QSC Announces Next-Generation Q-SYS Enterprise Core Processors

QSC has added new products to the Q-SYS Enterprise Core category. Running exclusively on Dell server hardware, these industry-first solutions combine the processing capabilities of the Q-SYS realtime operating system with the Dell R730XL hardware platform. The result is the only IT-grade solution available on the market that brings audio, video and control (AV&C) processing into the datacenter.

These new Q-SYS Enterprise Core processors represent the first fully integrated AV&C solution demonstrating the future of the industry and its shift towards standards-based IT platforms. The use of standard, mainstream hardware reflects a typical enterprise IT environment and provides several benefits, particularly for corporate clients and global enterprises, including:

  • Centralized Shared Resource: Enterprises can take advantage of the corporate infrastructure and place Q-SYS Core processors alongside other building-wide IT services such as VoIP, UC&C, as well as security and access control servers. Both the Q-SYS Core 2200 and Core 5200 processors provide up to 512×512 network audio channels while offering an abundance of raw processing power. The Q-SYS Core 2200 offers 128 built-in, fully routable acoustic echo cancelation (AEC) processors while the Q-SYS Core 5200 offers 256 AEC processors.
  • Flexibility: Provides the ability to serve all meeting, conferencing, presentation and lobby spaces from a single platform designed from the outset to provide full AV&C requirements for AV/IT environments.
  • Simplicity and Familiarity: Utilizes common hardware familiar to IT managers worldwide with integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) for simple integration with existing IT asset management and monitoring tools.
  • Reliability: World-renowned robust engineering found in the Dell R730XL server platform provides IT users with peace of mind that its AV&C solution is built on industry-leading hardware, designed to last, with standard features such as dual redundant networking and hot swappable power supplies and fans.
