The Q-SYS NC Series PTZ conference cameras deliver high-quality video feeds natively to the Q-SYS Platform. The Q-SYS NC-12x80 and Q-SYS NC-20x60 both offer motorized pan, tilt, and zoom (PTZ) functionality to enable a more broad range of room layouts, sizes and purpose. Joined by the NC-110 ePTZ model, the entire NC Series offers simple and scalable video solutions for any size meeting space.

Driven by the Q-SYS OS, the NC Series integrate seamlessly into any Q-SYS system, allowing for easy camera feed routing anywhere on the network without the need for complicated programming or video matrix hardware. These camera video feeds can be delivered to any modern video conferencing applications such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet and Cisco Webex via any Q-SYS AV bridging peripheral.

New look and Updated Features: Along with its new, more discreet aesthetic, the NC Series PTZ conference cameras deliver a superior imaging platform compared to the PTZ-IP Series, and both offer motorized pan, tilt, zoom functionality to support a broader range of room types. Each of the PTZ models offers an optical zoom lens (12x on the NC-12x80 and 20x on the NC20x60) which provide for a higher quality image when fully zoomed in (as compared to a digital zoom, like in the NC-110). Both models also offer a 4K image sensor with the ability to output a 1080p stream for a better, clearer and crisper image.

Network simplicity, USB delivery: NC Series solves the cable length limitations of traditional cameras solutions by enlisting a single network cable for video, power and control data transport into Q-SYS, and then employs USB technology to deliver the video to its intended PC/compute device. This greatly simplifies system design and deployment by eliminating the need for costly, unreliable USB cabling. Furthermore, NC Series goes beyond the traditional 1-to-1 limitation found in most USB cameras by allowing for a “many-to-any” scenario that allows users to integrate as many NC Series cameras as needed in their Q-SYS system design and take advantage of network-based realtime camera switching.

Universal Compatibility: The feeds from NC Series cameras, along with Q-SYS room audio, can be delivered to the conferencing application of your choice. With this functionality, Q-SYS can scale the meeting experience for Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Cisco Webex and more into rooms of any size or configuration to ensure a great experience parity for both in-room and remote meeting participants.

Designed for Q-SYS: NC Series collaboration cameras are native to Q-SYS, a cloud-manageable audio, video and control platform, built to deliver scalable, flexible AV solutions into the future. At its foundation, the Q-SYS OS serves as the software foundation that manages your NC Series cameras along with a multitude of other native Q-SYS Products in the platform. Additionally, its modern IT architecture and development tools of the Q-SYS Platform enables an entire Ecosystem of third-party devices developed by approved Q-SYS Partners, as well as a worldwide community of Q-SYS developers.
