Created from the ground-up, Q-SYS is a software-based audio, video and control (AV&C) platform built around an open IT-friendly ecosystem. It uniquely leverages the power of Intel processing, the robustness and mission critical reliability of a real-time Linux operating system, and the interoperability of IEEE networking standards. This approach makes the Q-SYS Platform highly extensible and provides the ability to bring in inputs and outputs from a vast majority of analog, digital or network standards. The Q-SYS Platform offers an IT-centric platform that provides AV/IT a complete end-to-end solution. For more information, please click here.
