From Chamsys we have another lighting console in the Magic Q console range. They have recently released the MagicQ MQ50 Compact. This is
MagicQ MQ50 is part of the new generation of compact consoles, ideal for small to medium-sized venues. The MQ50 features a 10.1” Multi-touch display and ten full Cue Stack playbacks over 200 pages in a compact format. With the inbuilt pixel-mapping and colour mixing on all fixture colour emitters it will make creating stunning looks much more simple for the operator and designer.
The console supports 6 universes, with 4 assignable physical DMX outputs supporting RDM and a network port for ArtNet and sACN output. This feature packed console also includes WIFI inbuilt to the console for quick and easy connection to ChamSys MagicQ Remote focus application without the need for external networking hardware or any networking knowledge.
MagicQ MQ50 is simple and easy to use for installations, clubs, and schools while still featuring advanced features such as MagicVis and MagicHD connectivity. It uses the same software and show formats, enabling compatibility between all products in the MagicQ range.
The console uses the MagicQ software so show files are compatible across all of the consoles and also the PC version.
Contemporary lighting fixtures are complex objects, often with a great many moving parts. A console that has to control all these parameters needs more than just a lot of power. It needs to have clever labor-saving techniques that make the programmer’s job easier and makes a successful show more repeatable.
MagicQ software rises to the occasion offering powerful lighting control on up to 200 universes with full lighting visualisation, pixel mapping, and HD media playback on up to 8 different layers, all integrated smoothly to streamline workflows, save time, and shorten learning curves on even the most complex lighting systems.
MagicQ software runs across the range of MagicQ consoles and is also available free of charge for use on PCs under Windows, Mac and Linux with 64 output universes fully enabled.
