ChamSys MagicQ MQ500 Stadium Honored With PIPA Award At Prolight + Sound

FRANKFURT, GERMANY – (For Immediate Release) – The ChamSys MagicQ MQ500 Stadium received the Prolight + Sound International Press Award (PIPA) for “Best Product of the Year” in the lighting control category.   Based on voting by over 100 journalists from specialized publications, the award was presented on April 6th at the Prolight + Sound show.

“This award is a tribute to the ChamSys design ethos,” said ChamSys Managing Director Chris Kennedy. “ChamSys has been built on giving the end-user as much freedom and flexibility as possible, because we respect the creativity that’s inherent in the design process.”

Featuring a built-in MagicVis 3D Visualizer with high quality renderings, dual multi-touch displays in full HD with adjustable viewing angles, an intensity wheel, 100mm split crossfaders for theatre control, 42 fader and executor playbacks for live busking, the 200- universe MagicQ MQ500 Stadium provides programmers  with the highest level of show control while remaining intuitive and user-friendly.

“We’re very honored that some of the best journalists in our industry have seen fit to vote for the MagicQ MQ500 Stadium,” said Kennedy. “As a group, these journalists are very well informed. Not only do they devote a great deal of time to covering this industry, but in many cases, they’re also programmers and designers themselves -- so they’re familiar with the issues and opportunities that surround lighting control.”
