SOUTHAMPTON, UK – ChamSys has expanded its award-winning MagicQ series of consoles with the introduction of the MagicQ MQ50. Compact and lightweight, but powerful, the new console brings the same level of flexibility to the installation market that the groundbreaking MagicQ MQ70 has brought to touring.
As part of the MagicQ series, the sleekly-designed console works with advanced features such as MagicVis and MagicHD connectivity. The console’s show files are compatible with all products in the MagicQ range.
The MagicQ MQ50 offers six universes of control and supports four assignable physical DMX outputs, MIDI and audio in and out, to open new creative possibilities for programmers and designers working at mid-sized theatres, clubs, schools, houses of worship or any similar installation.
Easy to operate, the new console features an intuitive high-quality multi-touch HD display and 10 full Cue Stack playbacks over 200 pages, as well as a network port for ArtNet and sACN output. RDM autopatch enables automatic configuration of the console to the connected fixtures. WIFI is inbuilt to the console with QR code scanning for quick and easy connection to the ChamSys MagicQ Remote App without the need for external networking hardware or any networking knowledge.
Small to mid-sized venues that are seeking to engage visitors with compelling visual settings will find the new MagicQ MQ50 to be an invaluable tool. With inbuilt pixel mapping and color mixing on all fixture color emitters including white, amber, UV and lime, it makes creating complex looks simpler than ever.
Based in the UK, ChamSys Ltd. was founded in 2003 by a group of designers and product developers seeking to create a lighting console that offered greater flexibility. The company’s MagicQ range has set an industry standard used in some of the most prominent concert, theatre, broadcast and club applications around the world. ChamSys was acquired in 2017 by Chauvet & Sons LLC, a leading global provider of professional luminaires, trusses, controllers and related equipment headquartered in the USA.
