Train Now for Cinema’s Comeback


TIME magazine recently shared that “the post-pandemic return to the theaters could turn out to be one of the most significant events in the history of watching movies.”

It is quite likely the cinema industry is looking at massive re-openings around the world, enormous revenues, new and improved cinemas, and …a skyrocketing need for trained cinema installers and technicians.

Full Multiplex Experience

In anticipation for this exciting comeback, cinemas are looking to deliver a more immersive experience outside just the movie theater. To do this, they are moving from traditional, hardware-based, fixed-architecture cinema processors to open-architecture software-based solutions.

Q-SYS goes beyond delivering audio to each auditorium to support the theater complex, including background music in the lobby/bar/game room, control for digital signage, lighting, door magnets, and masking motors, and additional AV support for conference rooms, meeting rooms, and special event spaces.

Time for Training

For new technicians/installers and seasoned AV veterans alike, the best way to prep for these upcoming advancements and changes is to learn what it’s all about. That’s where the QSC Training & Education Department comes in!

Our talented content creators, editors, onscreen presenters, and live class facilitators (including me!) represent a uniquely high-level of expertise, technical savvy, and personality that are rare to find in the often dull and complicated worlds of technical, software, and audio training.
