Q-SYS Designer Software is the most powerful yet simple advanced DSP software on the market today. This software enables the user to create designs for the Q-SYS Integrated System Platform. The system design environment was created specifically to be intuitive and easy to use. It is laid out without clutter or complicated multi-level menus. As a result, the software allows system integrators to focus their energy on building the audio system, rather than laboring over a complex software learning curve.
• One Software for all System Sizes: Q-SYS Designer Software can be used with ALL Q-SYS Cores and peripherals.
• Emulation Mode: Build the majority of your system without hardware.
• Third-party peripheral support: Q-SYS allows for control of external devices through available LUA scripting.
• User Control Interfaces: Design custom buttons, import graphics, and build user controls for touchscreen controllers.
Note: Before upgrading, be sure to create backup copies of your Q-SYS design files for the current version and older versions. Also, make backup files for all media you have on the Core. To avoid overwriting your backup copies, be sure you do not open the backup copies with the newly installed version of Q-SYS Designer.

- [PTZ IP CAMERAS]: When in Privacy mode, the Q-SYS PTZ IP Conference Room Cameras now output ‘black’ video streams.
- [PTP CLOCKING]: Added ‘PTPv2 Disable LAN B’ function to the Design Properties to aid with situations involving multiple AES67 devices attempting to PTP sync via converged IT networks using the Q-SYS Cores as PTP boundary clocks.
- [AUDIO]: Added IIR Custom Filter which is a multi-section biquad filter that takes its coefficients from a CSV file.
- [DSP]: Added new cross point taper property for the Matrix Mixer component
- [QSD]: Improved Hard Links so that they work when passing through a Proxy Server
- [LUA]: Fixed an issue where runtime changes to a Scriptable Control could be lost under some circumstances.

- [I/O-8 FLEX]: Fixed an issue where the I/O Monitor may not correctly monitor the Flex Output channels
- [I/O-8 FLEX]: Fixed an issue where the Flex Input and Output select buttons would not toggle correctly when in Emulate mode.
- [I/O-8 FLEX]: Fixed an issue where the A/D and D/A latency may change between design deployments.
- [DPA-Q]: Fixed an issue where the wrong firmware could be loaded in to the cinema networked amplifiers.
- [I/O-510i]: Fixed an issue where the CCN32 was incorrectly limited to a maximum of 16x16 channels when installed in an I/O-510i.
- [POTS]: A number of improvements to assist customers interfacing the Core 110f POTS interface with an ATA.
5.4.128 Change Log
- CORE 110f: When utilizing the Video Bridging capability on the Core 110f USB Device port, networked audio channel count will be limited to 64 x 64 Q-LAN / AES67.
- IP CAMERAS: Camera firmware updates are now a manual process. All Q-SYS IP Cameras requiring a firmware update will be shown as Compromised in the Inventory. Users will need to update the camera firmware using the Q-SYS Administrator.
- IP CAMERAS: New firmware that includes several stability improvements. Please remember to manually update the firmware and do not remove power or network connection to the camera during the update process.
- IP CAMERAS: Add ability to include more camera controls in Snapshot Banks.
- IP CAMERAS: Implemented Constant BitRate mode for IP Stream 2 (H.264).
- AV BRIDGING: Added ‘Streaming Test’ button on Camera Status page to verify ability of bridging device to receive video streams from cameras.
- SAMPLE DESIGNS: Improved Sample Design files to include more appropriate default settings.
- POTS: Dialed digits are now visible in the dial string window when dialing a 2nd party during 3-way calling situations.
- POTS: Increased POTS ringing signal cadence off time when country is set to ‘Singapore’ to better support the NEC Univerge SV8500 PBX
- TIMECODE: Added 24 FPS Pull-Down support to LTC Generator and Reader
- FIX: Corrected USB Input level meter type.
- FIX: Resolved issues on the Delay and Pitch Shifter effects processors.
- FIX: Resolved issue where Camera Streaming LED would remain illuminated once streaming had stopped.
- FIX: Resolved audio dropouts related to camera switching events.
- FIX: Resolved issue that could cause multiple incorrect ‘RTP IP Stream Not Available’ messages appearing in the Eventlog.
- FIX: Resolved issue where IP Cameras may not be released by existing designs when their name, but not IP address is changed.
- FIX: Resolved issue where camera frame rate could drop under certain PTZ movement conditions.
