QSC ALL AT SEA — AV.technology
QSC has announced that several key components of its Q-Sys networked audio management platform, and all of the models in the CX QSC amplifier line, have achieved IEC60945 certification. This is the final stage in the process of rendering them eligible for use at sea under the internationally-recognised maritime safety conventions known collectively as SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea). The QSC Core 1000, 3000 and 4000 processors, together with their associated Page Stations, I/O Frame audio interfaces and CX amplifiers achieved IEC60945 certification (SOLAS) by conforming to an extremely stringent set of standards. It is illegal to use equipment on the high seas that has not achieved SOLAS certification, and indeed a vessel’s maritime insurance may be invalidated unless all equipment used on board is SOLAS-approved. The IEC60945 certification of QSC’s Q-Sys components follows many months of work in collaboration with maritime safety and AV entertainment systems integrator FUNA.
