QSC Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop!

   Last month, QSC announced a few new product series to the popular Q-Sys Platform.  The NC Series network conference cameras and TSC Series Gen 3 network touch screen controllers are native to the Q-SYS OS, scalable, and seamlessly integrate with any Q-SYS system.

The new NC Series includes three models that empower integrators and IT administrators to rightsize camera selection for their Q-SYS installation. The Q-SYS NC-110 is the first fixed-lens, ePTZ camera available for Q-SYS, featuring a 110° horizontal field-of-view (hFOV) with digital zoom capabilities for smaller, wider rooms. The new Q-SYS NC-12×80 (12x optical zoom, 80° horizontal FOV) and Q-SYS NC-20×60 (20x optical zoom, 60° horizontal FOV) both offer motorized pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) functionality to enable a broader range of room layouts, sizes and purpose. In addition, all NC Series cameras include hardware to allow mounting above or below displays, providing greater flexibly for a wide variety of use cases.

Q-SYS TSC Series Gen 3 offer a complete redesign to deliver higher performance and modern aesthetics, enabling intuitive AV&C controls for any space. Available in three sizes, the TSC-50-G3 (5-inch), TSC-70-G3 (7-inch) and TSC-101-G3 (10.1-inch) feature increased resolution with significantly improved screen transitions, integrated ambient light sensors for brightness, and a sleek new design. In addition, the 7-inch and 10-inch offer customizable RGB LED status to indicate call/mute status, room-in-use, etc. as well as proximity sensors that waken the screens on approach.

Like all Q-SYS touch screen controllers, integrators can deploy fully customizable user control interfaces (UCIs) with a unique drag-and-drop UCI Editor within Q-SYS Designer Software, the singular software used to build UCIs, DSP and control programming. Designers can further standardize and expedite the design deployment of UCIs with the optional use of cascading style sheets (CSS) and the newly released UCI Controller.

All of these products will start shipping in 2022, but have been added to the latest price list.  This price list includes variable price increases to the entire portfolio.  To ensure you have the latest QSC pricing, contact your Farm rep today!

Years ago in this forum I was pretty vehement about the conference room table.   It seemed to me that…

Do you use the phrase ”hang a U-ee”?

Last month, 71.4% of our voters believe Zoom beat out Verzuz for the winner of the Pandemic…”You’re on mute”!
