    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.

    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.
