Q-SYS Core Manager

Q-SYS Core Manager contains a set of tools for managing Q-SYS Core processors. Beginning with Q-SYS version 8.0, it replaces many of the configuration and management functions formerly found in Q-SYS Administrator and Q-SYS Configurator.

Accessing Q-SYS Core Manager

Q-SYS Core Manager is accessible from Q-SYS Designer or from a browser.

Note: If Access Control is enabled, a login username and password are required to log in to Q-SYS Core Manager. For more information, see Users.
