    Q-SYS AV&C Ecosystem Hits the Jackpot at Thunder Valley Casino

    Located just outside of Sacramento, California, Thunder Valley Casino Resort offers 250,000 ft² of gaming space, 14 restaurants and bars, a luxury 17-story hotel, an expansive outdoor pool and bar, and a 5,500 seat outdoor amphitheater. The casino’s previous AV system consisted of disparate components that proved cumbersome and costly to support. To help solve this problem, the casino took a holistic approach to their needs and enlisted the Q-SYS Audio, Video and Control Ecosystem by QSC. Redundant Q-SYS Enterprise Core 5200 processors handle the AV&C throughout the venue. These Cores allowed the Casino to centralize all of their AV&C data processing in one location, while distributing network-based endpoints where needed. “Reducing the number of boxes on the network was critical for this upgrade,” explained Darren Scott, Audio Video Manager at Thunder Valley Casino…

    Vancouver Island’s Largest Performance Theatre selects Q-SYS for Network Audio and Control

    Opened in 1913, the historic Royal Theatre is Vancouver Island’s largest theatre.  The 1,416 seat venue plays host to a diverse range of productions, including Broadway musicals, contemporary dance, rock shows, classical music, lecturers and more. With plans to upgrade the AV system, the theatre selected the Q-SYS Ecosystem to provide network audio and control throughout. Warren Busby, Head of Audio at the Royal Theatre, chose Q-SYS after a successful install at the nearby McPherson Playhouse.  “We used McPherson as our proof of concept for the larger, more prestigious Royal Theatre. Q-SYS made it easy to scale the original design to meet the needs of the theater without completely starting from scratch.” Redundant Q-SYS Integrated Core processors handle background music, paging and software-based control throughout the theatre, which includes two lobby spaces, a…

    QSC Delivers Wide-Area Audio Distribution to Santiago International Airport

    With over 20 million passengers flying through each year, the Santiago International Airport in Chile is one of the busiest airports in Latin America.  With a major renovation and expansion in the works, the AV team chose QSC and the Q-SYS Ecosystem of processors, loudspeakers and amplifiers to deliver wide-area audio and paging distribution throughout the facility.

    Opus Night Club in Banglore Equipped with QSC

    QSC recently completed one of its first WideLine 10 Series line array permanent installs in India, along with the Q-SYS™ Platform, at a new Opus club in Banglore. Opus is one of the largest spaces in this segment with a mezzanine floor and an outdoor brunch area, which is part of the club. Opus was very specific with their requirements and had a clear vision.  They needed a system that could accommodate both live performances and DJ events, which meant the solution needed to provide additional headroom and flexibility for any visiting mix engineer to easily adjust the system, but with enough controls to protect the system. To handle the complex DSP processing requirements, SD Audio selected the Q-SYS Platform. Not only did it provide the flexibility to select and change DSP requirements almost instantly, it allowed them to easily route audio over a standard gigabit…

    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…

    Central Command: Concert Hall Takes Control

    In the last decade {Perth Concert Hall in Scotland} hosted a diverse programme of concerts, performances, contemporary art, political conferences and corporate events. In that time the (very busy) tech team has naturally had to adapt to changing client demands and changing technologies. As a result, the venue was home to a variety of different AV systems, many of which didn’t talk to each other. The client brief was to bring everything (legacy equipment and new kit) together. “We had seven different audio systems in the building, and numerous different lighting controls. Just turning on sound and video in one room was a major mission, now it’s all achievable on an iPad.” says Patrick Dalgety, production and technical manager, Perth Concert Hall. And this is where integrator Autograph Sales & Installations enters the story. At the heart of the new install was the…
