Costa Mesa, CA (May 31, 2016)–QSC will introduce its AV-to-USB Bridging solution, which includes the Q-SYS I/O-USB Bridge and two PTZ-IP conferencing cameras, at InfoComm.
The new Q-SYS PTZ-IP cameras and Q-SYS I/O-USB Bridge are intended to tackle integrating soft codec conferencing with camera feeds and audio by introducing IP-based cameras and USB bridge into the Q-SYS platform. The Q-SYS AV–to-USB Bridging solution leverages driverless USB 2.0 for webcam video emulation and AEC speakerphone audio. No additional software or drivers are required to make the solution work with modern PC operating systems and soft codec applications such as Skype for Business, ClickMeeting, Adobe Connect, GotoMeeting, WebEx and others.
The Q-SYS AV-to-USB Bridging makes using USB extender technology to integrate a PC into the installed room AV System unnecessary. The Q-SYS AV-to-USB Bridging solution allows for BYOD at the conference room table while also allowing the in-room PC at the rack to bridge without doubling (or more) the hardware solution. And since Q-SYS is a single software platform and IP-based hardware solution, there’s no need to integrate two or three different solutions from different manufacturers.
“We are delivering on the firm promise that Q-SYS is a software-based platform, and is much more than a mere standalone audio DSP product,” said TJ Adams, director of Product Management for Installed Systems. “Integrators will be able to utilize the Q-SYS world-class AEC and cameras directly within the Q-SYS Designer Software to create meeting room AV solutions that truly maximize PC-hosted soft codecs. With these introductions, QSC has positioned Q-SYS and Q-LAN to become the most integrative audio and video platform for corporate AV on the planet.”
The Q-SYS I/O-USB Bridge and Q-SYS PTZ-IP Cameras will be demonstrated in a soft-codec enabled boardroom at Booth #C10507 during InfoComm 2016.
