Outputting 64 universes directly from the Connect, and the ability to pre-vis up to 256 universes, MagicQ Stadium Connect is the ultimate solution for complete control on-the-go. With 10 backlit and motorised faders and 10…

MagicQ Stadium Software

In addition to its rich feature set of core lighting control, MagicQ Stadium Software has inbuilt audio timeline editor, multi emitter colour picker, 3D trackers support and plot

Up to 64 Universes Direct

All universes are available direct from MagicQ PC via industry standard lighting protocols sACN, Art-Net and Pathport, without the need for additional processing nodes.


Thanks to its motorised function, the playback section can be used for multiple purposes with shortcut buttons to change the function. With 10 motorised faders and 10 playback encoders per bank, and up to six banks, a total of 202 playbacks can be accessed at the touch of a button.

In keeping with its versatile design, MagicQ Stadium Connect supports many different fader modes enabling the playback section to be used in a wide variety of applications.

The programmer modes give access to intensities for each patched fixture, to intensities of groups of fixtures or to individual channels of a fixture. The selected modes enable instant access to the intensities or channels of the currently selected fixtures.

The master modes provide instant master control of individual fixtures or groups of fixtures without having to pre-program masters – ideal for those live moments when lights are flaring in cameras or key lights need modifying.

The dual 100mm crossfade faders together with the prominently placed large GO and BACK buttons provide the ultimate theatre control experience.

Playback Encoders

Playback encoders take live operation to new heights. A multi array of different functions can be assigned to the playback encoders with full legending directly above on the display presenting the current function to the user.

The playback encoders can be set to controlling intensity, LTP channels, FX size, FX speed, rate and time.

Playback encoders can control cue stacks of their own, or be tied to the fader playback below, or even control a whole bank of playbacks, or a whole page of playbacks.

Illumination & Customisation

The Stadium Connect lights the way with backlit keys, illuminated fader tracks and encoders. Together with the new updated graphics this takes MagicQ to a whole new level of customisation giving Lighting Designers freedom to visibly configure the console for their needs.

Each playback fader track & playback encoder top has full RGB illumination enabling its function to be clearly indicated. Users can select standard functions or customise each Cue Stack individually – for example to separate the main cues from bump cues.


The MagicQ Stadium Connect is built on the proven reliable stadium software which has excelled on shows with thousands of fixtures.

Show files are fully compatible between MQ250M, MQ500M and all other ChamSys consoles making it easy to move between consoles.

Unique to ChamSys, show files are both forwards and backwards compatible so no need to worry about software versions.
