QSC awarded patent for simplifying web conferencing integration
QSC has announced that it has been awarded a utility patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office for its unique Q-Sys Web Conference Integration Solution. This patent (USA 9,973,638) recognises the solution’s ability to bring an IP camera stream from Q-Sys PTZ-IP conference cameras into soft codec applications (like Zoom, Skype for Business, GoToMeeting, etc.) via a driverless USB connection.
The patent also recognises the ability of the Q-Sys platform to discover and control Q-Sys IP conference cameras on a standard Ethernet network. This allows users to leverage their network to transmit video from Q-Sys conference cameras to at any PC.
Ryan Pring, senior technical director of Q-Sys, said: “This patent is a testament of our commitment to increase overall simplicity and advance the state-of-the-art Q-Sys platform. Unlike most solutions on the market, the Q-Sys Web Conference Integration Solution provides an IT-centric approach by combining the universal ease of USB connectivity with the flexibility of the network for long haul transfers of audio, video and control data. This design eliminates the need for expensive USB and HDMI extenders and point-to-point wiring, which translates into a more simplified, cost-effective design.”
