QSC Audio Products has announced that Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) is now available as a standard component of the Q-Sys integrated system platform.
Particularly suited for Q-Sys clients that utilize AV conferencing systems in such places as corporate boardrooms, meeting and convention spaces, hospitality installs, and government and legislative venues, the QSC AEC process is easily deployed in Q-Sys Designer software as a simple, draggable component.
Unlike other AEC offerings from other sources that must be purchased as costly add-on input cards, the Q-Sys solution is 100 percent integrated into the Q-Sys Core without any additional cost.
“Because of the powerful Q-Sys DSP processing engines, we have been able to offer Acoustic Echo Cancellation as an integrated feature to serve our customers,” says Joe Peavey, QSC product manager, software. “The tight integration between the Q-Sys processor, DSP, hardware and control software, gives Q-Sys the ability to do AEC on audio signals coming from any number of sources such as mics, remotes, I/O frames and even over IP streams.”
Current Q-Sys customers can acquire the AEC feature at no charge by upgrading to Q-Sys Designer Release 3.0 or newer.
More information on the upgrade, as well as a new Q-Sys AEC whitepaper can be found at www.qscmarketing.com/aec.
“We are excited to be able to offer AEC to our customers with Q-Sys,” adds Peavey. “And we continually have plans in the QSC pipeline to add more advanced and powerful features to Q-Sys which will benefit our customers.”

Designed for the requirements of both small and large-scale venues, the benefit of Q-Sys has been demonstrated worldwide in a variety of applications, including stadiums and arenas, theme parks, performing arts venues, transportation hubs, corporate boardrooms, convention halls, government facilities, hotels and casinos and houses of worship.
