The Performance You Already Know,
More Portable Than Ever Before.

ChamSys MagicQ MQ250M Stadium brings together power and portability by packaging the complete MagicQ Stadium software in a compact console equipped with the utility needed to handle any large production. A folding HD Multi-touch display and 10 motorised, and backlit, faders gives you advanced control at your fingertips in a portable design.

MagicQ Stadium Hardware

Up To 128 Universes Direct From The Console

On the MQ250M all universes of DMX are available direct through the network ports on the rear of the console over industry the standard lighting protocols sACN, ArtNet and Pathport, without the need for additional processing nodes this console is real value for money.

With its inbuilt UPS, the MQ250M is a complete 64/128 universe stand alone all in one lighting control solution.


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 MQ250M 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.

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 MQ250M 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 MQ250M is built on the proven reliable stadium software which has excelled on shows with thousands of fixtures.

Show files are fully compatible between MQ500M, Stadium Connect 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.


MagicQ Stadium Connect is a PC-based programming interface with the same programming keyset and dual crossfaders as the MQ250M and MQ500M. Outputting 64 universes directly from the wing, 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 backlit playback encoders with executors with plenty of programmable real estate for your show.
