Q-Sys Monitoring Plugin

The new Q-Sys Monitoring Plugin allows DCi and I-Tech HD series amplifiers to fully integrate into QSC Q-Sys solutions and provides high-level access to critical parameters for real-time monitoring and system supervision.

Features include include metering, fault monitoring, and output load supervision, access to parameters for configuring pilot tone load monitoring, and preset recall functionality. 

All parameters are accessible via Pins and the plugin integrates into Q-Sys event logging functionality.

The existing HARMAN HiQnet Audio Architect and JBL Performance Manager software applications are required for system configuration.

The new Q-Sys plugins can be downloaded from the DCi Q-Sys Plugin software page or the I-Tech HD Q-Sys Plugin software page.

BIM Objects and 2D and 3D Drawings

The new BIM (Building Information Modelling) files enable architects, building engineers, and system designers to represent Crown amplifiers and many of their attributes in Revit models. New BIM models are now available for all DCi and I-Tech-HD models, enabling accurate project visualisation and data modelling.

Additionally, updated 2D and 3D CAD models are now available for inclusion in other popular CAD software like AutoCAD, Sketchup, Vectorworks, etc.

The BIM models can be downloaded from the Downloads/Software section of any DCi or I-Tech HD product page on the Crown website.
