The Chamsys MagicQ MQ80 is an extremely powerful console in a small size, supporting 24 universes direct from the console, but still fits with in checked luggage restrictions.


It has a large 12” central touch screen which provides easy access to all MagicQ features. The high resolution display can display screens such as plot window where fixtures can be selected and focused graphically.


MagicQ MQ80 features the same software found on all MagicQ consoles, and uses the same show file formats, enabling compatibility between all MagicQ products. MagicQ MQ80 can be connected over network to a PC or Mac running the free ChamSys free MagicVis lighting visualisation software, or MagicHD media player software (for output of up to 8 layers of HD media) at no extra cost.


The construction of the MagicQ MQ80 incorporates high reliability components, including durable metal Neutrik locking connectors. As with other MagicQ consoles, the inbuilt 4 port Ethernet switch is protected by the UPS, thus ensuring that both the console and the network switch maintain operation even during a power loss.

The console features an inbuilt power supply and UPS that is compatible with voltages from all over the world, and a Kensington security slot for securing the product. Both soft bags and flight cases are available as optional extras.

Product Rating

“By far the best service I’ve ever experienced. I was importing a product to Canada and the whole experience was quick, easy and seamless. These guys really care about running a good business. Not to mention the price was cheaper than the stores here even after importing. Definitely will do more business in the future.”
