    Holy Faith Catholic Church Deploys Q-SYS Ecosystem for Audio, Video & Control

    Holy Faith Catholic Church is a large house of worship in Gainesville, Florida, that serves more than 2,100 families. Looking to enhance the AV system in their Parish Life Center, they turned to QSC and the Q-SYS™ Ecosystem for network audio and control. Holy Faith worked with integrator Visionary Systems AV on the project, a 15,000 ft² facility comprised of three meeting spaces, combinable into a single room used for larger events and an outdoor terrace. The system was designed around a Q-SYS Core 110f Unified processor, which handles the audio routing, including the existing 70 V ceiling loudspeaker setup.  The room also includes a pair of QSC AP-5112 surface-mount loudspeakers, which provide sound reinforcement for events that sometimes include musical performances. QSC CXD8.8Q network amplifiers power the loudspeakers throughout the space. These amplifiers offer…

    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. A redundant pair of Q-SYS Core 510i Integrated Core handles the AV&C processing throughout the airport. Should the primary Core enter a fault state, the secondary Core assumes full audio streaming and control communication with connected Q-SYS peripherals and third-party devices.  This prevents any unwanted interruptions to audio, video or control that are critical to day-to-day operations. Q-SYS features a software-based, multi-zone paging platform that enables native Q-SYS network page stations…

    Yokohama Stadium Hits a Home Run with the Q-SYS Audio, Video and Control Ecosystem

    Having first opened its gates in 1978, Yokohama Stadium in Japan is currently home field for the DeNA BayStars baseball team.  It also plays host to concerts for popular artists from around the world, and will be one of the primary baseball venues for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. When the time came to overhaul the stadium’s AV system, Yokohama Stadium chose the Q-SYS Ecosystem from QSC to handle networked audio and control processing throughout. Yokohama Stadium chose the Q-SYS Ecosystem because of its open, IT-friendly architecture and its third-party integration capabilities.  The audio processing/distribution and software-based control is handled by a redundant pair of Q-SYS Core 510i Integrated processors.  Third-party Dante™-enabled audio mixers and amplifiers were also deployed throughout the stadium and integrated with Q-SYS using the Q-SYS CDN64 I/O card. …

    Chalk is a premier, luxury sports bar that combines a taste-provoking food and drink menu with an AV experience that puts their guests “at the game”.

    QSC Expands AcousticDesign Series with New Column Surface-Mount Loudspeakers

    Costa Mesa, Calif. (June 12, 2019) – [De, Es, Fr] – QSC introduces an exciting line extension of the AcousticDesign™ Series column surface-mount loudspeaker with the new AD-S402T.

    QSC Introduces Software-based Dante for the Q-SYS Ecosystem

    Costa Mesa, Calif. and Portland, Ore. (June 5, 2019) – [De, Es, Fr] – QSC today announces Software-based Dante® for the Q-SYS™ Ecosystem.

They can also take full advantage of robust functionality—such as device discovery, synchronization, control and management for Dante—directly within Q-SYS Designer Software environment (or within an external instance of Dante Controller if desired). Because Q-SYS operates over standard IT network infrastructure, Dante audio data works seamlessly with Q-SYS AV&C data, eliminating the need for…
