It’s Official: QSC Ships Q-SYS NV, Entering the AV-Over-IP 1G Market and Competing Head-On with Crestron

QSC says the Q-SYS NV Series (NV-32-H) 1G-based AV-over-IP system (AES-128 encryption) is shipping. As a native peripheral to the Q-SYS Ecosystem, NV Series allows integrators to add HDMI video distribution to an existing Q-SYS system without any control programming. The NV Series video endpoint is software-definable as either a video encoder or decoder.

The NV Series features something they are calling Q-SYS Shift technology, a network video compression scheme that they claim adjusts network bandwidth consumption based on video content.

NV Series also enables several emerging room design scenarios, including the ability to simultaneously stream 1080p60 for dual-monitor rooms from a single NV Series endpoint, for collaboration or soft codecs that support dual-video outputs. It also features integration of soft codec audio and Q-SYS conference cameras via USB for web conferencing applications such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts Meet, Cisco WebEx and more.

All native Q-SYS peripherals, including the NV Series video endpoints and third-party connected devices, can be remotely managed and monitored by Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager providing unmatched visibility and control of Q-SYS systems across an enterprise.

Here are all the specs.
