Below you will find the different input/output cards available to populate the card slots for Q-Sys Core and I/O Frame. One important thing to note: due to the chassis architecture of the Core and I/O Frame, you must fill all available card slots in the Core and I/O Frame. If you do not have the need to fill all of the slots with functioning cards, QSC offers BLANK non-functional cards to be used as placeholders.
CIML4 - This is a four-channel card with industry-standard Mic/Line Analog Inputs. Its dynamic range matches the specs of almost every DSP box, so it's perfect for most medium to high-level analog inputs. 48-volt phantom power is available on each channel, selectable by the Q-Sys Designer software.
CIML4-HP – This is a High Performance Mic/Line Analog Input Card, with broadcast quality microphone preamps. Much like the CIML4, this card also provides four channels of microphone and line-level analog audio input. However, the HP version gives you a lot more dynamic range and higher performance A/D converters and pre-amplifiers than the CIML4. It also has 48-volt phantom power available on any channel selectable by the software.
COL4 – The Analog Line Output Card gives you four channels of balanced connectors. It's primarily used for line-level output to non-DataPort amplifiers, recording devices, and teleconference systems.
CODP4 - By using DataPort-enabled QSC amps, you can take advantage of the features provided by the DataPort™ Output Card. This card allows for four channels of audio line-level output (two channels per port), and in addition it sends control data while simultaneously receiving amplifier monitoring and status data. The DataPort card also provides DSP for loudspeaker processing and peak voltage protection as well as monitoring each loudspeaker line for open or short circuits.
CAES4 – The AES-3 Digital Input/Output Card allows four channels of input and four channels of output simultaneously. So if you filled your I/O Frame with four of these cards, you'd be able to achieve sixteen channels of input as well as sixteen channels of output from a single I/O Frame.
CCN32 – The CobraNet™ Digital Input/Output Card can be set up in four different channel configurations: 4x4, 8x8, 16x16, and 32x32. In an I/O Frame, the CobraNet card can be used in 4x4, 8x8, and 16x16 mode, whereas inserting it into a Core allows all of these as well as the additional 32x32 mode. (Note: If you plan to use a CCN32 CobraNet Card, QSC recommends installing it directly into the Core in order to utilize all 32 x 32 channels.)
