“This award is a tribute to the ChamSys design ethos,” said ChamSys Managing Director Chris Kennedy. “ChamSys has been built on giving the end-user as much freedom and flexibility as possible, because we respect the creativity that’s inherent in the design process.”

Featuring a built-in MagicVis 3D Visualizer with high quality renderings, dual multi-touch displays in full HD with adjustable viewing angles, an intensity wheel, 100mm split crossfaders for theatre control, 42 fader and executor playbacks for live busking, the 200-universe MagicQ MQ500 Stadium provides programmers with a high level of show control while remaining intuitive and user-friendly.

“We’re very honored that some of the best journalists in our industry have seen fit to vote for the MagicQ MQ500 Stadium,” said Kennedy. “As a group, these journalists are very well informed. Not only do they devote a great deal of time to covering this industry, but in many cases, they’re also programmers and designers themselves—so they’re familiar with the issues and opportunities that surround lighting control.”
