MagicHD is a powerful Media Player that is seamlessly integrated with MagicQ software and MagicVis visualiser. MagicHD has been designed to make programming and operating of combined lighting and media shows simple and easy.
MagicVis is a powerful visualisation system fully integrated with ChamSys free MagicQ software to enable lighting designers to pre-visualise their shows, to program blind and to generate rigging paperwork including plots and patch lists.
MagicQ includes in-built support for the FREE MagicQ Remote Control App to remote control MagicQ systems including MagicQ consoles and MagicQ PC Wing solutions.
When a show tours, or is adapted to a new venue, the lighting designer may need to substitute new fixtures for the ones the show was programmed with originally. This can be very time-consuming if the console isn’t equipped with the right tools for the job. While other consoles may offer their own solutions to fill this need, the ChamSys approach is a standout feature that makes experienced operators request MagicQ as their first choice. MagicQ supports Head Morphing, which enables a seamless and quick substitution of one head type to another. MagicQ automatically transfers the programming from the old head type to the new head type, converting the show data as appropriate.
Sometimes a tour stop isn’t just about working new lighting fixture models into the rig. The venue size can often vary and the rig needs to be able to adapt accordingly.
Another scenario touring shows could encounter is the need to reorient moving lights, due to different hanging conditions. This can throw off all the saved looks and require a great deal of reprogramming if the board doesn’t help solve the problem.
Effects (FX) are the lifeblood of most touring lighting designs. When moving lights were a new invention, the creation of those effects took forever and creating them on the fly was terribly impractical. Now, however, a built-in FX engine is standard in any board aimed at controlling this type of lighting fixture. So what sets MagicQ apart now that most boards have some kind of engine?
MagicQ supports FX based on Groups and Palettes. These FX are ideal for touring. In each new venue just update the groups and palettes, and MagicQ recreates the FX automatically.
Group based FX are also ideal for lighting rigs with different numbers of heads in different positions - for example where one truss has 4 heads, another 5 and another 6 - group FX enables spreading the FX across each truss independently.
Not every production that needs lights also has video playing somewhere within it, but nearly every time a video clip makes an appearance on stage, it has to be controlled by something and served by something, before it gets to the equipment that ultimately displays that video.
While ChamSys has their own Media Player, the MagicHD software which you can read about here. , some users might prefer or need to use something else.
Whichever your choice, MagicQ gives you powerful tools that help organize and streamline the work being done with video. It has screens and features dedicated to controlling media servers that really elevate the process to a whole new level.
MagicQ products don’t get used in a vacuum; they get connected to other things. Unless they’re being pre-programmed offline to save a little time in the venue, they will at minimum be communicating with lighting fixtures, dimmers, and other equipment that they are meant to control. When they’re connected together with other MagicQ products, things start to get really interesting, and all sorts of advanced configurations are possible.
While it might be rare for any application to use more than half of these features at the same time, the ability to pick and choose which of them are needed without leaving the MagicQ product family makes it an extremely flexible and powerful choice in lighting control.
MagicQ includes a powerful Pixel Mapping engine that enables images, movies, text and live feed streams to be mapped onto grids of LED fixtures, dimmers or even moving lights. The Pixel Mapper has support for mapping in both 2D and 3D.
The MagicQ Pixel Mapper is fully integrated into the MagicQ software and appears just like an external media server.MagicQ Pixel Mapping enables large numbers of LED elements to be controlled with very simple programming, minimising the programming time and keeping the show file size to an absolute minimum.
