0100-0081 Flight Case for MagicQ Compact Console



MQ80 comparison with MQ60

Touch Screen:  MQ80 has a bigger and higher resolution screen - improved brightness, double the contrast ratio, and much better viewing angle (88/90 degrees all directions).
Buttons and Faders:  MQ80 uses wider buttons and faders as used on the MagicQ MQ100 and MagicQ PC Wing Compact.
Power: MQ80 has a more powerful processor which enables handling of more universes and faster graphics.
Size:  MQ80 is a bit wider and deeper, meaning it will generally need to be checked baggage rather than cabin baggage.

THis is a test

The MagicQ MQ80 is an extremely powerful console in a small size, supporting 24 universes direct from the console. The large central touch screen provides easy access to all MagicQ features and display and selection from full lighting plots.

  • 24 Universes
  • 10 Playback faders, 200 Pages
  • 20 Execute buttons
  • 202 virtual playbacks
  • Internal Ethernet Switch
  • In-built UPS
  • External monitor (can be touch)
  • Includes MIDI, Audio and Timecode support
  • Free MagicVis visualiser app
  • Free MagicHD media player app
  • Designed and manufactured in the UK

MagicQ MQ80 features the same flexible lighting control, media server connectivity and in-built Pixel Mapper found in all MagicQ consoles, and uses the same software and show formats, enabling compatibility between all MagicQ products. New shows can be loaded into MagicQ consoles running older software and old shows can be loaded into newer software.

MagicQ software features include easy patching from a library of 12000 fixture personalities, simple attribute selection and programming, flexible live lighting control and a powerful inbuilt Pixel Mapper.

MagicQ MQ80 can be connected via network to a PC or Mac running ChamSys free MagicVis lighting visualisation software for full visualisation of all the universes at no extra cost.

MagicQ MQ80 can also be connected via network to a PC or Mac running ChamSys free MagicHD media player software for output of up to 8 layers of HD media at no extra cost.

MagicQ MQ80 outputs all universes direct over Ethernet using Art-Net I, II or III, Pathport, or Streaming ACN – there is no need for network nodes.

MagicQ MQ80 incorporates high reliability components, including high durability metal Neutrik Ethercon locking connectors for easy and reliable networking. As with other MagicQ consoles, the Ethernet switch is protected by the UPS, thus ensuring that both the console and the network switch maintain operation even during a power loss. 

MagicQ MQ80 features an inbuilt power supply and UPS with locking Powercon connectors that accept voltages from 110V to 240V AC. The MagicQ MQ80 has a Kensington security slot for securing the product. Both soft bags and flight cases are available as optional extras.
