Based on our proven Quasar Engine platform, Quasar Engine RPS brings many of the features and functions normally managed by the Master Module found in every Quasar control surface to the engine itself. This makes it possible to create a standalone mixer without the need for an actual XR or SR surface, instead using the browser-based Quasar Soft user interface.
It is ideal for situations where a physical console is either unnecessary or impractical, such as small studios or backup facilities. It also provides a lower-cost backup to a main hardware console. Each Quasar Engine RPS includes Quasar Soft (for mixing), Quasar Cast (for low-latency monitoring), and like the standard Quasar Engine, 16 mixer channels. Additional channel expansion licenses are optionally available.
Quasar Engine RPS can also be used in situations where a physical XR or SR console is already installed. In this case, the user can choose whether to control the Engine mixing functions from the hardware console, from the Quasar Soft surface provided by the console, or from the Quasar Soft surface provided by Quasar Engine RPS.
In addition to being available as a unique, ready-to-use product, existing Quasar Engines can be field-upgraded by way of the RPS Upgrade Kit, which contains the RPS card and all associated mounting hardware. While Quasar Engine RPS includes a Quasar Soft and Quasar Cast license, RPS Upgrade Kits do not, and licenses must be purchased separately.
