QSC bolsters Q-Sys with controller and I/O card

AUTHOR: Inavate

QSC has bolstered its Q-Sys platform with two products, the TSC-3 Controller and CCN32 CobraNet Audio I/O Card.

The Q-SysTSC-3 is a touch screen controller, which enables control for Q-Sys systems and other devices under Q-Sys control. The TSC-3 utilises Q-Sys Designer software to create custom control panels (called User Control Interfaces or UCIs), with buttons, faders, custom navigation and other software tools including bitmaps and other graphical images, and then deploys those control panels to this interface. These UCIs can then be utilized to control any aspect of a Q-Sys system and other elements that are put under Q-Sys control including CD and DVD players, projectors, video switchers and other devices.

Designed to be wall-mounted and fit into a standard US 2-gang wall box, the TSC-3 employs Power over Ethernet (PoE) and utilises a Capacitive Touch surface.

The Q-Sys CCN32 CobraNet Audio I/O Card enables system bridging between Q-Sys and a CobraNet legacy platform. The CCN32 fits in either a Q-Sys Core or I/O Frame and provides up to 32 x 32 channels of CobraNet audio in/out of a Q-Sys system.

Designed specifically for those customers who have a very large networked legacy system, the CCN32 provides a very cost-effective means for a phased approach to bridge between an existing CobraNet platform and the conversion to the Q-Sys platform.
