WHAT IS THE
Created from the ground-up, Q-SYS is a software-based platform built around an open IT-friendly ecosystem. It uniquely leverages the power of Intel processing, the robustness and mission critical reliability of a Linux operating system, and the interoperability of IEEE networking standards. This IT-centric layered approach allows QSC to easily migrate the Q-SYS Ecosystem to other Intel platforms as they introduce new, faster chipsets, and to other off-the-shelf hardware. Furthermore, its usage of IT standard protocols makes the Q-SYS Ecosystem highly extensible for future IT functions and platforms.
NO ADDITIONAL HARDWARE REQUIRED
Q-SYS offers audio, video and control (AV&C) features at the software level, which means you don’t need dedicated hardware like most competitive systems require. Invest in a platform that develops over time through software firmware upgrades. Below are just a few of the built-in features currently available through Q-SYS.
At the top of the real-time processing engine is the Q-SYS AVC processing where real-time DSP lives and user facing functions such as acoustic echo cancellation, VoIP integration, AV Bridging, third party control, etc.
The entire range of Q-SYS Core processors and family of Q-SYS peripherals builds on the server-client philosophy, and leverages Intel chipsets rather than proprietary DSP chipsets.
Q-SYS leveraged the interoperability of IEEE standards to develop a collection of standards-based, QSC-built Linux network drivers (Q-LAN, AES67, Dante, AVB, WAN streaming) that offer a much higher and more accurate process rate than what is typically availably on standard drivers.
Built on top of Intel, QSC engineers started with a mainstream Linux operating system that is open source and developed customized real-time extensions to handle networked audio, video and control processing.
SCALABLE & FLEXIBLE
IN-ROOM / LOCAL PROCESSING
A single Q-SYS Core processor, such as the Q-SYS Core 110f processor, can handle nearly any small installation including local inputs and outputs, audio and control processing, conference camera routing, endpoint bridging, advanced echo cancellation processing and EQ.
Large enterprises can deploy audio, video and control (AV&C) processing from the data center with the next-generation Q-SYS Enterprise Core processors. This paradigm allows IT to centralize all processing, control and monitoring of every piece of technology in the entire building, while offering full redundancy on nearly every Q-SYS component, just as you would for any other IT service on their network. This is the full experience of AV/IT convergence!
Q-SYS IS AUDIO
