A QSC Q-Sys audio management system – based around a Core 250i integrated processor – has been installed at the Tezpur centre of the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI).
The project was carried out as part of a conference room refurbishment – designed to provide improved audio input to the existing video conferencing system – at the facility in Assam.
The system, supplied by Pro Visual Audio, QSC's Indian distributor, and installed by QSC System Integration Partner Cineworth Sales and Services, has given the Institute clear, echo-free conferencing facilities, which is largely due to the inclusion of AEC, the Acoustic Echo Cancellation algorithm.
A standard feature of QSC's Q-Sys Designer Release 3.0 software (and subsequent releases), and available for all Q-Sys Cores, AEC prevents the introduction of audio feedback.
"They (ISI staff) wanted an open system that could be expanded in the future, and so Cineworth suggested Q-Sys," said Biplob Saha, deputy general manager – sales at Pro Visual Audio. "ISI also considered an alternative system from Bose, but in the end they liked the future-ready nature of the Q-Sys platform, and the fact that it's based on industry-standard Layer 3 networking technology. They were also impressed by the AEC algorithm and that helped the QSC solution score over the competition."
The new set-up accepts input from a number of Audio-Technica mics placed around the conference room, before passing the feeds into the QSC Core 250i processor. Audio from the connected parties on the conference system is played back through four QSC AD-S82H speakers (pictured) placed around the room, and driven by a QSC CX302 amplifier.
