As Q-SYS supports spatial audio capabilities for Microsoft Teams Rooms, including Signature Teams Rooms it heads to ISE 2023 (stand 2V400) to showcase its systems. For systems utilizing certified Q-SYS audio, video, and control processing in Teams Rooms environments, users can now experience spatial audio allowing the audio of the remote participants to come from the direction of where the specific person talking is located on the screen, creating a more immersive and natural experience for in-room participants. Furthermore, the spatial audio feature with Teams Rooms can be supported at the software level via Q-SYS Designer Software, eliminating the need for additional hardware.
