Q-SYS AV Bridging Feature License


The Q-SYS AV Bridging feature license expands the functionality of the TSC Series Gen 3 network touchscreens, allowing users to connect their device via USB directly to the network touchscreen controller to integrate Q-SYS audio and camera feeds for remote meetings easily.


Features

Meetings Simplified: The Q-SYS AV Bridging feature license streamlines how video collaboration users connect their PCs to the room’s video and audio system by enabling simple, plug-and-play USB connectivity to Q-SYS via the TSC Series Gen 3 network touchscreens. This single-cable solution removes the need for unreliable USB extenders or other workarounds to integrate Q-SYS audio and video streams into UC platforms, enabling ‘bring-your-own-meeting’ scenarios where your users need it.

Software-based Benefits: Like the rest of the Q-SYS License portfolio, the Q-SYS AV Bridging feature licenses allows you to tailor your Q-SYS system’s feature set based on the unique needs of each space. Whether you’re choosing the right features before installation or adding capabilities as business needs change, these licenses expand functionality at the software level.  This removes the need for additional hardware while saving on configuration, installation, and infrastructure costs.

Simple Deployment: Activation for the Q-SYS AV Bridging license is easy.  Each device license can be deployed remotely using Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager, a cloud-based monitoring and management platform for Q-SYS. (Additional offline/local installation methods are also available.)
