QSC Q-SYS software to support AES67

QSC Q-SYS Cores

QSC has announced that the Q-SYS Platform will support AES67, an interoperability standard for audio-over-IP between various networking products.

This new feature will be added to the Q-SYS Platform as part of the upcoming Q-SYS Designer v5.3 software release.  

AES67 allows audio streaming between Q-SYS and third-party products supporting different native networked audio technology such as Dante, RAVENNA and Livewire without requiring any additional hardware or license costs.

AES67 is a standard for audio-over-IP interoperability and was published by the Audio Engineering Society (AES) in 2013.

AES67 is a Layer-3 protocol suite and is designed to allow audio interoperability between any networked audio solution based on Layer-3 technology. Owing to its base on Layer-3 technology, AES67 is fully routable and scalable, like any common modern IT network.
