Q-SYS NC Series Conference Cameras

The new NC Series includes three models that empower integrators and IT administrators to rightsize camera selection for their Q-SYS installation. The Q-SYS NC-110 (opens in new tab) is the first fixed-lens, ePTZ camera available for Q-SYS, featuring a 110° horizontal field-of-view (hFOV) with digital zoom capabilities for smaller, wider rooms. The new Q-SYS NC-12x80 (opens in new tab) (12x optical zoom, 80° horizontal FOV) and Q-SYS NC-20x60 (opens in new tab) (20x optical zoom, 60° horizontal FOV) both offer motorized pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) functionality to enable a broader range of room layouts, sizes and purpose. In addition, all NC Series cameras include hardware to allow mounting above or below displays, providing greater flexibly for a wide variety of use cases.

As native Q-SYS devices, the NC Series overcomes one-to-one routing, delivery and visual limitations of typical USB camera solutions. This is enabled by allowing as many Q-SYS IP camera streams on the network as necessary for the application, and then decoding, scaling and bridging to the host PC/compute with a Q-SYS USB-enabled edge device, all without the need for complicated programming or video matrix hardware. A consolidated AV stream is then delivered to any modern videoconferencing application like Microsoft Teams Rooms (opens in new tab)Zoom Rooms (opens in new tab) or Google Meet (opens in new tab) via single driverless USB connection.

“With these new conference cameras, QSC is demonstrating its commitment to providing scalable video conferencing solutions for collaboration spaces in an effort to create experience equity for both remote and in-room participants,” says Mike Brandes, Product Manager, Q-SYS Video Solutions, QSC. “Furthermore, users can combine these new products with smaller channel count processing options found in the Q-SYS Core Nano (opens in new tab) or Q-SYS Core 8 Flex (opens in new tab) to expand software-based audio, video & control into smaller collaboration spaces.”
