QSC has announced QSC Room Solutions for Microsoft Teams, delivering a singular package certified for Teams and geared for IT departments to easily scale Teams Rooms deployments. As part of this offering, QSC is also announcing new Microsoft Teams certified accessories for the Q-SYS Ecosystem and a host of new Teams Rooms-related software innovations.
The QSC Room Solutions are built around the existing QSC portfolio of Teams Rooms certified accessories, along with products from QSC’s partners. Additionally, the Q-SYS native PTZ-IP conference cameras, which are in the process of testing and validation to attain certification for Teams, can further simplify room deployments in high-value specialty rooms like divisible spaces, training rooms, executive boardrooms, and all-hands spaces.
QSC Room Solutions are accompanied by a comprehensive suite of QSC software innovations for the Teams Rooms experience that work collectively to simplify the integration process, enable full room control and Teams Rooms call control onto a single device – as well as to unify the experience for the end user. The upcoming release of Q-SYS Designer Software v9.0 will include specific software components for Teams Rooms to allow for direct integration and collective control of Q-SYS and the room’s third-party devices, all from a singular Microsoft certified controller device, and has been optimised for the Logitech Tap controller. It will also add remote monitoring capabilities for QSC Room Solutions certified devices via cloud-based Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager.
Other software innovations include sample room designs that adhere to Microsoft audio performance standards, configuration wizard for easy room audio optimisation, Q-SYS UCI for Teams Rooms to deliver the familiar aesthetic, commissioning tools for Teams Rooms workflows, and a Teams Rooms feature license to enable the necessary Q-SYS user control interface deployment functionality and Q-SYS control engine, further simplifying the purchasing and deployment process.
“We have worked closely with our partners and the market to identify and deliver a premium Teams experience through software and hardware innovations to high-value spaces,” explained Jason Moss, VP of alliances & market development at QSC. “We believe these tools and integrations will lead to far greater empowerment of IT professionals to take control and effectively manage their specialty collaboration spaces.”
