    • All Q-SYS Cores past, present and future are compatible with the Q-SYS AV-to-USB Bridging Solution.

What POE class rating are the cameras?

    • 802.3af

Will the AV-to-USB bridging solution run on my existing Q-SYS certified network switch?

    • Q-LAN audio and video technology is based on standard IT protocols so it is designed to work on standard IT networking hardware. The Q-LAN Networking Requirements document will be updated to include any specific functions unique to the Q-LAN video content. All future Q-LAN switch certification will include tests for
      Q-LAN audio and video.

Does the AV-to-USB Bridging Solution receive an IP stream from the camera?

    • Yes, both AV-to-USB Bridging peripherals, including the I/O-USB Bridge and the Core110f, receive the PTZ-IP Camera’s stream and deliver video alongside Q-SYS audio directly to a computer.

Can I use a standard USB hub to connect multiple PCs to one bridge?

    • No, only one computer can be connected to a bridging endpoint (I/O USB Bridge, Core 110f). However, what makes QSC's AV-to-USB Bridging solution unique is the ability to connect a PTZ-IP camera to multiple bridging endpoints, or multiple cameras to a single bridging endpoint.

How do I set the USB video resolution?

  • The USB video resolution is configured in Q-SYS Designer Software.

Will QSC include the external 12V PSU’s with the product?

  • No, the external PSU is not included with the Q-SYS I/O-USB Bridge but QSC offers an external 12v PSU to be purchased as an accessory item if necessary.

Can I use the USB type A ports to charge my devices? (Tablet/phone)

  • Yes, the USB type A connectors on the I/O-USB Bridge can be used to charge devices capable of receiving power from USB.

Can I use the USB type A ports to plug in a USB thumb drive to record / playback audio files?

  • No.

Can I use a USB extender to extend the USB port?

  • The Q-SYS AV-to-USB Bridging Solution is specifically designed to use the network as the method to extend data over long distances as it is much better suited to this than USB. If you need to provide USB connectivity to the AV system from a remote location, you should place an I/O-USB Bridge at the remote PC location.

Can I connect a Display to the HDMI port on the I/O USB Bridge?

  • No. Not at this time.

Can the I/O-USB Bridge provide two different video outputs (one via the USB B and a different for the HDMI)?

  • No. The HDMI port is not currently active at this time.

Can I use the Core110f USB B port for AV-to-USB Bridging?

  • Yes, the Core110f USB B port can be used for AV-to-USB Bridging, it will need to be configured inside Q-SYS Designer for this functionality, and a USB 2.0 cable will need to be used.

Can I use the TSC-7t for AV-to-USB Bridging?

  • No, the TSC-7t is only capable for audio bridging.

Does the Q-SYS AV-to-USB bridging solution provide lipsync capability?

  • Not at this time.

How do I set the HDMI/3G-SDI resolution?
