How To | Get AES67 audio to a Q-SYS core processor from an Atlona OmniStream AV encoder

Learn how to set up an audio path from an Atlona OmniStream AV encoder to a Q-SYS Core Processor using AES67.

When the SAP announcement is invalid, no AES67 audio data will flow because the Q-SYS core processor is not the clock (PTP) grandmaster.

To solve this, open the Atlona app and configure the OmniStream device this way:

  1. Click on System information.
  2. Select Session
  3. Turn off FEC enable. This disables forward error correction (FEC).

  1. Select PTP
  2. Set Priority 1 to 255 and Priority 2 also to 255. This will assign the Q-SYS core processor the role of grandmaster.

  1. Select Alarms. There may be one or more warnings that FEC cannot be enabled for AES67 audio streams. This is acceptable to ensure AES67 operation with the Q-SYS core processor.
