QSC Releases Software-Based Dante for the Q-SYS Ecosystem

Costa Mesa, Calif (May 5, 2020) – QSC is excited to announce the availability of Software-based Dante® for the Q-SYS Ecosystem. As part of its strategic partnership with Audinate, these feature licenses allow integrators to enable Dante networked audio integration on Q-SYS Core 110f processors running Q-SYS Designer Software v8.3 or higher. This software implementation eliminates the need for additional hardware I/O to integrate Dante into the Q-SYS audio, video & control workflow and greatly increases platform interoperability between Q-SYS and Dante-enabled devices.

“We were thrilled to work with Audinate to deliver the industry’s first
software-based Dante implementation on a DSP processor,” says Trent Wagner,
Audio Product Manager, QSC. “This launch delivers on our steadfast commitment
to software innovation within the Q-SYS Ecosystem. Software-based Dante expands
the capabilities of the Q-SYS Core 110f processor, and allows integration of
Dante devices into those smaller Q-SYS systems that might have been cost
prohibitive with our larger Core processors.”

“The goal of offering Dante-as-Software is to bring new, flexible ways
for Dante to be deployed,” says Joshua Rush, SVP, Marketing & Products at
Audinate. “QSC is a natural partner in this space as they are an industry
leader in software-based strategy. The introduction of Software-based Dante in
the Q-SYS Core 110f will allow the AV industry to more effectively utilize
software-based solutions operating on standard computing platforms.”

Q-SYS Core 110f
processors sold after March 30, 2020 will include 8×8 Dante network audio
channel license (while Core 110f processors sold prior to that date can
purchase the 8×8 channel license). Furthermore, all Core 110f processors are
capable of licensing higher Dante channel counts options (16×16 or 32×32). Software-Based
Dante for the Q-SYS Ecosystem will be available on the remaining current models
of Q-SYS processors (Core 510i and Core 5200) later in 2020.
