Presentation spaces are often expected to serve many functions – to be a place to hear lectures, watch live performances, host academic and business conferences, or experience recorded audiovisual and motion picture content. Our expertise and technology in commercial theatrical exhibition is now available for technology and venue managers who want to deliver the “cinema-quality” experience in their multipurpose presentation space.

Q-SYS Cinema Audiovisual Solutions are audio systems that are capable of reproducing more than two channels from the audio source. Audio content is often created to deliver a very specific and deliberate cinema audiovisual experience (such as movies and multimedia presentations that include surround or immersive sound content), with channels assigned to specific loudspeaker locations. Also, many audio systems are designed to synthesize a cinema audiovisual experience from a two-channel source, with less emphasis on reproducing the content creator’s intent. The equipment required to reproduce either of these experiences comprises a Q-SYS Cinema Audiovisual Solution (CAS). CAS are intended for use in venues such as multipurpose/multi-use auditoriums for institutions of higher education, theme parks, museums, cruise ships, and other applications.
