MagicQ Execute Wing
Product Description:Chamsys MagicQ Execute Wing
The MagicQ Execute Wing provides 48 additional Playbacks, consisting of 1 bank of 12 Playbacks with faders and 3 banks of 12 Playbacks with buttons. Each of the 4 banks has separate paging with dedicated Page Up and Page Down buttons.
In addition to use as Playbacks, the 72 buttons on the upper section support a multi-purpose 12 by 6 matrix of buttons, all with individual button legending and LEDs, enabling advanced user configuration for control of media servers, moving lights and LED fixtures.
Pressing and holding the dedicated MENU button brings up the choice of modes on the middle row of execute buttons. The modes include standard Playbacks, Execute, Media, Heads, Palettes, Cues, Cue Stacks, DMX Test and Head Test. The 6 Page Up and Page Down buttons in the matrix section enable paging and access to advanced functions in each of the modes. Changing of modes is possible at any time at the push of the MENU button - the LCD screens and LEDs immediately change to show the state of the buttons in the new mode whilst remembering the state in the previous modes. Additional modes will be added to the MagicQ software as requested - making this the most flexible control matrix in the lighting industry!
The Execute mode maps the 72 buttons as the MagicQ Execute Window - enabling complete user customisation of the buttons. Just like with the Execute Window itself, multiple different Execute windows can be designed and accessed through the button matrix. Changing between different Execute windows is achieved using the Page Up and Page Down buttons.
The Media mode enables the 72 buttons to become Media access buttons just like in the Media Window - giving full access to media server attributes and providing hard buttons for selection of media server banks, media clips and media FX.
The Heads mode enables the 72 buttons to become a matrix of 72 head select buttons - really useful for larger lighting rigs where it can be difficult to quickly access the required fixtures. Separate modes to enable single head or multiple head selection are available.
The Palettes mode automatically splits the Group, Position, Colour and Beam palettes across the 72 buttons - enabling direct access to groups of moving lights and their attributes. All groups and palettes are clearly legended for ease of use. The LEDs in the matrix are used to indicate when the Groups and Palettes are active.
The DMX Test and Head Test modes enable simple testing of individual DMX channels or individual heads using the button matrix - each button representing a DMX channel ora complete head. Pressing the button runs a test on that particular channel or head. Latching and non latching modes are available.
Up to 4 Execute Wings can be connected to a MagicQ console or PC system via USB. The Execute Wing provides maximum flexibility with real button touches and electronic legending for ease of use and portability. Supported by MQ60, MQ70, MQ100, MQ200, MQ300 series consoles.
