Q-SYS Q-SYS Integrated Core Processor - CORE 510i Kit

QSC SKU: CORE 510i Kit
No reviews


Spec Sheet

When deployed in “I/O Frame mode”, the Q-SYS Core 510i processor offers the ability to integrate up to 128 x 128 audio channels in to the Q-SYS system for processing on a separate Q-SYS Core. It can accommodate any combination of Q-SYS Type-II I/O cards. This is particularly useful when integrating large numbers of networked audio channels from Dante™, CobraNet™ or AVB™ devices and subsystems in to the Q-SYS Ecosystem.

  • 256 x 256 networked audio channels (Q-LAN / AES67)
  • Configurable onboard I/O via 8 open Q-SYS IO Cards slots
  • 64 x AEC processors
  • Supports up to 14x Q-SYS NM-T1 network microphones
  • up to 128 x 128 Dante audio channels (8 x 8 included)
  • Full-featured Q-SYS Control engine (with optional feature license)
  • 16 x 16 GPIO

Q-SYS Operating System: Audio, video and control processing on a dedicated Linux™ realtime OS, built using standard computer hardware and IT industry networking protocols.

Diverse I/O Options: Q-SYS Core processing in a flexible chassis featuring 8 onboard I/O card slots that can be populated with any combination of Q-SYS I/O cards , including bridge networks like Dante™, CobraNet™ or AVB™, for maximum flexibility.

Q-SYS Core Mode: Provides an abundance of raw processing power for all audio, video and control processing requirements including integration with the new Q-SYS AV-to-USB Bridging solution and onboard acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) processing, allowing the ability to manage multiple small- to mid-sized conference spaces or a single large space.

I/O Frame Mode: Offers the ability to integrate up to 128 x 128 audio channels in to the Q-SYS system for processing on a separate Q-SYS Core processor.

External Device Control: Control and interface with external devices using TCP/IP, RS232 and GPIO.

Peripheral Integration: The catalog of Q-SYS networked peripheral devices include amplifiers, touchscreen controllers, paging stations, I/O channel expanders, PTZ-IP conference cameras for the conference room and AV-to-USB Bridging devices.

Unified Software Platform: The integrator has a single training investment in one software design tool rather than needing to learn several platforms to scale from small to large systems. The Q-SYS Platform also allows for faster compliance with changing security environments.
