QSC, LLC announces that the Q-SYS Platform will support AES67, an interoperability standard for audio-over-IP between various networking solutions. This new feature will be part of the upcoming Q-SYS Designer v5.3 software release. AES67 allows high performance audio streaming between Q-SYS and third-party products supporting different native networked audio technology such as Dante, Ravenna and Livewire without requiring any additional hardware or license costs.

QSC, LLC announces that the Q-SYS Platform will support AES67, an interoperability standard for audio-over-IP between various networking solutions. This new feature will be added to the Q-SYS Platform as part of the upcoming Q-SYS Designer v5.3 software release.
 
AES67 allows high performance audio streaming between Q-SYS and third-party products supporting different native networked audio technology such as Dante, Ravenna and Livewire without requiring any additional hardware or license costs.
 
Martin Barbour, QSC product manager for installed systems says, “The support of AES67 is yet another example of the malleable and evolutionary nature of the Q-SYS Platform. We are committed to making this platform the I/O agnostic, interoperable standard in the industry, which is why support of AES67 is so vital to the industry.”
 
AES67 is a standard for audio-over-IP interoperability and was published by the Audio Engineering Society (AES) in 2013. AES67 is a Layer-3 protocol suite and is designed to allow audio interoperability between any networked audio solution based on Layer-3 technology. Owing to its base on Layer-3 technology, AES67 is fully routable and scalable, like any common modern IT network.
