Q-SYS Cores

The World’s Most Powerful Software Based DSP Solution for Audio, Video & Control

The central hardware component in any Q-SYS system is the Core. There are currently two Core models that are appropriate for most Cinema applications: Cinema Core 110c and Cinema Core 510c.

Combined with DPA-Q amplifiers and DCS loudspeakers, the Q-SYS™ Cinema Cores provides a cost-effective solution for implementing Q-SYS in cinemas of all sizes. The continuity of the Q-SYS software based DSP platform is unique within the cinema industry and allows the Q-SYS Core to leverage all the features that are available across the entire Q-SYS Ecosystem including complete audio signal processing for all loudspeakers with monitoring and control of all amplifiers, and control of many other devices and components within a cinema complex. It even provides many conferencing functions for using a cinema auditorium for alternate purposes, such as meetings and remote conferencing applications.
