QSC Audio Products in Costa Mesa, Calif., announces that Acoustic Echo Cancellation (AEC) is now available as a standard component of the company's Q-Sys integrated system platform for audio system control and signal transport. Current Q-Sys customers can obtain the AEC feature at no charge by upgrading to Q-Sys Designer Release Version 3 or newer.
The QSC AEC process is designed for Q-Sys clients that use AV conferencing systems in such places as corporate boardrooms, meeting and convention spaces, hospitality installs, and government and legislative venues. It is easily deployed in Q-Sys Designer software as a simple, draggable component. QSC states that its Q-Sys solution is 100-percent integrated into the Q-Sys Core without any additional cost to the user.
“Because of the powerful Q-Sys DSP processing engines, we have been able to offer Acoustic Echo Cancellation as an integrated feature to serve our customers,” says Joe Peavey, QSC Product Manager, Software. “The tight integration between the Q-Sys processor, DSP, hardware and control software, gives Q-Sys the ability to do AEC on audio signals coming from any number of sources such as mics, remotes, I/O frames and even over IP streams.
“We are excited to be able to offer AEC to our customers with Q-Sys,” Peavey adds. “And we continually have plans in the QSC pipeline to add more advanced and powerful features to Q-Sys which will benefit our customers."
