QSC Systems Releases Q-Sys Designer v8.3.1

  The Q-SYS Ecosystem now provides software-based DanteTM network audio integration without the need for additional hardware.

  The capabilities of software-based Dante are similar to the CDN64 Dante Audio Bridge Card, except that the sample rate is fixed at 48 kHz.In the 8.3.0 release, software-based Dante is supported by the Q-SYS Core 110f processor. You can download the new software here

Streamlined PTZ Control

   With the fast-growing selection of robotic PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) cameras available, you don’t need to be a high-end broadcast studio to bring this powerful and convenient technology into your video production and live streaming setups. 

PTZ cameras offer studio-grade picture quality and can be installed in discrete locations thanks to their small size and remote-control operation.

YOUR Demo Room

  Without droning on about challenging times, etc, The Farm has come to the realization that a virtual demo isn’t just necessary NOW, but is actually a huge benefit for any circumstance. Think about it. Want to hear what a Shure MXA910 sounds like on the far end of a call or what happens when the lobes aren’t properly placed?

Want to see what QSC camera control looks like in a Zoom call?  Maybe you would like to watch a Barco ClickShare Conferencing button plug in mid-call and switch to the in-room AV system.  Any of these things takes about 2 minutes to see/hear. 

  Right now, The Farm has 3 operational virtual demo rooms, with a 4th coming this week.   We have gear up and running for you and your customer.   And we are constantly adding to the functional demo.  Plan on seeing Roland streaming switchers and custom Leon sound bars in the next few weeks.  Get a live demo of Audinate DDM as well.  We are making this anything and everything we can for you and your teams. 

  If we haven’t already, we will be reaching out to you about a live demo of Farm gear.  If there is something specific that you want to see, let us know.  If there is a way we can improve these demos, let us know that as well.

YOUR Event Calendar

  Want to pick and choose the webinars and presentations you participate in? We understand.  We are trying to minimize the number of emails we send telling you about the next one you “just need to attend!” That’s why we have created an event calendar at
