Network I/O Peripherals

Q-SYS I/O peripherals help connect the power of the Q-SYS Core processor to the outside world of audio. I/O cards provide connectivity to analog and digital sources and destinations, while the I/O-Frame and I/O-22 allow local or remote inputs or outputs anywhere that a standard Gigabit Ethernet network is available with connectivity back to the Core.

I/O Frame

Versatile Q-SYS I/O - Network Interface

The Q-SYS I/O Frame can be used to physically locate inputs and outputs connections near their sources and destinations. In this manner the I/O Frame provides the remote points of connection that interface Q-SYS™ with other components of the audio system, including microphones, mixers and power amplifiers.  

  • Dual Gigabit Ethernet connections route the audio signals through the Core for processing.
  • Each I/O Frame can house up to four I/O cards enabling up to 16 channels of input and/or output in a single unit.

I/O Frame 8s (Discontinued)

Versatile Q-SYS I/O - Network Interface

Discontinuation Notice: The I/O Frame 8s has been discontinued. Please contact your local Dealer for more details.

The Q-SYS I/O Frame 8s can be used to physically locate inputs and outputs connections near their sources and destinations. In this manner the I/O Frame 8s provides the remote points of connection that interface Q-SYS™ with other components of the audio system, including microphones, mixers and power amplifiers.  

  • Dual Gigabit Ethernet connections route the audio signals through the Core for processing.
  • Each I/O Frame 8s can house up to eight I/O cards enabling up to 32 channels of input and/or output in a single unit.

I/O-22

Multi-purpose Q-SYS I/O Peripheral

The Q-SYS I/O-22, is a compact, standalone unit designed for use when audio sources and destinations are physically spread out, such as the individual seats in a conferencing system or individual rooms in a multi-room venue. Providing two mic/line inputs and two line outputs, the I/O-22 is ideal for applications such as legislative or judicial chambers, meeting rooms, ballrooms, ancillary zones, classrooms, VIP suites, and stage patching.

• Connects directly to the Gigabit Ethernet network via redundant Q-LAN ports (RJ-45 Ethernet connectors).
• Powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or 24 VDC.
• Includes an 8.5 watt mono amplifier to drive a local monitor speaker.
• Other connections include a scriptable RS-232 port and eight GPIO ports.
