ChamSys is in the unique position of utilising software developers that are themselves lighting designers. This ingrained knowledge has enabled us to develop a console to meet the needs of the end users rather than the software programmers.
ChamSys board of directors has over twenty years of combined experience in the lighting industry, with varying backgrounds from part owners of lighting hire companies to design consultants on well-known products and lighting designers.
ChamSys software engineers have worked on many different systems, including lighting products, telecommunications products, and computer systems. We have a high level of experience in developing real time systems where reliability and performance are key requirements.
The hardware engineers at ChamSys have had wide experience in all sections of the lighting industry, including laser consoles, moving light systems, industrial and scientific real time control.
MagicQ is designed for ultimate performance – we design and test the console to run multiple Cues and FX and Media on all 32768 channels simultaneously. There is no need to worry about how many channels you patch, how many Windows you open or what media files you are running.
With MagicQ, everything is compatible. The software on each MagicQ console and on MagicQ PC (whether Windows, Mac or Linux) has exactly the same functionality. Show files are completely interchangeable between different MagicQ consoles and between MagicQ PC.
ChamSys was formed in April 2003 by bringing together a team of lighting designers, software engineers and hardware developers. ChamSys’ mission is to utilise the latest technology to bring developments to the lighting console market with the ultimate aim of high performance at low cost with high reliability.
QLX Lighting and ChamSys have a commitment to meeting the needs of lighting professionals using innovative designs and latest technology.
We are proud to see our customers happy and hope you will join them soon!

In our dealings with QLX Lighting they have proven to be professional, efficient and very obliging. We were very happy to work with them in supplying The University Concert Hall Limerick with a ChamSys MQ 100 Lighting desk, and look forward to working with them again in the near future

I have dealt with the staff and equipment of QLX for many years. The staff are truly enthusiastic about their equipment and the work they produce. QLX have been very supportive of the training we provide in the Lir academy and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them as a supplier of equipment at any level.
