QSC Partners with Microsoft Teams to Deliver Enhanced Room Solutions

QSC today announced new QSC Room Solutions for Microsoft Teams, which deliver “all AV elements of the room including compute, audio, video and room control in a package certified for Teams and geared for IT departments to scale Teams Rooms deployments,” according to the joint announcement.

As part of this offering, QSC is also announcing new Microsoft Teams-certified accessories for the Q-SYS Ecosystem and a host of new Teams Rooms-related software innovations.

The QSC Room Solutions are built around the existing QSC portfolio of Teams Rooms certified accessories, along with products from our partners.

Additionally, the Q-SYS native PTZ-IP conference cameras, which are in the process of testing and validation to attain certification for Teams, can simplify room deployments in specialty rooms like divisible spaces, training rooms, executive boardrooms and all-hands spaces.

More About QSC-Microsoft Teams Pairing

QSC Room Solutions are accompanied by a suite of QSC software for the Teams Rooms experience that work collectively to simplify the integration process, enable full room control and Teams Rooms call control onto a single device and unify the experience for the end user.

The upcoming release of Q-SYS Designer Software v9.0 will include specific software components for Teams Rooms to allow for direct integration and collective control of Q-SYS and the room’s third-party devices, all from a singular Microsoft certified controller device, and has been optimized for the Logitech Tap controller.

It will also add remote monitoring capabilities for QSC Room Solutions certified devices via cloud-based Q-SYS Reflect Enterprise Manager.

Other software innovations include sample room designs that adhere to Microsoft audio performance standards, configuration wizard for room audio optimization, Q-SYS UCI for Teams Rooms to deliver the familiar aesthetic, commissioning tools for Teams Rooms workflows and a Teams Rooms feature license to enable Q-SYS user control interface deployment functionality and Q-SYS control engine.

“We have worked closely with our partners and the market to identify and deliver a premium Teams experience through software and hardware innovations to high-value spaces,” said Jason Moss, VP of alliances and market development for QSC.

“We believe these tools and integrations will lead to far greater empowerment of IT professionals to take control and effectively manage their specialty collaboration spaces,” he said.
