cont09: Chamsys MagicQ MQ100 PRO console, 9216 DMX channels


The MQ100 Expert is the original ChamSys console featuring the familiar and flexible GUI lighting control, media server connectivity options and in-built Pixelmapping for LED. MagicQ Expert utilises the same software and show formats as the MagicQ Pro consoles enabling compatibility between all products in the entire MagicQ range.

With its large in-built colour touch-screen there is no need for external monitors – the control is at your fingertips. Each of the ten theatre style playback controls is electronically labelled to show the current and next steps in the Cue Stack. Eight rotary encoders make controlling individual parameters simple. The MQ100 Expert supports effortless playback of pre-programmed shows whilst allowing instantaneous over-ride via the powerful MagicQ programmer for “busking” those unexpected moments.

MagicQ MQ100 Expert supports six universes (up to 4 direct from the console, up to 6 via Ethernet). With access to up to 202 playbacks through virtual playback controls the MQ100 Expert can handle even the most complex of shows.

Should more playbacks faders be required for a particular show, just connect one or more MagicQ Playback Wings, Execute Wings or Extra Wings. MagicQ supports ArtNet, Pathport and ACN Streaming DMX protocols. MagicQ MQ100 Expert provides an immensely powerful control console in a compact size. Ideal for easy transport, and fitting into small spaces, MQ100 Expert is the console of choice for controlling lighting, video and LED.

Full theatre cue stack control on 10 different playback faders makes easy work of complex shows. Individual channel timing, fully configurable FX, and on screen cue editing enables total artistic freedom. The on screen windows allow instant access to palettes, range information and FX for those moments when busking is required.
