the option to adjust to any echo volume level you want at FIX. To unlock the echo volume levels for 1, 2 and 3, first press the “MIC EFFECT MODE” and then press “OFF.” Next, press the “UP” and “Down” button for adjusting the echo volume level.
