Q-SYS Cores

The World’s Most Powerful Software Based DSP Solution for Audio, Video & Control

To provide a top performing solution, it's not enough to offer great products. It requires a comprehensive vision – a family of technologies where all components are designed to work together as a system, with seamless and simple integration of all parts into the whole. It should also be scalable for any size project, and flexible to easily accommodate changes with the progress of technology. It requires an extensible technology platform. QSC has built this solution platform: this is Q-SYS.

The Q-SYS Platform includes Core processors and peripheral devices, enabling unprecedented scalability, flexibility and power.

The central hardware component in any Q-SYS system is the Core. There are currently two Core models that are appropriate for most Cinema applications: Cinema Core 510c and Unified Core 110f.
