QSC Promotes Barry Ferrell to Vice President of Cinema

QSC Audio Products is pleased to announce the promotion of Barry Ferrell to the position of Vice President, Cinema. In his new role, Ferrell will lead the way for the company’s outstanding cinema solutions in the future, as he has for every single cinema product that the QSC has developed during his two-decade career at the company.

Barry began his career at QSC in 1990 as an Applications Engineer and was the first technical hire at the company in the sales and marketing department. After holding a number of different positions there, Barry assumed the leadership role of the Cinema Group at QSC in 2009. Under Barry’s leadership, QSC has become a household name in the global cinema market. 
“Barry has led our Cinema efforts in every way, including the development of many outstanding products for this important marketplace,” says QSC CEO Joe Pham. “I am very excited for Barry to be at the helm as we continue to offer our next generation of complete Cinema solutions.” 
Over his 22 year career at QSC, Barry has served as the product manager for every single cinema product developed at QSC. This includes the DCA amplifiers, DCM crossover/monitors, DCS loudspeakers and most recently the DCP line of Digital Cinema Processors. 
Barry’s insight into cinema products is driven by his knowledge of the growing needs of the marketplace and by his practical experience. He began his career in cinema and professional audio in 1980 when he was hired as an usher at a local cinema and quickly moved in to the projection booth. Working in the booth and doing audio installation and service work for a major theme park proved to the ideal fit for Barry. In 1985, Barry worked for National Amusements as a union projectionist out of local #327 before moving to Omaha in 1987 to take over the console pre-wire department at Ballantyne Strong. After building and shipping several thousand projection consoles, the Omaha winters drove Barry to seek opportunities in southern California, leading him to QSC. 
Throughout his years at QSC, Barry has devoted his career to improving the audio experience in cinemas. 
“I am very proud of the full systems solutions for Cinema that QSC has developed over the years – from amplifiers to loudspeakers to digital cinema processors – we offer the marketplace a total cinema solution,” says Ferrell.  “I look forward to meeting new challenges in this market. “ 
Barry is involved in the activities of the International Cinema Technology Association (ICTA) and is a frequent contributor to their technical seminars, is a past president of the organization and currently serves on the board of directors.
