Core 110c (for Cinema)

Q-SYS Unified Core Processor

Combined with DPA-Q amplifiers and DCS loudspeakers, the Q-SYS™ Cinema Core 110c provides a cost-effective solution for implementing Q-SYS in cinemas of all sizes.

The continuity delivered by Q-SYS is unique within the cinema industry. A software-based approach driven by the Q-SYS OS allows the Q-SYS Core 110c to leverage all the features that are available across the entire Q-SYS Platform including complete audio signal processing for all loudspeakers with monitoring and control of all amplifiers, cryptographically signed firmware updates, 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.

The Q-SYS Core 110c is a multipurpose software based digital audio signal processor with a total of 8 balanced analog line level audio inputs and 8 balanced analog line level audio outputs. In addition to the fixed 8x8 analog audio I/O, the Core 110c features a software definable bank of 8 balanced analog audio Input/Output Flex Channels, a unique QSC innovation, where each channel can be independently configured during design or run time as either a microphone/line level input or a line level output. It also offers class leading 24 analog I/O density plus additional specialized I/O for conferencing applications such as VoIP, POTS, Internal Media Playback/Recording HDD and USB.

The Q-SYS Cinema Core 110c is ideal for multiple room 5.1/7.1 applications, or as the sole audio system processor for Dolby Atmos installations.
