Amsterdam, Holland (February 10, 2017)—At ISE, QSC is debuting its new Q-SYS Core 510i Integrated Core processor. The processor uses the latest Intel platform and a QSC-developed Linux realtime operating system (RTOS), a card-based I/O and native Q-LAN network channel and AES67 capabilities.
The Core 510i can be deployed in two different software configurable modes. Q-SYS Core mode handles all AVC processing, including resources for built-in acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) that can be deployed with the new Q-SYS AV-to-USB Bridging solution for soft codec conferencing applications.
The other mode—I/O Frame mode—provides support for up to 128x128 audio channels as an I/O peripheral into the Q-SYS system for processing on a separate Q-SYS Core processor. It can accommodate any combination of Q-SYS Type-II I/O cards including Dante, CobraNet, AVB or Q-SYS analog and AES/EBU cards.
With the recent release of Q-SYS Designer Software v5.3, all Q-SYS Core processors shipped to date, including the Core 510i processor, offer native AES67 capability without the need for any additional hardware or license costs.
Like other Q-SYS solutions, the Core 510i processor offers multiple levels of system redundancy, allowing the designer to choose the most appropriate redundancy scheme for the project at hand.
