UK - Good times mixed with valuable insights at the grand opening of the ChamSys UK head office in Southampton's Brooklands Courtyard.
On 2 September, over 150 lighting programmers and designers from throughout Europe attended the inauguration of the new office, training facility and product development centre. Visitors participated in informative classes, think tanks, and training sessions focused on the new MagicQ and QuickQ software from ChamSys.
Adding a light-hearted touch of drama to the proceedings was a short skit presented by company team members on the history of ChamSys. The skit recounted how company cofounder Chris Kennedy developed his first console at the age of 10. Telling the story of a young man with big dreams, it showed how Kennedy achieved something beyond even his wildest imagination years later when an award-winning ChamSys console was used by Art & Yes to control a record-breaking 64,000 parameters over 186 universes directly without processing nodes.
Also staring in the drama was the MagicQ MQ500 Stadium Console, which was featured in live demonstrations that highlighted its wide range of impressive features.
Following his “acting performance”, Kennedy treated guests to a preview of the new MagicQ MQ70, a compact and aerodynamic console with big-time scalability. Animated light shows controlled by the MagicQ MQ500 followed this introduction.
At the conclusion of the evening, Kennedy invited guests to return to the new ChamSys facility, reminding them that it would be holding multiple training sessions every month.
