At InfoComm 2016 d&b audiotechnik will introduce its software plug-in for the Q-SYS platform from QSC, enabling the comprehensive control and monitoring of d&b amplifiers and loudspeakers from any Q-SYS Core.

The detailed control interoperability enabled by this dedicated software module, means d&b amplifiers can now be integrated easily as part of a Q-SYS DSP network system. Integrators can provide power on/off, mute, gain, preset recall and other amplifier controls from any Q-SYS user control interface (UCI) hosted on any number of control devices and – vice versa – can read extensive status information from the d&b loudspeaker system.

This allows system designers to achieve d&b quality in installation applications requiring detailed, customized remote control features. Extensive integration with Q-SYS also allows the status logging of all audio connections to amplifiers, and the operating state of connected loudspeakers to be surveyed.

“With this new control module, d&b loudspeaker systems can now be combined with QSC’s Q-SYS platform for system designs requiring the integration of high performance audio within customized installation structures – especially in venues such as stadia and houses of worship,” says d&b Installation Product manager Wolfgang Schulz. “The result is a perfect solution: concert quality sound, user friendly handling, and integration functionalities, such as unattended operation, system event logging, public address and voice alarm.”

“This collaboration effort between d&b and QSC came about from market opportunities, where both d&b and Q-SYS were repeatedly being specified together into high profile installations” added David Fuller the Sr. director of Product Development at QSC. “Having Q-SYS integrate seamlessly with d&b’s class-leading concert system is truly an integrator’s dream.”

The new d&b plug-in for Q-SYS is already in use in various performing arts venues, cruise ships and conference facilities. It is free to download and available now on the d&b and QSC websites.

More information is available in the d&b demo room N117 at InfoComm 2016 in Las Vegas.
