MagicQ MQ80 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.

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.

MagicQ MQ80 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.

MagicQ MQ80 can also 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.

MagicQ MQ80 outputs all universes direct over Ethernet using Art-Net I, II or III, Pathport, or Streaming ACN – there is no need for network nodes.

MagicQ MQ80 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.

MagicQ MQ80 features an inbuilt power supply and UPS with locking Powercon connectors that accept voltages from 110V to 240V AC. The MagicQ MQ80 has a Kensington security slot for securing the product. Both soft bags and flight cases are available as optional extras.

Large Central Touch Screen

MagicQ consoles feature large central touch screens with 8 encoder wheels around them – this provides simple attribute and palette selection

By arranging the faders, encoders and execute buttons around the central screen, they all have electronic legends immediately adjacent – you don’t have to try to work out the function from a remote screen.

The 12inch wide screen provides all the information you need right in front of you without having to continually scroll around to find what you need. Who wants to have to plug in an external monitor just to see your Plot or to view a complete Patch List?

Compatibility

ChamSys believes that it is important for Lighting Designers to be able to move between different MagicQ consoles and different MagicQ software versions without having complicated import and export procedures. Nobody likes having to re-program their show just to meet a particular product version or software version.

With MagicQ it is simple. Any MagicQ show, any MagicQ console, any MagicQ software version.

And don’t forget – you can run MagicQ on your Windows PC, your Mac (native), or even on Linux.

Eliminating Processing Nodes

MagicQ consoles output all their universes directly from the console – no need for external processing nodes. When modern phones and tablets are capable of streaming HD movies, is it really believable that lighting consoles are limited to calculating only 8 or 16 universes on board?

ChamSys doesn’t try to sell you expensive network processing nodes. The console is complete, fully functional, outputs all universes – one item, one price.

We test our consoles with every channel patched and executing cues to prove that the consoles are more than capable of meeting their specified performance.

MQ80 vs MQ60

Touch Screen: MQ80 has a bigger and higher resolution screen – improved brightness, double the contrast ratio, and much better viewing angle (88/90 degrees all directions).

Buttons and Faders: MQ80 uses wider buttons and faders as used on the MagicQ MQ100 and MagicQ PC Wing Compact.

Power: MQ80 has a more powerful processor which enables handling of more universes and faster graphics.

Size: MQ80 is a bit wider and deeper, meaning it will generally need to be checked baggage rather than cabin baggage.
