Ahh, lost in Las Vegas. CX wraps up our roundup of new gear from the floors of Infocomm ’24.



Q-SYS introduced the QIO-FLEX4A and QIO-LVR4 network I/O expanders, and the PS-TSCG3 Touchscreen Paging Station kit.

As part of the Q-SYS QIO Series, the QIO- FLEX4A features audio and control I/O in a consolidated network peripheral. It offers four Flex audio channels, GPIO and RS232 serial port to integrate control of third-party peripherals, and two amplifier outputs for compact loudspeakers.

Meanwhile, QIO-LVR4 offers four contact closure relays to enable simple control integration of third-party lighting systems, motorized shades, and more.

The PS-TSCG3 Touchscreen Paging Station kit pairs with the TSC-G3 Series touchscreen and the robust Q-SYS Control engine to enable live paging, pre-recorded message playback, and seamless background music (BGM) management. This page station solution is available as either a desktop model (PS- TSCG3-G) with a gooseneck microphone and push-to-talk button, or a wall-mount model (PS-TSCG3-H) with a handheld microphone and push-to-talk button.

Q-SYS Reflect

Q-SYS also announced a significant update to Q-SYS Reflect, it’s cloud monitoring and management software. Q-SYS Reflect Plus expands on the standard features of Q-SYS Reflect by providing optional enterprise-level remote system management and control capabilities. It allows administrators to directly assist users and systems from any web browser, quickly getting systems up and running. In addition, it offers the ability to configure and adjust system settings remotely, deploy firmware updates, manage files and connect Q-SYS system data to your IT management platforms via the Q-SYS Reflect API for a single-pane-of-glass view into your entire infrastructure.

Finally, the pricing structure for Q-SYS Reflect Plus has been reengineered based on the number of Q-SYS systems (rather than connected devices), simplifying the users’ ability to expand the system when necessary.
