Q-SYS software-based Platform drives elevated experiences for hybrid meeting spaces

Costa Mesa, Calif. (January 31, 2023) – Q-SYS is pleased to support spatial audio
capabilities for Microsoft Teams Rooms, including Signature Teams Rooms.

For systems utilizing certified Q-SYS audio, video and control processing in Teams Rooms
environments, users can now experience spatial audio allowing the audio of the remote
participants to come from the direction of where the specific person talking is located on the
screen, creating a more immersive and natural experience for in-room participants.
Furthermore, the spatial audio feature with Teams Rooms can be supported at the software
level via Q-SYS Designer Software, eliminating the need for additional hardware.

“Spatial audio support is yet another example of our growing partnership between Q-SYS and
Microsoft to deliver features and solutions that elevate equitable collaboration experiences in
high-impact spaces, including Signature Teams Rooms,” says Jason Moss, Vice President
Corporate Development and Alliances, Q-SYS. “Because of the software architecture of Q-
SYS, we can quickly adapt the Platform to offer this new feature. Furthermore, with a large
portfolio of certified Teams Rooms space configurations on the market, users can design with
confidence, as an expression of the benefit the certification work Q-SYS does for them.”

“We are pleased to continue innovating with Q-SYS to offer optimized solutions, like spatial
audio, that enhance collaboration within Teams Rooms environments,” says Albert Kooiman,
Senior Director of Microsoft Teams Devices Partner Engineering and Certification at Microsoft.
“We are always looking for solutions to bridge the gap between people working remotely and
those in the office, and with spatial audio, users can enjoy a richer meeting experience that
can help reduce meeting fatigue.”
