Q-SYS Designer Software:  Support Policy

QSC strives to bring new software solutions and feature updates to better service our customers. To maximize business performance, you are encouraged to transition systems to the latest Q-SYS Designer Software release.

To ease the transition period from the most recent prior to the current version, QSC will provide technical support, on a best-effort basis, on the most recent prior release of Q-SYS Designer Software (annotated as “End of Life – Supported”) for a period up to twelve (12) months.  After twelve months, the prior software version will no longer be supported by QSC.

Version 9

Featured Updates

Increased security and integrity for Q-SYS

  • Implements cryptographic QSC digital signatures for all subsequent Q-SYS Core OS Platform updates, which protects your system from the installation of illegitimate or potentially unsafe firmware.

Note: Firmware signing is a requirement for cloud-based firmware updates via Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager. If you plan on future remote updates, your Core processor must first be updated to Q-SYS Designer Software version 9.1.0 or higher.

Control Updates

  • Remap UCI controls (in Beta): Provides a quick and painless way to reassign control IDs for multiple UCI controls from a single dialog box. This tool eliminates the need to remap controls on an individual basis, which is especially useful when duplicating UCIs across an organization.
  • HTML5 UCI Viewer improvements: Including the ability to dynamically change a style via UCI Style Controller.
  • Advanced TSC-G2 touch screen support notice: Q-SYS Designer Software v9.1.2 will be required to support any TSC-G2 touch screen models that ship after August 1, 2021. A notice will be included in the product package for any touch screen that requires this firmware.

Video Updates

  • New AV Stream Router component: Similar to the Q-SYS camera router, this new component simplifies designs with larger quantities of Q-SYS network video endpoints by letting you route multiple AV streams to multiple destinations with a single video matrix.
  • PTZ manual focus for PTZ-IP conference cameras: The Status/Control component for both the Q-SYS PTZ-IP camera and I/O-USB Bridge now accept manual Camera Focus values, which can also be saved in Snapshots or used in conjunction with Control pins.

Audio Updates

Now available for the Q-SYS Core Nano and Core 8 Flex:

  • Multi-track playback feature licenses for simultaneous playback of 32 tracks
  • Media drive upgrade options (128 GB, 256 GB or 512 GB)

New Cinema inventory items

  • QSC is eliminating the need for its Cinema-specific instance of QDS by including all cinema-related inventory items and components in the standard installation. This includes QSC cinema loudspeakers, amplifiers, and streaming I/O devices.

IMPORTANT ADVANCED NOTICE for the Core 110f

  • Starting in the upcoming Q-SYS Designer Software v9.2.0, QSC will introduce new features that improve camera imaging and USB Video Bridging performance and capabilities. In order to take full advantage of these new software features using the Core 110f's onboard AV USB bridge, the cable infrastructure between the Core 110f's USB Device Port (Type B) and the PC's USB Host Port (type A) must be USB 3.0 compatible, including the cable, port, and​ anything in between. If you choose to use USB 2.0 infrastructure after updating to v9.2.0, AV bridging performance will be limited to 540p. Note that this does not affect other Q-SYS bridging devices.


This version of Q-SYS Designer Software is no longer available for download.  

We highly recommend that you update your system to the latest Q-SYS software version to take advantage of newer features and improvements.
