The Next-Generation of Audio, Video & Control 

QSC partnered with Dell to introduce an industry-first solution that combines the processing capabilities of the Q-SYS realtime operating system with the standard Dell R740 server.

The result is the Q-SYS Core 5200 Enterprise Processor, the only IT-grade solution available on the market that brings audio, video & control (AV&C) processing into the datacenter.

What is the
Q-SYS Ecosystem?

Created from the ground-up, Q-SYS is a software-based platform built around an open IT-friendly ecosystem. It uniquely leverages the power of Intel processing, the robustness and mission critical reliability of a Linux operating system, and the interoperability of IEEE networking standards. This IT-centric layered approach allows QSC to easily migrate the Q-SYS Ecosystem to other Intel platforms as they introduce new, faster chipsets, and to other off-the-shelf hardware. Furthermore, its usage of IT standard protocols makes the Q-SYS Ecosystem highly extensible for future IT functions and ensures a secure AV environment within your existing infrastructure.
