QSC SysNav™ is an application intended to be used with L Class compatible products. It allows the user to easily design, configure, control, monitor and apply signal processing to individual L Class loudspeakers or full arrays.
The SysNav App also allows you to directly update all L Class loudspeakers’ firmware using a network connection to the L Class loudspeakers and a Wi-Fi router. For detailed information, please consult the online SysNav Help.
While the preferred method for updating your L Class products is to use the SysNav App, there are certain cases where the L Class Firmware Updater App (Windows only) should be used.
Future releases of SysNav will provide enhanced features and new functionalities:
- AIM (Array Installation Modeling) prediction tool with Auto-Splay function, and additional advanced features
- EQ controls, offline editing, save/recall settings, groups and zones functionalities
- Support for LS118 active subwoofer
- Support for macOS
- and more…
QSC SysNav™ (System Navigator)
QSC SysNav™ (System Navigator) software version 1.2 offers a number of additional functionalities as well as bug fixes.
LA108 active line array loudspeaker 8-inch 2-way - firmware version 1.1.0068
LA112 active line array loudspeaker 12-inch 2-way - firmware version 1.1.0068
Firmware Update Caution
Please be aware that the L Class loudspeaker settings will be reset back to factory default during the firmware update process to version 1.1.0068.
Prior to installing SysNav version 1.2.0048 and performing loudspeaker firmware updates (1.1.0068), it is highly recommended to create a backup of all crucial settings that have been previously applied to the array and/or loudspeakers. To learn more about such procedure, please consult the following article - Firmware update impact to user data - in our Knowledge Base.
- AIM Auto Splay available for flown array deployments
- AIM SPL graph enlargement
- Network settings editing functionalities
- Display of array top angle tilt
- Display of Dante MAC settings
- Added notification on multicast failure
- Factory Reset and Diagnostic Test controls available
- Shading on/off now affects audio when off
- Ar-Q changes are reflected in SysNav also
- LED/LCD Controls update in SysNav also
- Improved scrolling on Windows computers
- Standing/Seated preferences are reflected in AIM
- Improvements to AIM displays and controls
- In Demonstration Mode there are several features / controls that are not working properly.
- Array optimization and modified parameters in the array do not propagate to individual loudspeakers.
- Changing some controls has no effect.
- The array name cannot be edited.
- Network disruptions during firmware updates could cause a unit to not update properly.
- Refer to Loudspeaker Firmware Update Best Practices for instructions on how to ensure a successful update.
- AIM Auto Splay
- Auto Splay is currently not available for deployments other than Flying. A future version will support Auto Splay for all deployments.
- As the height of a surface that is fully behind the array increases (this is often the “Stage” area), Auto Splay will erroneously take that height into account and recommend an angle that tilts the array upward more than it should. A future version will address the issue.
- Workaround: For the purpose of an accurate Auto Splay calculation, either remove the area from the venue, or change its height to zero.
- Changing too quickly controls that are passed through an array via IR (infra-red communication) can cause the array to become un-optimized including parameters like Gain, Delay, Sensitivity, HPF, and controls relating to Array Shading such as Compare.
- Workaround: Wait a couple of seconds between changes to allow time for the firmware to send the commands to every loudspeaker in the array.
- Dante subscription status can sometimes continue to stay red as if there was a lost connection even though the connection has been revived.
- Workaround: Restart SysNav
- In Utility menu, changing re-calibration to "User Calibration" causes the loudspeaker array to go into "Un-optimized Array Configuration".
- Workaround: Change the recalibration setting to “Factory Calibrated” for the error message to disappear.
