Q-SYS is a cloud-manageable audio, video and control platform built around a modern, standards-based IT architecture.
The Q-SYS OS serves as the software-based singular foundation that drives and manages a multitude of Q-SYS Products within the platform, including native software, services and hardware, designed by QSC. Additionally, its modern IT architecture and a set of development tools (called “Q-SYS Open”) enable an entire Ecosystem of third-party integrations developed by approved/endorsed Q-SYS Partners as well as a worldwide community of Q-SYS programmers and developers.
Software-based foundation for audio, video & control. Flexible, scalable and performance driven, it was designed using industry-standard principles and mission-critical technologies. It includes a robust audio engine, video engine and control engine providing processing at the software layer, with a robust OS administrative layer that operates holistically, rather than requiring an integrator to spend time separately programming and integrating audio, video and control/automation.
Native software, services & hardware designed by QSC. This comprehensive portfolio of devices and software is driven by Q-SYS OS and offers the flexibility to support a multitude of markets and applications.

Third-party integration endorsed by QSC. Q-SYS Partners create software, services and hardware that integrate into the Q-SYS Ecosystem and have been fully vetted and endorsed by QSC. The solutions that they develop can be integrated into the Q-SYS OS and operate alongside native Q-SYS Products. Q-SYS Partners collaborate with QSC teams to develop and verify their solutions upfront, and then continue to work with QSC in their support and maintenance for our mutual customers.
Industry-standard protocols & developer tools to enable open third-party development. Q-SYS Open is a collection of open standards and published developer tools to enable third-party development within Q-SYS. The Q-SYS Open tools take full advantage of the industry hardened Q-SYS OS, namely its utilization of open industry standards and protocols, along with a collection of available developer tools for Q-SYS integration.
Since the Q-SYS OS drives the entire Q-SYS processing line, simply choose the right Q-SYS Core processor based on the digital/analog IO requirements and the scale of your unique installation.
Q-SYS full-featured control engine features unique drag-and-drop integration to quickly add native Q-SYS devices to a system, along with an IT standardized toolkit to build custom scripts and integrate third-party devices into Q-SYS.
Q-SYS is built on standard IT protocols, offering flexibility to choose the best networking solution for the installation, whether a plug-and-play solution for stand-alone AV networks or manual network switch configuration for converged network scenarios.
A single network connection to a Q-SYS Core allows you to remotely monitor and manage all connected devices in a Q-SYS system, including Q-SYS and third-party devices.
