d&b audiotechnik has announced a software plug-in for the QSC Q-Sys platform, enabling comprehensive control and monitoring of d&b amplifiers and loudspeakers from any Q-Sys Core.

The control interoperability enabled by this dedicated software module admits d&b amplifiers to the Q-Sys DSP network system, enabling integrators to 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. Reciprocally, the UCI can read extensive status information from the d&b loudspeaker system. The implementation allows system designers to achieve high performance d&b quality in installation applications requiring detailed, custom 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 custom installation structures – especially in venues such as stadia and houses of worship,’ says d&b Installation Product Manager Wolfgang Schulz. ‘The result is 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’ adds QSC Senior Director of Product Development, David Fuller. ‘Having Q-Sys integrate seamlessly with d&b’s class-leading concert system is truly an integrator’s dream’.

The 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.
