    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.
