    QSC Shoots and Scores at Derby County Football Club's Pride Park Stadium

    Derby County Football Club claims to have the loudest and best sounding stadium in the UK, having installed redundant Q-SYS™ Core 1100 processors, along with QSC CXD 4.3Q amplifiers and QSC Q-SYS I/O Frame processors. Replacing the sound system in any stadium is no simple job, and often comes with a big budget attached. However, Derby County had keen ambitions and the investment paid off, with the Championship Club now boasting a sound system one would normally associate with a rock concert, rather than a football match. Roland Hemming, Principal Consultant at RH Consulting explained the process and thinking behind the installation: “The system at Derby County had been in place for around 11 years, but under the new ownership of Mel Morris, upgrading the audio system was one of a number of projects that he was very keen to invest in.” “Ultimately, Mel’s brief was…

    ALBANY, NY – 27th July 2017 – [De] - QSC, LLC and WyreStorm, a leading specialist in AV signal management and control over IP, HDBaseT and HDMI, have announced integration between the QSC Q-SYS™ Platform and WyreStorm’s award-winning NetworkHD™ AV over IP solutions.

    Pirates 5 Has Grand Premiere in Shanghai

    Last March at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, one of the highlights of the cinema industry’s largest annual trade event was a screening of Disney’s upcoming blockbuster, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”, the latest in the Pirates franchise. Each year, the aptly-named 4,000 seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace is transformed into the world’s largest movie theatre, a colossal joint effort between QSC, Dolby, Boston Light and Sound and the Colosseum technical crew. Disney executives were so thrilled with the outcome that they invited QSC and Dolby to Shanghai to do it again – this time for the worldwide premiere of the film in the Grand Theatre at the Shanghai Disney Resort. Like the Colosseum at Caesar’s, the Grand Theatre was not originally designed to be a movie theatre; it is normally used for theatrical stage productions. At over 1,000 seats, it’s larger than…

    Jason Bourne Premieres with QSC Sound

    QSC Headquarters, Costa Mesa, CA (August 11, 2016) - When scouting for a location for the premiere of Jason Bourne, Universal Pictures chose Las Vegas, an obvious choice since it’s the scene of the film’s climactic and chaotic car chase. But finding a venue large and grand enough to launch the film was another matter – there aren’t many movie theatres that can accommodate the thousands of celebrities and industry insiders expected to attend.  Knowing that CinemaCon, the theatrical exhibition industry’s largest trade event, is held each year at Caesars Palace and that screenings are successfully done in the Colosseum, Universal felt confident that the 4,000 seat venue could provide a fitting launch pad for the new $120 million action thriller.  The bigger challenge: the Colosseum was never built as a movie theatre.  Converting the massive room from a live performance…
