Q-SYS is a cloud-manageable audio, video and control platform built around a modern, standards-based IT architecture.

The Q-SYS OS serves as the software-based singular foundation that drives and manages a multitude of Q-SYS Products within the platform, including native software, services and hardware. Additionally, its modern IT architecture and a set of development tools (called “Q-SYS Open”) enable an entire Ecosystem of third-party integrations developed by approved/endorsed Q-SYS Partners as well as a worldwide community of Q-SYS programmers and developers.



Software-based foundation for audio, video & control. Flexible, scalable and performance driven, it was designed using industry-standard principles and mission-critical technologies. It includes a robust audio engine, video engine and control engine providing processing at the software layer, with a robust OS administrative layer that operates holistically, rather than requiring an integrator to spend time separately programming and integrating audio, video and control/automation.

Q-SYS Partners

Third-party integration. Q-SYS Partners create software, services and hardware that integrate into the Q-SYS Ecosystem and have been fully vetted and endorsed. The solutions that they develop can be integrated into the Q-SYS OS and operate alongside native Q-SYS Products. Q-SYS Partners collaborate with Q-SYS teams to develop and verify their solutions upfront, and then continue to work with Q-SYS in their support and maintenance for our mutual customers.

Q-SYS Open

Industry-standard protocols & developer tools to enable open third-party development. Q-SYS Open is a collection of open standards and published developer tools to enable third-party development within Q-SYS. The Q-SYS Open tools take full advantage of the industry hardened Q-SYS OS, namely its utilization of open industry standards and protocols, along with a collection of available developer tools for Q-SYS integration.
