Created from the ground-up, Q-SYS is a software-based platform built around an open IT-friendly ecosystem. It uniquely leverages the power of Intel processing, the robustness and mission critical reliability of a Linux operating system, and the interoperability of IEEE networking standards. This IT-centric layered approach allows QSC to easily migrate the Q-SYS Platform to other Intel platforms as they introduce new, faster chipsets, and to other off-the-shelf hardware. Furthermore, its usage of IT standard protocols makes the Q-SYS Platform highly extensible for future IT functions and platforms.


DCIO is a cinema-specific interface that serves as the audio I/O for each screen in a Q-SYS™ enabled cinema complex. The DCIO – along with Q-SYS Cores, DPA-Q amplifiers and DCS loudspeakers – provides a cost-effective way to realize the full benefits of a Q-SYS enabled cinema for every room in a multiplex, by delivering a full-system approach to cinema audio design. Using Q-SYS Designer and custom UCIs, touchpanels, and mobile apps, the user can configure, control, and monitor their theatre audio equipment through a seamless system view.
