Costa Mesa, Calif.-based QSC, developers of the Q-SYS networked audio, video and control platform, announced the latest addition to its native network video solutions by introducing the NV Series NV-21-HU. This is a two-input, one-output endpoint with support for HDMI and USB-C.
According to the company, the NV-21-HU thus simplifies installation with a single-cable solution for video distribution, AV bridging and device charging via USB-C. Its compact design and reduced I/O make the NV-21-HU ideal for supporting various applications. This includes meeting rooms, learning spaces, hospitality and entertainment installations.
As a software-configurable solution, NV-21-HU can be an encoder or decoder (in Q-SYS Designer Software). Here, it offers the ability to operate with either HDMI or USB-C connectivity. This enables integrators to provide a more flexible system that supports a broader range of devices. At the same time, it eliminates the need for adapters and in some cases, multiple cables. In addition, integrators can add AV Bridging (with an optional feature license) to extend the device’s functionality. With this, it can support full UC Platform bridging capabilities.
The NV-21-HU joins the Q-SYS video portfolio alongside the NV-32-H (Core Capable) video endpoint. It also features a more compact design. Additionally, the NV-21-HU provides more options to rightsize the application based on I/O density, form factor or available features providing maximum system design flexibility.
As a native Q-SYS device, users will have the added benefit of utilizing the software-based audio, video and control platform to enable drag-and-drop and no-code deployment. As a result, it helps save time and money in both the programming and installation phases.
“The NV-21-HU answers the needs for a lower-cost and more comprehensive solution that can address end user demands for an easy, frictionless user experience,” says Mike Brandes, senior product marketing manager, Q-SYS. “Its compact design and rightsized I/O make it ideal for more applications; while still providing the ease-of-use and deployment familiar to Q-SYS NV Series users.”
