MagicQ Stadium Hardware


Thanks to its motorised function, the playback section can be used for multiple purposes with shortcut buttons to change the function. With 15 motorised faders and 15 playback encoders per bank, and up to six banks, a total of 180 playbacks can be accessed at the touch of a button.

In keeping with its versatile design, MagicQ MQ500M 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 are fully motorised and 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 layback 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 MQ500M Stadium Wing lights the way with backlit keys, illuminated fader tracks and encoders, and glowing pockets. 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.

MQ500 Upgrades

An affordable front panel upgrade enables existing Stadium Wing customers to boost their control with motorised faders, playback encoders and illumination.

ChamSys and their distributors carry out a quick and simple procedure to fit an additional power supply and replace the front panel. A new operating system disc gives increased show and media capacity and enables use of up to 256 universes.

The existing chassis, displays and rear panel are retained so customers can continue to use their existing flight cases.

In a similar way, the existing Stadium Wing can also be upgraded with a new front panel to give motorised faders, playback encoders and illumination.
