Chamsys MQ80 Hire

Yes, I'm available to hire

The MagicQ MQ80 hire is an extremely powerful console in a small size, supporting 24 universes direct from the console. The large central touch screen provides easy access to all MagicQ features and display and selection from full lighting plots. It features the same flexible lighting control, media server connectivity and in-built Pixel Mapper found in all MagicQ consoles, and uses the same software and show formats, enabling compatibility between all MagicQ products. New shows can be loaded into MagicQ consoles running older software and old shows can be loaded into newer software.

The MagicQ software features include easy patching from a library of 13000 fixture personalities, simple attribute selection and programming, flexible live lighting control and a powerful inbuilt Pixel Mapper. It can be connected via network to a PC or Mac running ChamSys free MagicVis lighting visualisation software for full visualisation of all the universes at no extra cost. Alternatively, the MQ80 can be connected via network to a PC or Mac running ChamSys free MagicHD media player software for output of up to 8 layers of HD media at no extra cost.

The MQ80 hire outputs all universes direct over Ethernet using Art-Net I, II or III, Pathport, or Streaming ACN – there is no need for network nodes. The console incorporates high reliability components, including high durability metal Neutrik Ethercon locking connectors for easy and reliable networking. As with other MagicQ consoles, the Ethernet switch is protected by the UPS, thus ensuring that both the console and the network switch maintain operation even during a power loss.
