The d&b plug-in module for QSC Q-SYS enables the full integration of d&b amplifiers into the control domain of a Q-SYS DSP network. Amongst others the d&b Q-SYS plug-in module provides control of d&b amplifier parameters such as Gain, Mute, Preset Recall and Power On/Off. It also reads several types of status information from the amplifiers like Input and Output Signal Monitoring, Metering, Power Ok, Amplifier Status and others. Within the Q-SYS Designer software environment these controls can be connected to Q-SYS control components and indicators enabling full system control and status monitoring on any QSC control device or through any Q-SYS control interface.
A media control system can manage audio, video and lighting from one control unit and typically consists of a control unit and at least one user interface such as a touch panel. Media control modules are comparable to templates. Designed to reduce the programming effort, the integrator can concentrate on the needs of the user. d&b audiotechnik has collaborated with media control manufacturers and other solution providers to offer control modules. The modules can be downloaded below.
Media control with CAN
The R70 Ethernet to CAN interface is used to physically integrate a media control system with the d&b Remote network. Implementation support is provided by the respective media control manufacturer. d&b audiotechnik is a certified Crestron Integrated Partner and an AMX InConcert Partner, silver level.

R1 project files can be configured to automatically open in full screen mode on start up of the PC.
User friendly control interfaces can be created, with password protection functions securing various access levels for different users. This utility enables any user to operate a loudspeaker system, to adjust volume, status settings, and recall features whilst preventing other changes to the setup, which are only accessible to system operators.
IEC 60849 'Sound Systems for Emergency Purposes' applications
For incorporation within applications specified to the requirements stated in the International Standard IEC 60849 Sound Systems for Emergency Purposes, a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) can be integrated into the d&b Remote network. It can report faults and set the d&b system into a defined alarm status. Input channel, equalization, volume, delay and filters are adjusted. For this purpose the respective AmpPresets of the d&b D6 and D12 amplifiers are used. When the alarm ceases the original settings for the d&b system can be recalled. A PLC can run as the primary master and the R1 remote control can be configured as the secondary master. In this configuration the PLC commands will override the R1 remote control software.
