Qt X Software - bulk update

Bulk updates allow setting or modifying the audio input and output settings of a device in groups to expedite the configuration process.

Note: This feature is only available in the Qt X software application.


Configuration - Input

Change phantom power selection and preamp gain by using the input tab. Select one, multiple, or all input channels from the list via the checkboxes. The options in each row of the input channel may also be used to make individual adjustments:


Select the edit button to bring up the Input Settings window. Selections made in the Input Settings window will be applied to all selected devices:



Configuration - Output

The bulk update output tab allows changes to the emitter/speaker type for multiple outputs. Select one, multiple, or all output channels from the list via the checkboxes. They must all be the same device type (Qt X 300/600 or Qt X800/805):


Clicking the edit button will bring up the emitter/speaker type window. Selections made in the emitter/speaker type window will be applied to all selected devices:



Devices and Systems

Bulk Updates can also be made to the audio settings and levels in groups of like outputs in a running configuration. This is done via the Devices and Systems window. You must first refresh the devices and have a system selected for the output settings icon to be available. 


Click on the checkboxes of the desired devices. They must share the same emitter speaker type, and should be in the same type of environment. Click the 'Bulk Update' button to bring up the levels setting window. All of the affected outputs and zones will be displayed in a small box on the bottom right.  






Create Presets by making changes to the settings and then click the 'Create Preset' button. An explorer window will open and allow you to save the preset file (*.qtxpre).  The generated file name will contain the details of where the preset is coming from. Press 'Save' to save the file. 




Load presets by opening the dropdown list. Choose the appropriate preset. You must use the same type of device (emitter or speaker), and should have the same area characteristics (room size, ceiling height, environment). If Auto Update is enabled, the change will be sent to the device immediately. Otherwise, Click 'Apply' to send the information. 



Bulk Device Information Settings

**Coming in Qt X SW version 2.4**

From the Devices & Systems tab, multiple controllers may be selected as a group to commit changes. This allows for network media type, cable mode, or network interface changes to be done on all selected controllers as a group. 

This is designed to speed up the deployment process across larger systems. 

As shown in the example, devices selected may be different model types, but must be AVB only or AVB/Dante "D' variants for proper Bulk Device Information functionality.



Note: Devices must be in an unconfigured state to make changes in the network tab.
