Core 3100

Q-SYS Enterprise Core

  • Core 3100 - Rear
The Core 3100 represents the second generation of Q-SYS Enterprise Cores and truly leverages the faster development cycle of the Intel platform, with more than double the processing power of the model it supersedes at virtually no extra cost. The new Core 3100 provides up to 512 × 512 low-latency network audio network channels and 144× AEC processing channels, using a pair of the latest generation XEON 8-core processors coupled to server-grade cooling towers. Additional features include super-sized, low-speed fans for maximum front-to-rear airflow with minimal fan noise, and a premium field-serviceable power-supply.
