Utilizing a phase plug design that improves the distribution of forces over the diaphragm surface results in a driver with lower distortion, smoother frequency response, and increased sensitivity as compared to conventional ring radiator designs.

QSC will introduce the Q-Sys Core 510i Integrated Core Processor at the ISE show in Amsterdam, which runs from Feb. 7-10. A first for QSC, the Core 510i processor can be configured as a full Q-Sys audio, video and control processing appliance or as an I/O peripheral that can accommodate any combination of Q-Sys analog, digital and networked audio I/O cards. Unlike any other Q-Sys processor, the Core 510i can be deployed in two different software configurable modes. In Q-SYS Core mode, it handles all AVC processing that can be deployed with the new Q-Sys AV-to-USB Bridging solution for soft codec conferencing applications. In I/O Frame mode, the processor can support up to 128x128 audio channels as an I/O peripheral into the Q-Sys system for processing on a separate Q-Sys Core processor. It can also accommodate any combination of Q-Sys Type-II I/O cards including Dante, CobraNet, AVB or Q-Sys analog and AES/EBU cards.
