At ISE, QSC unveiled new monitoring and management technology, software feature licensing, drag-and-drop visual programming and native touch screen controllers. Designed for the IT and AV professional, the Q-SYS integrated audio, video and control platform offers a re-imagined software-focused control paradigm including full-featured contemporary programming tools, native touch screen controllers, drag-and-drop visual programming capabilities, as well as flexible and scalable management and monitoring capabilities needed for today’s enterprise.

 

Addressing the fundamental need for IT/AV system administrators to easily monitor and manage their AV systems, Q-SYS Reflect is a new management platform for the Q-SYS eco-system, that offers two different versions. Q-SYS Reflect Core Manager runs natively on the Q-SYS Core processor and provides a more modern and secure interface for common, IT related tasks on the Q-SYS hardware. Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager extends that web platform to the cloud and provides a hosted solution to monitor and manage multiple Q-SYS systems including Core processors and peripherals. Regardless of whether AV assets are distributed within a single building or across an entire global enterprise, Q-SYS Reflect delivers valuable real-time data and insights for monitoring, diagnostics and troubleshooting.

“We recognize that our customers want to avoid bloated management systems that require extraneous setup and deployment complexities, and will not settle for rough bolt-on AV modifications to existing building asset managers,” said Martin Barbour, Product Manager for Installed Systems, QSC. “Q-SYS Reflect will address those needs by providing streamlined setup and configuration with security and manageability at the forefront of the user experience.”

QSC will initially offer Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager as a hosted cloud-based solution. In future product details and feature updates, QSC will include an on-premise version as well as a robust API, which will allow users to connect and integrate Q-SYS Reflect with other enterprise management applications and dashboards as desired.

Barbour added, “When this technology reaches its fullest stage of maturity, it will be the first platform of its kind to deliver a holistic, global view of Q-SYS systems in a format that IT professionals have come to expect from their IT infrastructure.”
