USA - One London-based lighting programmer took home a brand-new MagicQ MQ70 console as he triumphed in ChamSys’ Programmers Competition, which took place during the LDI 2019 tradeshow in Las Vegas.
The contest required programmers to programme a large Chauvet Professional rig for a one to three-minute song of their choice using MagicQ with MagicVis Visualization, with the top three entrants invited to playback their entries live at the trade event.
“We were blown away by his incredible work,” said the panel of judges in a statement announcing that Matt Blake had won the contest.
Chris Kennedy, director of ChamSys, added: “Matt made excellent use of the different fixtures on the lighting rig, created lots of different visual effects some static, some moving and made the most of ChamSys powerful control abilities to create a stunning show. This is all the more amazing since it was created without access to the real fixtures, only using ChamSys MagicVis.”
Also earning recognition for their efforts were runners up Cody Atwell of Jacksonville, FL and Brian LaPoint of New York City.
The MagicQ MQ70 console is the latest offering in the compact console range from ChamSys. Small enough to comply with the carry on restrictions of all airlines, including budget carriers, the MagicQ MQ70 features a 10.1” Multi touch display, with illuminated encoder and fader tracks. The console supports 24 universes with an option to expand to 48, and has three network ports enabling ArtNet and sACN direct from the console.
