    QSC debuts new AcousticDesign™ Series Ceiling mount loudspeakers

    Amsterdam, Netherlands (February 9, 2016) - QSC introduces the four new ceiling mount loudspeakers to the award-winning AcousticDesign™ Series at ISE 2016. The innovative design of the QSC AcousticDesign™ Series ceiling loudspeakers (AD-C) has the most consistent off-axis ceiling speaker available today. Using a QSC design philosophy called Directivity Matched Transition (DMT™), these loudspeakers deliver pristine audio reproduction for installations requiring a refined audio experience. QSC Product Manager for Installed Loudspeakers Travis Nie says that “the real benefit for the integrator comes when you use the new AD-C loudspeakers in the same installation as the existing AcousticDesign Surface Mount loudspeakers (AD-S).”  There is remarkable consistency in the sonic signatures of the surface mount and ceiling mount version, as governing design philosophies are…

    Traditional AV Designs and Networked AV Designs

    ”AV/IT Convergence” is a popular phrase right now. There is no question that it’s happening, but it’s important to know where we are in the process. Sometimes it feels as though IT folks view those of us in the AV industry as the newly born, already annoying baby brother. We were excited to be born into the IT world, but we are still struggling to learn how to speak, get around, communicate, and play in this space. Here’s how you, together with QSC, can adapt and grow… There are two schools of thought in the AV world right now: traditional and network-based AV systems.

    It’s More Than the Network

    Let’s be honest, there are a million ways one could describe AV and IT integration.  It’s true that in this day and age, we can now control just about every device via the network, make our phone calls via the network, and route our audio and video using the network (and only a few projects thus far truly accomplish all three).  So what does “AV/IT convergence really mean?  Most answers will land around IT infrastructure simply meaning “the network”.

The term IT infrastructure is defined in a standard called Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) v3 which is a combined set of hardware, software, networks, facilities, systems, etc. (including all of the information technology), in order to develop, test, deliver,…
