ChamSys MagicQ MQ80 is our lighting console of choice, perfect for any professional lighting designer. The MQ80 is a 24 universe console with 10 playback faders, and 20 execute buttons. It features a centralized touch screen for easy access to features, and displaying and selecting from full light plots. Additional features include 202 virtual playbacks, internal ethernet switch, and the ability to add an additional monitor (including touch). 

What is wonderful about MagicQ is that is works the same across all platforms! So you will experience a similar workflow running it just on a computer as you would on a stadium console. Designed with compatibility to offer LDs the ease of freedom of work, new shows can be loaded into MagicQ consoles running older software and old shows can be loaded into newer software for quickly switching between different consoles. It comes with access to a library of 13,000 fixture personalities for easy patching. It can be connected to a pc to run MagicVis lighting visualisation software and MagicHD media player software for output of up to 8 layers of HD media at no extra cost.

The MagicQ MQ80 is built from high quality components for a long life, such as durable Neutrik Ethercon locking connectors for easy and reliable networking. An inbuilt power supply and built-in UPS ensure that your console and network switch stay operational when there is a lose of power. A Kensington security slot allows for easy locking. The MQ80 can output over ethernet via Art-Net I, II or III, Pathport, or Streaming ACN.
