QSC has announced expanded control capabilities for its Q-SYS platform.
Designed for the IT and AV professional, the Q-SYS integrated audio, video and control platform offers a reimagined software-focused control paradigm including full-featured contemporary programming tools, native touch screen controllers, drag-and-drop visual programming capabilities and flexible and scalable management.
“The Q-SYS Control expansion is a testament to development principles of the Q-SYS Platform, which is keeping a firm technology alignment with the IT industry and focus on software-based functionality advances,” says Markus Winkler, senior vice president, QSC Systems.
“We have used software within Q-SYS to introduce AEC processing, conference room video camera switching, and the industry’s first real-time AV&C software deployment on commercial off-the-shelf IT hardware. Software-based control is the ideal next step in offering the most flexible and scalable IT/AV platform on the market.”
Addressing the fundamental need for IT/AV system administrators to easily monitor and manage their AV systems, Q-SYS Reflect is a new management platform for the Q-SYS eco-system, which will launch with two different versions.
“We recognise that our customers want to avoid bloated management systems that require extraneous setup and deployment complexities, and will not settle for rough bolt-on AV modifications to existing building asset managers,” says Martin Barbour, product manager for installed systems, QSC. “Q-SYS Reflect will address those needs by providing streamlined setup and configuration with security and manageability at the forefront of the user experience.”
Visitors can get a full, hands-on demo of the Q-SYS Control capabilities at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam at the QSC stand 7-E200. For more information on QSC at ISE, visit www.qsc.com/ise2018.
