    QSC Demonstrates Q-SYS for Immersive Sound

    During exhibit hours at ShowEast 2013 this week in Hollywood, Florida, QSC Audio Products, LLC, is demonstrating a proof of concept of an end-to-end solution for the playback of object-based immersive sound program material in their booth #709 on the trade show floor. The demonstrations highlight the capability of the QSC Q-SYS audio signal processing and routing platform to render MDA (multi-dimensional audio) files in real-time.

    Q-SYS at The Dub Stage

    The Dub Stage, one of the top audio post-production facilities in Hollywood, has chosen QSC Q-SYS to support its audio signal processing and routing.  Q-SYS is a complete digital audio network and processing platform that allows complete flexibility and control of complex audio systems.  Originally developed for sophisticated commercial audio installations, Q-SYS can be scaled up or down to cost-effectively accommodate systems of almost any size, including 5.1, 7.1, 11.1, 13.1 and MDA (Multi-Dimensional Audio) cinema audio formats. While the new immersive cinema sound formats have expanded the palette for sound designers and mixers, they have also significantly increased the complexity of the post-production environment.  Just a few years ago most films were mixed only in either 5.1 or 7.1 formats.  Today, as the digital cinema transition is nearing completion, the…
