With Core-to-Core streaming, a situation may arise where you need to transmit audio from one Q-SYS Core processor to multiple Cores. Since Q-LAN streams are unicast, this is not possible with Q-LAN Transmitters - a transmitted Q-LAN stream can only be selected on a single Q-LAN Receiver. If you attempt to select the same Q-LAN stream on multiple Q-LAN Receivers, only one will work while others are likely to fault to a "PTP Grandmaster Mismatch" error.
To stream from one Core to multiple Cores, there are a few options:
- use System Links for transmitting multicast audio between Cores
- use AES67 Receivers and Transmitters
- use a separate Q-LAN Transmitter for each destination Q-LAN Receiver
