QSC adds native video distribution to Q-SYS
QSC has announced the Q-SYS NV Series (NV-32-H) network video endpoint for the Q-SYS Ecosystem.
The native, multi-stream, software-defined HDMI encoder/decoder enables network-based video distribution, optimised specifically for meeting rooms. It features the new QSC Shift video compression codec which provides low latency video streaming with resolutions up to 4K60 4:4:4 over a standard gigabit network. To achieve this, it dynamically adjusts network bandwidth consumption based on video content. This is designed to provide flexible and network efficient compression and distribution of common meeting room video content without sacrificing the ability to stream full motion video.
The NV Series is a single SKU system and therefore is software-defined as either an HDMI video encoder or decoder, and allows for several unique I/O configurations. Because it offers flexibility multiple room design and deployment options - including simultaneous stream encoding/decoding for multiscreen room designs – are available.
In addition to video distribution, NV Series also provides integration of soft codec audio and Q-SYS conference camera sources via USB for web conferencing applications such as Zoom, Google Hangouts Meet and Cisco WebEx, without the need for additional control processors, hubs, bridges or complicated, time-consuming programming.
Integrators can also route network audio between NV Series video endpoints and any other Q-SYS peripherals using the company’s Q-LAN network technology. They can also use Q-SYS technologies such as software-based processing and drag-and-drop GUI creation and deployment to control the NV Series.
