RAVE 520uz
QSControl.net Digital System
QSControl.net, QSC’s next generation network audio
system, achieves the seamless integration of the
company’s signal transport, control, processing, and
monitoring technologies. QSControl.net brings together
QSC’s digital, power amplification and loudspeaker
products into a unified system that enables the user
to administrate it all via a fully integrated graphical user
interface. The new generation RAVE devices are designed
to operate under the company’s QSControl.net platform.
RAVE 520uz
The RAVE platform meets the processing and signal
transport needs of audio systems over an Ethernet
network. The RAVE 520uz units combine two distinct QSC
technologies within a single hardware unit. Configurable
DSP, and CobraNet™ audio transport are seamlessly
integrated into one powerful single RU package.
Through QSControl.net, QSC’s BASIS and next-generation
RAVE and DSP products can be networked together and
controlled from a single software interface. In addition,
multiple networked computers can be set up to control
and monitor all of the units simultaneously.
Fixed Latency DSP
Users of most other configurable DSP systems are
familiar with a variable latency inherent in the processing
configuration. Add more processing blocks and you also
add delay, whether you want it or not. QSC’s DSP engine
is unique in having a short and fixed processing latency
through the DSP subsystem. QSC’s fixed latency DSP is
configurable DSP that stays fast and predictable from one
configuration to the next.
