QSC announces Q-SYS control training series
The US audio manufacturer offers online and classroom courses which teach control programming fundamentals for the Q-SYS Platform
QSC has announced its new Q-SYS Control Training series, divided into two separate courses.
Q-SYS Control 101, offers an online introductory course with 20 videos that lay the foundation for programming for beginners, as well as those who have previous knowledge specifically on the Q-SYS platform. The course includes Q-SYS plugins, custom control components, the new block controller visual coding tool, and an introduction to Lua scripting. It will take around 4-5 hours to complete, and it provides 2.5 AVIXA CTS renewal units (RUs) at its conclusion.
Q-SYS Control 201 provides in-class training, which applies this foundation to common third-party meeting room devices and control scenarios. It also allows students to apply the learning from Control 101 to real-world applications and scenarios. The classes will begin this month and offer 4.0 AVIXA CTS RUs after course completion.
Director of marketing for QSC Systems, Patrick Heyn said: “The Q-SYS Platform offers a unique approach to AV control, achieving more flexibility and scalability than any control platform, all without dedicated control hardware. This new training curriculum represents a major milestone for Q-SYS by pairing a simplified control paradigm with an equally simplified way of learning control. Our training takes full advantage of the modern scripting languages and innovative tools available in Q-SYS Designer Software to teach fundamental programming principles in a matter of days rather than weeks and months. Moreover, we are proud to deliver this content in a way that is fun, interactive and accessible for programmers of all levels. I can’t wait for the AV community to take this new journey with us!”
