The Q-SYS Core 610 represents the next-generation of Q-SYS processing, pairing the Q-SYS OS with enterprise-grade Dell COTS server hardware to deliver a flexible and scalable audio, video and control solution for a vast range of larger scale applications. It is a fully networked AV&C processor, letting you distribute network I/O where it’s most convenient. The Core 610 is equally suited for centralized processing for multiple meeting rooms in enterprise applications, as well as handling larger spaces or venues in hospitality, entertainment, or transit hubs.

Q-SYS + Dell:
Through its partnership with Dell, Q-SYS deployed the full-featured, software-based foundation of the Q-SYS OS on an industry-tested Dell server to deliver a uniquely flexible and scalable audio, video, and control solution. Like the rest of the Q-SYS processing portfolio, the Core 610 offers a configurable audio DSP, full-featured control engine and network-based video switching in a single processor, greatly simplifying system design and deployment.

Network-Based AV&C Solution:
The Core 610 is a fully-networked AV&C processor, providing the flexibility to centralize the location of the processor and even use it across multiple rooms, and then position your desired I/O (either native Q-SYS Products or third-party devices) closer to the endpoints, resulting in a more streamlined system topology. This makes it equally suited for corporate applications requiring a single centralized processor for multiple meeting spaces, as well as larger venues across hospitality, entertainment and transportation.

Rightsize Feature Sets at the Software Level:
Q-SYS Scaling and Feature licenses let you tailor system capabilities to your specific application through simple firmware updates. Whether you’re choosing features before installation or adding functionality as your business needs change, Q-SYS makes it simple to add the right features when you need them. Learn more.

Q-SYS Core 610 Scaling License (available in Q-SYS Designer Software v9.9, coming in fall 2023):
Increases the overall power of the processor, increasing capacity for total network channels, Media/WAN streaming channels, AEC channels and Q-SYS NM Series microphone capacity – all without the need for additional hardware.

Designed for Q-SYS:
The Q-SYS Core 610 is part of Q-SYS, a cloud-manageable audio, video, and control platform built to deliver flexible, scalable AV solutions into the future.
