Costa Mesa, CA (September 10, 2020)—QSC has launched its new Q-SYS Core 8 Flex and Q-SYS Core Nano audio, video and control processors, intended to expand design options to meet a wider variety of installation spaces and topologies.
The Core 8 Flex includes onboard analog audio I/O and GPIO plus network I/O while the Q-SYS Core Nano offers network-only audio I/O processing and control.
The Q-SYS Core 8 Flex includes a 64 x 64 networked I/O channel capacity with eight onboard FLEX audio channels and eight GPIOs to integrate analog audio and control devices into the Q-SYS Ecosystem. Meanwhile, Q-SYS Core Nano offers the same 64 x 64 networked audio I/O without the onboard analog I/O to support installations with smaller spaces with centralized processing and fully networked endpoints.
Both units have a half-width, 1RU footprint and include pre-installed 8 x 8 Software-based Dante audio channels (license upgradeable up to 32 x 32 channels), driverless USB audio, and AV bridging capabilities.
As part of the Q-SYS Core processing lineup, they both offer scalable DSP processing, video routing and bridging for web conferencing, as well as third-party endpoint integration without the need for separate dedicated control processors.
“These new processors answer the call of smaller spaces that require fewer I/O as well as the increased popularity of fully networked peripherals with a solution that stays true to the foundation of our platform, delivering the rock-solid processing power and extensibility you have come to expect from QSC,” says Trent Wagner, Audio Product Manager, QSC. “The Core 8 Flex and Core Nano rightsize the onboard I/O and physical footprint without compromising on features, performance or flexibility.”
