The Q-SYS™ Cinema Core 510c processor is an audio, video and control processing system that leverages Intel™ CPUs and motherboards as well as a dedicated, Linux™ realtime operating system developed by QSC to provide class-leading capabilities for Cinema systems of any scale. The Q-SYS Cinema Core 510c processor offers the most flexible audio I/O of any Core in the Q-SYS Platform, perfect for applications that require a diversity of analog, digital and networked audio connectivity. It features eight onboard I/O card slots that can be populated with any combination of Q-SYS Type-II I/O card allowing diverse connectivity options.

  • Q-SYS Platform:   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.
  • 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.
